Re: ink cartridge
You basically got scammed on that purchase. The important detail they didn't tell you was that the chips need to be reset on these cartridges. By resetting the chip you are telling the printer it has a full cartridge. Once the chip thinks the cartridge is empty it will cease to print. That's why you got the cartridge to print some and then it quit. You don't necessarily have to buy original Canon cartridges, but you do need to make sure you are buying refills with reset chips. I recommend Cartridge World for refills. I would stay away from internet sellers because they pull stuff like this on you and give you terrible ink.

Hello, be careful, because all recent hp cartridges have a chip which even though you've refilled the cartridge, the chip 'tells' the printer logic that it's empty. And it's not possible to reset the chip if it's a genuine hp cartridge. You can buy a chip resetter tool but they only work on non-genuine hp cartridges. That's not all though,;in order to refill the hp cartridges successfully you need a vacuum filler, and it's nigh-on impossible to do it at home. If you want to save money and not end up with nasty ink everywhere, buy a cheap copy of a hp cartridge. I know they're available on Amazon, but the place I can recommend is
inkrite (I'm assuming you're in the UK due to your spelling of colour) This isn't an ad for them; I personally used their products and have done for years.
A number of printers simply will NOT work with "Refilled" ink cartridges. This is because some have a "Chip" inside them that will not allow this to be done. They want you to buy their ink.. and buy a new cartridge each time... SOME places that refill them are able to reset the chip. However "They" have us all by the "Goolies" and as much as you may hate it the best way is to buy a new recommended cartridges. Sux huh?
Ink cartriges have chips in them, if the printer does so many prints without getting the "I've had a new Original Cart fitted" it will stop untill,you give it one, regardless if there ink or not
Im afraid it doesn't care that you only need to use the colour cartridge, it is designed to cost you money and make money for lexmark not refillers.
Welcome to our modern world, manufactures make the ink hard to recycle by incorperation of expensive chips that makes refillers, unable to make a easy dollar, because if that want to make cartridges that work they must also fit the expensive chip.
All empty cartridges have a little ink left in them because getting air in ink lines is not a thing we want.
You should take it back and exchange it or read on below.
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 resetter around on the internet 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
hi.make sure there is no tape or dirt on cartridge chip contacts.if still no joy trying iserting one cartridge at a time then installing.say insert black then will say others carts missing red blue yellow.keep going till they are installed.sometimes helps.make sure the carts have lastest chips installed version 5 or higher if compatable cart.should not be a problem if bought from epson.eg t711 etc will fit but must be new carts with new chip otherwise may not accept.i belive the sx100 has something like t811 or something.this may be the new chip.otherwise may just be a faulty chip on the cart.you can get refillable carts or ciss system on ebay you put in your own ink.they are brillant.cart chips reset when low ink.hope this may help.
They cut costs on Epson compatible cartridges by using low quality ink and chips or not resetting the chips at all. Sounds like you got cartridges that the chips were not reset on so your printer thinks all the cartridges are empty. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would never recommend purchasing compatible Epson cartridges from anyone. I would buy refills of Epson brand cartridges and make sure the seller reset the chips.
When one or more ink cartridges are empty, for example, Black, the LCD
shows “Ink Empty Black” and “Open Cover.” Close the printer’s document
support and the document tray.
Lift the top cover to the open position until it locks securely into place.
Pull the ink cartridge hook toward the front of the printer and remove
the color ink cartridge displayed on the LCD. Place the cartridge in a
plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
Open the new ink cartridge bag for the color shown on the LCD and
remove the new ink cartridge. The cartridge cover may come off when you
open the bag. This is not uncommon and will not damage the cartridge.
Each color has its own correct position that is clearly labeled and
color coded inside the printer. Keep the ink cartridge in an upright
position when you insert it into slot. It will only fit in the correct
direction. Press down on the ink cartridge until the hook snaps over
If you replaced an ink cartridge while “Near Empty” was displayed on
the LCD, the LCD may ask you to verify that the replacement cartridge
was brand new one. Example: “Did You Change Black? 1.Yes 2.No.” For
each new cartridge you installed, press 1 on the dial pad to
automatically reset the ink dot counter for that color. If the ink
cartridge you installed is not a brand-new one, select 2.
The ink detection is a critical function of the printer.
Ink actually acts as a lubricant for the heads, and running (Printing) without ink is equavalent to driving a car without oil.
I.E. It will seize eventually....
Hopefully you didn't print much without the ink, and your heads are still in good shape...
Here is a chip reset procedure....
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.
The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
Continue to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
Another dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button (for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
The "Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds
The printer determines the amount of ink left in the cartridge by counting the number of ink "shots" when printing, head cleaning etc. This information is stored in the "chip" on the cartridge. Thus, it is not an actual measurement of the ink left, but an estimate calculated by subtracting the total shots from the original full ink quantity. This estimate can sometimes be grossly in error, usually due to a cartridge replacement not being carried out correctly. However, for all four cartridges to be suddenly out of ink is odd. The cheapest way to check this out is to buy a chip resetter on e-bay (currently one for sale at £3.25). Reset all your cartridges to "full", and see if the printer will now recognise them as full. If so, you can buy a new set OK. If the printer still says the cartridges are empty, post a new comment to this effect and we can provide further help.
