    Source for non ARC Canon refillable carts?

    The carts I have used were new, never filled, empty aftermarket carts, not ones that were filled with ink. Just like what you linked. Unless I missed something here, I'm confused about buying empty used Canon OEM carts. I don't know how long the sponges were empty or almost empty.

    Source for non ARC Canon refillable carts?

    Or ARC carts that do read ink levels which I now understand most do not. Which I found out the hard way thru Ink Owl in spite of what their tech told me.. The specific carts I'm looking for are refillable PGI-5(BK) and CLI-8(C,M,Y,BK). I did find these...

    Canon 3rd party carts not showing empty

    As in you can't refill or reset Canon OEM carts. I never bought any. As I stated, I never had "auto" reset carts before. If I knew that I probably wouldn't of ordered them and looked elsewhere. I've dealt with Ink Owl before with no issues, but only for ink. BTW, I did on the offer.

    Canon 3rd party carts not showing empty

    Printer is new, the model is 15 years old. I have been treating it like gold. Understood about letting carts going dry, but that was due to the lack of indication to ink levels which wasn't my fault. I was just going to find another source for empty carts. I thought Canon OEM carts are only...

    Canon ink cart cross reference

    I came across this list of printer carts and the models they use. It came from Inkjet411.com My question is; is this in chronological order of the cart series? It appears it is, but couple may be out of order (Canon 6 for example).

    Looking to replace a much older Canon printer; current or older model?

    Knock on wood, but refilling I have been fairly successful with it Both with my old i560 and now with the 4300. It's the printheads where the problem is. I have a 2nd set of carts all reset & refilled I just swap out with the carts inside the machine as needed tiring not to run the carts dry. ;)

    Looking to replace a much older Canon printer; current or older model?

    May be I should ask, of the recent models (current or 1 generation previous models), what models or series of models have resettable carts if any?

    Looking to replace a much older Canon printer; current or older model?

    That's the idea, what's wrong with the item, especially when a pattern develops, not what's right which the manufacture goes out of his way to advertise. I never really considered the 4300 "premium". :idunno
