Does the lid always stay open??? Why not drill out a dime size hole in the top of the lid directly over where the black tube turns down and run the feed through there and close the lid? If you don't you are going to shut down the printer eventually due to dust accumulation. :sad:

Are these cli carts smart enough to know if they have been inserted into a different printer after they are refilled?

I don't KNOW this for certain but somehow I doubt very much that Canon would have gone to all of the trouble of creating these new chips with encoded algorithms, etc.. and then leave a big loophole open for refilling companies to be able to collect up the iP4200 carts, refill them and then sell them back on the basis that people would not likely receive their own cart back.

Like I said, I don't have any proof but I just can't see it being likely...

dont think any attempt to refill the cartridge is detected, what is detected is an"officially empty" cart is being placed in the machine and apparently being used and therefore voiding the warranty.......it doesnt know or care whether you have put ink in it or not....."This parrot is dead! "
This is an extract from one of my previous posts in this thread. This condition will apply whichever CLI8 compliant machine is being used. The chip stays "told " and communicates this to whichever machine it is placed in.

BTW, in case anyone has missed it, chip resetters are marketed for the Epson printers. Hopefully the gnomes are at work designing chip resetters fro the Canon.
