Important Ink Cartridge Information for the TM-J2100
The TM-J2100 has a two part cartridge, with black ink in one side
and colored ink (either red, green, or blue) in the other side.
Therefore, the TM-J2100 has two INK OUT LEDs, one for the black
part and one for the color part.
When you need to replace either part of the two part cartridge, first
follow steps 1 through 4 above.
After you remove the cartridge, check the INK OUT LEDs. You need
to replace the part corresponding to the LED that is flashing.
Separate the two parts as shown in the illustration below. Use a
new cartridge for the color corresponding to the INK OUT LED that
is flashing and fit the two parts together as shown in the illustration
below; then carefully insert the combined two part cartridge,
continuing with steps 5 through 7 above.
Note:
If both LEDs are flashing, replace the whole cartridge.
