How to tell which ink cartridges your CANON PIXMA Printer uses: Open your printer and look at the top of the ink cartridges. The number on the top of each cartridge indicates the chip series.
If you yours reads: cli-221 or pgi-220, and there are 5 cartridges, then this product is for your printer. (see compatible list below)
What you will receive:
5 Empty Virgin OEM Canon Ink Cartridges
CLI-221 Resetter for Cli-221 / Pgi-220 Ink Chips
NOTE: OEM Virgin Chips are original Canon chips still on the used, empty, original Canon Ink Cartridges, as you can see in the pictures. The picture is a sample of the cartridges you will receive.
The chips on these cartridges have already been reset. You can pull them off these cartridges, (I do this with my fingernails. Place your fingernail under the bottom of the chip and lift. It should come right up, but the one little knob of plastic will continue to hold it and you need to simply twist it till it releases. Take a minute.)
Then take the chip add a little double stick tape to the back of it, and put it onto a compatible cartridge or you may want to glue it onto a set of refillable cartridges designed to be refilled over and over again.
Make sure you match each chip color to the right color cart. Colors are not interchangeable and your printer will not recognize the cart if you have the wrong color in the wrong sequence.
We sell refillable cartridges, check out eCRATER store for these.

Why do I need a Chip Resetter?
Answer: All Canon Pixma Printers come with Ink Cartridges, which have a small circuit board chip on them. This chip tell the printer that the cartridge is a Canon Cart, and continues to monitor how much ink is in the Cartridge, so you always know how much ink you have left. It then tells the printer when the cartridge is empty. Once the ink cartridge is empty, the chip is spent. Even if you refill the cartridge with ink, the chip will no longer read the ink level and it will tell the printer that the ink cartridge is empty. The only way you can refill a cartridge and get the printer to recognize it as full, is if you reset the chip. So if you want to save over 90% on ink costs, you need to have a chip resetters.
I have been over-riding or forcing my printer to print with my refilled cartridges, can I use this resetter on these chips so the ink monitor will start telling me how much ink I have left?
Answer: No. If you have been forcing your printer to print, you have blown the original chips on your ink cartridges. You will need new OEM Canon Chips to get your print monitor to respond, and these can be reset by our resetters.
Can I use Canon original ink cartridges as well as non-oem, re-manufactured or other compatible cartridges with this Chip Resetter simultaneously?
Answer: Yes, original and compatible cartridges can be used in any combination. However you need to be aware that not all compatible chips are resettable. Some chips are one time chips only.
Does the product come with easy to read instructions? Answer: Watch a video on how to use this resetter, go to our blog and scroll to the bottom. http://www.inkjetreset.blogspot.com
Will the cartridges be emptied completely or – like with other systems – will a certain amount of ink remain in the tank that I have to discard?
Answer: Yes! The cartridges will be emptied completely, just like original cartridges.
Do I need a separate chip for each cartridge?
Answer: Yes, you need an original chip for every different color cartridge. The chips can be new or used, or from the original cartridges.
Do I have to change the settings of my printer or my printer software (printer drivers)?
Answer: No. All settings remain unchanged.
What happens to the manufacturer’s warranty if I use this Chip Resetter?
Answer: The manufacturer’s warranty remains intact.
If only 2 to 3 original cartridges of my printer are empty, can I exchange the empty ones with compatible cartridges and leave the original ones in its place?
Is the system compatible with Windows Vista?
Answer: Yes. Our chip resetter will work with all versions of Windows, all Operating systems including MAC OS
My question is what exactly do I need do in order to get this to work and is there a limited amount of times that I can reset each tank.
Answer: This resetter is really easy to use. If you have an original Canon Cartridge with the chip still attached, you simply place the cartridge with the chip facing bottom (like when you put it into your printer) and press it into place. The unit will flash an internal, steady led light when the chip has been reset - it takes about 5 seconds. Watch a video on how to use this resetter, go to our blog and scroll to the bottom. http://www.inkjetreset.blogspot.com
You do exactly the same thing if you have a remanufactured or compatible cart to which you have attached a chip.
There is no limit to how many times you can reset the chip on any tank or how many times you can refill it. I have spoken to some people who have had their canon printers for years and still continue to refill the original ink cartridges.
As you know, it is only recently that Canon has added chips to their printers, so that is why a resetter now is important to have. Especially if you have a multifunction printer which includes a fax machine, because it will not print out the faxes automatically if the chip in your cartridge has not been reset.
Will refilling my inkjet cartridge void the manufacturer's warranty on my printer?
Answer: No. Refilling your inkjet cartridge does not tamper with your printer in any way, and therefore does not effect your warranty. Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act, the consumer is allowed the right to choose any consumable they desire for their printer, and allowed to make any repairs to the printer cartridge they deem necessary. This allows for the use of refill kits and compatible cartridges.
