How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the DeskJet Ink Advantage 1115 series Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 10 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 an ink cartridge. The ink supphttps://replacethatpart.com/wp-admin/upload.phply level shows an estimate of the amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridges.
To check the ink levels from the HP printer software (Windows)
Open the HP printer software.
– In the printer software, click the Estimated Ink Levels tab.

Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a low-ink warning message, 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. You can use the single-cartridge mode to operate the DeskJet Ink Advantage 1115 with only one ink cartridge. The single-cartridge mode is initiated when an ink cartridge is removed from the ink cartridge carriage.
