Question about Kodak 10 Ink Combo Pack

2 Answers

How long does ink last and why can't my printer work without one or the other?

I bought a combo pack from Staples on March 12. Today is April 22 and I am out of ink. I do not use my printer often and should get a better yield from this ink. I need to know why I don't?

So there are 2 distinct questions here.

1. Page yield should be estimated on the side of the box when you purchase the cartridge. Looking up your specific ink I can see that it is estimated to get about 420 pages with about 5% of the page used (think mostly black text with some color text all well.) You will VERY QUICKLY use up the ink if you are printing photos, full page graphics or cleaning your printheads more than once per cartridge.

2. It is quite common for printers to require both cartridges be installed to print. It is debatable why, but it could be that your specific printer model mixes color in with the black to reproduce EXACTLY what you are printing from the computer (unless you choose black only in the print dialog. The other possibility is that the printer manufacturers are super greedy and want to use up as much ink as possible for every print.

Definitely a problem. The printer may be putting ink into the waste ink pad. When that\'s full your printer will need a new WIP which is a pain to change. I recommend getting another printer. I have be using Epson printers for the last 17 years with little to no problems. BTW, I purchase Refurbished from the Epson website. See Clearance and wait for a bargain.

This is all HP recommends for the HP Deskjet 2460, so I wouldn't suggest buying anything else. First of all it might not fit and second, even if it fits, other issues may come with using those. If you can't see the list here it is:

My dell v313w printer gives the message that I need to replace cartridges even after I have put in new cartridges


Are you using Dell Series 21,22 ink cartridges?

Try Cleaning the Printhead on Dell AIO V313w, V515w, V715w, P513w, and P713W Printers

Troubleshooting Printhead Problems on the Dell AIO V313w, V515w, V715w, P513w, and P713W Printers

If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 21, 22 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 21, 22 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Dell Series 21, 22 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 21. 22 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to get a Dell Series 21, 22 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would take these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

I bought some ink cartridges yesterday for my printer and got 510&511 combo pack for a MX320 only to get home and notice mine has 40&41 combo in it and is a MX310. Can I still use the 510&511...


That printer uses the following ink cartridges

PG-30
CL-31
(low capacity)

PG-40
CL-41
(normal capacity)

PG-50
CL-51
(high capacity)

The ink you purchased will not work on the Canon PIXMA MX310 printer.

They're just a small 12" bike tyre and your local bike shop can help. It's either the valve or the tube you can put a bit of soapy water on the valve to check that. It'll bubble if it's leaking.

I HAVE AN EPSON DX4400 ALL IN ONE PRINTER. I HAVE BOUGHT SO MANY DIFFERENT INK cartridge YET IT WILL NOT RECOGNISE ANY.


In March of 2007 Epson started putting a different chip in some of their cartridges so that refill companies couldn't refill them. My printer is a CX8400 just purchased last Oct but manufactured Dec of 2007. The date they changed the cartridges was March of 2007. You must then buy cartridges Original OEM or find a company that has cartridges for before that date or after depending on when your printer was made. Look at the bottom of the printer for little clock dials and you can determine the date of manufacture. On mine the first number was the year and the second the month. Check ink companies online to see if this applies to your printer. Some ink companies don't mention this or just send you the wrong ones.The older cartridges will not work in the newer models.

Misrepresented product?


No manufacturing process is flawless. These things happen. Return to staples for an exchange. Most managers will exchange ink even after the 14 days. If they dont, then buy new ones and recycle the nonworking ones for $3 on your rewards statement. I have seen people come back the same day after they bought a brand new HP ink cartrige beucase it does not work. Its not that they had the wrong cartridge, its just that it was a bad one.
