If you are having problems re-filling your cartridges or are just plain tired of the cost of these things take a look at CISS for your printer.

It may mean you NEVER have to buy another cartridge.

These devices are BULK INK TANKS. (don't let that fool you into thinking they take up a lot of space)

A client of mine had heard about them so when he asked me to get him one I got TWO one for me as well.

It was very easy to install.
It already had about the equivalent of 10 of each cartridge worth of ink installed and I paid less than the price of one full set of cartridges for the whole thing.

I got mine from EBAY and is you search for CISS and then your printer brand you might find one available for your printer too.

As you can see from the link below they don't take up a lot of space and in most cases can be placed on either side of the printer. Mine is on the right hand side.

For those in the UK
here is a suitable source
They do ship elsewhere and as I said I got mine from EBAY.

After 200 pages so far I have had no issues apart from a small mistake by me with regards the amount of loose pipe I had in the printer that took me about 5 seconds to fix. Also check that when you put the lid down on your printer it is not going to pinch the pipes (mine had a small area that seems designed to be cut out (CX4450) right where the pipes were supposed to come out and I took a dremel and just eased the path for the pipes. (don't do that if your printer is new or under warranty ! (unless you don't mind)

They are not available for ALL printers but it is worth checking as the cost savings are TREMENDOUS !

OR as an alternative if you don't feel confident making some minor changes to your printer

Read on and see if any applies to you.

Check that you removed the protective tape. some cartridges have two of these pieces of tape. One over the head and possibly one on the contacts to the printer.

If you recently re-filled or had the cartridge refilled or even bought one of the many cheaper replacement cartridges you should read on

Most modern cartridges have an ink level chip built on to them.
Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.

Re-filling them will have no effect

If you are lucky you should be able to find either a
chip resetter around on the INTERNET or maybe even local

OR

Even better empty cartridges that
never need to be reset.
The second option is my preference.

I realise these are not for your specific printer but there are others listed on both those sites as well.

Cheaper cartridge problems have been on the rise recently and that is for ALL makes of printer.
If you try to clean the contacts be VERY careful cleaning contacts and ONLY use isopropynol on a lint free bud or cloth.
Also be very gentle.

I have seen the contacts cleaned and cartridges ruined with other methods of cleaning.
Rubbing too hard can also cause a badly set chip to move making it inoperable.

I don't like full prices replacements either which is why I always provide the links
I usually recommend that people take back any cartridge that does not work right from the get-go.

I don't know of anyone who has had a problem doing that be it a shop refill or otherwise.

No matter if I paid $1 or $100 for a cartridge I would still expect it to work
Hope this gives you the information you need

Canon MP210 Third Party Ink Canon Does Not Work!


When the error message comes up, try pressing the "stop/reset" button and holding it down for at least 5 seconds. This works when I get an error message with compatible cartridges (only my error message says the ink is empty - and I know it isn't)

Canon ink tanks contain a chip allowing the printer to identify genuine ink tanks. You need to buy reasonable quality replacement ink tanks i.e. from (Google) 'Inkjets & Toners'

Hi I Have a Canon IP4500 and have fitted new inks however error message says an ink tank error has occured.Open the printers cover and replace the ink tank on which the ink lamp is off. I Have tried...


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Dear team2,
Code 5200 indicates 'Ink cartridge temperature rise' error occurs. This error commonly happens when cleaning operation is performed. First, please check if there is enough ink in ink tanks. Cleaning with empty ink tank may cause this problem. If you are sure that you have enough ink in ink tanks means that the print head of the printer is faulty and need replacement.
Hope this will be useful for you. Please rate me as Fixya.
