Customer Question

2540 I am having trouble getting the ink refills into the printer. I have put them in before so I am wondering if HP has changed the size of the ink containers. I am trying to put in 61XL which I used before.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your HP is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: The exact model is 2540 and I have had it about two years.
JA: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?
Customer: I am using a PC and the operating system is Microsoft 10.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: Nothing happened. The printer just ran out of ink.
JA: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.
