How to over ride ink level on canon mx300 - Printers & Copiers

Posted by on

  • customshades Sep 23, 2008

    Have refilled ink using original cartridges. The printer will print, although it doesn't recognise the cartridge is now full. The problem is... I have a fax in memory and 'cos the printer doesn't recognise the full cartridge, I cannot print the fax from memory. Therefore, can someone please help me override the printers ink settings to make it believe the cartridges are full? Carolyn ;)

In my opinion your printer is the Inkjet one.

You need to refill the Catridge of the printer.Contact to any Computer or stationary shop.

Hi,

Do the reset and it will display the required ink level for your cartridges/printer.

1 Switch off the Canon MX300 and disconnect the power cable.
2 While press and hold the power button, Connect the power cable to electric socket.
3 While pressing the power button, press the "Cancel/Stop" button (red button).
4 Now release the power button and the printer turns into a kind of factory mode. Wait for 10 seconds until it says "idle".
5 Press ">" (next button) once "Shipping Mode 3′ then Press the "OK" button. Press "OK" again for "without cleaning".
6 A test page will print.
7 Open the cover, like you are about to change the cartridges.
8 Disconnect the power cable again without switch off the printer.
9 Take out the both cartridges.
10 Close the cover.
Connect the power cable and turn on the printer.
Now just put the cartridges back and the ink level in the canon Pixma MX300 have full again.

Regards,
Ron

Canon mx300 not recognize reffil cartridge color 51,


This cartridges has a memory chip and printer will recognized refill cartridges like empty.You can't reset the ink level on all Canon Pixma printers.Push resume button and hold it for 5 seconds.This operation releases the function for detecting the remaining ink level of the above ink.The printer shows empty cartridges but it will printing.
If this not help there is a minimum chance your cartridge is failed electrically and printer not recognized.In this case replace the cartridge.

I just replaced both ink cartridges and the alarm light is now on. The LCD screen reads check ink, U053, BLK COL. I can't get the printer to work or perform any functions.


On the canon MX300, holding the "reset" button down for about 10 seconds will extinguish the alarm light & should normalize all functions. The ink level will still indicate "low" , just ignore it.
