I started to refill my Photo Black cartridge today and immediately noticed that it was thick like sludge. I stopped immediately.
This is the first refill (second filling) of the Photo Black ink. The bottle was first opened on April 1, 2015. The bottle shows an expiration date of June 2016. The cap was tight when I opened the bottle.
The cone color ink bottles are all stored in a cabinet in my office that has an average temperature of about 70 degrees.
Do I need to throw this ink out and order a new bottle? I do not remember the ink being thick when I originally filled the cartridge.
The bottle is about half full, Since it still has a year before its expiration date can I return the bottle and get credit for the unused portion.
Fortunately/unfortunately? the cartridge is still half full in the printer. Is it possible that the ink in the cartridge has also thickened?
Have you had this problem in the past?
Please advise me on what to do?
