Is it possible to use the HP 5255 without subscribing to Instant Ink service from HP? I wish to control the ordering and purchasing the cartridges myself. Will the 5255 software allow this?
Asked by: Partha
Yes of course. Just a quick FYI. Although compatible inks work perfectly in the printer, I do believe that the use of them while your printer is still under warranty will void that warranty.

Does the HP 5255 print on A4 size paper?

Does the HP 5255 print on A4 size paper?
Asked by: Partha
While the paper does load into the tray, you can’t close the tray door so you keep getting the error that the door is open and it won’t print. You can load in one sheet at a time for the manual feed but the surface area for printing is less than 12 inches so only part of the page will print.
