    I'd like to understand the circuitry that accompanies canon cartridges.

    Has anyone found a good tutorial site.

    thanks

    The "circuitry" would be trivial - a trace from the pad to the ink gun.
    Who the hell is going to pay somebody to come with a tutorial on a
    throwaway part?

    At the appropriate time, you send a current pulse to the correct ink
    jet, and it squirts ink at the paper. I think it's little heating
    elements, that boil the ink and shoot the remaining liquid ink by
    the power of ink vapor.

    Good luck!

    He probably wants to see the chip that tells the printer the cart has been
    used before.
    There are refill sites that show how to spoof the binary code sent to the
    printer by the chip.

    Canon doesn't do that nonsense.
    In fact, Canon (except for their cheapest units)
    uses seperate inkwells for each color (quite frugal).

    You're thinking of Lexmark, Epson, And HP.
