HP 950 and 951 Ink Cartridges - What Are SETUP Cartridges?

Some HP printers ship with HP 950 and 951 cartridges that are marked SETUP. When you first install a new printhead you must install the SETUP cartridges that came with the printhead. When the SETUP cartridges are depleted, make sure you use replacement cartridges purchased from a retailer, not SETUP cartridges.

CAUTION: Failure to install SETUP cartridges with a new printhead causes a cartridge error.

Installing new SETUP cartridges after a printhead has been in use also causes a cartridge error.
