On my old HP when the printer said it was out of ink if I took out the cartridges and shook there was still ink.

 

Does that work on Canon printers too?  I have a new Pixma printer (3-in-1).

 

Thank you.

You will not find any printer manufacturer that says its ' ok ' to take out a ink cartridge and shake it up since there is still a little left in there and ' call it good '.  Printing with low ink to ' fake the printer out ' could cause 'thicker' ink to  be pushed through the print head to cause subsequent print head issues.  Whether its possible to do would be anyone's guess.  It still simply bad practice on your printer.  Are you more willing to just buy new ink?  Or buy a new print head?  I think that is more the question you have to ask yourself.
