Here's what you can do....

METHOD #1 - Easiest, but it disables the ink tank level indicators.
1) Ignore the low ink indicator, and press the RESET BUTTON to continue printing. If you press and hold the reset button for 5+ seconds, it will disable the counter for that particular ink tank. Refill tank now.

2) Repeat as needed.
You will get a dire warning that this will void you warranty, blah blah blah. If you do need to take your printer in during warranty and you've disabled ink tank counting, simple reset the entire printer as describe below for the wate tank warning, and nobody will ever know. SAVE YOUR CANON CARTS with a bit of ink left in- your printer will need to have Canon carts installed for warranty service.

3) Eventually you may be warned that the tank is empty. Press reset as above to disable and continue printing.

If you think this entire thing is ridiculous- you are right.
Get an earlier model that takes un-chip carts, like an ip6000, or ip3000, or i960. Much simpler and you get to use the ink tank indicators after refilling.

************

You can reset the entire printer with the WASTE TANK reset (below) when you need to clean or change the waste tank PAD (its really not a tank) See the above instructions for the i960 and similar for other Canon printer waste tank changes.
Here's the ip4200 reset options:
1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing
the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power
button. (DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED
lights in green to indicate that a function is
selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the
resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power
button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the
Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both
the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the

Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and
Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power
in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the
Resume/Cancel button the specified number of
time(s)
setting).

Time(s) LED indication Function Remarks
0 times Green (Power) Power off When the print head is

not installed, the carriage returns and locks in the

home position capped.
1 time Orange (Alarm) Service test print .
2 times Green (Power) EEPROM information print
3 times Orange (Alarm) EEPROM initialization
4 times Green (Power) Waste ink counter resetting
5 times Orange (Alarm) Destination settings After
entering the destination settings mode, press the
Resume/Cancel button the specified number of time(s)

to select the destination. For detail, see
"Destination settings procedures" below.

7 times Orange (Alarm) Reserved
8 times Green (Power) CD / DVD check pattern
9 times Orange (Alarm) CD / DVD print position

10 times Green (Power) CD / DVD print position

11 to 13 times Orange, Green, Orange(Alarm,

When i gave print from doucment machine takes paper and give it as it as blank, solve my problem,


Solution one: Check the ink levels To allow for full use of the cartridges, some printers continue to print even after the cartridges are completely out of ink. Follow these steps to check the ink levels in the Toolbox . The Toolbox is part of the standard printer software. Depending on the version of Toolbox on your computer, the appearance of the Toolbox features might vary. NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When an indicator shows low ink levels, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. Print quality deteriorates as cartridges run out of ink.
  1. Click Start .
  2. Click Printers and Faxes .
  3. Right-click the icon for your printer (c01532298.gif ), and then click Printing Preferences .
  4. Click the Features tab.
  5. Click the Printer Services button. The Toolbox window opens.
  6. Click the Estimated Ink Levels tab. A window opens that indicates the estimated ink level of each cartridge. NOTE: Depending on the printer, the estimated ink level indicators can vary in appearance. Examples of estimated ink level indicators c01867289.gif c01867290.gif
  7. If the ink level indicators show that a cartridge is low or empty, replace the cartridge.
  8. Try printing again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.
Solution two: Restart the printer Restarting the printer might clear the issues and allow the printer to function correctly again.
  1. Press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn off the printer. NOTE: Pressing the Power button might not turn off the printer. This might happen if the printer is in an error state. Continue with these steps regardless.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer. Figure 1: Disconnect the power cordc01869581.gif
  3. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the printer. Figure 2: Disconnect the USB cablec01850063.gif
  4. Wait 30 seconds.
  5. Reconnect the USB cable to the printer. Figure 3: Reconnect the USB cablec01868577.gif
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the printer. Figure 4: Reconnect the power cordc01869582.gif
  7. Press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn on the printer.
  8. Try printing again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists

When I Turn on my Canon Pixma Mp210 the error 6 pops up. I try to restart my printer, but it didn't help. What this error means and what to do?


Issue: ERROR LED: E, 1, 6
Solution: Press and hold Stop/Reset button for at least five seconds

Clearing the Ink Error If you want to continue printing in this condition, press and hold the <Stop/Reset> button on the printer for at least five seconds, and then release it. Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).

If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.

The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.

Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

Issue: ERROR LED: E, 1, 6
Solution: Replace ink cartridge(s) MP210


Replacing An Ink Cartridge Use the following procedure to replace empty ink cartridges or when an ink cartridge error appears.
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

    Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.

    *MP470 shown

  2. Press down on the semi-circular tab (circled area in <1>, above) to release the cartridge and then remove it.


    Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.

    *Optional cartridges PG-40 and CL-41 shown in examples

  3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

  4. Take out a new cartridge from its casing and gently remove the orange protective tape in the direction of the arrow.

    05sj00081_02.jpg


    Note: - Do not attempt to reattach the protective tape once you have removed it.
    - Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.

  5. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot*

    *One black cartridge and one color cartridge must be installed in the machine in order for the printer to operate. It does not matter if the capacities (Standard or High) do not match.

  6. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)

    05sj00081_04_en.gif

  7. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.



    05sj00081_04.jpg
    <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

    <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

  8. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

  9. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.


Trust this is helpful. :)

Alram light


Did you replace the Black ink cartridge or the Color cartridge, or did you replace both?

Facing the front of the Canon Pixma MX310, did you install the Black ink cartridge to the left side, and the Color cartridge to the right side?

Do Not reverse how the ink cartridges go. Do Not install a Black ink cartridge, in the Color cartridge holder.

If the Alarm light came on, check to see if you have an error message in the LCD. (Not trying to insult your intelligence. The LCD is the little rectangular Liquid Crystal Display on your Pixma MX310 Operation Panel, to the left of the numeric buttons)

Do you have the Pixma MX310 On-screen manual?
Start>Hover on All Programs>Canon>Pixma MX310>On-screen manual

Click on the Troubleshooting heading.
If you have an error message code, click on the heading ->
An Error Message is Displayed on the LCD.

Also suggest you click on the heading -> Problems Sending Faxes.

See if the information provided has a solution to your problem.

My cannon printer pixma ip1800 cannot detect ink pls help me...


If after you install the cartridge you get a yellow light and error message:
“The following may have run out of color. The function for
detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the
ink level cannot be correctly detected. If you want to
continue printing with out this function, press the printer’s
start button. Canon recommends using new genuine Canon
cartridges in order to obtain optimum quality.”


Do not click “cancel printing”. Press printer start button
to start printing. This action will bypass the ink level
detection from the recycled cartridge. It will not damage the
printer! With a recycled cartridge this action needs to be
done one time.
A full recycled cartridge ink level may not display correctly.
It may show empty.
If you want to check the ink level, you can do a “Nozzle
check” by follow the directions below:
Go to menu File select print click on “Property” click
on “Maintenance”
Click on “Nozzle check” to print out the color check.
Click on “Cartridge Alignment” to align the cartridge.

See pictures for above process at Inktelligent ip 1800 topic
