Part III - The PG-40 /CL-41 Dilemma (CANON / HP)


Okay, firstly you need to understand Part III before continuing.  If you think that refilling the individual  cartridges consistently will be cumbersome, this may be a good alternative for you then.

Points to note.

1. You have to use the Original Cartridge for the system to work as the printhead is built in.

2. Eventually the printhead will wear out as it was not designed for durability.

3. You need to manually override the counter via the paper feed button.




Some Q&A Before We Begin

I can get a similar 'system' from the stores
Yes you can, but if you understand Part III most probably they are using refurbished cartridges for their sets.

I can get the 'System' cheaper
It may be possible due to;
a. Refurbished Cartridges
b. Lower Grade Ink
c. Less Ink - e.g 50m or 75ml sets

Can you guarantee the printhead condition
Sorry, I can't.  As explained, the printhead was not designed for durability.

Are you making these up? The salesman never said anything like the above.
Well, it's just sales to them.  Take your Cash first and solve problem later.  I prefer my customers to know upfront what they are buying.

They claim "Buy 1 for U Whole life"
That may not be accurately true for PG-40 /CL-41 Systems.  The system YES, BUT you will have to replace the cartridges when it wears out eventually.

All this is too complicated for me
Sadly then it either sticking back to Original Cartridges OR manually refill them when required.
If you just need the refill ink, I can get it for you.
