Q. Why doesn't the cartridge I received fit like the one that's already in my printer?
A. Most of our remanufactured cartridges are sent to you equipped with a protective clip or tab that must be removed before installation. Once you open the package and carefully remove the protective clip as well as any protective tape that is covering the print head of the cartridge you should be able to fit the cartridge in the designated spot.
Q. How should I store my cartridges?
A. You should always store your cartridges in room temperature and in an upright position.
Q. What does it mean to use a remanufactured inkjet cartridge?
We use professionally remanufactured OEM brand inkjet cartridges that have been through one cycle of service and have been recharged. The print head nozzles and inkjet cartridges are thoroughly cleaned before being filled with the same ink formulation. Each compatible inkjet cartridge is tested and must meet rigid standards.
Q. What is the shelf life of compatible brand ink cartridges?
A. Ink cartridges have a 2-3 year shelf life.
Q. Will my printer warranty be voided if I use compatible ink cartridges?
A. Many of our customers initially ask whether not using a compatible ink or toner cartridge will void their printer’s factory warranty. The answer is NO. In fact, using third-party ink and toner cartridges has no effect on your printer’s warranty.
The truth is that it is federally required that a manufacturer preserve its warranty regardless of whether or not the owner uses first- or third-party peripherals with the warrantied item.
A federal law, Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975, authored by Sen. Warren Magnuson and Rep. John Moss set a national standard for product warranties. The Magnuson-Moss law prohibits a manufacturer from creating a “tie-in” provision–meaning that a manufacturer can’t void an owner’s warranty just because he or she used a properly functioning component made by another company.
Q. How can I receive coupon codes?
A. You can receive a coupon codes on Facebook (link to facebook.com/Inkbarn), Pinterest (pinterest.com/Inkbarn) on RetailMeNot and other affiliate sites. Each month, our marketing department offers coupons for savings on select products, free shipping, and other great offers.
Q. Will I have to pay sales or use tax on my order?
A. Local sales or use tax applies to California residents only.
Q. Do you offer expedited shipping?
A. Yes, we do offer expedited shipping if you contact our customer service department at 866-465-2276 to make arrangements as this option isn't available online at this time.
