Canon CLI-221/PGI-220 Ink How to Change Chip

Canon CLI-221 series ink cartridges without chip and PGI-220BK ink cartridge without chip are some of the best selling compatible ink cartridges of our store, 123 Ink Cartridges Canada.

Some customers sent inquiries to us asking about what does the “no chip” mean. No chip means that you need replace the chips from the original OEM (genuine) Canon PGI-220BK or CLI-221 series ink cartridges to the new compatible ink cartridges. There is a page in our cartridge box with very detailed and easy-to-follow instructions to show you how to replace the chip. Or you can click the following picture to see the instructions:
