Take the ink cartridge off the printer; fill a pot with water (about 2 to 3") and heat the water until it starts boiling. Hold the cartridge above the pot (about 8",carefully , don't get burned!) with the ink jet facing the steam, gently ,blot the inkjet with a paper towel, repeat the operation as needed, and that should loosen up the ink that has solidified on the print head. Good luck, it worked for me.

Canon mp470 can't accept refilled cartridge


Canon mp470 is an excellent printer.I will always recommend using original catridges in your printer.Refilled catridges are not accepted by the manufacturers.Let me tell you i used to work for HP in the beginning of my carreer. I have seen that HP refused to accept refilled catriges. hence i would reccommend you take a cotton cloth ,remove the catridges from the printer.Clean the print heads using that cotton cloth n then reinstall the catridges back .......
Lets see if this resolves the issue

Black printer ink not working as well at 100%


There are several possible issues with the refilled cartridges. Nozzle clogging; dirty contacts; static electricity transfered from your bare hands to contacts on cartridge damaging the circuitry; and more.

Clean the contacts on the cartridge using a pencil eraser. If that doesn't help, you should get a new cartridge and see if it fixes the problem.

Error 1203.


It's mean your catridges overflow even from brand new catridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the catridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the catridge. I have the same problem which I think lexmark have a proble and overlook.
Solution:
I use the klennex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
The refill ink work very well if you let it sit 24 hrs. Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the catridges a couple times then run clean catridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of klennex on those holder contact panel.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.
