repro woe

Ink cartridge, ink cartridge, why torture me so

I need to make copies but you’re running low

All those times when I just didn’t care

There was plenty of ink, everywhere

Now, when I need you to be there for me

You print so faint that I can barely see

I can’t run out and buy a one new right now

Please, can’t you just make me a miracle somehow

If you can get me out of this fix

Next order, I’ll get a package of six

  3. I’ve just put ALL NEW cartridges into my printer, this EARLY morning, and it only spits out BLANK copies – Grrrrr – so now I have a job for today – finding out what is wrong and how to cure it – Grrrrr

    A very appropriate poem from Annette.

  6. lol but believe me, ordering the bumper six-pack doesn’t work either.
    I’m currently printing anything I need without yellow, because the cartridge has only been in a couple of weeks yet the yellow has run out. Tough.

    • Oh dear me… I am sending good mojo to ALL our printers. Mine decided to get its act together and everything is fine but I can’t figure out how, after changing the black cartridge (the only one I touched) I ended up with magenta all over my fingers.
