Question about Canon PIXMA MP460 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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....
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
