    Are some cartridges and inks interchangeable

    Wondering if the Canon ClI221 and PGI 220 cartridges and ink would safely work in my Canon MG 6821 which uses CLI271&PGI270. They appear to be compatible in size but wonder if the printer would recognize them and function, if so would the 221&220 inks create issues. Just curious as I have a...

    Confused on purchase of ARC for my Pixma MG6821 and TS 6020

    Researching refillable ARC carts and need help to determine if all CLi271 and PGi 270 cartridges are the same and will work in all Canon printers that use these cartridges. Some sellers of the refillable ARC CLi270 and PGi 270 specify specific Canon printer models or state their carts will work...

    Help removing printer head on Canon MG6821

    My MFG6221 Canon printer has stopped printing magenta and yellow and most likely requires cleaning/flushing resulting from lack of color printing; however the head is installed in a way I am unfamiliar with and unlike all my past Canon printers. Wondering if anyone is familiar with this printer...

    Canon ARC cartridges questions

    Many thanks for the response and input Print Addict. Do I understand correctly that the replacement of an OEM Canon cartridge with the ARC cartridge need not wait for the red X but can be done an any time - for example at the yellow warning or before! One the other hand one must wait for the red...

    Canon ARC cartridges questions

    Purchased Canon CLI271&PGI270 refillable ARC cartridges for my MG6821 printer. I have a few questions for those that have experience using them: When is the most optimum time to install them - at the first empty warning or at the red X on my MG6821 model. Should they be filled before the...

    Canon CLI 271 resetter issue

    Getting back to resetting after refilling another forum member posted the following..."My recommendation and it still stands is that you use the aftermarket refills with ARC chips on these models. I use them myself and they work very well. Additionally on the CLI-270 /271 I have found that the...

    Canon CLI 271 resetter issue

    I think the Hat has a good point - of the two genuine Canon cartridges I have refilled one filled without issues and the other began leaking profusely out of the outlet immediately upon filling. Possibly a defect or a Canon failure by design?

    Canon CLI 271 resetter issue

    Thanks Ink Stained Fingers. Excellent examples - so one must assume that when forum members refer to Canon OEM cartridges they mean genuine Canon unless otherwise qualified and not competing compatibles.

    Canon CLI 271 resetter issue

    Further comments on OEM cartridges - when I go to Walmart and purchase Canon cartridges off the shelf are these manufactured by Canon or by a company that manufactures the cartridges for Canon and so labels them?

    Canon CLI 271 resetter issue

    There is some confusion regarding the term OEM (at least in my mind). When discussing Canon cartridges one often encounters forum members referring to cartridges manufactured and sold by the Canon company while others use the term to refer to products that are manufactured by other unrelated...

    Canon CLI 271 resetter issue

    Thanks for the input RWL - wondering if your resetter was for the CLI270/271 cartridges? If so could you possibly provide from where you obtained it. TX Frank

    General color ink depletion question

    Somewhat of a novice when it comes to printer operation. Using a Canon MG6821 with CLI 271 color carts and wonder why these carts are needing refill or replacement often when I exclusively choose the standard grayscale print selection when printing and almost never use color printing. Is the...

    Canon CLI 271 resetter issue

    Shortly after buying my Canon MG6821 printer I research online for a resetter - at that time (June 2107) limited products were available. I found one on eBay sold be a CHinese seller named zhiyan2. The carts that came with the printer lasted for several months and the Canon OEM replacements are...
