Re: HP 5500 plotter ink tube assembly replacement

Thank You for the info., since the cartridges are so large I thought it must be in that range. Did the tubes Friday with original ink cartridges, except for the cyan which was the color causing the printing issues. Everything went as planned. Thanks Again. FYI, Replaced cyan ink cartridge, tubes and cyan printhead.
