I called the Ink-All-You-Can service for ink conversion because I already knew a lot of printing job awaits as the school year begins. It’s a one time investment for 3.5k. If I would buy a new set of ink, for four colors, it would cost me around 1,400 ++ and this will only last for a few pages of printing.. Original ink has 10ml for each color each while ink conversion content is 100ml. It is x10 bigger like an unlimited printing.
The technician came to install my new conversion but my printer showed error. The light indicator for error sign kept flashing. The service technician seemed to have no knowledge and didn’t know what to do. After an hour of trying to figure out what was wrong, he said that he couldn’t find a solution. The error says, “there’s a foreign object inside the printer.” aside from empty ink status. He offered me another option, to have it repaired by another company, which costs P500 cheaper than the regular service fee. I declined and told him to just leave my printer and I will call their office later when I finally decided whether to buy a new printer or just ink conversion.
I googled the error code and found a solution for my printer.. I downloaded a certain software, scanned it and miraculously, it went back to normal working status, only with an empty ink.
My niece offered to have it printed in another shop.
What to do now? Go to mall and buy new printer? Or just buy a new set of ink to and try if it still works, but what if it fails again?
My printer is Epson ME 320, only a year old and barely used. Printer manufacturer seems to produce low quality and disposable printer these days. 🙁 I couldn’t use the black ink or other color til the other empty cartridge is replaced.
