Xerox 8570 will not accept "starter" ink...what is the work around

Xerox 8570 will not accept "starter" ink...what is the work around

Xerox 8570 will not accept "starter" ink...what is the work around

(OP)
I have a Xerox 8570 printer, and have been purchasing rainbow ink pack for my printer (Xerox brand). These rainbow packs apparently come with a new printer.

When I went to install a new set of ink, I received an error message stating "Starter Ink Quota Exceeded"

How can I continue to use this ink, as it is half the price of the ink in an ink pack?

RE: Xerox 8570 will not accept "starter" ink...what is the work around

This is an excerpt from another post: http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=1667092 where we discuss cut down 8870 ink being even cheaper than the starter ink.

I just hit the dreaded "Starter ink quota exceeded" on my 8570 (ink p/n 108R00926). Of course I have 4 more boxes of 8570 starter ink on hand. I moved the foot from position "D" to position "C" on each stick using an X-acto knife I heated on our gas stove. The printer took the modified ink fine.

@ oregondean
Need your help. I also have the 8570 and having the same issue with the starter ink. I have looked all over the place trying to find Position 'C' on the stick but could not locate. There is a 'D' and 'A'. Could you please describe it exactly what you mean by moving the foot position. It would be most helpful. I wish someone posted a YouTube video but after relentlessly searching the net, I gave up. Thanks for your help.
