No, that was the best thing to happen to that lousy printer, I never liked it.Ouch!
The printer died because the cartridges were neglected and allowed to run dry for weeks, (Using I.S inks, the KMP was fine) it was my grandson’s and he couldn’t be trusted to drink a can of Coke without spilling it all over himself, the Maxify has now got the better of him...Not all pigment inks can be used in them. That is a significant thing to know first...
It's off-subject about the ARC cartridges, but I clearly cannot confirm that with Epson printers nor with Brother printers, if they fail it was my fault in most cases experimenting too much, doing off-regular things with the printers. I'm still running age-old printers like R800 or R265 , as well under Win 10, or an 15 year old Pro 7600 with several resets of all maintenance counters, it's more the opposite - those printers don't fail and my backup inventory does not drop......I'm aware of the public talk about planned obsolescence of particular hardware - by people who replace their smartphone every or so year by contract.......Let's face it, ALL printer manufacturers want their printers to fail after a few years
@FlyingingSaucer, it’s not Microsoft fault or problem, but they always get the blame, the printer manufactures themselves are the culprits, they don’t expect you to still have a working printer after 5 years, so why should they update their drivers...Do you mean make the drivers obsolete? Why should Microsoft do that if the hardware is still around?
