How to Get Maximum Ink from a Cartridge?
To get the maximum ink from your new ink cartridge, you will need to use it very frugally, clean the print heads regularly, and also use the print quality setting. Here are a few steps that will help you get the maximum ink from your cartridge.
STEP 1: The Draft Mode
Maximizing ink usage means maximizing the amount of printouts. Therefore, it’s important to select the draft mode, whenever you can. This will reduce the ink used for the printing process and print more pages.
STEP 2: Select the Cartridges
If you want to take a black and white printout, do not select the colour ink cartridges for the process of printing. A colour cartridge will mix various colours to create black ink. This wastes large amounts of ink. So, just select the black cartridge from printer settings.
STEP 3: Manage the Colour
Once again the printer settings come in handy. If you are printing rough drafts just change the printer setting to draft. The default setting is ‘best quality’. The final version could then be printed in the best quality mode.
STEP 4 – Current Page
There are times when you want to print just one page on a document that has multiple pages. Some people just give the command to print the whole document. This will waste ink. In order to get the maximum ink from your cartridge you need to select the ‘Print current page’ option.
STEP 5: Cost of Cartridge
Once you realise the expense incurred in buying or refilling a cartridge, you will automatically adopt the steps given above!
