I am new to the group here and I already found a solution to my problem.  


I am switching from a Canon iP 3500 PRIXMA inkjet printer to a newer printer.  


The problem: The printer cartridges are still good for the iP 3500.


I'm hoping to find another printer that is compatible with those cartridges.


I had been frustrated with the results from Google and didn't know where else to turn.


This morning I just switched around the terms I typed on Google and suddenly I've gotten better results. *sigh*


Sometimes it is just changing the way we think that eventually finds our solution.


Or just taking a step back from the problem.


I went to Staples.com and found that when I looked at the print cartridge type I have that it also lists the printers that can use it.

Unfortunately, those cartridges are only used for the Canon Printers, and not for any other Brand Printers
