Please help me save my inkjet printer. Some time ago I used the old trick of taping the ink cartridges to use the perfectly good ink left inside when the printer claims that they are "empty". It worked brilliantly and I got probably over 100 extra pages before the print quality started to diminish. Now I have replaced the cartridges, and the printer is spitting out completely blank pages. Why did this happen, and how can I fix it? [more inside]
I'm helping a buddy clean out his basement before renovating. We're finding a lot of miscellany including a large storage container of random cords and cables for electronic equipment. Also unearthed in the pile of boxes has been a scanner and inkjet printer from at least 10 years ago. What are the best options for dealing with this stuff? (More inside.) [more inside]
We're trying to optimize our home printing. We don't print an enormous amount, but we want to print in color and to be able to print in moderately high quality. You've already solved this problem and put some thought into minimizing cartridge expense: what printer do you use? how often do you replace the ink? do you refill the cartridges at a store or buy new ones from the OEM? (Bonus points if you've solved this problem for the HP 8600.) [more inside]

How can I clear a recalcitrant cartridge jam on an HP C4580 printer? I've gone through the steps on the printer and the further support on the HP website to no avail. I still have the error message flashing on the printer, and it will not print anything, not even the self-test report. I need a working printer, and this is driving me crazy! Any suggestions? Help?

My HP deskjet 8000's printer drivers won't allow me to print at all when 1 color of ink is out. Yes, even if I only want to print in black and white. Aside from going back and time and telling me not to buy this POS, can you help me? Are there hacked drivers? [more inside]

[MomFilter] Looking for a reasonably cheap, reliable printer (for printing text) for an iMac. Leaning towards laser as the experiences with inkjets have been that bouts of little use lead to still full, yet dry and thus worthless ink cartridges. [more inside]

I have a Dell Photo All-In-One Printer 924, and I can't get the "low ink" warning to go off. I did install a new black ink cartridge (not a DELL product), and it works fine, but the warning still won't go off. What can I do ?
Have you replaced your inkjet print cartridges with a generic by physically moving the cartridge chip? This site gives instructions, but I can't tell if this will screw up my printer's ability to detect low ink levels or not. Does this work?

Does anyone know of any (genuine?) alternatives to the Dell printer cartridges required for their A940 multifunction printer? I would like to be able to get cartridges at my convenience, without having to wait for them to be shipped directly from Dell. I've heard (here) that although the printer is just a rebranded Lexmark X5150 MFP, there is something about how they "key" the cartridges that makes the Lexmark ones unusable. Any ideas? Should I refill?
