Bought a Pro-10 for $100 did I get scammed?


I bought a used Pro-10 for $100 and was sure to clean the printhead before using it and all the inks show to be almost half way full except yellow which is empty but I tried using it for the first time to print a black and white image and it barely printed. It looks like how it should if I printed with near empty cartridges but it shows them as being near half full. There's no way that's normal right? I'm hoping they're just old cartridges or something and nothing's wrong with the printer.



The Pro-10 is a pigment ink printer. If it has been sitting a while unused it is possible the ink has dried up in the head. Run a nozzle check and see what is printing. If necessary run cleanings or deep cleanings.
