Ink cartridges can't be refilled more than a few times before they lose vacuum or can hold pressure which can affect performance.

Try to use only genuine new Canon cartridges for max. performance and quality.

My canon pixma iP 1800 does not recognise refilled colour cartridge. Can you suggest a fix?


  1. For the not-so-tech friendly, installing ink cartridges in printers can be messy and time-consuming. Although companies such as Canon are constantly trying to make designs more convenient for all users, there are still several tips that can help new printer owners install Canon PG-40 printer cartridges without mess or hassle.
  2. Compatibility
  3. Although many printer cartridges are specific to only a few models, the Canon PG-40 printer cartridge was designed for use with many models of the Canon Pixma and even some of the Canon fax machines. As of September 2010, the Canon PG-40 ink cartridge can be used with the Pixma iP1600 through iP1800 printers, the iP2600 printer, the MP140 through MP190 printers, the MP210 printer, the MP460 and 470 printers, the MX300 and MX310 printers and the JX200 and JX210P fax machines. This versatility allows users to stick with the same type of ink cartridge over the life of several printers and allows small business offices an opportunity to buy one type of cartridge for all office printing requirements.
  4. Refill
  5. Replacing printer cartridges can be expensive and, if it is possible, as it is with the Canon PG-40, refilling is a cheaper and more environmentally friendly option. Refill the PG-40 by gathering a 10 cubic centimeter syringe with a 1.5-inch needle, a pair of latex free gloves, an MIS Yellow Drill Tool, Scotch tape and black ink. Remove the label from the top of the cartridge and use the yellow drill tool to open the vent hole that was covered by the label. Next, load the syringe with 20 CCs of black ink and inject it into the ink hole (where ink leaves the cartridge for the page.) Make sure the needle reaches the bottom of the ink tank and then slowly inject the ink into the cartridge, stopping when the ink begins to well up at the needle insertion point. Now remove the needle and clean the top of the cartridge off to avoid color contamination. Put a small strip of Scotch tape over the vent hole and poke a small hole in the tape with a pin. Now reinsert the cartridge and run up to three cleaning cycles to calibrate the printer.
  6. Resetting the Ink Level
  7. While refilling ink in a PG-40 can save money, it can also cause difficulties when using the automatic ink level sensor. Reset this sensor by removing the cartridge after the printer has been calibrated and placing a thin strip of Scotch tape on the line of gold-colored leads nearest the ink hole on the bottom of the ink cartridge. Replace the cartridge and wait for the computer to display a warning about the ink cartridge being loaded incorrectly. Remove the cartridge and move the tape from the first to the second level of leads and replace the cartridge. When the PC displays a message that the cartridge is not recognized, remove the cartridge and replace without the tape. The ink level will be reset.

Canon ip1200 black cartridge wont recognize after i refill


Dear lim,
Here a solution for you. The cartridge of this printer has memory chip that store ink level data inside. Once the cartridge is empty we cannot restore ink level data to be full. To continue using refilled cartridge you need to deactivate ink level detection function first. Perform this step: when the message 'The following cartridge cannot be recognized' appears press Resume/Cancel button. Do this for each cartridge you refill;if you refill both black & colour cartridge do this tip two times (once for each cartridge).
Please rate this as fixya ok.
Regards,

Refilling a cartridge


You need to use a very thin needle (25 gauge medical needle works well) on a syringe. There is a tiny hole in the canon 40 cartridge under the label which you need to fill. To refill the color cartridge (canon 41) as you look at the cartridge, the hole at the top is magenta, the hole to the left is blue and the hole to the right is yellow, use a separate syringe and needle for each color. Every now and then you will need to use some cartridge cleaner to soften/clean the sponge in the cartridge. I use 0.5cc of cleaner then let sit overnight before adding ink. You need to be sure the label is replaced well or use good tape to keep the ink from escaping.

Ink cartirdge


If it is a black cartridge then you can put the hole anywhere in the top as it is all one sponge. If it is colour then you need the holes in the following places.
Magenta (Red) - Top Centre.
Cyan (Blue) - Bottom Left.
Yellow - Bottom Right.

If your still unsure it is quite simple to pop the lid off with a normal knife and refill directly into the sponges. When finished you can simply stick the lid back on, although this is not as tidy looking it will work fine.

Good luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.
