I'm not sure, but I'm suspecting that Canon has build a trick in his chipped cartridges. Since using my CISS on my Canon IX4000 wide carriage printer, I have the feeling that the printer does more head cleans than it does when using the original still working chipped cartridges (when newly bought).
Could it be that the chips are programmed in a way that the forces the printer to perform more than necessary print head cleaning cycles, when the ink monitor is disabled, in order to use more than necessary ink in refilled cartridges/CISS systemsin order for youto buy their own chipped cartridges ? Maybe I'm a bit paranoia about this.
Does someone have any experience with this ? Could he/she tell me that this is true or not, orif this problem (if this is really one) iscaused by something else ?
