I bought two new ink cartridges as the ink was out. OK so I bought Sainsburys ones instead of branded printer ones, but I would have thought that Sainsburys ones, all brightly labelled as 100% compatible, would fucking WORK, and they don't. Is there something really obvious I am missing?
Some interesting comments here about that printer.
You are not getting an error message, so does that mean you have changed all the inks and they are all compatibles?
Has any protective tape that was on the cartridges been removed... I don't know these particular cartridges but many inkjet cartridges have tape on which needs removal prior to inserting. Check the packaging/instructions.
I think I have made it behave now, by the 3rd principle of Impact Engineering ie take cartridge out and shake it a bit before putting back. Of course now the bastard thing is demanding a different colour be refilled, so it can just wait till tomorrow grr grr. Thanks for your help anyway.
