Question about Canon PIXMA iP6700D InkJet Photo Printer
I have a Canon Pxma ip6700D printer that purchased in May, 27 th takes 6 ink cartridges: black, cyan, photo cyan, magenta, photo magenta and yellow. I refilled the cartridges with a refill kit &ensured I filled the appropriate ink cartridge with the correct ink from the refill kit and put them back in their respective places in the print head. I also made sure the electrical contacts on each cartridge was clean & firmly locked in place in the printhead. Now when I use the printer, the LED display on the printer states that I'm running low on ink on several of the cartridges, even though they're all filled-up & not overfilled. They are not leaking out any ink & the hole I made in each cartridge is sealed. Each ink cartridge has a red light that stays lit when full & blinks slowly when it's getting low & blinks fast when the ink is gone. The photo cyan cartridge blinks fast but ink is pesent. I had to push & hold down the "STOP/RESET" button about 10 sec. to get the printer to print again. Is it possible that the aftermarket ink refill is not compatable with Canon cartridges? I called Canon tech. support & they wouldn't help unless the printer was under warranty & directed me to their website for help instead, which wasn't helpful. Either I purchase original Canon cartridges, refilled cartridges from a reputable supplier or get another printer (extended warranty frm the store I bought the printer from). Plase help! I'm counting on your honest expertise to resolve this problem. Thank you for your time & help in this matter!!
Hi, I have the same printer. There is no such thing as a special chemical added to the ink. The cartridge has a memory chip and remembers the number of droplets used by each cartridge. This is Canon's way of getting you to buy THEIR INK at outrageous prices. You need to reset the ink level indicator on each cartridge that you refill. Then be sure to refill the ink cartridge before it gets too low. Check out a CIS system that are available for this brand of printer. Don't buy into this special bogus ink story.

I fixed the problem by using original Canon ink cartridges and not getting them refilled. Apparently their chemists put a chemical in all of their inks so that only their Canon printers will recognize. It's a guarded trade secret that no one else knows about, unless it was analized. Other ink manufacturers produce ink that looks exactly as Canon ink, but that's where the similiarities end.
