Go into the Canon Printer Utilities. Click on Solution Menu folder. Click on Solution Menu icon. A new window will open up. Click on "Change settings or find solutions to problems. A new window will open up. This screen will give you 3 selections to choose from. They are: Printer Settings, Printer Status and Troubleshooting. You will be able to reset your ink cartridge levels from these windows and try to print again.
If you have put in genuine Canon cartridges, contact Canon support for advice.
If you have refilled in any other way, your printer cannot detect ink
levels. If you have used a refill kit, you might have problems if you
return your printer for repair under warranty as evidence of refilling
is the first thing checked for
Hi If you replaced the cartridges with genuine Canon cartridges then there's probably a build up of ink under the cartridge carriage. Pull out all the cartridges and lift up the carriage. Clean it using a non alcohol cleaner. While you're at it put some cleaner on a folded up paper towel and wipe the ink reservoir located on the right hand side, where the carriage sits when idle. If you replaced your Canon cartridges with off brand cartridges then you might not have changed the chips over. On the old cartridges there's a tiny chip glued to the plastic in front. This chip must be popped off and snapped onto the new cartridge. Good luck
There is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. Therefore, your printer will always think refills are empty. You can choose on the dialogue box to "ignore ink levels" and run the cartridge until it is empty. This is just one thing you will need to deal with on refills of this cartridge type.
This usually happens when you are using aftermarket inks. The sensors on the cartridges are not always up to specs. The problem does not occur on OEM cartridges.
Sometimes you can remove and reseat the same cartridge and the printer will resume. If the problem persists after trying the remove and reseat procedure, the cartridge should be replaced and the defective cartridge discarded.
If you are near an office supply that rebates for old cartridges and you are reloading your own cartridges, take the old cartridge in and replace it with an OEM cartridge so the problem doesn't repeat.
Hope this helps.
I found that if you just hold down the 'stop' button with the little red icon on it for a few seconds, it resets the ink. But the cartridge has to have the error message that says it is completely out of ink, not just low on ink. Hold it down for a few seconds until it starts processing. It will check the cartridge, and then it worked for me!
i have an mp170 all in one and when you fill the cartriges they dont show up as full cannon put a chip in the cartridge to con people into buying new ones try siting the cartridges in warm water for a few hours then blot the cartridge with tisue paper if it dont blot out the ink the cartride is finnished and you need a new one .To align the cartridge you flick through the menu on the printer not pc screen look for alignment page print this off then you have to pick the dark boxes on the sheet shade the bit next to it and put on your scan bed and click ok it should scan the sheet and reset the alignment
Well, first off ,it's dell's fault, not yours. Even Official Dell cartridges are temperamental at best. The cartridge error you are explaining is common with Dells. They even have what's called a marriage issue, meaning the cartridge will work in only one single printer. However, I'm not sure how to fix it. Sometimes, you can install a new one and the other cartridge you never touched gives you fits, and goofs up. I'd say get a new printer. Dell is increasingly getting more stingy with their ink, and truth be told, I don't think their quality (*lexmark makes dell, so stay away from them too) matches HP or canon. If you want the best cost per page, get a canon that has individual ink cartridges. They are easy to refill, and print a great picture. You pay more $$ up front, but you'll save a ton in the long run
This step is a "reset" step for the Canon CLI8
cartridges. The original Canon CLI8 cartridges have a memory chip on
the back of the cartridge, which sends a signal to the printer when the
cartridge is empty. Your printer won't be able to determine how much
ink is in the compatible cartridges, but you can easily monitor the ink
level by noticing the ink level drop in the cartridge as you print (the
cartridges are see-through), or by noticing low ink output on the
printed pages when you run out of ink. The "reset" procedure below is
the best procedure we know of to date to allow your printer to use
Uni-Kit cartridges which offer a tremendous savings over the Original
With the original chip now
attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to
get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge
now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to
reset the chips.
The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar
to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press
and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold
the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button
(for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
"Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to
print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold
the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed
Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds
