I remember the printer I had a few years ago had a cartridge that nobody wanted to refill because their machines apparently couldn't do it. I ended up throwing it all away because I didn't need a printer. Last year I got a new very economical one to print my wedding invitations on. I used it for other things until the ink started to get so low that it was printing barely readable text. So I took it to get it refilled which was much easier and inexpensive than getting a new cartridge.
Do you refill your printer ink cartridges?
