HP designed the Officejet Pro 8600 Ink as an office and heavy-duty home-based printer for those with high printing needs.
What kind of ink does HP 8600 use?
The HP 8600 uses the company’s branded HP 950 black cartridges and HP 951 color cartridges. You can upgrade to an HP 950XL or HP951XL cartridge, which provides more prints.
How do I change the black ink cartridge on my HP OfficeJet Pro 8600?
Changing a cartridge is easy:

- Wait for the cartridges to stop moving
- Push on the front of the cartridge you want to replace to release it
- Pull it out of its slot gently, being careful not to damage the printer
- Replace it with the new cartridge, pushing it until it clicks into place. The colored label on the cartridge needs to match the label on the slot

How much ink is in an HP ink cartridge?
A standard HP 950 cartridge will yield 1,000 printed pages of text, while a 950XL offers 2,300.
Is the HP Officejet Pro 8600 laser or inkjet?
Although the HP Officejet Pro 8600 is targeted at business consumers, it’s still classified as an inkjet printer. Here, ink cartridges contain a large amount of solvent, which the ink jet head deposits on the paper. It is a different system from laserjet printers, where a laser creates static electricity on the page to attract a powdered toner.
