    Thanks for the tip! Very helpful in dealing with error messages that come from using refilled cartridges. My printer likes to pretend they're out of ink when they're not!

I have canon pixma 310 its say chech ink u163 what thats mean


Good Day Sandip920!

Error U163 means, the printer detected that your black ink cartridge has been refilled with new ink.
It is very easy to clear this error and keep your printer printing.

How?
1. Turn on your printer.
2. When error U163 appears, press and hold the STOP/RESET buton on the printer. Hold it down until the printer self restart and initialize.
3. if after U163 is cleared off and appear another error, U162, press and hold again the STOP/RESET button and wait till printer self restart and initialize again.

Hope this helps!

Error code U163 on cannon pixma mp220 printer


Those cartridges don't refill unless you have a way to reset the internal chip. Check online for refillable cartridges or a chip resetter. For priming you go into printer properties and choose maintenance and head cleaning, or choose cleaning from the front panel.

U163 problem


More the likley, your printer's manufacturer does not allow for the use of refilled ink cartridges on their products.

Please purchase a factory new cartridge from the manufactuer of the printer.

Check ink u163 error message


Firstly I suspect you are not using genuine cartridge or you have refilled the cartridge.
To fix this you need to disable the ink checking procedure.

Do you know that low ink or ink has run out message appears once cartridge empty. If you want to use refill ink in that cartridge then you need to deactivate ink level to get your printer run as usual. Check the following tips to fix low ink error message in case of refill ink usage. Below some methods to deactivate ink level detection function for some models due to its similarity.
