I Get The Award Today For Biggest Dummy
August 10, 2017 10:42am CST
If they were giving out awards today I'd get the one for biggest dummy. My printer ran out of ink so I ordered two new cartridges last week (one color one black). They came yesterday and I took out the old cartridges and replaced them with the new ones. I needed to print something and although the printer seemed to work the paper came out completely blank. I tried it one more time and the same thing...a blank paper came out of the printer. Since I'm a dunce when it comes to figuring out why this would be happening I had to wait until my daughter came home from work to see if she could figure out what the problem was. She tried it the same as I did and the paper once again came out blank. The she asked the million dollar question..."mom did you take the protector strip off the cartridge before you put it in the printer?" Of course I did I said. She opened the printer and took out the cartridge and lo ahd behold the strip was still intact on both cartridges. I could have sworn I did but I guess I didn't. No wonder the printer was sending out blank pieces of paper. It was probably muttering to itself...dummy! how do you expect me to print without ink Now the printer is working fine and I feel like a dummy

Don't feel bad, the last time I needed to replace the ink cartridges in ours I ordered the wrong ones, opened them and got a rather rude surprise when they didn't fit. I have NO idea how I managed to order the wrong ones...

Don't feel bad as it could happen to anybody. A few weeks ago I was trying to print after not printing for a year, or so. I was printing, and it wasn't printing the right thing, and my sister looked at it, and my computer wasn't recognized by the printer! I thought the printer was a dummy, but it was really me as the dummy in this situation!!

Oh don't feel bad. I remember changing them and opened the box and sat the new one down and opened the printer and took out the old one and sat it down and then went and answered the phone, when I returned I picked up the cartridge and put it into the computer and threw the other one out into the garbage. The next time someone used the printer I was accused of not changing the ink, but I had, and threw out the new one and put the old one back in-imagine that!
