f



two different kinds of cartridges for canon printers?

Hello,

I'm sure this problem has been raised before, but I didn't find the 
answer when I googled for it, nor when I searched Canon's website, nor 
when I asked people in person.

I have two Canon printers: the BJC-2000 and the BJC-4550.  Both of them
are supposed to take the BC-20 cartridge, which I have installed, and 
the BCI-21, which I have not.  The problem is that the BCI-21 is very 
different in shape and size from the BC-20.  The BCI-21, even when 
paired (color + black), is not quite a matchup to the BC-20.

What's going on?  Why do several diferent sources say that these 
cartridges are interchangeable?  If they are interchangeable, HOW do I 
install the BCI-21?

Thank you for all answers.

Ted Shoemaker

The BC-20 cartridge is an integrated printhead cartridge.

The BCI-21 is a tank (available in black and tri-color)
which is installed in the BC-21e printhead.

You will need a BC-21e printhead to run BCI-21 cartridges.

The BCi-21 cartridges (Black and Colour) fit into a removable printhead 
(BCi-21e).
You can purchase this item over the net or in reputable computer stores.
It comes ready supplied with one of each tank and fits in place of the 
BC-20.
This then allows you both black and or colour output.
