Question about Canon I990 InkJet Photo Printer
I got a CX9400Fax as a replacement to a CX6600 that "reached the end of its useful life". It was only 1 1/2 old and the authorized repair place wanted $100.00 to change the waste ink pads. The CX 9400 takes 4 of the epson #69 cartridge. I bought some of the generic ones and the printer will not accept them. Is there any way to override this monopolistic system so I can use the less expensive ink cartridge? If epson's price were a little more reasonable I would use them but they are so overpriced.
Hi i dont think the problem will be with the replacement pads as they wouldnt make them if they did not work your unit shouldnt be able to tell their not originals anyway.
The only reason people tend to buy originals is for the simple fact that you might get a poorer quality of print from the cheaper ones.
Up till now i have had no problem using the cheaper ones i havnt got exactly same unit as you but it sounds like they are not fitting in the unit properly.
Do you still have the ones you took out because if you do you could try putting them in again just to see if the unit exepts them ones or not this way you would eliminate problems with the unit itself.
Check that they are deffinately the same and make sure they are fitted properly if you are sure the unit is working then the problem is with the pads.
Make sure the ones you brought are exactly the same as the old ones the problem shouldnt be the brand as this is what they make the cheaper ones for whilst im waiting for your reply i will look for a manuall for your unit and tell you what i find out ok.
Let me know how you get on and i will try and assist you further ok........
