Epsom PictureMate Cartridge

  ened 17:38 20 Feb 2006

My wife's machine only printed 13 pictures with the supplied cartridge.
They (retailers) claimed that a cartridge will print the supplied amount of pics (100).
I know they put only semi-charged ones in with a new machine but I thought 13 was a rather small amount.
Anybody any experience of the PictureMate?

Does seem rather small for a NEW machine
I understood that these machines came with cartridge and paper pack for 100 prints.
Take it up woth custpmer service with Epson.
They are very obliging - you may get a replacement cart and another for your trouble.

Most printers come with a trial cartridge, which usually contains at least one third to one half of printer ink. 13 pictures seems very low, but on the other hand, pictures take quite a lot of ink compared to straight forward letter printing.

Thanks jack I have just mailed them.

spuds As you say it does seem low - but it is designed to print pictures and the cartridges are supposed to print 100 4X5s
