I've recently bought a Canon TS6050 with refillable inks bought from Cityinkexpress.

The inks are so easy to refill, I did it for the first time last week, and if I can do it, anyone can.

I looked up TS6050 and they do sell it, but it looks like the one they do with the ciss system is TS6051 here is the link

https://www.cityinkexpress.co.uk/cheap-printer-bundles/cheap-printer-bundles-for-canon-printers/a4

If you read at the top it says with refillable cartridges, but I'd ring to clarify it.

It's not widely advertised on their site, but instead of the reservoirs that sit by the side of the printer, they are now doing refillable cartridges, they are sent empty and you fill them yourself. When they are low, you take them out and refill them.
If you decide to go with that, give them a ring, which is what I did, and they will give you a price for the package.
EASY TO REFILL TOO!!

Thanks for the reminder about cityink Express. I have a new canon printer still in its box. Waiting for the old printer to finally give up, or until I use the last replacement cartridges that I still have - whichever happens soonest! After reading that you had a canon with refillable ink cartridges I looked up the model that I have, and it seems they do refillable cartridges for it, so may weíll get some. I also noticed a printhead cleaner, do you have one Val? Is it something I should consider?

Pam there is a cleaning option on your printer anyway. If you click into properties when you click to print something, then maintenance, it comes up with the options for cleaning.
If at any time it's not printing sharp images, give it a deep clean.

I'd wait until they have them in stock, did they not say when they would be in??

Thanks for the advice Val. The printer I have now has a self clean function, and that works well when it has to be used, so I won't be bothering with the printhead cleaner for the canon.  Grin
