11. Faulty Goods
11.1. If you are experiencing problems with your ink cartridges purchased through this Website it may be possible to resolve your problem by taking the following actions:
INK LEVEL SHOWING AS LOW OR EMPTY: When you install your cartridge you should be presented with an option similar to ‘Do you want to install a new cartridge?’, You should always select ‘yes’ as this resets the ink level that is read from the cartridge ‘chip’. If you haven’t done this on initial installation, remove the cartridge and then re-install using the correct method.
CARTRIDGE NOT PRINTING / PRINTING FAINTLY: If the cartridges are not printing at all, firstly ensure you have removed the protective tape from the cartridge itself. We suggest you use the clean printheads function included with your printers’ software; this can often remove any ‘dried in’ ink on the cartridge. Once you have run the clean printheads function, print a ‘nozzle check’ test print and you should see a test pattern for each of the different coloured ink in your cartridge, this obviously differs by cartridge type i.e. black, tri-colour or photo-cartridge. If any of these are faint or missing, repeat the clean printheads function and print a further ‘nozzle check’. If after the second process any are still faint or missing we can assume the cartridge is faulty.
If after taking the above action, the cartridge is still not working and you are sure the fault is not linked to the printer itself, please request a return by logging in and going to 'My Orders' and requesting to return an item.
We will then supply you with an RMA and request that you return the Products to us via our freepost address, which will be provided to you at the same time as the RMA. Upon returning the goods, please quote the RMA and your order number. Once received back into our warehouse we will test your cartridge. If it is established that the cartridge is faulty, we will issue a replacement or full refund to you via your original payment method or credit your account accordingly.
12. Incorrect Products
12.1. If you believe the product is incorrect because your printer is not listed on the box, this may not be the case. Each cartridge type is often used in many different printers. As the printer manufacturers frequently release new printer models, we can often have stock where the packaging does not contain the latest model list.
12.2. You can check that you have the correct cartridges by comparing the cartridge models listed for your printer against a printer listed on the box using the information on the Website. If the cartridge model numbers match then you have received the correct cartridges.
Important: If you are still in doubt, please contact us on [email protected] or 01423 701704 BEFORE opening the product packaging. Unfortunately, we cannot exchange any non-faulty product where the seals have been broken or if the cartridge has been used.
12.3. If you are sure that the product is incorrect please log in and go to 'My Orders' to request an RMA number and arrange return.
If it is established that the cartridge is incorrect, we will issue a replacement or full refund to you via your original payment method or credit your account accordingly.
13. Goods Damaged in Transit
13.1. If any goods were damaged in transit, we ask that you report it to us by requesting a return from the 'My Orders' section of the website once you've logged in. We will then supply you with an RMA. If we accept that the goods were damaged in transit then we will ask you to return the goods to us, via our freepost address which will be provided to you at the same time as the RMA, immediately quoting the RMA and your order number. Once received back into our warehouse, we will issue a replacement or full refund to you via your original payment method or credit your account accordingly.
