No. Your printer wartanty cannot be voided just because you choose to use compatible products unless the manufacturer can prove that a compatible product caused direct damage to your printer. In cases such as this the manufacturer may choose not to repair your printer but the warranty would remain in effect for all other warranty issues.

At Inkdepot.com.au we understand that everyone wants to do things differently. For this reason, we have created a number of different ways to locate the cartridge you are looking for. You may use the Brand & Printer Select method located in the top of the left hand menu by selecting the Brand of your printer and then the Model of the Printer. This will display a list of cartridges suitable for your printer. You may use the Manufacturer's Listing also located on the left hand menu. Simply select the Manufacturer and a list of all printers made by this manufacturer will be displayed. The Printer Search box at the top will help you locate the printer you have if you know only part of the Printer's Model Number. For example "i8" would display 3 different printers from Canon with pictures where possible to help identify your printer. Selecting a specific printer from this list will then display the list of suitable cartridges. If your search identifies only 1 printer model, you will be taken directly to the list of suitable cartridges. The Cartridge Search box at the top will help you locate the cartridge you have if you know only part of the Cartridge's Model Number. For example "cli" might display 9 different cartridgess from Canon with pictures where possible to help identify your cartridge. This search method is also handy if you have a set of cartridges with similar model numbers.
Once payment has been confirmed, received or shown deposited as clear funds, goods will be dispatched within 24 business hours. Usually you will receive items no later than 3 working days, often the next day.
Our system checks the total value of your order when you "Check-out". At the delivery confirmation screen, if your order is above the "Free Shipping" value we have set, your order will automatically receive free delivery and no delivery charge will appear on your Order Confirmation details.
It is advisable to have someone available to receive your order when it is delivered. If this is not possible to organise at the time of ordering or you are only available at a specific time, please state this in the delivery instructions on the Delivery Information page when "Checking-out" and that you require the order to be left in an easy to locate place that you designate with "Authority To Leave Without Proof Of Delivery Signature". Otherwise, the courier may leave you a note informing you of the delivery attempt and how you might be able to collect your order. Please note that an additional delivery fee may apply for any order which cannot be successfully delivered as per instructions in the first instance.
Unfortunately no we do not have conventional stores. This was done on purpose to keep overheads as low as possible in order to keep prices as low as possible. Instead we have a central order facility which sorts orders and allocates them to the dispatch centre for immediate picking and prompt delivery.
Placing your order and making your payment will ensure your order will be processed, picked and packed as quickly as possible for dispatch. Your order should be delivered to you within 3 working days, often this is the next day. If we have problems processing your order then we will try to contact you, so please ensure you have given us a valid telephone number and email address.
Some brands supply normal toner cartridges as well as prebate toner cartridges - both are genuine catridges from brand manufacturers with the same yields. The prebate toners are cheaper but the cartridges need to be returned to the manufacturer once empty and the cartridges themselves cannot be refilled.
Very occasionally a specific compatible cartridge will print perfectly but will not work with the ink level-checking software on a particular printer. This is the brand manufacturer's way of trying to discourage you from using compatible cartridges. On these rare occasions, turning your printer off and then on again may resolve the problem, but otherwise you will need to physically check the cartridge to determine of there is still ink or toner in it.
