But I do it all the time on my old StylusPhoto and my new Stylus 900. About the only negative thing it does is resets the ink guage so the printer thinks it has a full cartridge when it is only partially full. You need to seal the vent holes and the pierced seals at the exit ports if you remove a cart since it can drip. I put a strip of clear waterproof Duct tape (from my local Walmart) over the exit ports and then just let the printer pierce that when I reinstall it. Haven't had any problem with that yet (knock wood!). On a 3000 it is a bit difficult to seal the exit port so I just put the carts in individual plastic bags and seal the bag. They sometimes suck in air which can cause problems so before I reinstall I stick in a hypodermic and draw out any extra air. Dan Culbertson - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
