I see Jet Tec are about to launch a cart with a chip holder for the
Canon Pixma MP500, Pixma MP800 Pixma iP4200, Pixma iP5200, Pixma
iP5200R, Pixma iP6600D. http://www.yqcomputer.com/
Wonder what the price will be?
Not a lot of good without a new chip. The questions I would raise are how
long is a used chip good for ? what happens when the chip fails if in the
middle of a cart. The answer is for third party manufactures to get a
licence from a maker, we all know that will never happen.
From the "instructions":
"It is important that you monitor the ink level
of your new cartridge to ensure that it does
not run completely dry".
It doesn't say how much important is. It doesn't say how will you monitor
the ink level inside the sponge? Half of the ink is inside the sponge
chamber, and half inside the non sponge chamber.
I think these cartridges are worthless. Much more reliable method, is to
refill the oem ones.
(Remove the number nine from my email address to send me email)
"Canon printers with cartridges that use a chip have been designed
to detect non-genuine Canon products. As a result, the ink level will
no longer be detected. It is important that you monitor the ink level
of your new cartridge to ensure that it does not run completely dry."
I was under impression that cartridges without a chip still work
and work the same way - no ink level monitoring. If so, what exactly
is an advantage of transferring a chip to the non-OEM cartridge?
