I didn’t either but there are tons of things you know that I don’t. It is my fervent hope that you will teach us the location and process.

actually I know what Jim is posting. I saw that info on the Internet quite a while ago. SUPPOSEDLY there is ink still in your ink cartridges AFTER the computer tells you they are empty. You can Google it to find out about the reset button.

I took a 3 color cartridge apart once and it had a sponge in each chamber. The amount of ink was far less than the size would lead you to think.

I didn’t either but it’s a brand related thing.

After paying a fortune for INK carts that never seem to last very long, costing even MORE, I said

I researched Laser printers… and found out ”It’s the ONLY way to Fly!”

I settled on a Brother HL-2270DW ( now replaced by HL-L2340DW )

It connects Wirelessly to a home WiFi network… just plug it into your Router (Digital Network Router, not WW’g ) and it installs it’self… Now go to your Notebooks, Tablets, etc. and Define the printer as the network printer… Now, everyone on the network can print their recipes, email, documents, etc. etc.

One more eyeopening thing… It can print on both sides of the paper… Just select Duplex (2 sided mode) and your document will use HALF as much paper.. it will print on both sides of the paper… will print page 1, back-up the paper into the printer, and print page 2 on the other side, etc. etc. Beautiful!

You say… but it ”needs Toner Cartridges” you say... I buy bottles of toner & when it comes time to NEED TONER (which is a VERY LONG time compared to INKjet), for less than $10 and I replace the toner & away we go…!

It prints at the rate of 27 ppm (pages per minute)!

I don’t care about any Reset Button for INKjet cartridges… (very big GRIN)

Jim, have fun with your ink cart’s… :)

Thanks, but I’ve used HP laser printers since they first came out back in the mid 1980s.

I didn’t think there was a real need to print anything anymore. We rarely replace ours yearly (3 kids to boot) and usually I just buy a new HP throw away printer as cheaper than replacement cartridge. My father in law uses his up all the time also and I just figured it was a retired guy thing with nothing better to do and prints everything he gets sent or he finds interesting instead of just saving it on his computer.

Some years back I had some cartridges refilled but the printer would not accept them, took them back and was told that they had forgotten to reset the whatever button. They were them accepted by the printer. Question: is the reset button only on refilled cartridges as I can’t find one on a off the shelf one. Good one Jim, this will keep some LJ’s busy for sometime.
