    The aim was to halve the cost of a replacement cartridge.

    The refill was obtained from

    I completely emptied the original cartridge, checking that it weighed
    500 grams. I followed the instructions exactly and the operation went
    very simply and smoothly.

    I printed 24 good copies without problems but then the cartridge

    I contacted the refill supplier about this and they couldn't have been
    more apologetic, refunding my cash immediately.

    I spoke to their engineer about the problem and he said that this was
    a rare occurrence (about 1 in 800) and that nothing more could be done
    as the jamming causes a sponge part in the cartridge to be damaged.

    I was impressed with their honesty and swift readiness to compensate
    me and said that I would try again. They responded by sending me
    another refill kit (in addition to refunding my payment).

    Disappointing technically but rewarding in a business sense.
