Printer needs repair now
I bought a set of inks, chip res-setter and other paraphernalia from Inkbank 2 years ago because the Canon cartridges were too expensive and the inks evaporate quickly. Service was good, the items arrived promptly and phone was answered.
I thought refilling the empty cartridges myself would solve the problem with excessive expenses but my expectation was not fulfilled. I followed the instructions as described by the supplier. It turned out to be a very messy business . I bought my own gloves - the ones supplied are not very good. Even so, ...I still got ink on my hands and everywhere else. The little plugs supplied did not actually fit my Canon cartridges properly - it was a poor fit and ink leaked everywhere. Covering the hole with tape did not work at all. So I had to discard these cartridges because the original cover was now missing and the plugs supplied by Inkbank did not fit. (yes, I gave all the correct codes etc). If I had not removed the original cover (as instructed) I could have had these same cartridges refilled locally, albeit not exactly cheap either. So then I tried refilling other used cartridges by slowly dripping the ink into the nozzle at the bottom of the cartridge - a long process. Need patience for this as it takes forever. Then I turned the cartridge upside down to allow the ink to settle and stop it from leaking back out. Kind of worked - printed a few pages ok on several occasions. Then suddenly the printer started making horrible whirring noises when I turned it on. Orange and blue lights flashing. Message said: Error 5000. have not been able to solve the problem. As I paid $102 for the inks and other items I phoned Inkbank and asked to have my money refunded. The man from Inkbank was not too pleased about it but reluctantly agreed. However, as I had a lot on at this time I never returned the inks and basically haven't been able to use the printer since then. All the other reviews sound so positive. Am I the only one who experienced problems ?
Questions & Answers
Has anyone used the T220 ARC cartridges in a work force WF 2750 and if so, how did it work?
WF 2750 ARC cartridges are not listed on the Ink bank website as they are most likely a recent printer series. My 2660 was the same when I sought cartridges but now have been added to the listings. The T220 cartridges work well without problems.
Make sure you are NOT still auto updating your printer as their drivers can be be updated to prevent use of aftermarket cartridges.
Best to directly contact the owner of Inkbank whom you find extremely helpful. Contact link is hard to find it can be found in the specific cartridge listings .
