Canon Pixma Pro 100 : Refillable Cartridges.

[Copy link]

Post time: 2015-7-11 18:23:23 |Show all posts
Prior to receiving a Pixma pro 100 which I have just ordered. It is my understanding should I change an OEM empty cartridge, to replace the whole set. At least this is the advice given in this forum. What about the original cartridges that come with a new printer. Does this advice apply when changing an empty cartridge ? Thanks for any clarification.

It has NOTHING to do with this. Those Epson printers use a CIS ( Continuous Ink System ).
They have internally installed containers/tanks that you can externally refill with ink you purchase. Each bottle comes with a specific serial CODE you must enter in the driver so that they are recognized.
You will NEVER see that on a Prosumer Canon Printer.
You can't use a CIS on a CANON anyway. They simply do not do well on CIS ink system.
Only individual carts.
The Domino effect will occur regardless of what carts you use. Colors are used at greatly different rates. SO you will always have one or more colors that are reaching the low point.
If you are buying carts at full prince, then it's obvious you would not want to replace a full set of carts just because one is low right?
So this only applies to those who refill their carts.
One goes low? Reset and refill ALL the carts at once. Then you are starting with 100 full carts and no domino effect. Do that every time and you will never reach the point where the domino effect takes over.
So again:
If you only use new purchased carts then you are forced to insert carts only when each is empty.
If you are refilling, then reset and refill ALL the carts at one.
If you have a second set of carts available, it's even easier. The you can refill the set you remove at a later time.

Your set up carts are identical to any subsequent carts you will buy.
The idea in resetting topping off ALL the carts ( Once you modify them for refilling ) is this!
Your 8 carts will be used up at drastically different rates. Every time you change one cart the printer will initiate an ink purge cycle to insure there is ink flow out of the exit sponge and into the print head. This ink purge is not specific to the color you just changed. It will purge ALL 8 carts.
You will reach a point where you are constantly changing low carts. Then after the ink purge another one will also be low and so on and so on.
So you either have two sets of carts available. One oin the printer and one on standby resetted, filled and ready to go.
The minute you get the low ink warning, you open the printer lid and swop all 8 carts and reinsert 8 filled ones.
You will eliminate the domino effect and you will be able to print a long time before one cart goes to low.
You will also save your waste ink pads from all that waste ink you would be generating using the single cart swop technique.
Once the ink pads are full the printer ceases to work. It would cost you three times as much as you paid for the PRO-100 to get it serviced if you paid about NET $100 for it.
So get ready!!!

I don't quiet understand what do you mean. Are you asking if you can mix the genuine cartridges with OEM? If that's the question, yes but you might experience a bit different print quality than if you would use the whole set (e.g. full set of OEM or Genuine) I've got an Epson printer and I mix OEM cartridges with genuine black cartridge because black is better quality.
