    Good Day All, I have a question about using refilled carts AFTER the setup carts that came with the printer are exhausted. Is there anything that needs to be done to the print head before loading the refilled carts? Like flushing, etc? Or is it ok to just load and go?

    Thanks!!

    No problems except for yellow cartridges. Be sure that one is thoroughly flushed of all OEM ink prior to refilling to prevent the dreaded 'yellow jello' problem.

    If you have any issues with the CLI 42 refills just try the compatible instead. We always found the compatible ink was just as good as refills for this type of Canon cartridges ...and is usually cheaper than the refilled cartridges. Compatibles are just generic brands rather than refilling OEMs

    :bow The best carts for refilling are always OEM, and all dough aftermarket carts are a great alternative for saving money, you still need to be careful not to get the cheapest carts because their inks are universal and are totally rubbish.. (Coloured water)

    Only purchase from known ink suppliers and beware of the Free P&P artists, that’s a dead giveaway...:eek:
