One more question. I read somewhere in this thread that it is best to replace all the cartridges when one is empty. Is this good advice or would I be wasting ink and money.


I HIGHLY recommend that you do that.
You will not use any more ink than replacing one cart at a time. Well only as far as in printing.

Once you get your printer established you will reach a point where carts are constantly reaching a point where they have to be replaced. Quite often you replace an empty or low cart only to have another declared low or empty right after the purge cycle takes place. It is a true Domino Effect.

If you continue this cycle your waste pads will reach saturation point prematurely.

So follow this advice which is what I do an ALL 15 of my printers.

I always have a filled and reset full set of carts for ALL my printers waiting in the aisles so whenever one cart is low or empty I replace the whole set.

Doing this will eliminate The Domino Effect. You will reduce purges almost by a factor of the number of carts in the set. Your pads will live longer and you will save a huge amount of ink that would normally would be purged away after each cart change.

The amount of ink is the same whether you change one carts or all 6-8-9-10 or 12 carts.

Trust me on this.
