When I first joined this forum I did read a post (and now can't find it), The author explained how to use a third cartridge to rotate them and "trick" the printer into thinking it has new cartridges. Can someone, or the author please direct me to that so I and my husband can read it again and understand it further.

Thank you.

The rotation trick may not be as effective on newer printers. But the method is that you swap out 3 cartridges. You would number them 1 thru 3. Install the first, let the printer recognize it, then remove it. Repeat the steps with the 2nd and 3rd cartridge. By the time you put in the 1st one back in, the memory of it in the printer should of been dropped and unknown. So the printer should see it as new.

As mentioned before, this trick may not work with newer printers, as the memory capacity has upgraded in recent years.
