So, my printer is out of ink. Totally out. Both black and tri-color. I'm planning to get new ink and as you may know printer cartridges tend to get very expensive, especially the tri-color ones. Since i bought this printer 5 years ago, i only changed the black cartridge twice and just re-filled whenever the ink is out, but the problem is, i never changed the tri-color ink because i didn't use it very much. So, you can guess it has been there for a long 5 years.

My question is, can i just buy refills for the tri-color cartridge even though it has been 5 years or should i just get a new cartridge because the old one has somehow expired?

Problem with printers is you have to use it every few weeks so the ink on the delivery area of the catridges doesn't dry up.

If you have an Epson printer (since you didnt say which) then you can use Inkrite catridges which are recycled Epson originals with Inkrite's own ink, cheap and reliable.

And no I wouldn't use refills on any old catridges.

I have an HP inkjet 3-in-1 but I never get them refilled, I just get the HP brand black and tri-colour ones from Costco.

HP ink is more expensive but usually the cartridges are so huge that they last forever.

It's also real easy to figure out which cartridge you need--the printer number will correspond to a one or two digit number on the cartridge box. Once you know what numbers you need, it's a snap to buy ink.

I've only ever had HP printers. I came into computing when they were the ONLY quality inkjet printer company--everyone else was still using ribbons.
