Inkjet cartridge refill x from El Torito gone, New World Technology gone Empty Inkjet cartridge refill x from El Torito gone, New World Technology gone

I went to get my printer cartridge refilled today but the little booth across from El Torito is really and truly gone, cleaned out, empty, dusty and dirty.

So I went across the street to buy a new one from New World Technology in the El Torito Mall, and they too are gone. A new water filter accessories store is in their place and said they just cleaned out the space one night last month and poof!

Finally I went to Benno's Computers across from the Lake Chapala Review's offices and they sell inkjet cartridges "at the same prices as Office Max." They will also hunt down rare cartridges for you in Guadalajara, they charge a 200 peso hunting and gas fee. The guys are young and eager to help.

Just a heads-up.

I found out last night from a friend that Benno's fills cartridges too. I will try them sice LM!COM on Ocampo has been doing a lousy job filling cartridges. Had to take the last one back.

I too have an oldy, but goody 11 year old printer, HP Deskjet 932C and have been having trouble finding cartridges. I have Adrian Ramos looking for one in GDL now. He's my computer guy.

Martin doesn't operate anything any more. He no longer has a part in the business according to his ex wife. They are either separated or divorced.

Hmm, how interesting, because I actually went there and told them I was looking for a refill, and they told me to my face that they do NOT do refills.

Good to know, thanks Shirley.

I've also heard that there is one across the street from Manix Restaurant in Ajijic but have not yet checked that out.

Okay so I spent the afternoon getting all the scoop on the ink cartridge places above:

1. I picked up the brand-new cartridge from Benno's, it came in today exactly as promised. That's my backup!

2. Went to the place near Farmacia Guadalajara - down the block past Alfredo's Bazaar is Axxixnet. They were closed, but this was between 2-4 pm and they do not have any hours posted. Strike. Maybe next time or someone can add to this post.

3. Went down Ocampo and found Martin's place as described, they are at #32 Ocampo next to Early Bird Cafe, and across the street from Total Body Care and Manix Restaurant. They refilled my old cartridge for 80 pesos, while I waited. I did a test print and it looks great!

IMPORTANT: There is no sign on this place when it is open, as their name "LM.COM" is printed on the doors and you can't see the name until you actually walk in the place. But they had a LARGE SELECTION OF PRINTER INK for all brands, I even saw a Dell but that might've been a special order.

4. I was also told about a place in Jocotepec so I checked that out on my way home. It's called PC Mexico and is located directly across from the Banamex. I didn't have a cartridge to test there but will try them next time.

Printers away!

merry quote - 2. The place was Adrian Ramos, my computer guy. He is out on the road making epairs. To reach him, you need to call his cell phone as I do. You'll always reach him. He goes to GDL about twice a week for computer parts, etc.

I have had him fill cartridges recently and they ran out of ink after 10 pages, so I had to go back to have it refilled. They're not as good as they used to be. Then my partner printed photos and they faded within 1 month.

#2- I won't call ahead I'll just move onto the next place that is open, as you can see. If I'm in town I'm in hit-and-run mode and can't wait to get back to the south side.

#3 - I too had a cartridge filled at Martin's booth run out after a small number of pages, however I brought it back and they immediately refilled it again for free. They asked if I had printed some full color pages such as Google satellite maps and indeed, I had, but they refilled it for free anyway. That does suck the ink down and I forgot about that. That is why I tried his other main place and it was definitely about twice as stocked as their old little booth.

The guy on Ocampo is just not a guy I'd ever deal with unless you have time for hassles and trouble.
