I was about to print off a document which I needed for a meeting in a couple of hours when the little window on my printer informed me that the cartridge was missing or not detected. This was a cartridge I had replaced only a few days earlier and which I knew full well was residing in its usual place inside the machine and which had also been working until now. But how to let the incompetent piece of hardware know this? Instant instruction courtesy of the internet – that’s how.
No need for manuals or calling someone out. A short video posted by a helpful person with the same reassuring tones of an airline pilot when an aircraft hits a spot of turbulence was all that was needed. A series of button combinations was executed and the situation was rectified in a few minutes. Wonderful.
