Can you please provide me with information regarding the CIS system. I am interested in purchasing these in large quantities to sell within our shop system across Australia.

Whoa there nelly...

I'm not selling the kits nor would I want to as there's still a number of unresolved issues with the chipped cartridges that could well affect the long term usage of a CIS.

You should bear in mind that a CIS for the iP4200 or any other chipped Canon would need to use Canon OEM cartridges (with chips still intact) so it's not something you could source easily and/or cheaply...

Also a small matter of this in the details:

So, you'd still need to get your users to transfer their chips which isn't that easy for your average end user and there's still no guarantee that the CIS is going to continue to work forever either... although for all that mine is still ticking over..

He's just referring to the lid microswitch which is located on the right side... This tells the printer when the lid is closed or open so you just need something to hold the switch in the down position so the printer thinks the lid is closed.

A CIS kit would obviously lift the lid up and stop the switch from being pushed down properly.

You dont. The lights are activated by how many times the nozzles have fired -regardless of how much ink is physically seen to be in the cart, (or how it got there)

Eventually the counters will state that the cart is empty, even tho its not, then you have to go through the Canon "on your own head be it procedure" which withdraws the ink level monitor for that cart. Thereafter you must physically monitor the level of the cart(s) on a regular basis, refilling before coming empty on the resovoir side. If you run the cart dry you will risk burning out your printhead.
