Hi,

What about this http://www.re-inks.com/Canon-classic...PASS-MP500.asp

They seem to sell the refill kit and guarantee that it works. Iwould assume they would include the chip resetter, otherwise what is the point to sell the stuff which won't work. I have MP500 and wondering what to do when the ink is out.
I see no mention of a chip resetter. They guarantee that their ink will give good results. If they had a chip resetter, or some other method other than the what is already known, then it would be a huge selling point and probably stated in big boldfaced type! Unfortunately the holy grail has not been found yet.

I got in touch with them and they said the chip won't be reset, it will be overridden. I didn't understand what they meat though. Does anybody know what it means? I guess I will just buy laser printer for text printing and use Canon for pics and color prints when needed..... Samsung 2510 is just 79Can$ and each ink catridge 22$.

But at the same time I think, that we go to a food store and leave 100$ there easy and we don't complain about it, or fill up the gas tank for 50$, but to feed the printer -we think it is too much.......well....

Everything you are wondering about can be learned from reading the last few pages in this thread. Reading the earlier posts prevents reinventing the wheel all the time.

See http://www.rihac.com.au/instructions/canon/IP4200.pdfsection 12 for an example of the "override" directions. While this PDF deals with sam Cahir's CIS systems, which appear to be well thought out and manufactured, some of the information may apply to most/all of the chipped Canon cartridge printers. To be sure, find the printer of interest via his home pagehttp://www.rihac.com.au- Categories - CISS Systems. After choosing the appropriate CISS System based on the printer model number you will see a link to instructions, within which will be directions for overriding the printer'slow inkmonitoring system.

It being holiday season and all, I left me printers pretty much working as expected over the holiday only to return to 3 of the 6 units I have showing problems with ink backflow (which indicates an air leak at the cartridge end) and a repeat of the yellow ink problem which I saw before.

Luckily I had something of a fresh head on and realised that my earlier troubleshooting had shown some additional symptoms that I didn't understand properly.... ie: sometimes the ink would pool around the ink receiver on the rubber pad.

.. I now think that the cause of this is that the ink receiver post doesn't make proper contact with the sponge in the cartridge (ie: there's a gap between the sponge and the post) so ink doesn't get drawn into the post but ends up all around it.

My quick and dirty fix was to find some cardboard to place above the problem cartridge to act as a wedge to push the cartridge down further when the printhead locking arm is down. This seems to have done the trick on one of the printers I've had problems with so I'll be checking the others tomorrow.


Overall it's still obviously guesswork but it looks a lot like there's a combination of factors at work here and for some reason the yellow ink is the most susceptable. Perhaps it flows slightly differently due to its components or it could be it's placement in the center of the printhead.. whatever it is, it's been a pretty big headache.

I was so glad to read this idea of yours. I was wondering about trying the same thing. Switching the carts back and forth worked on beating Epson's chipped cart system and it appears it works on Canon too. Nice going.

I have a Canon Pixma MP600, and I search to reset it, to be able to use refil cartridge, can anybody help me, by explaining me how, step by step?

thanks!

now I'm reading this topic, from start, maybe I fiind something usefull for my Canon MP600...


I found that:

"Canon MP 400/MP 730/MP 600

1) Enter SERVICE MODE.---
By pressing Menu-Copy-#

2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [OK] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.
"

somewhere, but I don't have menu, or copy buttons on my printer

it will be usefull for me just to enter in service mode ..

The EEPROM reset only resets the printers own counters (such as waste counter, etc..) it doesn't reset the ink counters in the cartridges themselves.

There is NO reset for Canon cartridges despite what some people are saying...
