How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Deskjet 3051A J611 series Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 15 Steps

HP DESKJET 3051A ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER J611H-WIRELESS

Make sure you purchase the right ink cartridges for your specific printer and printer region or have your old ones refilled. Cartridges are not compatible between different brands, and often not within the same brand. Unlike other inkjet manufacturers, HP often designs its inkjet hardware to use country-specific consumables. When you unbox a new HP inkjet printer and set it up, you install a set of ink tanks that ship with the printer. As you turn on the device and get ready to use it, an initialization sequence localizes it to the country associated with the ink cartridges you installed.

HP recommends that you use Original HP ink cartridges. XL (Extra Large) cartridges cost more but do provide better value in the long run. They will be able to print at least double the pages of a regular cartridge. Our advice is that if you print often, go with XL. However, ink can dry up. So if you are not a frequent printer, go with the regular cartridges.

You can easily check the ink supply level to determine how soon you might need to replace a cartridge. The ink supply level shows an estimate of the amount of ink remaining in the cartridges.

To check the ink levels from the control panel:
– From the Control Panel home screen, which displays Copy, Scan, and Quick Forms, press the Setup button.
Select Ink Status.

To check the ink levels from the Printer Software.
– Click the HP All-in-One desktop icon to open the printer software, or open the software from the Start Menu.
– In the Printer Software, click Estimated Ink Levels.

Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a low-ink warning message, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable. You’ll usually install both the black and tri-color cartridges in the HP Deskjet, however, you can use the single-cartridge mode to operate the HP All-in-One with only one print cartridge. The single-cartridge mode is initiated when a print cartridge is removed from the print cartridge carriage. During single-cartridge mode, the printer can only print jobs from the computer.

Which ink cartridges do I need for my HP Deskjet 3051A J611 series Printer?

For your US HP Deskjet 3051A J611 series Printer you need
HP 61 or HP 61XL cartridges.

How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Officejet H470 Printer series – an Illustrated Tutorial in 11 Steps

HP OfficeJet H470 Mobile Printer

Make sure you purchase the right ink cartridges for your specific printer and printer region or have your old ones refilled.

Unlike other inkjet manufacturers, HP often designs its inkjet hardware to use country-specific consumables. When you unbox a new HP inkjet printer and set it up, you install a set of ink tanks that ship with the printer. As you turn on the device and get ready to use it, an initialization sequence localizes it to the country associated with the ink cartridges you installed.

HP recommends that you use original HP ink cartridges. XL (Extra Large) cartridges cost more but do provide better value in the long run. They will be able to print at least double the pages of a regular cartridge. However, (original) HP XL cartridges for the HP Officejet H470 Printer series are NOT available.

You can check the ink levels by using the software (Toolbox) installed with the HP Deskjet.
Open the Toolbox from the HP Solution Center, or from HP Digital Imaging Monitor in the system tray (right click), or from the Printer Properties.
– The tab Estimated Ink Level shows the estimated ink level for each cartridge.

The printer lights also indicate the cartridge status. The left print cartridge light blinks when the left print cartridge is absent or improperly functioning. It turns on solid when the ink is low or empty. The right print cartridge light blinks when the right print cartridge is absent or improperly functioning. It turns on solid when the ink is low or empty.

Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. You do not have to replace the cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable. If one of the print cartridges runs out of ink before you can replace it, you can still print with a single print cartridge. Printing with one print cartridge might be slower and the print quality might be affected. It is recommended to print with both print cartridges.

Which ink cartridges do I need for my HP Officejet H470 Printer series Printer?

Three print cartridges are available for use with the printer.

1. Black
2. Tri-color
3. Photo

Everyday printing: Use the black and tri-color print cartridges for everyday print jobs.
– Quality color photos: For more vibrant colors when printing color photographs or other special documents, remove the black print cartridge and use a photo print cartridge in combination with the tri-color print cartridge.

How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Deskjet 5740 Series Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 10 Steps

HP DeskJet 5740 Color Inkjet Printer

Make sure you purchase the right ink cartridges for your specific printer and printer region or have your old ones refilled.

Unlike other inkjet manufacturers, HP often designs its inkjet hardware to use country-specific consumables. When you unbox a new HP inkjet printer and set it up, you install a set of ink tanks that ship with the printer.

They will be able to print at least double the pages of a regular cartridge. Our advice is that if you print often, go with XL. However, ink can dry up. So if you are not a frequent printer, go with the regular cartridges.

You can check the ink levels by using the software installed with the HP Deskjet. The Device Status window appears each time the printer prints a file. The Ink levels section shows the approximate ink level of each print cartridge.

