Alternatives to the Canon Resetter
- Compatible Chips: Another method to overcome the "out of ink" signal that is sent to the printer due to a spent inkjet cartridge is to replace the chip. Compatible chips are available on request.

- Compatible Cartridges (with chips): Uni-Kit offers compatible or remanufactured Canon CLI-8 and PGI-5 cartridges with new, compatible chips.
- Manual overide procedure: Although this procedure may not work for all Canon printers, it is an option for customers to consider:
- Place the refilled cartridge (with the original "empty" chip) in the printer
- Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to reset the chips.
- The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
- Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
- The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
- Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
- The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
- Continue to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
- Another dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button (for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
- The "Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds
