I have a continuous ink set-up for my printing jobs for economical purposes. Through this set-up, I can print more than 3,000 pages without refilling the cartridges, but for sure it has an effects on my printer circuit components. What are these possible negative effects to my printer? Attached is an image of my printer set-up.

The Continuous Ink Printing effect

I'm currently using continuous ink system also and, personally, I think it's one of the greatest ideas in the history of printers.

While it is indeed a great thing, here are 2 negative things about it:

1. It voids your printer's warranty. Manufacturers would never accept repairs for printers that they know have been fitted with ink that's not recommended by them (that is, their own brand of inks of course).

2. If the ink is of poor quality (and it almost surely is because it is cheap), it is likely to dry up and clog your printers print head. Dried up ink is not good for your print head as it wears out the heads faster.

As to whether it has any effect on your printer's circuit components, there are none.

Although this solution seems to avoid frequent refills or changes of cartridges, which is annoying and expensive, as you said, there are some aspects to take into account.

A first thing to do is to take care about what ink you are using, because poor quality ink could damage your printer (this is also true for refills). Secondly, this kind of device could prevent you from benefiting from your warranty, as manufacturers would consider it as a violation of the terms of your warranty contract.

And finally, you need more place for your printer, which sometimes is critical.
