Can any HP printer ink cartridges be interchanged with any others?
I have an HP 5550 deskjet printer and it takes HP 56 (black) and HP 57 ink cartridges. My friend has had a lot of different printers and subsequently has a bunch of (new) HP printer cartridges laying around, but as luck would have it, no HP 56.
Are there any other HP cartridges that will work in it's place/are interchangeable ? He has HP 14, HP 29 and several others and he said I could buy them for $ 5.00 each if I could use them.
Will any of them work in place of the HP 56 or are they very particular to the printer ? Physically, some of them look very close and could possibly fit, but I don't know if they will actually work just because they may "fit".
Does anyone know if there are any HP inks that can be swapped in place of the HP 56 ? Or am I gonna have to bite the bullet and pay the $ 30 - $ 40 for a new one ?
Thanks for any help anyone can give....
Have a blessed evening....
