  • CatGenie:  Resetting a SaniSolution Cartridge

    I think you're right. The cartridge I used must have 1 or 2 washes left...I just tried an empty one and it didn't work....So I guess you need a cartridge with at least a cycle left in it for this to work

    cartridge genius.com - Keep checking back for stock on his item or send him an email. I don't think Arduino can do what the CartridgeGenius does...But I'd LOVE someone to prove everyone wrong!!!

  • CatGenie: A smart, resettable SaniSolution cartridge

    If anyone cares...I found a temporary solution... for CatGenie 120..haven't tried on CG601. Take empty/full cartridge (shouldn't matter) and pull it out of the machine.2. Insert cartridge and wait for lights to register and immediately press start until you hear the beep and genie starts up.3. Pull out cartridge right after the genie starts.You will have lights indicating no cartridge, but it will do the whole cycle anyway...The sanisolution is only added in the drying cycle so it's just for scent (it does help improve the smell a lot!!!)I saw a post somewhere where someone was doing this...I ordered an Arduino chip and figured out after that it only works on the cg60 NOT 120 :(I have been doing this with an "empty" cartridge for a while and it continues to work...possibly due...

    It's not! Different cartridge reading mechanisms doesn't allow this to work on the 120. Check out the solution I posted...
