recently my printing volume increased dramatically and I researched for an economic way to use my Canon IP4300 by refilling the cartidges
however, if the chip is not reset the printer stops to monitor ink usage and thus there is a risk of trying to print with empty cartidge which harms printer
there are auto reset chips or chip resetters, however I wouldn't waste more money on them (the cost would exceed the printer cost itself) and waste time to reset them
thus, I would like to somehow accurately and reliably monitor ink usage, by monitoring pages printed, ink coverage on each page, etc, so that to use a software method to alert when ink would run low
is there a solution like this?
if you have other solutions for cheap printing please inform me
