Q.  How do I buy ink cartridges and toner cartridges online?

Q. What are genuine, compatible and remanufactured cartridges?

A.  OEM or Genuine catridges are those produced by your printer manufacturer (e.g. HP, Canon, Epson etc...).  Compatible cartridges are models produced by compaines other than the printer manufacturer.  Remanufactured cartridges have been refilled with ink / toner.

A.  This is rare but can happen occasionally on some models.  To fix, follow this procedure.

  1. With the power on the printer, remove the cartridges.
  2. Turn off power at the wall and wait 3-5 minutes
  3. Turn power back on and reinsert the cartridges

Q.  My ink cartridge or toner cartridge is not working properly - it prints nothing / streaks / blotches etc. How can I fix this? Is the cartridge faulty?

A.  It is posible, although unlikely that a faulty ink cartridge or toner cartridge is causing your problems.  Before requesting a return, try the following:

  1. Make sure you removed the plastic strip(s) from the cartridge when you installed it.  These are for shipping purposes only, and the cartridge will not function with them installed.
  2. Run a Clean or Deep Clean on the printer head.  Consult your printer manual for detailed instructions.
  3. Run a Nozzle check on the printer.  Again, consult your manual for detailed instructions.
  4. If the problems remain after changing the cartridge and performing the above steps, you may have a defective printer.
