My HP printer said that the printheads were OK, but I was getting bands of missing black ink which repeated cleaning would not resolve. B&H did a great job shipping quickly and packaging properly, and having competitive prices. I installed the new printhead according to the directions and the banding problem went away - for 1 printout. Then the printer said I had a faulty printhead. I pulled the printhead out and found that the contacts of the printhead were coated with a waxy substance. I wiped that off, reinstalled the printhead and now it works OK. I docked one star for the dirty printhead contacts. I had removed the printhead from the HP sealed package and immediately installed it, so the contamination was on it prior to sealing the package. The instructions don't say anything about cleaning the contacts prior to installation.

Machine was 3 years old HP says "cannot not fix such an old machine, truthfully do not waste/bother putting print head in". I wasted over $100 on ink trying to get my printer with under 1500 sheet usage to work. Feel very burned. The one star is because they did have a recycle program so sent both this and prior 11x17 format printers back for recycle/taking apart responsibly. Othwise No STARS.

    Comments about HP 88 Printhead (Black and Yellow):

    I am so pleased with the ease of this site and the care taken to get the product to me quickly and safely. I am impressed by the care taken by the packer of my print-head so that it arrived intact and a day earlier than expected. It works perfectly and I will purchase my print-heads from your company again because I also like the price-tag. Thank you so much for the opportunity to provide feedback on your job well done.

      The HP 88 print head is easy to install and makes all of the difference in printing color photos. I have used my printer for seven years to print photos. Replacing the print heads is like obtaining a new printer.

                      Bought this product but once it was installed the black printing did not improve. So now I have a printer with a new black ink cartridge and new printhead costing over [$] and still can't print legible black copies.

                                            [...] it cured my problem. HP Wanted me to get a new copy machine but it was only a 1 1/2 years old. It now works like new again. Thanks
