Re: What about the carts?

Thanks for sharing - this is good info, as I have an R3000 running on OEM carts, but I will switch to 3rd party inks as soon as the OEMs run out.

I already have a set of InkRepublic IRK nano inks and two sets of refillable carts at hand. I understand that I would likely need to reprofile each time I pop in a refillable cart for a given color, and this is basically not a problem for me (at least with cheap media) but what I wanted to ask is whether the printer will accept single refillable carts mixed with OEM carts? I thought this was not possible, and you'd need to swap out the whole set once a single OEM color runs out?


Yes you can with conditions carts bug with every one. Only some of them. It's all about the controller chips.

Thanks, Joe. I guess I'll have to try it out and see if the chips on my refillables will allow for swapping each one separately.
