until this happened.
My last HP printer failed right after warranty and like this time, I had just spent over $80 on ink cartridges. After the recent wasted printing that ended up striped, I assumed the black ink cartridge was defective and purchased another today. There is no black at all. This model doesn't allow access to the printheads for cleaning and after following all instructions for remedy, nothing worked. With nothing to lose and torque screwdriver in hand, we went at it. The printheads were a mess so we soaked as recommended on DIY sites, twice, put back together, twice, failed to print the black. It's necessary unless you're printing pastels. So now what? Do I buy another HP that uses the same cartridge so I'm not wasting $80 again or look elsewhere and pay double with new ink? Either way, I have two sources, Walmart and Staples, both limited on inventory, and may have to order whichever one I choose. Can't use a color copier (which isn't as sharp) for the labels because they are printed on heavy cardstock. In order for Staples to print them, they need to be in a .doc file and I have no idea how the clarity and color would come out. I need to think and eat chocolate.
I will post the few boxes I have this week, and also post the date and time of the sale beforehand. Krissy, please email me using the link at the top right. If anyone has questions please send directly to me since the majority of requests are from no-reply readers and I cannot answer you. If you receive posts by email, you probably don't have that link so.... email address
