I’ve have read your posts with interest, but can’t make head or tails of some of your comments, leaving that aside for now, the main problem your having is with the type of compatible carts you have purchased.I had tried swapping each in turn before but found it still went into B500 on each.
Nope none of then have it... Looking online at the compatibles for sale it appears this light sensor pins has been discarded the base is just molded flat... This guy shows a similar cartridge in this video at around 6 mins 30 seconds in, its not quite the same but very similar and again no light sensor.On any of them.. ? Well make one from an empty cart, cut the piece and glue it in place on the yellow cart....
Refilling your OEM carts is the best option, empty the compatibles one by one and then swap the chip over all the time making sure you have the right ink and chip on the correct cart.. You can refill the OEM carts indefinitelyI don't want to cut up the original OEM set i have because i want to get a refilling kit and use those carts once i have it all running properly.
You can either get ink from the UK or Germany, but no matter where you get it from it’s going to be expensive, and each of these places have the necessary refill tips for your PGl-29 carts.Can you recommend a good ink supplier? Flipping stuff is so expensive.
Is the ebay stuff any good?
