Suggestions for a cheap colour printer that can use compatibles?

    It looks like my trusty Epson R265 that I use for colour printing where quality isn't the top priority (mainly CD/DVD labels) has probably died at some point in the last 12 months since I last used it*.

    I am doing a little project in the next few weeks where I need to do several dozen colour prints (possibly more than that) but the quality doesn't have to be perfect, just able to do it cheaply.

    So does anyone have any suggestions as to a cheap, colour inkjet that can use compatible carts?

    *My guess is the PSU as it was making a whining noise, so I'll pull it apart to check but at the moment I haven't even tried a new power cable as it's a pain in the neck to pull out and work on:p

    Canon iP 7250 can use Refillable carts or reuse the old ones. Plenty of Utube videos to show you how.

    Epson are quite forgiving about non OEM cartridges. As far you don't go down the nasty ones, should be fine.
