I wish there were manual-reset chips on compatible cartridges

    After a couple of refills of compatible cartrdiges on my Pixma MG6650 (PGI-550/CLI-551), I wish I could reset the carts manually rather than having to wait for the ink monitor to signal empty and the auto-reset function to trigger. The carts consistently drain faster than the ink level monitoring says, so I have to monitor the cartriges manually (by taking them out of the printer and look at them) to make sure I don't run the printer on empty carts. Which means I have to refill early, and the ink monitor goes out of sync with reality.

    All of them! LOL
    Thus the reason to not use compatibles or refillable on a canon printer. The chips always over report the ink actual Ink levels.

    No real alternative with x51-carts. They're not transparent so no way to inspect ink levels when refilling. And no resetters until this year, even though the carts have been around for three years or so.
