Go on the Choice website and contact them from there. They will be very helpful and will point you in the right direction or recommend a replacement.

I would suggest that you contact Choice for advice.

I stopped using Choice a couple of years ago, when I started having a problem or two with their compatibles.

Three other alternatives, are to do a Google search, go to the HP Forum or try click here would also mention, that on one occasion, I contacted HP support for advice on a printing problem, and they suggested using a driver from one of their other printer ranges, which resolved the problem. Trouble is, I have now forgot what that problem was?.

I stopped buying Choice's Think carts for my Epson a while ago. They might seem cheap but only have about 8/9ml of Ink. Jettech carts from Inkfactory have 13ml for colours and 16ml for black. With the BOGOF offer they work out at about £4 each, much the same as Choice's Think carts and to be honest the quality is better. Ordered some this week on Wednesday and they were delivered Thursday, post free.

Meanwhile whilsst awaiting your responses, I visit my local Cartrifge WorldHE checked the Choice- its a dud/ Sold me one forchoices price plus refill of the cart whent heeded for 25% less.

So good bye Choice- will try for a refund.

SparkyJack , best of luck for a refund. I moved to Technotiger's recommendation for Inkredible quite some time ago and have had no problems so far. Choice, in my very humble opinion, are tat.
