The Epson T1285 multipack of ink cartridges works with over twelve different Epson printers currently on the market. The multipack is made up of four different colours; T1281 ink cartridge black, T1282 ink cartridge- Cyan, T1283 ink cartridge – Magenta and T1284 ink cartridge – Yellow. These four ink cartridges will not work independently of each other; in other words, if one ink cartridge runs out the other ink cartridges will not work until you replace the empty. This can be annoying for most of us as we feel we are held to ransom and unable to print until we replace one colour ink cartridge. T1285 ink cartridges in Ireland are easily obtained locally however the cost of these ink cartridges usually outweighs the cost of replacing the printer! A good way to get good value compatible T1285 ink is to go on-line and shop around for the best deal and maybe even get low cost delivery or free ink cartridges. Compatible T1285 cartridges are now manufactured to a very high standard and you should have no real problems with using these cartridges. On some occasions the printer will tell you it doesn’t recognise the ink cartridge, this is usually easily remedied by taking the cartridges out and re-inserting them again, you can even try unplugging the printer and removing the USB lead and leave for 5 minutes. It’s worth persevering with trying to resolve any issues, as there are great savings to be made.
