Q. Does using a re-manufactured cartridge affect my printer warranty?

Using a re-manufactured cartridge does not affect any printer’s warranty unless the printer is damaged by refilled cartridge. Often leaking in a poorly refilled cartridge, clogs the printer head, damaging it; you cannot claim warranty in this case. A reputed cartridge filling company makes sure that the refilled cartridges they supply do not damage your printer, and in case of any unprecedented occurrence, they take care to get your printer repaired. However it advised to read your printer’s warranty terms and use cartridges accordingly.

Sometimes empty and worn out,  disposed cartridges are used to manufacture new cartridges.

But the process of grounding up and using them for manufacture,  produces emissions and wastes that are harmful for the environment. It is more safe and economical to reuse and refill cartridge than recycle them.

It is checked for quality prior to delivery. A performing test is held, on site, after delivery and replaced if not found satisfactory.
