Yes it is always recommended to use the brand name ink for your printer. I know it cost a little more but the quality is better. Not much you can do except take it out and throw it away and get a new cartridge. The longer the Generic stays in the worse you're problems will be, especially if the ink leaks into the rollers...

Tip

Printer Ink refill ....



Well, in general I recommend not using refills. They are probably OK for printers with ink nozzles that are NOT built into the cartridge (like Canon printers), but I would still be careful. The ink may not be the same quality as what you would get from the manufacturer.
If you are using an HP printer, the ink nozzle is built into the printer cartridge and is not meant to be run for refill after refill. When you replace your ink cartridge, you also replace your old nozzle with a brand new one. Helps keep the print quality good (especially important if you're trying to print out photographs).
Another point to consider is that when you bought your printer, you were probably looking at print quality. Why take a chance on compromising that print quality to save a few bucks?

Can changing transmission fluid and filter cause transmission failure on a honda civic lx 1995


DO NOT use generic ATF - HONDA BRAND ONLY. If our transmission has less than 50k miles on it, you might get away with it for a while, but their ******'s are very unique - made by Honda and designed to run on their fluid. I learned the hard way how generic fluid can destroy a ****** - trust me, it's not worth saving 10 dollars on fluid! My trans. was a little glitchy and I trusted the O'reilly guy on fluid - it stopped shifting at all withing a week. Go to the dealer or save a few bucks by ordering from Car Quest Auto Parts if you have one.

I have seen many nails that supposedly fit the senco sn4 nail gun. Some are 31 degree, some are 33 degree. All have paper collating. What angle nails should I search for to fit the senco sn4?


Senco uses 33 degree paper tape clip head, however many generic brands will label their box 30-34 degree to fit several nailers. This practice causes jams in some guns and others work fine. The goal is to save money but could cost more in the long run if gun is damaged. You can use generic (other than 33) if you take a strip of nails and place them against the outside of the rails aligned with either the line of driver path of angle of the rails. This will give you a visual as to the alignment. Best result is when the complete nail is in line with the path of driver. Next best result is when the head is in the path of driver and point of nail is slightly away from path, worst is when point hits path and head is back. Good luck

Memory card problem


Hi.
Maybe there's something wrong with the compatability of your MMC with your phone. Try to buy a new a new one but this time try to buy the genuine one. By the way. was your memory card a generic one? Sometimes, other generic MMC wont work with the phone we've been using these days especially Nokia and Sony Ericssons phone. Genuine is expensives but its worth it. Or rather try buying a Kingstone or Transcend brands.
Hope that will help you.

Convergence still bad after replacing IC's


What type, brand or model number is the TV set you have there? Your question has no information in it.. It could be many things with different types of sets. Have you checked for blow resistors around the IC's? Did you purchase good original IC's or inexpensive aftermarket types? Have you checked the plus and the minus power supply fuses or circuit protectors that feed the B+ to the IC's? Way to many things could still be bad without the right information given.
