Canon all in one printer refill ink cartridges

I purchased jet tec refill kits for black and colour for my canon printer. I refilled the ink cartridges according to their instructions, however, only the pink and sometimes yellow ink works. I got no black or cyan. I called canon and they tell me that I have to purchase brand new ink cartridges, their ink cartridges are none refillable. I called Jet tec and they tell me to soak my cartridges with the cleaning solution and then if that doesn't work to reset my printer. I've tried all this and nothing seems to be working. Do you have any suggestions?

Re: Canon all in one printer refill ink cartridges

I have just filled my mx 310 with the jet tec refills as instructed....but do not insert the rubber bungs...instead put some celotape over the filling holes... then with a needle...pierce the celotape where the hole is( pin *****).... this set up is now able to breathe as originally designrd. Mine prints fine now this has been done (trial and error), but i might try better quality ink next fill. Its also wise to use glossy paper 230gsm or over for good results.

Canon pixma mx350 printer ink level shows exclamation mark about the icon

If you are using an ink refill kit (or buying ink that has been refilled, the ink level will not show accurately) also, if refilling yourself you must clean the pint area of the cartridge with alcohol before installation, and then run the 'clean print head' tools from you Canon menus.

I recommend buying Canon ink, at least for 1 in 4 refills to reset your ink levels.

How can i refill my mp540 cartridge?

First, purchase these refillable ink cartridges from a third party company: After that, head to staples or go online to order the ink. The cartiridges that come with the Canon or the retail ones may or may not work because of the microchip inside of each cartridge. You can try to refill those by removing the label off the top, and you should see a hole or two to poke a needle into. Once you purchase a refill kit it should come with something to inject the ink with.

Just refill our black ink for canon pixma ip 1200 and it gives out lines in beetwen image. How can i fix? it says it needs to unclogged but i kept cleaning through maintenance tab and result is still the...

Canon recommends genuine canon ink jet cartridges. If you bought a remanufactured ink jet cartridge and it did this, I would return it immediately.

But, since you filled it yourself, there's no recourse with the ink company, I don't believe.

Even if you were successful with refilling, they can only be refilled 2 or 3 times at best.

Black and Colour Ink Low Messages - Canon MP180

You have to look online for the canon tool to reset the ink counters. When you refill these cartridges you have to run this program in order to re-use the cartridges.

I want to refill the ink cartridges (black 30 - colour31) do I do it?

You can't refill these cartridges yourself. Your printer remembers the serial numbers encoded in the electronics of the cartridges that have been in the printer. If your printer sees the same serial number in a row it will kick out the cartridge. HP printers don't use this same system to reject cartridges. I recommend Cartridge World refills or refills from anywhere that has a high turnover of these cartridges so you don't get one with the same serial number.

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.

Refilled ink cartridges not recognizby printer.

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.

I want to refill the ink cartridges (black 30 - colour31) do I do it?

Hi there,
Filling is easy - but messy. I use No 40 cartridges for my pixma ip2200.
For the black cartridge, carefully remove the label. Drill a 2-3mm dia. hole in the depression in the top. With a syringe fill, using about 10ml of black ink. Plug the hole with a suitable bung and away you go!
You will however lose the ink level indication as it is not a genuine cartridge - but that is unreliable anyway.
Don't refill more than a couple of times as the foam inside the case eventually perishes and all the ink runs out.

Whilst the cartridge is out of the printer give the jets a wipe with a wet tissue. This is usually quite effective in removing dried on ink.

You can do the same with 41 colour cartridges but it is a bit more tricky locating the correct place to drill.

Good luck
