Refill ink cartridge problem
Been retired and on a fixed low income and printer companies were robbing us with their ink.
I have been refilling my Lexmark ink cartridges for about 10 years or more buying new ones when.  I would go a couple months with out using my printer and the ink would dry on the print head.
Living in a small town where we depend on Walmart who stopped stocking Lexmark cartridges.
I bought a Canon model MG2920 is there a way to reset the Canon printer to use my refilled cartridge?

the cartridge is actually the bit that would need resetting. they have a chip that tracks the usage, not the printer. a lot of modern printers aren't terribly keen on home filled cartridges (for obvious reasons). you might have some luck googling the exact make/model of cartridge and "how to refill" or something of that nature.

I have been using canon printers for ages and always acquire refillable cartridges. These are not expensive and are filled with cheaply available printer ink of the correct colours. When the cartridge gets low the action of removing it to refill it re-sets its chip so the printer itself is convinced it is full.
