Erm... put simply... No, why on earth would that work.

All that will happen is that either:
a) both chips will decide they're empty
b) the chips will confuse the printer firmware and the printer will die, refuse to print, etc..
c) you'll burn yourself with the soldering iron, lose the will to live and wish you'd gone to the pub instead.


By all means experiment but do the experimenting yourself, don't put something like this forward and wait for someone else to do your dirty work so you can benefit from their smouldering hunk of melted plastic and leaking ink.

Oooh, wait, now isn't this the point where I yell something like

I TOLD YOU SO!



In fairness, I wish I'd been wrong but I still think that Canon haven't been entirely unreasonable in their approach, for reasons I've pointed out more than once.



Epson on the other hand are a bunch of underhand dirty cheating gits who just don't understand how badly their behaviour reflects against companies like Canon.

1. Boy? I'll take that as a compliment of my youthful complection.

2. How long have you played with Canon cartridges? I've got more than 2 years trying to figure them out under my belt.

3. Lazy? I think you mean't. "you're crazy to think I'm afraid"... Why on earth would I want you to be afraid???

As I said before, I very much doubt your idea will work. By all means give it a try but I can think of no logical or illogical reason for it to work at all. I suspect it will just result in an error code, due to chips being damaged or just because they'd both try to communicate at the same time.

Hehe... I am currently using a refilled IP3300 and haven't received any warranty warnings yet... Prolly 'cause I'm using it on a linux machine, but ironically enough, using Canon's Linux drivers...

so if something does break...I can say I didn't receive a warranty warning. (and that probably means the software hasn't had a chance to 'set' the warranty void flag on the printer...)

I downloaded MPTOOL and had great difficulty getting it to work...because all the instructions were discussed on a Russian website (in Russian). I used Google to translate the page but the translation was very difficult to understand. Early on I figured out the printer had to be in "low level mode" to communicate with MPTOOL. Figuring out how to get into "low level mode" was difficult (because of the Russian) but it's really quite easy:

Thanks Dan - I have downloaded MPTOOL and decoded the Russian notes with Babelfish.

Has anyone tried using MPTOOL with an MP210 printer? I couldn't get it to work with mine (as I understand the instructions so far, which may not be right), and I see that the MP210 is not listed as working with the program. I wondered if that is because noone has actually tried that printer, or because there is some basic reason why it will not work and I should give up trying. Grateful for any help.

I know in the early days there were no resetters and then a few came onto the market that were very expensive. In recent weeks I have seen a German company selling stand alone resetter unites that don't even require connection to a printer. These can be found at:
http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=170211213873

For a more expensive option there is a Chinese company selling resetters that can be found at: http://www.inkmaxhk.com/Canon_Resetter.aspx


Alternatively there are also quite a few compatible cartridges now coming on the market with chips. One place this can be found is: http://www.consumablecafe.co.uk/acat...les.html#a3100

The prices should now start to drop, as I knew once one resetter was made other people would just copy it and the prices would plummet. I am very happy about this as canon has had it too good for too long.

If anyone has any more links or know of cheaper suppliers please let me know.

Hope this helps

Adam

Has anyone tried the guy on Ebay selling a resetter for Canon? Item # is 160240400313 and seller ID is magic-chip.
He has a resetter for around $70. Anyone know if it works?

Marco, are you really suggesting someone would pay 25,000 Euro for a resetter? Is that a typo or am I missing something?

Thanks,
John
