getting new cartriges around here is a nightmare my canon Pixma MP 140 is very popular but difficult to find cartriges in Kusadasi.

Try this next time you are running low on ink I does work..!!! Just a tip.

Good tip Zozatky
I have the Canon MP240 and cannot get cheaper cartridges yet so they wanted £32 for both in PC World.
I took the old cartridges to a firm Inkwells in the UK that refill cartridges and they did this for £6 each so £20 saved.
You have to then override each of the cartridge,s circuits by pressing the button for each on the printer top for 10 seconds that stops it being rejected.
The printer status will still say "ink low" but it will carry on using the refilled cartridges and this trick above is another way of overriding the printer memory.
The printers own memory says they are empty and need replacing usually far earlier than necessary!!.
If you dont override the memory the printer will just refuse to work because IT thinks they are empty even though some left or its been refilled.
The manufacturers sell you a cheap printer for £50 then charge £32 for the new cartridges which is a rip off when they are quite easy to refill in the hands of someone who understands the system.
I will now save nearly £100 a year.

When I'm in the UK I use Cartridge World, as I think their prices are great.

May be better idea to buy yourself a NEW printer that resettable cartridges, then using the above tip, you will soon save so much money on cartridges that the NEW printer will have paid for itself.
Or keep losing money with your old printer..

Economics!

Fantastic, thanks for that great information. My black is showing 'low' now so when it stops working I will do this to the cartridge. lol

My local supplier wanted 48TL for a Canon cartridge but offered to refill my old one for 10TL. Wasn't sure that it wouls work but seems OK so far, fingers crossed.

Yep and me!!
Occasionally the cartridge case loses its electronic function and they just use another empty cartridge that works.
I had to override the printer functions by pressing each button for the b/w and colour cartridge down for 30 seconds so though it still says ink low ,it doesnt actually stop printing!!!
Cheap and saves a fortune over my £35 for two new cartridges!!!!!

Certainly in the uk it is much cheaper to use compatible ones than original. They say that you printer won't last so long but when you work out the cost of the printer(mines about £70) it's cheaper to throw the printer away and get a new one. So far my printer is still going after a couple of years of using the non standard cartridges.
