Q. What is the shelf life of Ink and toner cartridges?
A. Properly stored the shelf life of an unopened ink or toner cartridge is approximately 1 year. In order to achieve this optimal shelf life, Proper storage conditions are:
Store at room temperature - Do not expose to repeated freezing temperatures or extreme heat.
Q. How many times can a cartridge be refilled?
A. The answer varies depending on the manufacturer and the model. All inkjet cartridges have a limited life span, and typically a cartridge will last between 3 - 10 refills due to the electronics that control printer jets. Small resistors on the cartridge overheat when the ink runs out, therefore limiting the life of the cartridge. You can extend the life of your cartridge by not letting the ink run out completely. All of our cartridges pretested with equipment designed to identify weak resistors and in addition we post print test to insure a high quality print.
Q. What can I do if the cartridge print nozzles are clogged?
A. Uneven printing, skipping, or no print may suggest clogged print nozzles. If a cartridge has been left unused or stored for a long period of time, its print nozzles may become blocked with old dried ink. One method is to allow the print heads to soak on a folded paper towel damped with tap water for 2-3 minutes this should help unclog the print nozzles and restore print quality.

- If print cartridge cleaning is required, only use lint-free cloths. If a cleaning agent is required, use a lint-free cloth slightly damped with purified water only. Do not use any other cleaning agents.
- If a printer will not be used for extended time periods, turn off printer so in-machine storage steps are deployed by the printer.
- Periodically run your printer's head cleaning program if your printer sits idle for long periods of time (days or weeks). (Refer to your printer's owner's manual)
- When you first notice symptoms of image quality fading, skipping or streaking, replace the appropriate cartridge. This will ensure the cartridge can be re-used.
- Do not touch the electrical contacts or print head on a cartridge with your fingers and avoid static discharge (shocking) the cartridge.
- When replacing old cartridges with new cartridges, replace all covers and clips on the old cartridge to protect fragile components and ensure re-usability.
