@palombian Currently have the ? on the Cyan and Yellow so may well try your suggestion with the "normal" cartridge replacement methodand the aluminium tape, never tried tape on the outlet.

Maxify and Pixma range of printers apparently are designed and manufactured by different divisions inside Canon. So, what applies for Pixmas it doesn't for the Maxifys and vice-versa.
The ARC on the cyan cart of my MB5150 refused to return to full condition after it was declared empty and reinstalled. It has remained in 'unknown' condition for months, but cyan ink continues to flow normally for the time being. I'm curious to know what will happen when the ink control chamber detects that the cyan ink is exhausted. Some kind of error, I suppose,
I think you will get the B504 (If I remember the correct number) error. That freaked me out the first time it happened 😱 but I recovered it by putting in an empty OEM cart with original chip. The printer started up, reported the cart needed changed and parked it for changing. Adding the refilled OEM ARC then resulted in a reset of the chip and the printer worked as normal again.

I recently ran the BK cart dry - pure laziness from my part - without additional error message.
Printhead still OK after refill...

These things are built for office use, maybe they can have some mismanagement.
