Now that you’ve gone to the expense of getting OEM, I wouldn’t waste this opportunity of getting the refilling correct and having clog and trouble free printing.
Just empty your cyan cart of the existing ink then rinse with water, then with W5 cleaner, and finish off the last rinse with a little alcohol.
The chances of you experiencing Yello Gello with this rinsing method will be minimised to zero, beside Yello Gello is not a fatal condition and is easy reversible by switching back to OEM ink for a short while.
I’m with you on this one @palombian, because I intend switching to these 56 inks too with my Maxify, starting with the large black cart.. But I’ll let you plough the road first this time..
Octoinkjet CLI-42Y did not per your report.
Flushing the cartridge with water alone was reported to set up the Gello by mikling and you. It was then presumed that the water in any ink would precipitate Gello. Your claim that your ink does not lead to Gello flies in the face of the current presumption.
People have been refilling opaque cartridges using weight for years, including some with the 25x cartridges. Yet no reports on the forum. No one has yet commented on other forums reporting the Gello in the 25x or other ChromaLife+ ink cartridge (except, of course, the CLI-42Y).
So what are we to believe, lack of real world data or one guy's post (mikling) on 25x cartridges that no one has verified?
The whole point of this review is to caution on jumping to conclusions and to examine even long held beliefs not supported by verifiable or replicated results.
Having said all this, the Fates are considering making Pal and PeterBJ's fears come true just to mess with me!
Do you need some oil for the hinges on your wallet to get it open?
Yes I know, I can’t quite believe it myself.. (More oil needed) but just goes to show this old fart can change his habits.. Canon profits soar..!Oh my.,. @The Hat buying Canon OEM ink !. I never thought I'd see the day..
Exotic filament be dammed, I couldn’t afford to buy that stuff at those prices, I’m not made of money, despite my pending exotic purchase of OEM inks… and oiled Hinges..What's next .. maybe trying exotic kinds of filaments ?.
