They hate life. I swear they do. the only reason I haven't ax-murdered/defenestrated/drop-kicked/exploded my printer is because it's my scanner too.
It's all "OH MY GOD YOU'RE OUT OF INK"
and then it was like "OH. You know how I'm supposed to automatically move the ink head so you can replace ink? Well I don't feel like doing that anymore. Ever."
So -I- moved the ink head (which it didn't like, it kept moving it back.) and replaced the ink. Just the black ink. Then it was all "LOL YOU DON'T HAVE COLOR INK" even though I was printing in Black and White, so I took the ink out. And THEN it was all "LOL THERE'S AN UNRECOGNIZED INK CARTRIDGE." because I had to force the ink cartridge in there because it was being a dick. So I switched it off and back on several times, took the ink tank out and put it back in several times, in varying order. Smacked the printer. And put the empty ink tanks back in. Now it's finally showing some signs of life. But it still complains about the lack of color ink every time I try to print. I can get around it and it'll actually -let- me print but I have to press buttons first. I'm not spending a ton of money on color ink though, because I don't need it.
So yeah. If it weren't my scanner too, I'd just trash the thing and get one that doesn't try to outsmart me.
But anyway. I've got really dumb PE work to do. I have to make a children's book! For PE! I wouldn't mind but... It's PE... I better graduate. :/
