How To Replace The Ink In Canon Pixma TS3100 / TS3122 Printers
The best choice for replacing your ink cartridge is to buy them from the same brand as your Inkjet printer. The standard PG-245 and CL-246 ink cartridge pack have a high yield of 8.9ml and 9ml of ink, respectively. The ink cartridges can approximately print out 180 pages. It holds more ink compared to the starter ink cartridges like PG-243 and Cl-244 and lasts longer as well. It has a counterpart as well, like the PG-245XL and CL-246XL, that holds more ink than the standard ink cartridge and has a higher page yield of approximately 300. However, the latter can be more expensive than the former.
The Canon ink cartridges are genuine, so it won’t negatively affect your printer. Quality-wise, ink cartridges bought from Canon ensures quality sharp black prints and especially for colored photos. The price can be high, however, but some sellers offer promos such as 1 black and 1 colored ink cartridge for the price.
Please take caution when you buy outside of the official Canon store though, as there are sellers who sell who claim their products are genuine Canon ink cartridges but aren’t. One buyer’s experience was terrible as the newly bought ink cartridge turned out to be empty while another lasted less than a month. Some buyers got the genuine ink cartridges, too, and they were ecstatic that not only did it fit their printer model but also worked well as expected.

The remanufactured cartridges from OfficeWorld, although off-brand, are easy to install and worked just the same as that of Canon ink cartridges at a lower price.

Considering that its price range is located in the middle, it’s not the best in terms of quality, but it isn’t the worst according to one buyer.
One buyer bought such an item and wasn’t happy with the output because the ink cartridge left streaks and smudges. When they reached out to customer service, the company explained that the buyer received a defective product and offered to send a replacement. The package came out well and came in mint condition. It also worked like that of the real Canon ink cartridge and would order one again in the future.
