ok guys i have HP843c printer andits been perfect till this week ive had it for about 18mnths now. i bought a ink refill kit for black and color which i have done many times before i then filledit up correctly left it for one day as it suggests.

then i run a test page np's the color was light but fine its to be expected first time.I run about 10 more tests no improvment i then print a couple of photoshop things ive been doing whcih are both darkish blue, they came out in a black mixed with pink and now everything i pint is distored with the solours in the same way. The only thing that is ok is whn i print a plain text microsoftword document.

If your printer has utilities to clean the print heads, run those.



Otherwise, just try buying new ink cartridges. They're not that expensive.

No.
If you buy a cheap printer and want to replace the ink cartridges later on, they will be more expensive than if you bought a more expensive printer.
That's how they offer the printers so cheap.
Charge less for the printer, charge more for the cartridges.
