Refill Instructions For The Refill Of The Canon CLI-551 & PGI-550PGBK Cartridges
The Most Important Changes Of Canon CLI-551 & PGI-550PGBK Printer Cartridges
The previous cartridges the ink of magenta was cartridge rather towards the purple color. Now, magenta is rather optimized towards a reddish color. Also the yellow hue is now much more lemon yellow, while rather an orange yellow used in the previous cartridges.
The sponge in the front Chamber consists of three parts. The lowest layer of the sponge on the outlet is much stronger (poet), thus the refill of the puncture method is complicated. In the latest cartridge as lowest layer described, corresponds to the also quite hard Wick the ink outlet in the previous cartridge. In fact, it was so before 3 porous parts.
Because of the higher capillary force of the smaller pores in a dense sponge, the ink flows from the less dense to the denser sponge. Therefore must be careful in the composition of refill ink to viscosity (flow property). Otherwise too little ink can pass through and destroy the printhead nozzles. Therefore, you should use only specially tuned and compatible Canon CLI-551 & PGI-550PGBK ink . We offer this course.
The foam board is now slightly longer than before, with a syringe and 50 mm Knaüle, but goes in the free ink Chamber without sponge.
When purchasing a printer from PrinterHall.com are now special Setup cartridges included. These cartridges must be used during the initial start-up of the printer. The printer accepts only these Setup cartridges for the first time. So Canon wants to forestall especially the ebay dealers, sold new printer with compatible printer cartridges , which enclosed original cartridges then offered.
The chip on each cartridge now consists of a thin film and is welded on four points with the cartridge. A change of the chip is therefore not possible, since this remove destroyed by the will. A simple change of the chip is no longer possible.
On each cartridge an orange clip is attached, now on the cartridge outlet dier again can be used. You can use this very well to the refill the cartridges, so when the refill no ink from the outlet runs.
