      Lasted Less Than 2 Months

      By SQ

      from Pittsburgh, PA

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about HP 940 Black/Yellow Printhead Cartidge:

      One of the new print heads failed less than 2 months after installing the replacement cartridge right when I was printing out color final exams for my students. With a 14-day return policy on purchased items, I could not get a refund and was told by on-line help chat that I would have to contact the manufacturer. Ended up having to spend another $65 because this is a proprietary product as well as, because this is an on-line only purchase, could not use the printer for two days until the replacement arrived. This is an expensive replacement with no recourse satisfaction.

      Replacing HP 940 Printheads

      By Stuart

      from Miami

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about HP 940 Black/Yellow Printhead Cartidge:

      Printer performance had degraded significantly over the last year, probably due to the fact that this HP Officejet Pro 8500 Premier printer is only used for approximately 6 months of the year and then only sporadically. Frequent attempts to clean the printheads were unsuccessful, culminating in the printer not being able to complete the alignment process when starting up after the old printheads had been removed and replaced. Ordered new magenta/cyan and black/yellow printheads online from Staples, they were delivered the next day, and on installation the printheads were successfully aligned and printing is now perfect.

      Does the job as a necessary evil

      VERDICT:
      If you start getting lines in printout that "printer-head cleaning" can't fix--- just go ahead and replace the printer head, or both at the same time.
      REVIEW:
      The trade-off to affordable ink is semi-permanent ink heads and that's where this little dude comes into play.
      I started getting lines through my printouts only about 26K BUT 3.5yrs into both print-heads of my HP Office Inkjet Pro 8500A. HP states these should do AT LEAST 10K printouts but I wouldn't be surprised if HP purposely make these heads expire (like the ink cartridge) regardless if they are consumed yet.
      I repeatedly manually removed and cleaned the print-head with alcohol.. I mean it was immaculate... and ran the print diagnostic cleaner mode a few times (easily takes more that 15-20 mins) and was able to squeeze another week out of my printer-heads till I broke down a purchased this. Drop-in and problem solved. I did BOTH (yep there is another one) print-heads at same time to ensure reliable service.
      The only negative I have is a rant about the wickedness of HP locking their printers (at least of this generation) to not operate black-only printing if ANY color. As a result both print-heads and all tanks must have ink (and not expired) to print a B&W report. Oh, and don't try those knock-off or refilled cartridges... many won't work because when someone inserts a cartridge HP (big brother) automatically registers that cartridge serial number online and limits how many total pages it can print.. regardless of capacity. Yeah... HP can be a bit insane.

      The HP Magenta and Cyan Printheads

      The HP Magenta and Cyan Printheads (C4901A) are excellent to purchase for your computer. I'm favored toward HP Products. My first desktop computer was a HP. It lasted for many years.

      Purchase of HP C4901A cartridge

      Comments about HP 940 Black/Yellow Printhead Cartidge:

      The HP 940 magenta/cyan printhead C4901A bought on-line from Staples was deliveed on-time (the only problem was that UPS misdelivered it to a neighbor, who took the trouble to redelliver). I installed the printhead without any problems, and everything works vey well. It was a good decision on my part to choose Staples as the on-line store to buy from.

            I wish my local store would carry these because I had to wait to print a market analysis for a client. I thought I could just go to the store and buy one but was informed you have to order these online.
