    Nah, it hasn't run that many cycles. I just put the cartridges in.

    Workforce printers showing new ink cartridges depleted after little use

    Why according to my printers do these aftermarket cartridges deplete their ink so rapidly when I haven't even used them other than for a few test prints? I've got a WF-2630 and a WF-2760. The ones from the pic would be my second set, the first did the same thing, now two of them are useless...

    Pushed alcohol through to old Epson WF-2630 printhead, then died

    It wasn't printing anything with new aftermarket cartridges so I pushed the alcohol through the top with a syringe and tube, took a day with rubber bands to hold pressure on the syringit was that clogged, installed cartridges, system went through "preparing the ink system" then screen went blank...

    Is there a way to print with an epson printer when it wants a new cartridge?

    I'm guessing this pretty common with them, at least the xp series I've got a couple in front of me. As soon as one needs replacing it ceases to work until it gets a working cartridge.

    Do you guys have a method for resealing non-printhead cartridges?

    Not a bad idea. I may try aluminum tape first otherwise I've got a couple old tubes

    Do you guys have a method for resealing non-printhead cartridges?

    Idk if they have a specific name, anyway, do you use a particular kind of tape? I'm imagining a good aluminum tape would work good for this purpose. How would you seal these if weren't planning on using them for a while?

    Canon MP470 with error: 5100 and good cartridges

    Thanks for looking into. I did too and caught that possible solution but it didn't work. Mind you I didn't really get at it as it's deep in there. I'll try again later and maybe see if it's easy enough to open it up....

    Canon MP470 with error: 5100 and good cartridges

    It's used. First time starting it. It shows everything is good, albeit low ink, sits for a bit then starts making some noise then produces this error and you can only turn it off. Without cartridges installed it just waits for you to put them in until it does anything else. What do you think...

    How do you preserve your ink cartridges?

    Thanks! Sounds like a great idea, but I see the point in all the steps. I know that if I put them nozzle down, they leak. Would you recommend upside down? And leave them uncovered? Actually, most of them I drilled holes on top to refill. I think I'll tape and store as you suggest in some...

    Initially ink comes out but then fades even though cartridge is full

    Thanks. I did a new search for "starvation" only in the title and am studying up on the results. Complicated issue!

    Initially ink comes out but then fades even though cartridge is full

    So what do you mean exactly by "ink starvation" and how do you fix it?

    Initially ink comes out but then fades even though cartridge is full

    Well yeah I thought so too but it's full. It will either print blue properly or this faint pink. I wouldn't think it's physically jammed in there. I'd guess it's an electrical issue of a dying cartridge but idk how these things work
