Kodak’s line of inkjet printers boast cost savings over other brands of inkjet printers. Like other printers, Kodak’s print cartridges are managed by a microchip that takes inventory of the amount of ink in each cartridge and determines if cartridges are usable by your printer. While this safeguard is designed to protect your printer from being damaged by printing from an empty cartridge, you can bypass this feature by replacing your original chips with after-market chips.
- Remove the ink cartridge from the printer and carefully turn it over.
- Push the protective plastic guide holding the chip in toward the body of the cartridge, then slide the chip downward until it is removed from the cartridge body.
- Clip the protective plastic guide off of the cartridge with the wire cutters.
- Slide the replacement chip into place, making sure to align it with the longer portion of the chip toward the left side of the cartridge.
- Install the cartridge into your printer for use.
