HP printer cartridges, anywhere lakeside?


Recommended Posts

ISO HP printer cartridge lakeside as mine won’t accept the “generic” version I had in reserve.  Does any sell these locally as I really need one yesterday, LOL!

ive ordered from Amazon Mexico but that doesn’t arrive until Thursday.

Thanks, in advance, for any information that may be helpful.

Val 😀

Suggestion for next online order.

Mercadolibre products marked "full" arrive in Chapala in 1 day and they even deliver on Sunday.  When you search.... on the left scroll down and check the green word "Full" and your search will only display those products.

There should be another thread on this forum for same subject.  From Ajijic plaza the street running East to West you go about 1 to 2 blocks West and on lake side is shop selling HP cartridges.  I bought there before when couldn't get at Walmart.  They have good selection.  Hope they are open.

I’m interested because had to get from Amazon as well when Walmart was out.  The 2 local places mentioned above would be one on Hidalgo (west from Bancomer) and then other would be on Ocampo as described, the street below Hidalgo towards lake.  Are there really 2??

Many thanks for the quick input.  Fortunately, I was able to scan and put on a thumb drive the documents that needed to be printed, signed, scanned and returned by using my husband's computer and OLD printer, LOL.

Also, thanks for the tip about Mercado Libre, I'll compare prices with the local locations as well as Costco, Office Depot and Amazon.

We gave up on HP cartridges. Could not find our HP# ink even at Best Buy’s. Bought an Epson Ecotank using bottled inks and after almost a year have hardly used any ink at all. 7000 B&W copies and 4000 color. Won’t need ink for a long time.

There is a store on Ocampo just past Manix Restaurant if you are travelling east.  They sell both HP and generic brands.  Both seem to work in my printer.

I am sure we are talking about the same shop.  I remember it was near Manix restaurant so I may have wrong street.

That was the best place to go 5 to 10 years ago when I had that kind of printer. And to the best my knowledge, it still is today

If my memory serves (questionable), Martin was the owner of this great place on Ocampo.  I think he and his wife split and his health deteriorated with diabetes in the last year or so. It's so sad as both are/were wonderful people.  If she is continuing to run his business, I'd be more than happy to give her my business.  Lovely, sweet lady and perhaps trying to rear kids without a Dad, present.

Stay safe!

This is just a suggestion based on my own experience. 

I have used a Brother laser printer for years, but left it behind when we moved here 4 years ago. I foolishly bought an Epson inkjet when we were setting up. That damn inkjet cost me a bloody fortune in ink! My last forms to vote in the Presidential primary cost me $900 for new ink and by the time I finished they were half gone.

I immediately sold the sh#tty inkjet and bought another Brother. It prints in black only which is all I need. It is reliable, prints 500-700 pages from one cartridge, and there is no issues with clogged or dried out jets. I can't tell you how much cheaper and less of a headache laser printers are.
