How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Officejet Pro 8715 All-in-One series Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 7 Steps

HP OfficeJet Pro 8715 All-in-One 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 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 check the estimated ink levels from the printer software or from the printer control panel. The icon below displays the estimated ink levels. Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a low-ink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the cartridges until you are prompted to do so. HP recommends that you replace any missing cartridges as soon as possible to avoid print quality issues and possible extra ink usage or damage to the ink system. Never turn off the printer when ink cartridges are missing.

Which ink cartridges do I need for my HP Officejet Pro 8715 All-in-One series Printer?

For your US HP OfficeJet Pro 8715 All-in-One series Printer you need a HP 952 Black Ink Cartridge and 3 color cartridges: HP 952 Cyan, HP 952 Magenta and HP 952 Yellow.

5. Hold the new cartridge so that the cartridge contacts face the printer. Using the color-coded letters for help, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot until until it clicks into place and it is securely installed in the slot. Make sure that you insert the ink cartridge into the slot that has the same colored letter as the color you are installing.

6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each ink cartridge you are replacing.

7. Close the print-carriage access door and wait until the warm-up sequence finishes and your printer is quiet before you proceed.

Align the printhead only if necessary.
Aligning the printhead ensures the high-quality output. The printhead does not have to be realigned when cartridges are replaced. However, you might want to use this feature for print quality issues in printouts where straight lines look wavy or jagged. You can align the printhead from the printer software and from the printer display.

How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile All-in-One series Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 9 Steps

HP OfficeJet 250 All-in-One Portable Printer with Wireless & Mobile Printing (CZ992A)

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 3 times 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.

Printing when one of the ink cartridges is empty
For regular usage, the HP OfficeJet 250 is not designed to print using only one cartridge. However, when one cartridge runs out of ink, you can remove it and use the other cartridge to continue printing. The printer supports this capability only if the cartridge has sufficient ink. Printing with one cartridge might slow the printer and affect the quality of printouts. Therefore, you should replace the empty cartridge as soon as possible.

How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Deskjet F2210 All-in-One series Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 12 Steps

HP DESK JET F2210 PRINTER, SCANNER, AND COPIER ALL IN ONE

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 check the ink levels by using the HP Photosmart Software:
– In the HP Solution Center, click Settings, point to Print Settings, and then click Printer Toolbox. You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog box.
– Click the Estimated Ink Level tab.
The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear.

hp-deskjet-f2210_02
The Check Print Cartridge lights on the Control panel also inform you of the ink-status. The lights indicate the need to reinsert the specified print cartridge, replace the print cartridge, or close the print cartridge door. The Color light appears next to the three color drop icons and indicates that the problem is with the tri-color print cartridge. The Black/Photo light appears next to the single black drop icon and indicates that the problem is with the black or photo print cartridge.

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 Deskjet, but you can use the ink-backup 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 carriage. This printing mode lets you print with a single print cartridge, but it slows the product and affects the quality of printouts. During ink-backup mode, the product can only print jobs from the computer. You cannot initiate a print job from the control panel (such as copying or scanning an original).

For your US, European and UK HP Deskjet F2210 All-in-One series Printer you need
HP 21 Black AND HP 22 Tri-color cartridges OR HP 21XL Black AND HP 22XL Tri-color cartridges.

Remove the back cover.
Removing the back cover, even with the tools provided, is quite difficult when you consider how easy a phone’s cover removes. Be patient and careful. If you’re in a hurry, you might damage the device or even injure yourself. Removing the back cover might take 10 minutes or more. Prepare your tablet by placing it upside-down on a flat surface with some form of soft padding.

Tools needed:
Plastic Opening Pry Tool.
– Potato peeler. Use this with care and only if you do NOT succeed in creating the first open space between the front and rear panel using other special tools.
Precision Phillips Screwdriver.

7. Insert one of the plastic opening tools and carefully pry around the tablet to separate the front and rear panels. There are clips on the back panel you will need to release while you moving around the tablet. Apply pressure to separate the clips that hold the back cover and the rest of the device together. You may need to go around the device several times carefully applying force for it to come apart. If you do NOT succeed in creating the first opening, use a potato peeler for this (at your own risk).

How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Officejet Enterprise Color MFP X585dn Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 9 Steps

HP OfficeJet Pro X585dn Office Printer with Print Security, Remote Fleet Management & Fast Printing (B5L04A)

You can check the estimated ink levels from the printer printer control panel:

– From the Home screen on the product control panel, scroll to and touch the Supplies button. The status of all supply items is listed on the screen.
– To print or view a report of the status of all supply items, including the genuine HP part number for reordering the supply, touch the Manage Supplies button. Touch the Supplies Status button, and then touch either the Print or View button.
Check the percent of life remaining for the cartridges.

Print quality problems can occur when using an ink cartridge that is at its estimated end of life. The supplies status page indicates when a supply level is very low. After an HP supply has reached the very low threshold, HP’s premium protection warranty on that supply has ended. Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you see a low-ink warning or indicator, consider having a replacement ink cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the ink cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable.

Make sure you purchase the right ink cartridges for your specific printer. Cartridges are not compatible between different brands, and often not within the same brand. Hewlett-Packard cannot recommend the use of non-HP supplies, either new or remanufactured. Because they are not HP products, HP cannot influence their design or control their quality. If you are using a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge and are not satisfied with the print quality, replace the cartridge with a genuine HP ink cartridge.

Which ink cartridges do I need for my HP Officejet Pro X451dw Series Printer?
