How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Deskjet F2110 All-in-One 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. 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 Services tab, and then click Service this device.
– Click the Estimated Ink Level tab.
The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear.

The Check Print Cartridge light on the Control panel indicates the need to reinsert the print cartridge, replace the print cartridge because something is wrong, or close the print cartridge door.

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).


Which ink cartridges do I need for my HP Deskjet F2110 All-in-One Printer?

For your US, European and UK HP Deskjet F2110 All-in-One Printer you need HP 21 Black AND HP 22 Tri-color cartridges OR HP 21XL Black AND HP 22XL Tri-color cartridges.

How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the Canon PIXMA TS202 Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 11 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. Canon often designs its inkjet hardware to use country-specific consumables. When you unbox a new Canon 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. Canon recommends that you use original Canon ink cartridges, which they call FINE cartridges.

Check the estimated ink levels
You can check the estimated ink levels from the Canon printer software. The ink level detector is mounted on the printer to detect the remaining ink level. The printer considers as ink is full when a new cartridge is installed, and then starts to detect a remaining ink level. If you install a used cartridge, the indicated ink level of it may not be correct. In such case, refer to the ink level information only as a guide.

To check the ink levels from the printer software (Windows):

Open the printer driver setup window:
– Select the print command from your application software. The Print command can generally be found in the File menu.
Select your printer model, and click Preferences or Properties. The printer driver’s setup screen appears.

You can also display the printer driver’s setup screen by clicking the printer icon:
– Select Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Devices and Printers.
Right-click the icon of your model. When the menu appears, select Printing preferences.

Canon IJ Status Monitor
The Canon IJ Status Monitor displays the printer status and the printing progress. You can also use it to check the remaining ink level and the cartridge types for your model. The Canon IJ Status Monitor launches automatically when print data is sent to the printer. When launched, the Canon IJ Status Monitor appears as a button on the task bar. Click the button of the status monitor displayed on the task bar. The Canon IJ Status Monitor appears. To open the Canon IJ Status Monitor when the printer is not printing, open the printer driver setup window and click View Printer Status on the Maintenance tab.

Canon sells most of their cartridges in a standard yield size and a high yield or XL. Some printers also use extra-high yield, or XXL cartridges. All cartridge sizes are the exact same size and install in your printer the same way, the only difference is the amount of ink that is inside the cartridge. XL (Extra Large) cartridges cost more but do provide better value in the long run. 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. A new Canon printer includes a complete set of starter ink cartridges. Starter cartridges are filled with less ink than a standard yield cartridge so you shouldn’t expect to get very many prints out of them before they need 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.

Single cartridge
If an ink cartridge runs out of ink, you can print with either the color or black ink cartridge. However the print quality may be reduced compared to when printing with both cartridges. We recommend to use a new ink cartridge in order to obtain optimum qualities. Even when printing with one cartridge only, print with leaving the empty ink cartridge installed. If either the color ink cartridge or black ink cartridge isn’t installed, an error occurs and the printer can’t print.


Which ink cartridges do I need for my Canon PIXMA TS202 Printer?

For your US Canon PIXMA TS202 Printer you need a Canon PG-245 black cartridge AND a Canon CL-246 color cartridge OR the XL versions: Canon PG-245XL black cartridge AND a Canon CL-246XL color cartridge. All cartridges mentioned above are also available in two-in-one valuepacks.

If you would like to use cheaper but genuine Canon cartridges for your Canon PIXMA TS202, consider purchasing Canon PG-243 AND CL-244 cartridges. They contain about 2/3 less ink, but are fully compatible with the standard 245/246 cartridges.
