It was last Thursday. I only use the PC computer for work and the printer is attached to it. I am contacting you from my IMAC.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No I cannot do that. All I want to do is to change the ink setting on the printer.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I wasn't able to do it.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I will take the printer in to be serviced. They told me $5 was the charge if you were able to help me.
Thank you but I must go now.
