DIY Printer Fixing Guide
There are 1000 3rd party solvent inks on the market and I was just wondering if it's the same for the latex world. Anyone using a 3rd party latex ink? If so which brands are available?
The Latex Ink is heavily guarded and its hard to copy unlike the Solvent that has been around forever.Interesting. Looks like it's not as prevalent in the latex world. I always recommend OEM inks but I would say at least half of all solvent printers I work on are using 3rd party inks probably even more than that.
I've been running Sams Ink for a couple of week now...no problems, perfect colour match, didn't need to flush just swapped the empty cartridge out.
Did you have any any luck with Bordeaux?I installed Bordeaux 831 inks in my HP Latex 360 and the typical error message came up about using non-OEM supplies, but when I went to push "OK" to move on to print, the error message wouldn't clear. The "OK" button wouldn't work. I had to click cancel to clear message and another error message appeared showing ink cartridges were missing.
I then powered the printer off and rebooted it and after running through the set up the same error message and process occurred again. I rebooted for a second time and again no luck with all the same errors showing up.
I then threw the OEMs back in and the printer identified the cartridges and began to print. The chips on these cartridges are supposed to work with all the new firmware updates.
Is anyone else having problems with using Bordeaux or other aftermarket inks in their HP latex machines? Or does anyone have instruction on how to bypass the error messages to print?
