    Can I force the XC-540 to print with one cartridge empty, or do both have to have ink in them?
    If one can't be empty, what's the use of having two?

    If the ink is actually "empty", No, the machine will not print. It will beep at you and may even call you an idiot in Chinese.

    Then I can't see the use of two slots per color. What am I missing?

    I'm not Chinese, but maybe for large quantity printing?

    I think you are missing the point, or that you might not know how the XC-540 works.

    I have a really hard time believing that. Are you sure, or is it speculations from your side?

    It's true. One cart for each channel of the head.

    i have ran a little to finish a job by taping the empty tab in on the cartridge. be careful though. you run too much you get air in the line when it runs all the way out.

    I suddenly feel like I'm posting in a Counter Strike forum. Do you think I should move on to another forum with my questions? I'm asking because I am looking for answers, but it seems like all I get is a couple of trolls.

    or move on to a question that the answer really matters. You found your answer to the real question, but now you want the answer to why the wheel is round?

    Sorry that you feel that way about my question. I didn't know that you would get so upset. The next time I would recommend that you avoid reading my posts. Or answer my questions. I appreciate my time way too much.

    Obviously not when you have questions like that.

    I ask a legit question and I get a conspiracy theory back. Do you really think that I'm just going to buy that from someone I don't know? That is what I call an insult.

    Also, how come you all of a sudden are speaking in terms of "to the best of my knowledge/experience" when it was a fact at first?

    I still do not believe that Roland put two carts per color in the XC-540 just to f*ck with the end user, and they probably won't admit it either, so a letter to them won't help.

    So far I have got one answer: "One cart for each channel of the head." This would explain it, but claiming that Roland put it there to **** us off, or that you have to be Chinese to understand (still trying to figure out why a Japanese company would use hidden messages in Chinese in the display), is not enough.

    I do admit that I don't think that what I just wrote will clarify anything to you though. It's probably a mistake even trying.

    So you mean that I shouldn't care asking about stuff I probably can't change? I wonder how the world would look like if everybody followed that.

    Also, racial jokes? Really?

    No moron, don't wonder why the wheel is round.

    And yes, if moron is a race, then I'm racist.

    No, I mean what you wrote about Japanese vs Chinese:

    Doesn't it all sound the same? :banghead:

    I'm quite finished with you as I won't go as low as to call names. Sorry and good luck in the future.