The Print Cartridge Status lights also indicate the status of the print cartridges. The lights are located in the center of the printer’s control panel.

The left status light represents the tri-color print cartridge, which is installed in the left side of the print cartridge cradle.
– The light is on and solid when the tri-color print cartridge is low on ink.
– The light flashes when the tri-color print cartridge needs to be serviced.

The right status light represents the black OR the photo print cartridge. One of these print cartridges is installed in the right side of the print cartridge cradle.
– The light is on and solid when the black or photo print cartridge is low on ink.
– The light flashes when the black OR photo print cartridge needs to be serviced.

Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. You do not have to replace the cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable. You’ll usually install both the black and tri-color cartridges in the Deskjet, but you can use the Ink-backup Printing Mode to operate the HP Deskjet with only one print cartridge. The ink-backup mode is initiated when a print cartridge is removed from the print cartridge cradle. This printing mode lets you print with a single print cartridge, but it slows the product and affects the quality of printouts. We do not recommend using the photo print cartridge for ink-backup mode.

HP 450Ci Mobile DeskJet Printer

Make sure you purchase the right ink cartridges for your specific printer and printer region or have your old ones refilled. Cartridges are not compatible between different brands, and often not within the same brand. Unlike other inkjet manufacturers, HP often designs its inkjet hardware to use country-specific consumables. When you unbox a new HP inkjet printer and set it up, you install a set of ink tanks that ship with the printer. As you turn on the device and get ready to use it, an initialization sequence localizes it to the country associated with the ink cartridges you installed. HP recommends that you use original new HP ink cartridges.

You can check the estimated ink levels from Toolbox. The Toolbox provides status and maintenance information about your printer. The Printer Status tab displays print cartridge and battery status. Click the Status Information button to display the part number and status information about the installed cartridges, including the estimated amount of remaining ink.

The printer LEDs indicate the printer status and are useful for diagnosing printing problems. The left print cartridge LED lights up in amber when the tri-color print cartridge is low on ink, and blinks when it needs to be replaced. The right print cartridge LED – Lights up in amber when the black or photo print cartridge is low on ink, and blinks when it needs to be replaced.

Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a low-ink warning message, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable. Use the single-cartridge mode to operate the HP Deskjet 450Ci Mobile Printer with only one ink cartridge. The singlecartridge mode is initiated when an ink cartridge is removed from the ink cartridge carriage. Printing with one print cartridge may be slower, and colors will differ from those when both print cartridges are installed. It is recommended to install both print cartridges.

XL (Extra Large) cartridges cost more but do provide better value in the long run. They will be able to print at least double the pages of a regular cartridge. However, (original) HP XL cartridges for the HP Deskjet 450Ci Mobile Printer are NOT available.

How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Deskjet 450CBi Mobile Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 11 Steps

HP 450CBi Mobile DeskJet Printer with Battery

Make sure you purchase the right ink cartridges for your specific printer and printer region or have your old ones refilled. Cartridges are not compatible between different brands, and often not within the same brand. Unlike other inkjet manufacturers, HP often designs its inkjet hardware to use country-specific consumables. When you unbox a new HP inkjet printer and set it up, you install a set of ink tanks that ship with the printer. As you turn on the device and get ready to use it, an initialization sequence localizes it to the country associated with the ink cartridges you installed. HP recommends that you use original new HP ink cartridges.

You can check the estimated ink levels from Toolbox. The Toolbox provides status and maintenance information about your printer. The Printer Status tab displays print cartridge and battery status. Click the Status Information button to display the part number and status information about the installed cartridges, including the estimated amount of remaining ink.

The printer LEDs indicate the printer status and are useful for diagnosing printing problems. The left print cartridge LED lights up in amber when the tri-color print cartridge is low on ink, and blinks when it needs to be replaced. The right print cartridge LED – Lights up in amber when the black or photo print cartridge is low on ink, and blinks when it needs to be replaced.

Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a low-ink warning message, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable. Use the single-cartridge mode to operate the HP Deskjet 450CBi Mobile Printer with only one ink cartridge. The singlecartridge mode is initiated when an ink cartridge is removed from the ink cartridge carriage. Printing with one print cartridge may be slower, and colors will differ from those when both print cartridges are installed. It is recommended to install both print cartridges.

XL (Extra Large) cartridges cost more but do provide better value in the long run. They will be able to print at least double the pages of a regular cartridge. However, (original) HP XL cartridges for the HP Deskjet 450CBi Mobile Printer are NOT available.
