Why can't you just replace the color cartridges with colored water. The sensor will know its full, What's the diff?
The cartridge must be reset to 0 pages when refilled with INK.
I have a Canon, bought cartridges and a USB resetter on Ebay, and can refill and reset my cartridges till they wear out..
A resetter? hmm, that's an interesting approach. That's certainly an option, or I could get a parallel to USB converter and hook up my old laser printer. I'm not impressed with this printer, and there are a lot on craigslist for $20. Not Canon's or Kodak's, just Brother's. Thank you for your help.
