My advice to everybody is to use Wi-Fi now. Anyway, everybody has a Wi-Fi connection at home now, so I would suggest buying a wireless one printer rather than needing to connect your phone/tablet/computer to the printer again and again through an OTG or USB cable.
For the best quality, I would advise you to print on 150gsm glossy paper to really make your photos stand out. The pixel quality will make you go, Wow.
Check this Out:
However, if you are using to print about 10 pages per month, ink works fine without getting dry. The ink tank is outside the window on the right-hand side. Color markings are given over the ink tank.
There is an initial cost when buying, but it is very economical in the long run. Also, when you register with HP, they will give an email address.
As well as 24/7 WhatsApp support provided during the week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The company claims to provide installation and repair within 6 hours.
After installing the printer, press the resume button for approximately 3seconds to print a test page. This test page is basically to do the printer head alignment. Just scan this test document by pressing the copy button, and the printer will be ready for use.
I would suggest maintaining the printer regularly by printing out at least one document.
Inkjet vs. laser printer- Our take:
However, if you want to print photos, stickers, and different materials like glossy paper, you should use an inkjet printer as it passes liquid ink and blends very well with the paper.
Printing 10-30 pages when using an inkjet printer is also advisable.
Yes, you can buy additional printer heads.
Yes, the printer works on inverter battery.
The cost of a refill ink bottle is around 450-500 for each colour and 550-600 for black. Black one is bigger than coloured ones.
The Internet is not needed if you are on the same Wi-Fi network. If you don’t have a router, you can use Wi-Fi directly. Alternatively, you can connect it to your phone via a USB cable.
HP 410 has built-in Wi-Fi, whereas HP 310 is not a wireless support printer.
There is a difference in the capacity of the tanks between both the printers.
Press the Cancel key and Wi-Fi key simultaneously for 3 seconds and see if it works out.
Both printers have the same functions; the only difference is the tank capacity. HP-410 has around 6000 pages, while HP-419 has about 12000 pages of black copies.
Windows 7 or higher
As a result, you need to just press both the wireless and the cancel button on the control panel together at the same time for around three seconds.

Step 3: Install the printheads.
Step 4: Just Load paper into the input tray.
Step 5: Align the printheads and prime the ink system.
