What happens is the counter is stores on the cartridge chip so the chip still thinks they are empty. The only way to get round this is to put orginal canon cartridge in the machine or swap over the chip from a working one.

Just to let you know refills are cheap and easier but they can cause more damage then you see inside the machine such as printhead and purge unit.

If you change the cartridges with new chips it will then work

hope this helps

Refilled cartridges


the pixma range need to have the chips reset or refilled before they become empty.

Put in a genuine cartridge and it should work. Buy a set of cartridges with dummy chips that allow the printer to use refilled cartridges.

Tri colour problembought to refilled cartridges one displays problem other table, is it the refilled cartridges or the printerwrong cartridge 344 not compar


Hello!
When the printer tells you "wrong cartridge", it is because it cannot recognize the cartridge.
Remove the color cartridge and gently wipe the electric contacts on it with a dry cloth. Put the cartridge back in and check for error messages.
If the problem persists, you will need to buy a new color cartridge, because the one you have is damaged- one of the contacts on it has blown, and when you place it in the printer, it won't recognize it, because one of the contacts is missing (that is why some printers give a warning sign "cartridge missing").
Hope that helps!

You should not refill this cartridge yourself if you want it to work. Sure you can get ink into it and replace the bearing, but you need to place the cartridge under a vacuum to pressurize the cartridge.

Ink reading emty when replaced


If the cartridges are refills they won't show ink levels but you should still be able to print. Then just print until appears to run out of ink,

Canon MP180 Ink Problem


lads ye're all I work in an 'ink place' and the u051 fault is a fault indicating that the offending cartridge is electrically dead, this is caused by the clever little program in the canon machine that writes info to the cartridge to make it'dead' so it cant be re-used ! possible solution is to get refilled before printer thinks it empty !!
