    Has anyone used Precisions chipless kit for the SC-P800?

    I do not have experience with SC-P800 but I bought mine chipless firmware for my workforce through chiplessolutions and it works well though it no longer tracks ink level and remains full at all time. Unsure on how it will behave on P800. On P800, chipless is the cheap way to go! Save those...

    Canon image CLASS MF642Cdw

    Laser printer performance are based on the quality of your toner/drum. From my experience with MF-634CDW, I had waited about 5 years before aftermarket toner get decent quality but still not perfect. Expect 1-3 lines of screen tear or toner leak in IBT. Messy to clean up! My cartridge is...

    Recommendation Needed: Reliability of Newer Generation Printhead

    Yes, usually I can speed this up by inject/prime the pharmacist formula into the ink chamber prior to installing the cartridges. I strongly believe the other issue with this is there is not enough head pressure especially from aftermarket cartridge that requires priming. I have pretty good...

    Anyone have an Epson printhead that flows but doesn't work? I want it! - ART PROJECT

    Are you looking for printhead with pressure activated spray instead electronic activated? Imo, most of Epson Workforce printhead partial failure are from electronic failure and not because of nozzle plug. If this is what you need, I do have some to give away. You will have to pay for...

    Canon Pro-100 Firmware 2.041

    I always overfill because ink is cheap :-). Usually, I let it overfill and put in storage. With everything sealed and vent taped off. I only let it drip out prior to install into the printer and open the tape on vent. Yes, my sponge is stored with excess. I figure this is a good thing to...

    Recommendation Needed: Reliability of Newer Generation Printhead

    Yup, you are correct! I got the 2 printhead. One is 100% clog and the other is 90% clogged. Damn "reputable" seller. Gonna give it a clean and try it again! My optimism really taken a hit lol. Good thing the Maxify is so reliable. Tested cheap refillable carts and did a few clean cycles (5...

    Canon Pro-100 Firmware 2.041

    For the sponge, it looked like normal with the typical nozzle imprinted. I would say it looked like any other color in term of wetness. On going forward, I am going do the drip test by taking out the top filling hole to see drip performance. For reconditioning/washing the sponge, I know they...

    Can original OEM Epson ink (designed for "ink tank" Epson printers) be used in a Epson Workforce Pro WF-7840 with original OEM cartridges?

    It was a dud purchase of 252XL cartridge on Ebay: they send me cart with priming chamber. It does not match listing. Inkowl has no prime cartridges so I just ordered from them. In addition, I also ordered a set of Maxify cartridge too because they are sealed/pressurize design with no priming...

    Need two sets of empty CLI-42's

    I do not know what GASP means. So you would like cartridges with sponges that are still wet and has been capped at ink extraction port to prevent dirt accumulation? With this request, I would recommend contact the ebay seller directly or get in touch with your local listing poster. With the...

    For 7720 and 7620, they do not make it anymore. WF-7720/7710 translate to WF-7840/7820 respectively: the numbering changes for some reason. You can get 7720/7620 easily on Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist. Most likely the printhead is clogged and unrecoverable. I am buying a few printhead...

    Canon PRO-100 or PRO-100s Waste Ink Pads full?

    Yes, that is correct. You can hear the USB disconnect and reconnect. See the attachment for device manager detection while in service mode. For the Pro-100, this happens with 4 times with the stop/resume button. I am 100% sure is not 5 times! 5 times it just sit there and does nothing: no...

    Picard is within the States. The shipping from UK to US is pretty high imo. If you want cheap price route but you will have to mod and clean. You will have to do this sooner or later so I suggest starting with it to get best quality! I recommend refill German method after mod/cleaning: I...

    Recommendation Needed: Reliability of Newer Generation Printhead

    Smile, how long ago did this happened to you? Also, I recommend to stay with Paypal to avoid issue. Eventhough they were under one umbrella, Paypal has been fair for me. Amazon and Ebay is the two primary market for me. Aliexpress and local listings are alternatives.

    Reposting my reply from welcome post! Epson cartridge has not been modifiable since the last decade unless you have the Pro series with ink bag. You only option is aftermarket with Epson. You are welcome to explore and teach us on your success or failure. From my research, WF-7840 has no...

    Problem with WF-7720 252 Ink Cartidges

    Are you using aftermarket ink or are you using refillable? If you are using aftermarket, make sure the vent seal are torn out. If refillable, try to get cartridge without priming chamber. If you have priming chamber, make sure ink is always above that priming chamber! Also make sure the vent...
