Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
Posted on May 13, 2010
There is no way to reset the chip in the cartridges and almost all MP canon models have problems when you refill the cartridges ..the issue is to try to reset the counter ,the printer itself..but I can tell you that this have almost no chances to work ..The actual solve that you have to keep in target is to find and buy cartridges for it without the counter chip inside..In this way you will be able to refill them and use..
I tell you all that not to disappoint you but just from experience and to not try in vain ..Those pixma MP models are built in this way to avoid use of low quality ink ...and to increase sells on their original products..an I know that if you buy a few times new cartriges ..you practically buy the printer again ..but if you do not find no chip cartridges to fit ..this is the situation..

Our retailers (i.e. Costco, Frys Electronics, Best Buy Canada) always reset the ink cartridge with a special Canon resetter after the cartridge is refilled.
With respect to Canon MP550 color usage during greyscale printing: Unfortunately, with many of the newer inkjet printer models & printer drivers, printing in greyscale actually consumes more color ink than normal draft printing. If you wish to save on color ink, it is suggested to do one of the following as available in your specific printer driver/software:
-Print in Normal - Draft mode (or super draft if available), plain paper.
-Print in Black & White mode only* - Draft mode on plain paper (typically this is the best way to save on ink/printing costs).
-For internet page printing, print using CleanPrint (3rd party software for printing most internet-based content from all major internet browsers. NOTE: not affiliated with Inkjet411):http://www.formatdynamics.com/cleanprint-4-0/
-Keep printer on at all times; power up cycles typically consume large amounts of ink (per Consumer Reports, Aug 2013 issue).
* Most printer models will still consume a small percentage of color ink due to normal ink/printer maintenance, such as between job 'spitting'. The purpose is to ensure the printhead is maintained to avoid clogging.
Regarding Canon 220 or 221 cartridge repurchase or ink cartridge refilling, if you unable to find a retail / refill store close to you and you are trying to cut ink costs, may we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20 (available to US residents only).

With the original chip now
attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to
get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge
now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to
reset the chips.
