A printer can function perfectly if it is equipped with compatible cartridges. If you have a multifunctional Brother printer, such as Brother DCP-145C, you have to have it equipped only with ink cartridges that are compatible with it because without compatible cartridges, only one of its three functions can be put into practice. This printer is referred to as a multifunctional printer because it can be used for printing, scanning and photocopying. If it is not equipped with functional cartridges, you can only use it to scan. A printer is no more called a printer if you cannot use it to print, is it?
In order to keep your printer filled with ink, you can either replace its empty cartridges or refill them by using a refill kit. Refilling your printer’s empty cartridges is the cheapest way to keep your printer everlastingly supplied with sufficient ink. You can even infuse the cartridges so that you don’t have to refill them frequently. However, both refilling and infusing cartridges, unless recommended by the printer manufacturer, are not recommended ways to keep your printer’s ink available. Although considered more expensive, replacing your old cartridges with new replacement cartridges is regarded as the proper way to keep your printer perfectly operating. There are many reasons why refilling your printer’s old cartridges is not recommended. One of them is that the ink used in the refilling process, although still compatible, has different characteristics than those of ink contained by OEM cartridges.
Nevertheless, for you and many other printer owners, refilling the old cartridges often becomes a preferable choice because it is a cheap choice. If you hesitate to replace the old cartridges with new ones simply because you think that new OEM cartridges are expensive, you may need to think about using brother lc61 ink cartridges. Those cartridges are compatible with your multifunctional Brother printer but they are not as expensive as ordinary cartridges that you often use.
