    Great Tutorial. I was always not sure it comes with printers problems. Video tutorials for refilling cartridges and troubleshoot processes help me a lot.

    I am definitely a visual learner. When you talked about lifting parts of the printer upwards, I envisioned being super cautious. The last thing I want is to lift the wrong part or even to lift to hard and snap parts of the printer out of place. I just bought the printer, so I am not in the mood to buy a new one so soon.
