Hi kabaka, o.k i can always replace the catridge. But i would like to know why does the printer prints in pink? And i was doing some research and i found that if you soak the cartridge in hot water and let it dry and then install it in to the printer it prints in full colour. will post if the hot water thing works. Re9ARd5 Kavi-krish!

Hi kabaka, i tried the hot water thing it works. This is how you do it.

1) Switch off the printer.

2) Take out the catridge.

3) Open the hot water faucet and hold the catridge under running hot water (for about 5 mins).

4) Dry the catridge. (Make sure its properly dry)

5) Install the catridge in to the printer and print a test page.

Any other ideas, suggestions and comments are most welcome!

dont re-fill

i used to refill all the time
i took my carts in this ink place and had them filled when i installed them and printed off my resume the page came out with a huge black spot on it, i was like wtf i opend the printer and the ink leaked out all over the inside of the printer. i cleaned it up best i could and every thing was fine. the next week my printer started to error all the time. i took it back to staples and they found ink all over the inside were the circut boards were and voided my warrenty on the spot.
