I'm told by my local cartridge dealer that MP160 cartridges only work once,because they are "chipped" to prevent use more than once.So you have to buy new cartridges every time.
Well done,Canon,and so you should be!!

I refilled the black ink cartridge, and when I put it back in the printer, the printer says ERROR 13 meaning the ink level cannot be detected. Its essentially a brand new cartridge. What do I do? Ive tried...


It is not possible to refill the original Canon cartridges. The ink level indicator is integrated in the chip on the cartridge. When refilling, the information on the chip will not be changed and keeps giving the info that the cartridge is empty.

How would i refill my printer cartridge. which whole i have to use for refill. could u please describe or show me the video


Printer cartridges have special inks and you cannot just put any ink into the cartridge.
When you purchase inkjet refills these come with cartridge filling instructions for your model printer cartridge.

My lexmark X5410 will not accept the black and colored refilled ink cartridges from walgreens. It keeps reporting that the right cartridge is missing.


If you have refilled the cartridges 28 and 29, it's pretty normal that your printer won't print. Those cartridges are not for refill (they can be refilled, but won't work once the printer says they are empty). If you have refilled a 28A and 29A and it doesn't recognize the one of the cartridges, try removing them and clean the electric contacts with a dry cloth. Put them back in. If that doesn't help, I suggest you buy a new cartridge.

How to refill the cartridge


This printer takes the HP 940 cartridge. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we cannot refill these cartridges yet. There is a chip on the cartridge that estimates the ink levels and shuts off the cartridge when it thinks it is empty. Any refills you find are either violating patent law with replacement chips or they are telling you to take the chip off your old cartridge and put it on the new one. This second scenario is a rip off because once the chip says the cartridge is empty, no matter how much ink is left, it will refuse to print.

Refilled cartridge , printer says right cartridge incorrect


Lexmark builds intelligence into their cartridges and printers to prevent the use of refilled cartridges.

Lexmark has never approved the use of anyone else's ink for their printers primarily because there is no way to prove the quality of the ink.

Please purchase a Lexmark cartridge.

I cannot get my printer to recognize my refilled ink cartridges


“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

you can simply refill the 818 cartridge first you take the cartridge and then you must clean outer surface of the cartridge with a cotton cloth then fill the ink with a cyringe before you put into the carriege holder you must clean the inside path of the carriege holder then put it it will work very fast and perfectly.

Lexmark X2600 refill problem


many printer manufacturers put something (a chip?) in the circuit of the cartridge to prevent refilled ones from being recognized by the printer....when the "factory" cartridge is empty, the only way for the printer to see a full cartridge again is by using a "new" factory one, ...i guess it's the big name brands way of making sure you buy "their" ink and not use refulls.
