HI EVERYBODY.
I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY CANON PIXMA IP1800 PRINTER THAT REFUSES TO WORK.
I BOUGHT THE RE-FILLED CARTRIDGE FROM SHOP. AFTER USING A SHORT WHILE, ERROR MESSAGE CAME SAYING
THAT THERE WAS NO MORE INK IN IT. PRINTER WON'T WORK.
I HAVE CHECKED THROUGH THE INTERNET AND UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS BECAUSE OF THE CHIP ATTACHED TO
THE CARTRIDGE. THE CHIP REMEMBERS THE NUMBER OF PAPER PRINTED SINCE THE PREVIOUS REFILLING. WHEN
THE PRE-SET NO. OF PAPER IS PRINTED, IT ASSUMES THAT THE CARTRIDGE CONTAINS NO MORE INK AND SO THE
CLIP STARTED TO GIVE THE "NO INK" MESSAGE AND STOPS WORKING.
I BELIEVE IT IS POSSIBLE TO DO "RESET" AND TO MAKE THE CHIP REALIZE THAT THE CARTRIDGE IS NOT "INK-LESS":
CAN ANYBODY TELL ME HOW TO DO THE RESET?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE.

Using refilled generic cartriges is not recommended and they can cause problems such as yours.

It is best to purchase products recommended by canon.

Other than, that I have no clue how to re-set a printer cartidge chip.
