Canon has been forced to remove copy protection chips to their toner cartridges in some regions. It’s obviously more important that customers can print, than the copy protection for Canon’s benefit. support has said that cartridges for a lot of ImageRunner series multi-function printers will be affected. For now, only toner cartridges are affected and ink-based cartridges will continue to have the chip.

Customer experience will be affected by this decision, as the Canon driver software will give users a warning about not using “genuine Canon toner”. There is a workaround if you’re affected by this issue.

Depending on the model of MFP that you have, you will be required to click, I agree, close, or press OK in the right spots to bypass the warning.
