Pick a Potty Help

Finding the right kit

To help you find the right Printer Potty for your printer we’ve provided the Pick-a-Potty tool on our home page.

  1. Simply type in your printers model number
    eg: for the Photo Expression XP605 you would type in 605
  2. Select the appropriate match suggested.
  3. The tool then provides you with an information window which indicates if your printer model is already compatible with one of our kits.The tool also indicates if installation instructions and a waste ink counter reset facility is available.
  4. Simply click on any of the icons for more information.

 

Note: In some instances, particularly for new model printers, there isn’t immediate kit compatibility or reset support. Of course, we are work hard to add support for new (and some old) printers so this information is constantly being updated.

 

 

Access Limits

The Pick-A-Potty tool is intended to potential Printer Potty customers with information to help with their own printers.

However, wholesale data trawling is discouraged and as such we have a system that identifys and limits such behaviour.

We’re aware it’s not 100% perfect so to help genuine end-users this guide will help avoid further restrictions in future.

What’s The Best Way To Use the Pick-A-Potty Tool

It’s pretty unlikely that you own 3 different printers, that all hit “Service Required” on the same day so ordinarily you shouldn’t have any problems.

Simply restrict your searches to the printer(s) that you have a direct interest in.

Will I Be Able To Access Additional Printer Models?

Depending on the number of searches you’ve already done, you may find you need to wait between a couple of minutes to an hour before you will be able to access additional information.

If in doubt, please contact us with the printer models you require info’ on and w’ll see what we can do to help.

Installation instructions unavailable

Installation instructions not available

The printer model you selected (via Pick-a-Potty) is not supported with installation instructions.

While it’s possible that instructions may be provided in the future, such support is not planned for this particular printer model

This could be for a number of different reasons but usually it is due to considerations such as:

  • Printer design makes a waste kit installation impractical
  • Age and lack of interest/availability for this printer

 

Please Note:

If you are particularly keen to get this printer documented or just wish to get further clarification as to why this printer is not supported please contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss it further.
