Designated replacement cartridge Deskjet 6840 does not fit

My cartridge three-color HP Deskjet 6840 #97 on ink was insufficient. I tried to replace it with a #99 Photo. He did not fit into the slot, that I had removed the #97. It turns out that there is a ridge on the top of the #97 which is shifted to the right of the axis of the cartridge. The #99 has a ridge that is offset to the left of the central axis and interferes with a piece for the printer and thus, it can accommodate so not entirely (installation). The manual indicates that the Tri-Color #95 or 97 #, color #99 and #100 grey all work in the 6840.  Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get the #99 knitting (other that cannibalize the cartridge or the printer)?

Note: I have 4 cartridges #99, I intend to use for photo printing and this can be a problem for big $.


The 99 cartridge actually goes into the black cartridge slot. The 97 and 99 are free cartridges because the 99 adds three additional colors (light cyan, light magenta and black in the photo).

  • Cartridge HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One Printer - C310a - does not fit

    I bought the same cartridge number 564, but she does not fit into my printer.  I'm so angry.  All I had to do in the past is the number, but now it seems that is not enough?  How will I know which cartridge fits into my printer.  Thank you.

    564 is the cartridge that I use in my C310a. If you bought the XL (with extra ink), it is a comfortable fit but works.

    Hello! Welcome to the forums of Kathy, aka @kathy954 ,

    I saw your posts about how you can't hold the cartridges in. I found a guide with a video that should help you insert the cartridge.

  • Cable Thunderbolt does not fit into the Thunderbolt ports in my iMac mid-2011

    I have a Mac Mini (purchased in early 2015) I want to fix it up to use at work. I need to reformat home using my iMac (mid 2011) as screen and then copy all files and applications from the iMac to the Mac Mini. Both have ports Thunderbolt. So I bought a Thunderbolt cable from a third party (!) and I'm baffled... the cable, both ends, is part of the Mac Mini but does not fit (either end, either the port, there are 2) in the iMac, no matter how hard I jiggle it. It is not the cable... but I'm confused as to how the TWO ports on my iMac could be wasted. Believe it or not, I have never tried to use before. PS., they are certainly the Thunderbolt ports, with the lightning bolt symbol bit.

    1A everyone has ever encountered this? All my other ports work fine.

    2. is there another way to target display mode in addition to crush on both machines? I found this article: use your iMac as a display with the target - Apple Support Display Mode and it seems that I can use only Thunderbolt, but I wanted to make sure.

    Have you tried to return to the end of the cable? Don't be offended, it's happened.

  • HP Deskjet J110: 8.1 for Windows does not recognize Deskjet J110, does not print. Drive of reloads.

    Hello Floadnar,

    Have you tried with another Usb cable? DC said that "usb not recognized it. You should check also Device Manager for universal serial bus drivers. Finally, you can try to connect both usb cable to check the work of regular printer usb socket or not. you don't need to install the driver. Simply connect the usb cable between the printer and PC. If both USB works with off problem that should not see the unrecognized Usb device message.

  • 8 GB of RAM for DV4-2045DX memory: 8 GB RAM Chip Notch does not fit HP Pavilion DV4 - 2045DX Entertainment Notebook


    Hello. My laptop is HP Pavilion DV4-2045DX Entertainment Notebook with 4 GB of memory which is 2 coins in 2 locations inside the machine.

    Because 4 GB of RAM is not enough to run my system now, I need to upgrade the memory of 8 GB that is 2 chips with 4GB RAM each in 2 slots.

    I bought RAM 8 GB chips online ordering .

    Item number: SoDimm_DDR3_2X4GB_B3377

    After I pulled out the existing RAM chips, I tried to put the new RAM 8 GB chips in 2 slots, but it does not fit the slot. The detail is that the size of the entire chip is shaped, but the notch on the long side of the upper part does not fit the clip into the machine.

    I tried to move clip to match the notch in the RAM chip, but the clip cannot be moved. I guess that there is a mechanism to adjust the clip to match the notch in the RAM chip, but I don't know how to do it.

    My question is:
    Could you please check why the 8 GB RAM chips do not have HP Pavilion DV4 - 2045DX Entertainment Notebook?

    How to adjust the clip to match the notch in the RAM 8 GB chip?

    Thanks in advance.

    It of still expensive but a little more like it:

    There are several options on Just look for DDR2 SO-DIMM.

  • My Deskjet 3520 does not print envelopes. None of the proposed solutions work.

    My DEskjet 3520 does not print envelopes.  I tried all the solutions, and none of them work.  My operating system is Windows XP Professional SP 3.  The computer is a Dell inspiron 530.   There is noe error messages.  When the envelope comes out of the printer, it is empty.  When an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper is in the printer, the address information prints on the right edge of the paper in landscape format.

    My conclusion is that there is a serious error in the software.

    If there is any workaround I would be grateful to receive them.

    Charlie Wingo

    I simply "duped" the copier and formatted the envelope to print in the center of an 8 1/2 X 11 inch paper landscape page.  It took a few violins, but I've got envelopes printing.
