I recently got refills from same place I have been getting but boxes were from a different dstributer this time and I replaced the yellow and I can not get a nozzle check to print yellow and a printer alignment does not print right. The yellow seems to be mixed on the ink pad refill with black ink and sometimes it prints black lettering only half letter especially on alignment and nozzle checks printed. Can you tell me if you think my printer need service head problem maybe or if inks wrong. The box does not say compatible with i960 it says compatible with i960D is that my same printer? have a canon 960 The refill company swear it is compatible but I am having trouble ever since replacing ink with this ink

Re: having trouble with ink refills
Many aftermarket companies have inferior parts in their ink cartridges. Stay with the genuine cartridge for yours. To save money refill your own. They can be refilled at a low cost and the cartrige will reload about 7 to 9 times before it no longer any good to use any more

you can refill cartridges your self ( very messy) or you can have them refilled professionally at a cartridge shop
go online as there are places like e-bay that sell cartridges or other specialist cartridge retailers that sell units
printers such as hp always say use only this brand of cartridge but if you find a good online ink retailer you will see that all cartridges are either made as specific or generic and only the name on the case is different
where you got the printer will have cartridges for it
Using refilled in cartridges and incompatible inks result in the following problems.
Refilled ink cartridges might leak and cause product damage. One method for refilling ink cartridges is to drill a hole through the cartridge, refill the ink, and then plug it. In some cases this plug does not hold, and the ink runs into the product and damages the printed circuit boards.
Refilled ink cartridges frequently exhibit spotty printing or fail to print. This problem might be a direct result of the nozzles being plugged with dried ink. Because the vents of the refilled cartridges have been opened, air is able to enter the cartridge and dry the ink.
Refilled ink cartridges might exhibit lower print quality, for the following reasons.
Printing algorithms used to create the various colors are based on particular printer inks. Using incompatible inks might result in color matching problems.
Refilled cartridges might have damaged nozzle orifices, result in various problems with print quality.
company products to which the printer belongs to can use a time delay between pages to accommodate the properties of the specific media type and ink being used. This prevents smearing problems from one page to the next. Using incompatible ink will alter the effects of this time delay and might result in poor print quality.
printer might not recognize refilled ink cartridges. The refilling process may involve altering the ink cartridge enough that the product is unable to recognize it. The condition of the print cartridge electrical contacts deteriorates with use. This also results in the product being unable to recognize the refilled cartridge.
Refilled ink cartridges might get stuck in the product. Because the cartridges from other manufacturers have been altered, cartridges might become stuck in the product. This problem might require that the product be disassembled to remove the cartridge.
printer at times cannot predict the long-term effects on product reliability from using different ink formulations.

have a nice day.
There should be a dialogue box that pops up on your computer when the cartridge is low telling you to order new ones. Usually there is a box you can check to tell it to ignore that the cartridge is low. If you don't get the dialogue box, somewhere in your printing preferences you should be able to tell it to "ignore ink levels." There does not exist a cartridge that "does not contain this circuitry." There are no compatibles of these cartridges and all refills are of original manufacturer cartridges.
You cannot reset the ink level indicator for the HP 60 ink cartridge. It shouldn't matter anyway because the level is only estimated for "management purposes only" (see user manual) meaning to let you know when it's near time to order a new cartidge. I have tried cycling through 3 different cartridges to reset the ink level for the one I refilled but it didn't work. Refill and just ignore the ink level indicator. Also, it's a good idea to clean the print heads with the solvent in the refill kit before refilling to remove old ink and imrpove print quality.
Courtesy of misterinkjet, here is the link to the website that actually sells ink refill kits and you can use ink refills on your Brother All in one. It can be used for each seperate color and also Black. Hope this helps.
By using Colorbyte's Imageprint software and their 'Phatte Black' cartridge....
I have not purchased it myself quite yet but im good friends with an Epson R&D guy who tested their system and highly recommends it.
