As in this one specifically;
What a write up. I specifically noted the comment about Precision Colors disco'ing their empty carts. :eek:
You are referring to these;
I asked the seller this;
How long have these been empty??
Don't the sponges dry out fast when empty...
The carts I have used were new, never filled, empty aftermarket carts, not ones that were filled with ink. Just like what you linked.
Unless I missed something here, I'm confused about buying empty used Canon OEM carts. I don't know how long the sponges were empty or almost empty.
Or ARC carts that do read ink levels which I now understand most do not. Which I found out the hard way thru Ink Owl in spite of what their tech told me..
The specific carts I'm looking for are refillable PGI-5(BK) and CLI-8(C,M,Y,BK).
I did find these...
As in you can't refill or reset Canon OEM carts. I never bought any.
As I stated, I never had "auto" reset carts before. If I knew that I probably wouldn't of ordered them and looked elsewhere. I've dealt with Ink Owl before with no issues, but only for ink.
BTW, I did on the offer.
Printer is new, the model is 15 years old. I have been treating it like gold. Understood about letting carts going dry, but that was due to the lack of indication to ink levels which wasn't my fault. I was just going to find another source for empty carts.
I thought Canon OEM carts are only...
Canon ip4300 printer (new purchased a few years ago, just placed in service to replace the same model with maxed out waste ink pads.
Ink Owl auto resetable carts (no need for a chip resetter) PGI-5 & CLI-8)
Carts are replacing older 3rd party (that needed a resetter) where the sponges...
I came across this list of printer carts and the models they use. It came from Inkjet411.com
My question is; is this in chronological order of the cart series? It appears it is, but couple may be out of order (Canon 6 for example).
Knock on wood, but refilling I have been fairly successful with it Both with my old i560 and now with the 4300. It's the printheads where the problem is. I have a 2nd set of carts all reset & refilled I just swap out with the carts inside the machine as needed tiring not to run the carts dry. ;)
That's the idea, what's wrong with the item, especially when a pattern develops, not what's right which the manufacture goes out of his way to advertise.
I never really considered the 4300 "premium". :idunno
