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

New black ink not drying on photos. Ink runs


Most likely you're using the wrong photo paper. Ink-jet photo paper is specially designed to absorb the ink, while copier paper isn't.

Photo Paper keeps jamming


It's the top rollers, the paper is too slick to get through them. I'm using HP photo paper, in an HP printer. It needs to do a 180, but gets jammed right where it prints, so the paper never makes it to the ink. It's an engineering problem by HP. I suggest putting a rough surface on the top edge of the photo paper, something removable but rough enough for the printer to pull the photo paper through.

Ink smudging off paper


It means that the fuser is not hot enough to bond the toner to the paper. You should open the rear door and see if a paper has wrapped around the fuser roller, as when the temp is actually too cool it will shut down the printer. Photo paper is also too thick to be used in this printer and you should only be using standard bond paper.

Epson r350 printer does not print thick paper or inkjet paper


Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
Hope this is of help.

Paper jam canon mx850. I cant find the paper.


The error indicates a black ink stick was jammed. You have to clear the ISC (ink stick count) error. Turn off the printer. Turn on the printer. As soon as you see XEROX start moving across the display hold down the back and help buttons until you see "beginning service mode" on the display. Release the buttons, it will now come up in the service mode. Scroll down to the function menu, hit ok, scoll to clear isc faault, hit ok. Hit the back button to get back to the first menu then exit diagnostics, hit ok when it asks if you want to restart in customer mode.
If you ever buy any Xerox ink and you get a cracked ink stick call Xerox cb_transparent_l.gifus.gifspace.gifspace.gifarrow.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gif800-835-6100cb_transparent_r.gif and they will replace it free of charge. Otherwise you risk this problem.
Hope this helps.

What is the best photo paper to use with a Canon i960 to achieve the same colors on the paper that I see on the screen?


This is a bit of a subjective question. What you think is best might not be agreed upon by others. Given that, you'll get the best results and the longest lasting photos using manufacturers ink cartridges (not refills) and premium photo paper. I tend to stick with the better known companies in this case- Kodak,etc. Others may disagree with me and say refills are just fine. The quality standards aren't as stringent for refill ink batches as new ink cartridges and stand a better chance of clogging the nozzles or having colors that aren't the same with each batch.

Dull pictures ,new ink ,deep cleaning done ,ink heads cleaned


Are you using photo paper to print your photos? If you print photos using regular paper, the ink will spread out in the paper fibers of non photo paper and make the photos appear dull. I would try using paper made to print photos and see if that helps

RX580 printer just stopped drying the photos we were printing?


Hi Kory
Inkjet printers are very fussy about the type of paper they use. The safest bet is to stick with paper made by the same company as the printer. Photo paper contains a texture that absorbs the ink and if the ink isn't soluble to that texture it won't dry right.

Another possibility is are you using re-manufactured or refilled ink cartridges? Although cheaper, this solution for expensive ink cartridges is not always good for the printer. You could have a bad cartridge in there.

Let me know about these things and we will go from there. Thanks!
