HP psc 1350

Has anyone heard that Kodak printers use less ink? I'm in the market for a new all in one, and I'm finished with Lexmark. New ink almost monthly, and I don't really use it that often.

I'm going to use Ink Drop next time too. I've heard they are really good.

Use Refill Plus in downtown Christiansted (same alley as Dashi, across from Zebo's). Not only are they great people but also members of the Recycling Association.

Depending on where you live, Turtles Deli has a drop box. Someone will take your cartridge to C'sted and gets it filled, returns it back to Turtles.

Did you know that HP and other manufacturers of printers program an expiration date into a chip on the print cartridges so that you can't keep refilling them? I sure didn't.

I topped off my cartridges last week. When I tried to print last night, I kept getting an error message over and over again that I needed to remove and inspect the color cartridge. After a while with no results, I went online to look for help and there it was. Once the cartridge hits the expiration date, you can't print anything even when the cartridges are full. There even is/was a class action suit against HP for this practice. Just a heads up.

I have a HP & re-ink my own from a Ebay kit(really cheap).
I had the same problem(in that the printer knows you used that ink cartridge before & doesn`t accept it re-filled).
From what I read(@ do) is put scotch tape over the LH row of contacts(facing the contacts), insert the cartridge(another error message).
Remove again & remove tape, re-insert & good to go!<<It thinks it`s a different one...
The printer tool even shows it as a full cartridge.
You can fill to a larger capacity as well.
I have a new Lexmark , still in the box & never used it BC I herd of the exorbitant ink prices & problems hacking re-used ones.
They "give away" the printers, you you can get racked in on the refills.

We go through a ream of paper in 2 months, & all I can suggest is when purchasing a printer, look at the size (in ML) the cartridge holds, & if the cartridge can be re-filled/used over & over).
If your looking to save,
Forget about the resolution(now a days, their all good) & instead focus on how much it will cost to operate
