I searched on net and found that "there is no need for a chip resetter." Just

"override the ink level indicator.

Install cartridge and send a print job.
Error messages pop up (3, I think) that warn about third-party inks and other nonsense. Keep selecting "ok" or "continue."
Last message will tell you to override the ink-level indicator, press and hold the resume button for 3-5 seconds.

Done, and at no cost.

You will have to do this for each tank you install."

Is that true???

Yes. It's true. But you lose the ink level monitor for that cartridge. As Canon printers risk a head burnout when the cartridge gets empty, you have to continually monitor ink levels by removing the cartridge and checking visually.

There is a software monitor called InkMon which is quite good, but it only monitors usage from the PC. If you have a model with copier, like I do, The copy facility doesn't use the PC so ink usage for that function won't be monitored.
