Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
The main problem of canon printers nowadays is that it has lifespan when the waste counters of the printers become full you can no t print anymore.
To fix this problem all you need is intravenous fluid hose,phillips screw driver, drill,empty container and a lot of guts
first things first is open your canon printer using the screw driver after opening you'll find a hose where the printer cartridge sits this hose has a black stripe on it and goes directly to a catching pad which is commonly know as waste pads. pull out the hose from the waste pad and connect the intravenous fluid hose after you've done it secure it with a glue stick, glue gun or anything. Now drill a hole on the back side of the printer cover the hole must be of the same size of the intravenous fluid hose. assuminbg that you have already done this.insert the hose to the hole you've made and cover back your printer. now find a container for your waste ink. then you are done
to recycle the ink that you've collected on your catching basin just filter the ink out with a cloth and refill the waste ink as black. i've been doing these for a long time already and saved alot of ink for my black cartridge. hope this helps
