Happy Sunday evening to you all :)
I wonder if I could trouble you for some printer advice?
I have a Kodak ESP C110 AiO (All in One). I changed the colour ink yesterday and printed off A4 pages of a Pink Damask paper - about 25! - I know that's a lot but I've printed nothing else. I went to use the printer this afternoon and it wont.................it's telling me the colour ink needs changing - again! Aaarrrhhhhh - the blue and yellow ink hasn't even been touched :(
Anyway, after doing the usual 'take it out, shake it, put it back' a couple of times I Googled it to see if I could somehow 'over-ride' this as I only wanted to print in Blk & White - I know I used to be able to with another printer I had when it used to tell me my compatible inks weren't in! All I found was lots of reviews saying that the ink lasts nowhere near as long as expected in a Kodak and so many people with repeated problems ref ink, all saying that although the ink claims to be the cheapest, in the long run it's not as you have to replace it so often!
Those little boys playing football in their garden that they've covered in printed pics of the crowd in a football stadium, failed to point out the HGV full of cartridges parked out the front of their house!
So, I'm on the look-out for yet another printer!
Please let me know what you have and if you're happy with it - or what you have that you are not happy with (so I can avoid that one too!)
I want it to take card, without me having to sit there and persuade it through - I was sooooo happy when my Kodak came and would do this - nothing worse than printing off 100 Wedding Invites and you have to sit there and 'encourage' each piece of card through!
Ideally I would like it to take compatible inks - Kodak don't as they are the cheapest and compatible ink companies don't find it beneficial - They should re-think that one!
An integrated scanner would be good - but not necessary as I do have a stand-alone one (somewhere in my cupboard of past printers!!!!)
I have to buy more ink for my Kodak tomorrow as I have orders to finish, but I'd really like a printer that I could be 100% happy with - is there such a thing?
