There is such a shortage of ink that Canon teaches you how to use pirated cartridges

Published

The shortage in the semiconductor market is not only causing the most powerful chips on the market are scarce, as is the case with graphics cards, but also affects devices that use old or weak chips, as for example with the Raspberry Pi. Even ink cartridges use chips, and manufacturers like Canon are having trouble accessing them, recommending their own customers to hack.

The use of unofficial cartridges in ink printers It is a very widespread practice today. Manufacturers charge astronomical prices for a few milliliters of ink, which is why many turn to unofficial cartridges that cost up to 10 times less than the originals.

Printer shortage comes to cartridges

The functionality of these cartridges is practically identical, and the vast majority of manufacturers allow the use of these cartridges without much complication. Some brands like Canon or Epson, when entering a unofficial cartridge, show a message saying that we are using a compatible cartridge, but that we can use it normally. Others, like HP, greatly limit that function.

Since the pandemic began, it has been quite difficult to get hold of a printer. The increase in demand as the number of people who work at home increases, coupled with the fact that chips to make them have been in short supply for the past two years. The price of some printer models has doubled, and it is hard to find them in stock.

This stock problem is also affecting cartridges. So much so, that Canon has published a support sheet stating that the semiconductor shortages is preventing them from making all official cartridges with detection chips. These chips identify a cartridge as official, and can also record the level of ink or toner remaining.

Canon stops including chips in some toners

To avoid supply problems with cartridges, Canon has announced that it will temporarily is going to stop including chips in its cartridges until they can restore normal supply. Print quality will not be affected, but ink level detection will. In cartridges without a chip, the ink level will always appear at 100%, except when it is used up, which will go directly to 0%, and it will be necessary to change the cartridge.

Also, on the help page, Canon specifies that if there is a problem with the detection of the cartridge, and it does not print the error, you can skip it by reseating the official cartridge. Most models use toner, so in principle this only affects the following laser models of the company:

Elon Musk announced the creation of a hardcore judicial department

Billionaire Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and SpaceX, has announced the creation of a “hardcore litigation department” to “directly initiate and execute lawsuits.” This announcement came right after the CEO was accused of sexual harassment.

Yesterday it became known that a charge was brought against Musk, which says that in 2016, Musk harassed a flight attendant on board one of the SpaceX aircraft. He allegedly offered a flight attendant a horse in exchange for sex.

Dmitry Rogozin has already commented on the situation, complaining next time to offer a donkey.

He also outlined two main points in the work of the new team:

  • We will never seek victory in a just cause against us, even if we are likely to win.
  • We will never give up and close an unfair case against us, even if we probably lose.

This reflects Musk’s previous comments about his and Tesla’s litigation policy: “Tesla’s policy is to never give in to false claims, even if we lose, and never to fight true claims, even if we win.”
