Canon MP 460 re-filled cartridges

Hello smart people,
as I am not one of them, I have just about pulled out my hair trying to solve the problem of the printer not recognizing that I have re-filled the original cartridges. I have now learnt that each cartridge has a chip (so that Canon and others want you to buy their inflated after-market products), but is there any Brainiac out there who might know how to by-pass this obvious rort?? Please help, as soon I will have not much use for the shampoo in the cupboard....

    thanks very much bcbikemn, I will certainly give this a try. I am hoping this works, as it beats paying $80 a pop, for both an original b&w and colour Canon cartridge.

What I've done is buy two ink cartges and then you can fake out the printer by installing them back and forth between the full cart and the empty ones. I like the option of refilling the cartges. What I did was take the cartges out. drill a small hole it the acess hole so I could refill each ink color and reseal the hole up (with a small plug) took a needle and heated it up. to make a small air hole for the ink to be able to get out (breather hole). then set them aside. I then took the two other ink cartges and installed them. faking out the printer to think that it had new cartgrs in it. tried to print some pages then put the filled cartges back into them. Some times you might have to do this a couple of times but once it takes all you do is to make sure that the ink cartges are ALWAYS FULL. I have been running for some time without haveing a problem. I hope this helps

I used color smart for men medium brown on my hair and my french lace human hairpiece, it is too dark and i want to use the light brown but am not sure what to do for both my hair and the hairpiece

Try going with just a shade brighter and redying it. All colorants seem to brighten as they set in. I'd say you can do that, or try getting your hair more sunlight. That will naturally brighten the color.

I have just refilled my ink cartridges and when i try to print it shows that i have to replace the in cartridges!!! can anyone hellp? :(


You have nothing to worry about if it still prints. The printer probably recognizes the cartridge as the one you just ran out of, so its confused. It should work regardless, just ignore the messages. If it doesn't work at all then you might want to take it back to where you got it refilled and take it up with them.

My sim card is not recognized by my fone. what should i do?


Thanks for the question, just start by reseating the sim card, if that does not solve the problem, carefully, very carefully try to pull up the 6 metal pins, so that they would touch properly, or you can try pushing down the sim card on the slot to make sure it touches the pins.

note that the pins can break easily if you pull them up too much.

if that doesn't solve the problem try another sim card.

Best wishes,

Refilled ink cartridges at Walgreens, printer won't recognize

28 and 29 are not meant to be refilled. They can physically be refilled, but they won't work. That is because Lexmark has put in a smart chip that doesn't allow refill.
You need to buy 28A and 29A or 34 and 35, those cartridges can be refilled with no problem.

Error - Paper Output Slot

Same problem with my mp600. Turns out I had a black twisty-tie in it. Must have fallen in from the top and ran through the printer as far as it could but got stuck on the way out. I pulled it out and presto!
