    Can refilling the cartridges really ruin the printer? I read on one site that it is possible to reset the chip on the individual cartridge to disable the tamper proof feature -- how can I do this?

Google is your friend...

1.There are various ways to refill but the most popular or easily recognisable is the Durchstich German method...


2. In terms of the cartridge chips you will need a chip resetter which again can be found by searching... Another popular brand name is "redsetter".


3. Refilling can damage your printer, especially if you disable ink monitoring rather than using a chip resetter, or fail to fill the cartridge properly.

Various things can go wrong like an unsealed air hole allowing an air leak, emptying the ink contents into the printer..

As with all things, your mileage may vary and the most successful refillers are those who read as much as possible on the subject, get the right tools and are patient.

Good luck.

I'm having a problem with the ink magenta on an IP4500 Canon Printer, it's not printing any magenta even with new cartridges and I've done all the maintenance checks!! Help!


there are small metal spring contacts between the cartridge holder and the cartridge itself, these send the signals to the print head via the cartridge holder. Over time, as a print cartridge moves from side to side during printing these flatten out and no longer come into contact with the cartridge. Find the contacts behind your magenta colour cartridge and re-tension the spring metal contacts so they once again contact the metal faces on the cartridge. They maybe hard to find as they will be in the place where the cartridge goes, use the flat copper faces on the cartridge to give you a clue as to the position of the contacts in the holder.

When refilling canon ip4500 cartridge they still show empty


I'm sorry you got that STUPID answer first. The Canon cartridges you use have a chip or small circuit board on the bottom front. You have to either reset that chip or get the reset chips from the place you get your ink. That little chip tells your printer how much ink has been used and once they are empty refilling doesn't help without a new or reset chip.

Pixima i4500 not able to use refilled inks


You can't reset the machine but the place where you buy ink should have the reset chips, or a chip resetter device that will reset the ink carts so you can refill them and use them in your printer.

Canon iP4500 not printing yellow


take the print head with all the cartridges still installed out of the printer. take a soft microfiber cloth and gently wipe the exposed surface on the bottom of the printhead. You should get some ink to wipe off the printhead.. reinstall and retry your printing.

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

Cartridge refill


The printer is made for the ink cartridges to be replaced. Some drill a small hole in the top and fill it for there. Any area of the top,where you can make and cover the hole will work. Yes. I would use that ink.The worst that will happen is that it will be too thick or thin and not print properly. You would know that soon enough.

Dissapearing yellow


I run about 100+ canon printers from s800 up to the new ip4500.
I have met and solved almost every problem I find described on the web. Your problem with the disappearing yellow ink can be only one thing. The ink cartridge has not been sealed after you injected the ink. If there is even the smallest avenue for air to get into the cartridge it will allow the ink to flow very rapidly back out of the cartridge and into the waste ink pads in the bottom of the printer. You won't be able to see a puddle of ink under the printer until much later when you have done many cleanings or installed many leaky cartridges.
