I can only print 15-or so photos then it runs out of ink. That seems ridiculous, has to last longer than that. Is this normal ? If not, what can I do about it ?


You don't specify what printer you have but a quick google search brought up this review and great tips for an HP printer on Amazon:

Many reviews point for 40 prints and less..yes I confess that I was printing 40 or less if I use premium plus papers but not any more.

I bought 16 cartridge since I bought my HP A618 but the last cartridge printed 140 and still I can print photos (I got the warning of low ink in 100)

what I did is changed the setting in the HP Photosmart Essential 3.0 the software to use it to print your photos. these are the changes:

1- After you click at the Simple Print, make sure you choose the correct size not bigger or Full Page. (for me usually 15x10)

2- choose Printer Settings at the top right then confirm your paper size (if you use paper with tab, select it)

3- click at the Advanced printer Settings. then select your paper type (advanced or premium photo papers). select print quality, Best. I use the (best) printer quality because I didn't notice any difference while using Maximum dpi and I think Maximum dpi only good when you print 5x7 but trust me, don't ever use it. stick to (best). it consumes less ink than maximum and the output is amazing.

4- Click at the (Features Tab) at the top left. then at the bottom there is a very bad technology which is (photo fix), always put it OFF. this feature makes your ink finish earlier. Don't use it ever.

before I use the new settings, I decided to buy Canon PIXMA mini320 but it was out of stock so I bought 2 cartridges to print 70 photos. but the first cartridge still usable.

soon I'll use the second cartridge and I'll try to update my review.

for now, use the settings above and I hope you get more printed photos of a single cartridge.

Update 13-6-2008:

now I have used another 2 inks of this..one has printed 48 photos and the second printed 81 photos and still in use.

I got a tip from hp life chat support. they told me to buy the longest expiry date ink which means the ink expire date will last 1 year or 2. I bought an ink that will expire at aug-2009 which I'm still using it until now and another june-2008 which only printed 48.

Paper for 110 ink:
don't ever use premium or premium plus HP papers. they will not dry as long as you live or even water-proof papers. they will consume more ink too. you have 2 other options. Canon paper plus glossy or high-glossy and HP advanced glossy. both are incredible. I got stunning photos when I used them and longer life ink.

Photo quality settings:
if you edit your photos in the PC, don't forget to set the resolution of the photo at 600dpi or 300dpi. to know more about the resolution search the net for (PPI & DPI). once you understand them you will know that you didn't ever get a perfect photo. now when I compare the best photo before this method and after, I realized that I was a ****** who wasted money on papers like premium and lost quality of 400 photos I printed by not setting the resolution of the photo which is the same as the printer.

If you still interested in buying this ink, follow these steps above specially the expiry date of the ink and using HP advanced or canon plus paper. and before you buy new printer like Canon, try doing my way and buy oe last ink before spending money on new printer.

one last thing. don't print photos from sd card. use a software like adobe lightroom to set the exposure, light, the black level, remove noisea and colors.

Try these tips and see if you can't get extra life from your ink cartridges.

Cheers!
Mike

Hi, i'am from kuala lumpur malaysia, i'am looking for printer for edible image. where can i buy the printer and the sugar ink. tq


I live in the southern part of New Jersey, USA. We have some beautiful cakes produced in our area in the larger grocery stores using this kind of process.

I dont know what to tell you to do in your country, which I have visited, by the way, but if I wanted such a printer, I think I would go speak with the baker at the store where theymight have **** a decorated cake.

On the ohter hand, maybe you are the baker and you are looking for such a thing. Try this ...

Have your tried to Google "cake decorating" or anythng similar to that?

Good Luck to you my friend - and thanks for asking your question here on FixYa.com

Mp530 edible ink


You need to clean the print head manually. Remove tanks from print head, then remove print head. Find a small tray you can put hot water in to the depth of a quarter inch / 6 mm. Soak bottom of print head. Do not touch or get wet the electrical contacts. Next while holding print head in left hand carefully pour a small amount of hot water in the each ink tank well in the print head. Now dab the bottom of the print head where the jets are with a paper towel. Keep dabbing till you get equal size spots of all the colours. Best to wear plastic gloves doing this. Best to use battery water (de-ionized) but if you don't get scale in your electric jug your tap water is fine.

Canon printer now says edible ink cartridge is not compatible!


Most Cannon Printers will warn you of this specially if your using re manufactured ink and it shows up in the print queue.Just ignore this message and print normally! Bypassing this warning will not damage printer!!

Won't print black


I found a solution to the Black printing problem :)
Under Printing Preferences: Set your Media Type to Photo Paper Pro.
We used edible ink cartridges and printed onto icing sugar paper. Same old... Just one day it refused to print black. In order to continue our small business, I degraded the color until I printed gray and not black.

Tonight, I browsed for the problem and came across this :)

Hope it helps you too
