    Epson P400: Buy Refillable Carts from China?

    Yes, I assumed that there are but a few manufactures of these, but the listings on Aliexpress don't really give you the information you need to determine if you are getting a quality product from a reliable vendor. I'm hoping that someone here has a history with a vendor/s and can recommend a...

    Epson P400: Buy Refillable Carts from China?

    I've browsed the forums here looking for info on buying a backup set of empty refillable carts directly from China. The problem is there are so many listings, how does one find a reliable vendor? Anyone have a recommendation for a specific vendor? I'm currently looking at AlliExpress.

    SC-P400 Firmware Update Question

    Thanks for the info, however in going back into the scanning software this morning, I realized that there is more to it than just Epson Software Updater. The scanner software wants me to update the firmware using "Epson Firmware Updater", having never used this app I am a bit nervous to proceed...

    Help Needed Installing Argyll CMS on Mac

    I would like to try this software, but I'm too intimidated by the install info at http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/Installing_OSX.html. I must admit that I've become quite complacent with Mac's "click here and then drag to the Applications Folder." I have only downloaded the "Argllcms" software...

    Empty Cart Installed - Do I have a Problem?

    Well you were spot on, remove, fill, reinstall, head cleaning, that was exactly what I did and I am back in business. It did need the one head cleaning as the nozzle check showed the GO was not spraying a full pattern. Lesson learned for both me and my wife!!!

    Empty Cart Installed - Do I have a Problem?

    Last week I received my new, (Epson refurbished), P400, plus I ordered a set of refillable carts and ink from Precision Color. Yesterday while I was away, my wife made several prints when the GO low ink indicator came on. Not knowing about the empty refillable carts, she proceeded to replace the...

    Refill Carts for the Epson P400, Need Advice

    Thank you for your response, this is very helpful. Yes, I purchased a refurb directly from Epson, my thought is that it will have gone through bench testing and I will avoid getting a lemon. A new unit cost only $11 more, but I feel more comfortable with the refurb. Being a refurb, I suspect...
