Ready print
« on: Tuesday 07 March 23 11:15 GMT (UK) »
I have an Epson printer and there is an offer to take out a subscription for their inks.
I know that it works by reading the chip on the ink cartridge and will send you inks by post when required. But my question is do I need to leave my printer on permanent standby for this to happen? I prefer to turn off my printer when not in use and when I go away turn off all non essential electrical items as I don't like leaving things on standby.

I have a similar subscription with HP and know that they look at my printer around the first of a month to see how many pages I have printed, so I leave it on for a few hours on that day. As far as ink levels are concerned I think the printer is looked at whenever it is on and ink is sent if required, I don't think you need worry about keeping yours switched off until you need to print.
