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 recommends that you use original Canon ink cartridges. If the cartridges are labeled as Canon FINE Cartridges, the cartridges have a mechanical printhead built into the cartridge, instead of being installed into the printer.

Check the estimated ink levels
You can check the estimated ink levels from the Canon printer software and from the LCD display on the printer. The red lights (LEDs) on the front side of the ink cartridge also give an indication of the ink status. 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.

Red Ink lights (LEDs) on the cartridge
Lights continuously: The ink tank is correctly installed.
Flashing slowly (3-second intervals): The ink is running low. Purchase or prepare a new ink tank. You might need one soon.
Flashing fast (1-second intervals): Ink has run out.
Off: The ink tank or the ink head is not installed properly or the function for detecting the remaining ink level is disabled.

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. However, at the time of writing, only standard yield cartridges for this printer are available, no XL or XXL versions. A new Canon printer usually includes a complete set of starter ink cartridges. Starter cartridges are filled with less ink than a standard yield cartridge. However, it appears that this printer ships with regular standard yield ink cartridges.

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 TR150 Printer?

For your US Canon PIXMA TR150 Printer you need a Canon PGI-35 black cartridge AND a Canon CLI-36 color cartridge. The cartridges mentioned above are also available in three-in-one valuepacks. At the time of writing, XL versions of these cartridges are NOT available.

Canon sells most of their cartridges in a standard yield size and a high yield or XL. Some cartridges are also available in extra-high yield, or XXL. 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 and XXL cartridges cost more but do provide better value in the long run. Our advice is that if you print often, go with XL or XXL. 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.

Two different black ink tanks
There are two kinds of black ink in the printer: dye ink (BK) and pigment ink (PGBK).
The dye ink is used mainly for printing photos, illustration, and the pigment ink is used for text-based documents. Each has different purposes so that even if one runs out, another will NOT be used instead. If either of them runs out, the ink tank replacement is required. These two inks are automatically used depending on the type of printing paper or the settings of the printer driver. You cannot change the usage of these inks yourself.

Which ink cartridges do I need for my Canon PIXMA TS9521C Printer?

For your US Canon PIXMA TS9521C Printer you need a Canon PGI-280 black (pigment) cartridge AND 4 Canon CLI-281 color (dye) cartridge OR the XL or XXL versions. The 4 Canon CLI-281 color cartridges are also available in multiple value packs.

How do I replace an empty Fujifilm Instant INSTAX® Mini 11 film cartridge?

1. Make 100% sure there isn’t any unused film currently in the camera. Otherwise, you might exposure the film and probably ruin it. You can check this by looking at the small window to the left of the viewfinder. If it is yellow, then there is an empty or full plastic film cartridge inside your camera. Make sure the film counter on the bottom right of the camera displays an ‘S‘, after taking the last picture (1), which means all the film has been used and the empty cartridge should be replaced with a new one. Never open the back cover, when there are unused pictures left in the camera.

2. Make sure the 2 AA-size alkaline batteries (penlite) are installed into the battery compartment. Once installed the batteries will usually have enough power to be used for approximately 10 INSTAX Mini film packs (100 exposures). The batteries are placed in a dedicated battery compartment. This means you can replace the batteries, while there’s still film in the Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 11. When you replace the batteries, always keep the camera OFF.

3. Remove the new cartridge from its packaging. Open the protective foil of the film package and take the cartridge out. Do this gently. Avoid bending the cartridge or put pressure on it. Do not try to open the plastic cartridge, it should be installed into the camera complete and unopened. Once out of the protective foil, hold the cartridge by it’s sides.

Open the film door of the camera by pulling the latch on the film door to the right and pulling the film door away from the camera. Be careful to hold the film camera by the body and not the film door as it could break.
