More about : color empty black Anonymous December 30, 2009 8:16:55 AM I assume we're talking bubblejet. Colour cartridges are generally smaller than the black because the black usually gets more use. However, if the situation continues after you've applied new cartridges, there's a problem. Printheads are not available generally though at a price (that probably exceeds that of a new printer) a repair tech could probably source and fit one. To be frank, due to running cost and unreliability I abandoned bubble jet as soon as monochrome laser printers dipped under the $100 point. And colour lasers are now approaching that region. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
