So, new one. Cheap one, actually - but hey, I don't want great prints. I don't even need color prints. I just want to be able to print out stuff.
The new printer is incredibly slow, but okay, I'm patient. Also, it just drinks ink, I assume. Because I have to replace the cartridges about every third or fourth time I try to print something... *grr* OK, luckily, I don't need the printer so often. And luckily, refills are cheap (maybe "real" cartridges would last longer, but probably not long enough to be the cheaper alternative).
Now, I just wanted to print out one page. Nope, no ink left. *grr* Okay, so blue and red were empty. From one second to the next - nothing like "you are low on ink", no, the printer just refused to print. I still had a red cartridge, but no blue one. Grr...
And now, can anyone please tell me why the printer desperately needs a fresh blue cartridge to print out one page? In black and white? When the whole printer is set to black and white anyway? Which leads to the next question: Why is the blue and the red cartridge empty? When I only print in black and white?
Grr... guess I should go back to my old matrix printer. That one actually worked.
Sometimes, at least.
