    Anyone know, what I must do, to “unlock” my cartidge ?

  8. Darren says:

    There is nothing you can do. The copper part on the cartridge is like a time fuse, it dies. When this happens the printer will not recognize the cartridges. It is time for new ones. sorry for the let down but your refill was a waste.

  15. Moe Tun Wai says:

    there’s a great secret here. And It’s just a simple one. ” You must not let those cartridges out of ink to a bottom line of the cartridges because those above errors become from it” If one of 3colours become very few in amount.. You have to refill it as a procedure mention below..
    (1) open the scanner to drive cartridges to remove position
    (2) un-plug the printer
    (3) take out cartridges & refill
    (4) let the ink cartridges for 15mins for ink stable
    (5) reinstall them & re-plug power cord
    there’s nothing to happen those errors…

    PIXMA200 – not working this method. Counter is inside cartridge chip. Printer is reading information from this. No way to change counter without resetter kit.
