As I stated, I did correct that post. Twice.
I already decided to abandon that 'doom to failure' printer model and any others like it some posts ago. I don't give up that easily and yes, I like to 'deep deeper', if necessary, but not to a point of drowning. ;)
Again, the whole deal was to see...
I thought there had to be something to all of this.
I realize asking this in a Canon forum (based on the traffic count for the big 3 printer manufacture sub-forums) that I would be waiting a while before someone to step up to the plate which you just did.
Let me ask this, what printer series...
I didn't either until 3 or so years ago, then twice in the same year (different machines, different PH's). Nothing since. In was approaching DEFCON 2. Talk about "hard knocks".
Looks like I'm not the only one to graduate from there;
I was under the impression after reading into that, was it worked both ways the PCB taking out the printhead or the printhead taking out the PCB. Both due to shorting out of one or the other. But, it continued into newer models, but I didn't see any point it was really resolved.
One would think...
I already pulled the plug. One of the tanks was empty and I wasn't going to go thru the trouble to buy 1 tank since this design was doomed from the start with wht appears to be unavailable (in the US) 3rd party ARC carts with limited number of 'resets'.
Beside after reading reviews of this...
I understand that, I've done that more than once with Canon printers even thou the process itself is much easier. As you know the 'refrib' process is usually not successful.
My object is to try it with the knowledge of at least doing so, successful or not. We aren't talking about a lot of money...
The "X" being in the printer dialog box for ink levels of the 4 tanks?
Do you get some advance notice when the tanks are running low, before they go almost dry?
I do the same thing with the present printer I've been using. a full set of re-filled and reset carts ready to go so all I have to do...
I didn't know there was some limit to asking questions, since other than reading, that;s how I've always expanded my knowledge. I prefer that to the 'school of hard knocks'.
AFA as "sticking with Canon", I have in the past, but I felt it was time fro a change.
Is there something wrong with that?
Maybe for most, but I'm not most and neither are probably most here.
And, I'm familiar with these 'refurbished' PH's.
As to Canon PH's after over 18 years with canon, I'm more than familiar with the technology.
As to Epson, yes, if the head is allowed to dry out and flushing and/or soaking...
Of course the manufacture wouldn't "advise" that, no more will they "advise" using 3rd party inks that most (knowledgeable) users (that don't drink the Corp. KoolAid) have done for decades.
They can't sell new printers when users 'fix' the old ones themselves, can they?
Then how do you account for these available by the hundreds?
Just because it isn't a separate item 'supply' item like a ink tank, doesn't mean a user can't replace it. (I corrected my OP...
Mostly documents, color web pages (captures), some photos, drawings, charts etc. Yearly count; maybe 5k prints all together, scanning documents & hi-res color photos also. No faxing.
Admittedly, I haven't looked into any of those "tank/mega' printers, 22 years of refilling, I'm use to the 'old...
I'm thinking about a move to Epson, but my major concern are their locked out, non-resetable/ non refillable carts and printheads that can't be replaced.
I don't need or want the 'latest and greatest' models as long as the bulk ink, carts/tanks and printheads are available.
These models with...
Can their 822 carts be reset? I did a number of searches, but noting conclusive other than I couldn't find anything that says yes. :(.
If not, can these be refilled by 3rd party chips/cartridges?
The specific printer is a XP446
