I know I broke the official procedure, but it happened several times the color carts were empty one after the other (IMO changing a cart uses much more ink than another printer).In my experience with the Maxify, those ARCs won’t reset unless they’re declared totally empty by the printer, then the cartridge removed/refilled and reinserted. A partially full cart won’t do. Even a low ink yellow warning isn’t enough to trigger the reset routine. I tried once and it didn’t work.
Maybe other Maxify users here can say otherwise. All those chips seem to come from the same manufacturer so they should perform likewise but, who knows for sure ?
With ARC's you and I handle the carts as Canon prescribes: change them when one goes empty.I too have thought of trying this method with them in the printer but currently have OEMs with AC chips running. Are you saying that if one of the OEM carts with ARC chips show empty you need to fill all of them at that point or can you just refill the "empty" OEM and print until the next one goes empty?
Not being a heavy user I have only filled the OEM's with ARC's once so far and still have about 30% ink left according to the level indicators.
