Question about Epson Stylus Photo 820 InkJet Printer
My printer is set to use black ink only, but uses same amont of color ink as the black ink, is this right. thanks Everett
I've noticed the same thing on my Epson Stylus Photo 820 ink status monitor. If it's set to use only black ink, then logically it shouldn't actually be using any color ink other than when it does a cleaning cycle. Truth is... the built in monitor counts at the same rate for color and black regardless of the true levels. So, unfortunate consumers are likely to restock prematurely on expensive cartridges if they aren't aware that monitor is counting prints, and not actually measuring ink.
I've bought refill kits made by JetTec at Staples and they make a Re-Setting Device for cartridges. Lately my local Staples have stopped carrying this brand but I'm know they're available online. The re-setter is a little plastic device with and LED light that changes color after you match up it's little metal prongs with the microchip on your cartridge to indicate that it has been re-set. Just follow the directions that come with the re-set device. This is also a good way to get the last remaining bits of ink out of cartridges when they're low. The Epson print counter stops you from printing once it "thinks" it's out of ink but the reset device convinces it otherwise untill you really do run out.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.
