Canon Pixma MX495 INK Review by Des Magowan
Initially found the printer would not recognise the cartridge which was a pain but rang and they told me to hold down the stop button for 10 - 15 seconds and printer rest itself and all ok now. Good customer service and a lot of patience on Printer Ink's part as I am not that au fait with printers! (Posted on 19/09/2016)

Installation steps of Canon CL546 ink cartridges

These compatible Canon ink cartridges are very easy to install and to work with. It is normal to receive an error message such as “non-original cartridge detected” on installing them for a first time on your Canon Pixma printer. You can simply take out the cartridges and reinstall those. Check if the message continues. If yes then the another solution is to press the stop button for 5 seconds. The stop button has a triangle inside a circle. On pressing that you turn the printer’s cartridge recognition facility off, which lead you to easily use these unrecognised cartridges.

Refilling guidelines of Canon CL546XL ink cartridge

  1. Use a protective pair of gloves for safety purpose.
  2. Do not refill the old cartridge which is placed idly for a longer period.
  3. You will get the best printing performance if you refill the cartridge before the ink gets completely over.
  4. Use plastic cover/newspaper/soak paper sheet/paper towels to cover the surface.
  5. Properly check the ink chamber before refilling each.
  6. If you are not sure what ink to be refilled in the particular chamber, check it with the help of inserting a toothpicks into the each chamber.
  7. Do not overfill the ink cartridge. Try to fill it to a maximum 80% of recommended capacity.
  8. Draw 1ml to 2ml ink back from the cartridge if it gets overfilled from the declared capacity.
  9. Glue the label back on refilled Canon CL546 ink cartridge properly.
  10. Keep the refilled cartridges safe and away from the children.
  11. After installation, if your machine indicates the low ink cartridge message, press the RESUME/STOP/RESET button on your printer for 5 to 15 seconds. It will prompt the printer to automatically start printing.
    (Reason for getting a “Low ink cartridge message” - Your Canon machine has an internal memory. This memory remembers Canon CL-546 cartridge serial numbers and for this reason, your recently refilled cartridge is stated to be empty. The memory usually remembers the last 4 cartridges. If you are inserting 4 different Canon ink cartridge and after that, the recently refilled one the printer should recognise and accept it.)
  12. Run 1 or 2 cleaning cycles after installing the ink cartridge.

How to refill the Canon CL546XL cartridge?

Cartridge refilling is a very simple task. You just need to have the right supplies with you and know the right procedure. If you have run out of your Canon cartridge, here is how you can refill it.

Required tools and supplies:
  • Coloured inks: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow (5ml each for CL546XL size of the cartridge and 3ml for CL546)
  • Small drill
  • Syringe with a needle
  • Cutter or putty knife
  • Roll of paper towels
  • Scotch tape
  • Table or desk
When you are ready with all your tools and supplies, follow these steps to refill this Canon CL546 ink cartridges:
  1. Clean the platform you are going to work on and put a plastic cover/newspaper/soak paper sheet to prevent any ink stain.
  2. Fold the paper towel half twice and work over it to catch the leakage ink.
  3. Take the empty ink cartridge and place ink cartridge on it.
  4. Remove the label on the top of the empty cartridge with the help of cutter knife.
  5. Locate the filling holes. There are 3 holes beneath the label. They are located in a triangular position. The one single filler opening on top is for Magenta colour. The right opening below is for Yellow colour and the last one in the bottom left side is for Cyan colour ink.
  6. Now use the small drill/sharp pencil/screwdriver to pierce the refilling hole. Take the help of instruction manual to locate the correct refilling hole.
  7. Take the syringe and draw the ink as per the requirement.
  8. Insert the syringe long needle into the correct ink chamber and filled it. It is important not to push the air into the Canon CL546 ink cartridge foam while refilling it. This will keep the printhead dries and causing printhead not to print.

  10. Repeat steps 7 – 9 for each ink colour.
  11. Now clean the spilled ink with paper towels and cover the holes with the clear scotch tape. Make sure that no ink is leaking out from the filled cartridge.
  12. After refilling all the three ink colours, blot the ink cartridge's printhead on the folded piece of paper towel. Do it for several times till it stops bleeding and you see an even strip of three colours showing up on the paper towel.
  13. Replace the Canon CL546 ink cartridge into your printer and start printing.
