Daily you will get customers asking what it means where there are cartridges listed with chip or without chip. They’ll ask if it will work with a chip on there, what does the chip look like, what does the chip do and so on, well here you will find an answer.
The chip is a little gold memory which contains the ink levels, allows it to recognise it is created for a certain printer type and can also read when there is an error with the cartridge. The cartridges are simply ink tanks which are filled with the ink but without the chip they won’t work as the printer is not going to realise that a cartridge has been installed and therefore you won’t be able to proceed on with printing, and an error message will appear stating ‘missing cartridge’.
We supply cartridges with and without chips as some customers find without chip easier to work with as we do provide a description of what without chip means and instructions on how to transfer the chip from an old/previous cartridge, and by doing this it saves money and it is more efficient as you are simply recycling and helping the environment. We do often find that customers prefer with chip as they are not very confident in transferring the chip from one cartridge to another or taking the time to do so.
If the instructions are not followed clearly the chip can become damaged and will not work from the onwards and this is where people can make a mistake and realise it is not for them transferring a chip.
