Make sure you purchase the right Memory Card for your Smartphone. Your LG K10 built-in memory is 16GB. Users who demand more memory from their Phone can install an external microSD or microSDHC (High-Capacity) memory card with a maximum capacity of 32 GB.

Many microSD Cards come with an SD Card adapter for compatibility with SD-enabled devices, such as cameras, camcorders and (notebook) computers. Memory cards usually come pre-formatted and do not need to be formatted out of the box.

We recommend storing multimedia files (such as music, videos and pictures) on an external memory card in your device to free up your device’s internal memory for applications. Plus, if you buy a new Smartphone, you can simply put your external memory card in your new device and all your data is back immediately.

The SD Association defines standard speed classes indicating minimum performance to record video. The class indicates the minimum writing speed: Class 2 = 2 MB/s, Class 4 = 4 MB/s, Class 6 = 6 MB/s, Class 10 = 10 MB/s. A fast Class 10 card is the best option these days, especially for recording or playing Full HD video.

MicroSD cards are usually shipped preformatted with the FAT file system. Your LG K10 supports only the FAT file structure. If you insert a card formatted with a different file structure, your device will ask you to reformat the memory card. Formatting your memory card on a PC may cause incompatibilities with your device.

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


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.
For your European or UK HP Deskjet 3051A J611 series Printer you need HP 301 or HP 301XL cartridges.

8. Repeat these steps to replace the other cartridge, if necessary.

9. Close the cartridge access door.

10. Press the button next to OK on the control panel display. The printer prints an alignment page.

Align the cartridges
Aligning the cartridges ensures high-quality output. The HP All-in-One prompts you to align the cartridges every time you install a new cartridge. If you remove and reinstall the same print cartridge, the HP All-in-One will not prompt you to align the print cartridges. The HP All-in-One remembers the alignment values for that print cartridge, so you do not need to realign the print cartridges.

11. Lift the scanner lid.
12. Place the alignment page with the printed-side down on the right-front corner of the scanner glass. See the engraved guide next to the scanner glass for help loading the alignment page.

13. Close the scanner lid.
14. Press the button next to OK on the control panel display. The product automatically aligns the cartridges.
15. When the Alignment successful message displays on the control panel screen, press the button next to OK on the control panel display to complete the alignment.

The alignment page did not print?
If the printer did not print an alignment page, follow these steps to manually align the printer:
– In the HP Printer Software, click Printer Actions and then click Maintenence Tasks to access the Printer Toolbox. The Printer Toolbox appears.
Click Align Ink Cartridges on the Device Services tab. The product prints an alignment sheet.
– Now go back to step 11.
