Wrong purchase Returns Policy for open items:

We have a non-negotiable returns policy on opened items purchased in error. We do not refund these items as our suppliers will not exchange or refund open items. Should we decide to exchange such items, they will be subject to a handling fee of 15%. Ensure that you have the correct cartridges before opening the packaging.

Faulty items Returns Policy:

Manufacturers only exchange daulty cartridges if it can be proven to be faulty. In many cases the machine and not the cartridge is at fault.

Only once they have confirmed that the cartridge is in fact faulty, we can exchange.

Printer Error Message

Your printer is showing an error message, what now?

Printers might indicate an error message when a non OEM cartridge is inserted for the first time. Others may indicate an error at later stages. Most error messages can be resolved by resetting the printer. Take note that the error message is not always related to a cartridge issue. An error could be related to a different problem on the printer; eg.: a paper-jam or a different colour cartridge that is empty or faulty.

How to do a printer Head Clean

Individual ink-system printers normally do higher quality and amounts of printing and generally require more maintenance.

These printers come with a head cleaning function located on the printer menu, under maintenance or tools.

As with the tri-colour printers, the heads on these printers can be blocked due to lack of printing.

The cartridges do not directly influence the quality of the printing and therefore mostly these faults can be resolved with a head clean.

After each head clean the printer should print out a check/test pattern to indicate the current quality state of the printer-head. These patterns differ depending on the brand of the printer.
