I don't want to buy ink if this printer won't work anymore. Has anyone seen this happen?:

EDIT:

This is an HP Photosmart C4280 All-in-one Printer-Scanner-Copier.

I'm just asking because you can't return a partially used ink cartridge, and that is the only way to test it.

And, I would like to hear if you have seen this before, bought ink, and the printer would not work anymore.

How did all that ink get all over the inside?
Looks like an ink cartridge leaked all over the place.

Are you using refilled ink cartridges?

Edit: You can buy a new printer for probably less than what the cartridges would cost to test it. Once you open the cartridges you can not return them.

In the beginning there was the command line.

Using my lay CSI skills.....it appears those ink drops are very low velocity drops....no spatter....only a couple of runs.:whistle:
Almost looks like the printer was stood on edge.
