OMG!!! I don't know why I keep trying with this stuff. Once in a while, my printer won't reject the cartridges. But then the colors are just SO off.
What kind of printer do you have? I had an Epson and hated it. It printed with lines through everything and the color was so off. I finally sold it on eBay and bought a Canon and I have been printing with excellent quality ever since. Make sure to print something almost everyday so your ink does not dry or clog.
Depending on your printer and inks, you may have the wrong settings. Which printer?
