I decided to try this on my cannon MP280 all in one printer. It seems to be good quality ink. The ink level light on the printer still registers the ink is out but all the re-manufactured cartridges seem to do the same thing. I have printed 50 pages so far . Now we will see if it prints as many pages as the cannon XL cartridge. You can't beat the cannon XL cartridges for quality.
Update 5/9/2013. This cartridge hasn't given any problem but like i always say time will tell. Well it is empty now and gave me less than half the amount of pages that i get with the genuine cannon XL ink. I won't purchase any more, not cost efficient compared to the cannon ink when you figure pages delivered versus cost.
My Canon Pixima MX340 reports error Check ink U051. The Canon website states that the error code UO51, the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine. I did exactly as you stated in your email. Installed cartridge, clicked OK, went to computer:
1. Open Properties in "Printers" from "Start Bar"-"Settings" on left lower corner. -Open "Advance". 2. Unchecked "Enable advanced printing features" -Apply and close. 3. Hold "Stop" button on (MX340) printer for 10-20 seconds. The "Ran out of ink" message never came on. 4. I only received the ERROR U051, thats the only message I get. I have done these steps several times over and I keep getting the same results. The printer does not recognise this cartridge.
This is the 4th time I have ordered these, both color and black; same company because their prices are much better than anyone else I have looked at. Why switch when you're completely satisfied, right? A note comes with the package stating that your printer may not recognize the remanned cartridge, and your printer will continually give you a message that you're running out of ink; ignore the message. Me....I just keep printing until paper shows up with nothing on it; then I replace the cartridge. I have had no problems and I think the cartridges last just as long as store-bought ones for almost 3x the price! Give it a try. It's worth it to save a lot of money! Quick shipping, too! Love it!
