This video is misleading. You can always buy a new printer head for the model you have. They are available on ebay for 20-30 bucks. I have Epson l355 which is inkjet and I never had a problem with it. I refill with the cartridges with ink. That simple. It just seems the author has had some bad experience with this particular model. That does not generalize the situation to all inkjet printers.

I understand how you feel. I can relate. What about refillable ink cartridges? I've seen a site that offers them for the price of what you'd pay for a set of regular cartridges, but they hold about 4 times as much and you can keep refilling them without the printer detecting it. 123 inkjet was the site I saw. Do you know if refillable ink cartridges is a legit prospect or is it just another scam?

In 2020 I'm still using the Kodak Verite' I bought in 2015. There is usually only one or two cartridges available at big box stores. I hope I can order them soon. It's in my opinion the best printer ever made. Ink lasts forever. It was cheaper than all other brands. And cartridges were cross model. I think they stopped making them. Graphic designer here I've been through 30 or so printers in my career. Nothing comes close to the Verite'.

Wanna know a secret for cheap printing? 1) Buy quality colour laser printer. 2) Disable printer's ability to auto update it's firmware (or you will be really sorry in due course when it spots item 3 - guess how I know this...). 3) Put generic cheaper cartriges in printer and keep original cartriges in a box ready to swap in if the printer ever fails under warrenty (as the manufacturer will otherwise blame the non-original cartriges).

I'll tell you what else is a scam............. When your M254dw HP laser printer auto updates its firmware and suddenly refuses to print anymore with non-HP cartriges installed. No firmware downgrades from HP and no way to skip the 'non original cartridges detected' warning you get which effectivly locks the printer. After 3 days searching I found a YouTube video with a link to a .exe file that could downgrade the firmware after you had made various printer menu changes but it still required you to load genuine HP cartriges first just to get past the 'warning'. Now the printer 'advises' me that the cartriges are non-genuine but at least it is working again.......................

HP also uses a protected market strategy to sell inks for different prices in different parts of the world, this means that re-sellers & unlicensed distributors of genuine ink products simply import from other countries often at considerable profit AND damage to the environment from unnecessary transportation and storage . Whilst HP typically claims great concern over the environment the reality is it doesn't give a toss.

Wow very good video, and thank you for speaking up, i found out about the cartridge chip years ago and I also found out that you can software hack your printer so that it ignores the absence of the chip and sets the infernal page counter to 1 permanently. Then you only need to refill the cartridge by yourself (you can buy printer ink in 5 gallon bottles for a fraction of the price). I've been using that printer constantly for like 5 years with zero issues

People still use printers? 😂😂😂 Everything i generally need is a screen shot or downloadable ( then i type in into and email it back ). When i used to use printers i simply bought a new one EVERY TIME. As you mentioned ink and printer cost about the same so id get a 3/4 filled ink cartage plus printer paper included with new printer and the math at the time provided the most cost effective. 🖨️

I think I went through every step that you mentioned this the last couple weeks trying to get a driver that worked but couldn't and was so mad at Canon's customer service, after they tell you to email them they email you back and say this is an unmanned email address go to our online customer support which didn't work so at that time I got so mad, I tweeted it. Now I actually got a good phone number and somebody who answered so after I spent a half hour on the phone with Canon with an American who was very knowledgeable and nice and spent $25 for a black ink cartridge and I already had the ink replacement kit, $7 but the drill never came so I was out $7, I spent another $7 on a small drill, chi ching but I was in a real hurry so I gave up on that, but now I'm not in a hurry anymore so I'm going to put more ink in the the old one bcuz it did work a little, and now I don't need the new one but I I really can't return it because I couldn't get into the box so I had to rip it open with a knife because that's another thing, they don't want it opened any nice way and they don't want you to return it so after I got all of that done, my wireless didn't work. Nope. So I'm going to try again and hopefully, I'll be able to print all the papers that that are waiting. I did find a site where I can get the color for $20 , I don't know how much shipping is but I am not messing with refilling three colors, not interested. And what you did at the end with your hammer, one time my son was in a real hurry and the computer just stopped which it did quite often no matter what you did and how much customer support and he smashed it with his fist.

Currently, I am using an HP printer. [ purchased 1 1/2 years ago ] What I find frustrating is the amount of ink in the cartridge. After only a FEW letters, the " Cartridge " is out or low on ink, giving me that line across the page. I take my cartridges to a place that will refill them for about a third of the cost to buy a new cartridge. The downside to this is that I was told that the cartridge can only be refilled so many times [ amount unknown ] !! Even with that in mind, I am still saving money. So my advice to people = Find a business that will refill your cartridge for a fraction of the price of a new one. After the fourth refill, the cartridge is basically free. Just pay for the ink. If a person can buy the ink & refill the cartridges themselves, Bonus !!

Brother color laser printers accept third party ink. I had a color Lexmark laser printer and it initially accepted third party ink. When I updated the firmware it no longer accepted third-party ink. Lexmark wanted me to pay over $100 for each new cartridges. There were four. . I wasn’t going to pay so I took a hammer to the printer because I didn’t want to sell it to anybody else for them to have the same problem. Now Lexmark you lost a customer for life. Although not a lot, I keep three different printers going and will never buy a Lexmark product again and I tell people to stay away from Lexmark.

I shall add that tank type printers, marketed as a workaround for high-priced ink cartridges, are just as big a scam. Look up "ink absorber pad" and "ink counter." If you call customer [dis]service, you are told the Canon 5B00 error message signifies "end of life" for your entire printer. Fortunately, a few people have posted helpful Internet instructions for cleaning or replacing (lots of luck finding a source of new ones outside of India and Kuala Lumpur -- these are not officially sold in North America and Europe) pads and resetting the ink counter.

this is my story i inform everyone with this kind of problems, that canon is being abosive trying to sell his printer ink with the following method ..., because i already had two high resolution printers of the same brand a mark ii that gave head problem because I used cheap ink cartridges when I wanted to use them just for copying so I stupidly bought a pro 10-sa to think that I would never have any problems but I was wrong, I need these companies for photography exhibitions of which I use the originals but how the ink is it is very expensive for more basic things I change the ink cartridges, only that both had false problems in the print head. whenever I used non-figdinios ink cartridges from the beginning it diminished the quality of purpose after it gave the print head a problem with some use or injected a few more colors, so I decided to do some tests I changed for all the figdine ink cartridges and she magically stopped giving problems, then not happy i decided on 2 or 3 white ink cartridges and it worked well on the table. again I added more altered cartridges and it was a problem after a few prints. So I decided to understand what was going on and trick the system to see if it was really ink or canon to sell your ink cartridges created a purposeful problem. and voila I drained all the original ink from the fiddinios ink cartridges and injected the ink of another brand for testing, so I printed many things and it was no problem, that is, the problem is not the ink but the canon, they do something to give problems on purpose. ... it was my conclusion I spent a lot of stress with this problem I think I am not obliged to always have to use the brand's ink ....
