I see that the supermediastore.com is now selling compatable cartridges for this printer. However they are not chipped. What would this mean in actually using them?

Hi
It means that you must remove the chips from the original cartridges
and adhere them to the corresponding third-party replacement cartridges.
I undertook this exercise today with no success whatsoever. My printer
is a Canon Pixma Ip5200 and I ordered replacement cartridges from a
German source advertised on E-Bay.
At the start of play the cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges where
registering as empty and the small black ink tank was flashing low. The
only continuous light was on the large black cartridge.
I decided to swap the lot at the same time. When all the replacement
cartridges were installed, all the lights were out excepting the small
black one which was flashing.
I attempted to print a document but received an error message - 6502.
Does anyone know what that means? Nothing I tried would stop this error.
I never arrived at the point where I was receiving nag messages.
Having read somewhere that by installing just one new original cartridge
the printer started printing, this is what I tried. I would still have been ahead
of the game if it had worked; but it didn't.
£50 later and a new set of canon cartridges (Jeez,I can't keep this up) I loaded
them one at a time and switched printer off/on between cartridges, hoping that
the printer would spring to life before it consumed the lot. As I loaded each so the light would be restored on that cartridge.
The error message finally disappeared after loading four originals. The only
compatible accepted was the small black which continues to flash a low warning.
(even though it is full)
I should add that whilst the error message was showing the green and orange
lights were alternately flashing.
I have read in this forum of various successes in fitting CIS to Pixma ip4200
printers. Various suppliers advertise these systems as well as replacement
cartridges. They are advertised as suitable for both ip4200/ip5200 models. I have yet
to see a posting where the ip5200 printer is specifically mentioned as having been the printer that has undergone these modifications successfully. Could it be that
it is only an assumption that both the ip4200 and the ip5200 react in the same way
to chip swaps etc? I would be pleased to hear if other Ip5200 users have succeeded
in fitting CIS or used replacement cartridges.
Allow me to apologise in advance if I have posted this in the wrong place.
Cheers everyone.

Thanks for your reply. I dont think ill try this. I also have an iP6000D that takes third party cartridges and I found another new one for $99 and decided to buy that too. This way I should be set for some time with being able to use cheaper cartridges. I wonder how long the printer companies can keep up this high price gouging with the low cost of prints from online and walmart etc.
