Question About Printers

Does anyone know how to hack these annoying low ink messages. I'd like to refill cartridges, but keep getting low ink messages even after filling. I know they have a code that the printer responds to, but I'd like to know how to hack the firmware to remove that problem. Tired of getting "low ink" when the thing is still half full. The printer is a canon MP830, and I also have an Hp 2170 I'd like to hack as well. Help

and Thanks

AFAIK, the info about whether the cartridge is low on ink or not is actually calculated by hardware in the cartridge. Short of disassembling the cartridge, I don't think there IS a way to reset it. However, don't take that as gospel.

you can hack them with ease

i cant remember where you get them but you can get a little powered box thing that when you rub it over the chip on the cartrage will reset it to full

ill have a look see if i can find them again

There are kits out there. Depending on what "type" you have, you may have to just live with it.
