1. Cover the outlet hole with the orange outlet seal that came with the cartridge (a rubber band will hold this in place) to prevent ink loss during refilling or with your finger over the outlet port while wearing latex gloves .

2. Use the "L tool" provided to push the Sealing Ball into the cartridge (tap on the 'L tool' if the ball is stuck). If you can't see the ball just above the "push" then peel back the top label on the reservoir side of the cartridge to expose the Sealing Ball. This is the ball Canon used to plug up the hole after they refilled the cartridge.

3. Attach the needle to the syringe and fill with the correct color ink.

4. Slowly inject approximately 13 ml. of Black Ink or 6 ml of Color Ink slowly into the filling hole until the chamber is almost full. Unused ink may be returned to the bottle.

5. Seal the hole using the Green Plug. Put your finger on the green plug and twist until it is seated well in the hole.

6. Remove the orange outlet seal (or your finger) from the outlet hole.

7. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.

8. If you have trouble getting your cartridge to print and the sponge side of the cartridge looks dry then drill a hole (or burn a hole with a hot paper clip) into the top of the sponge side of the cartridge. Stick the syringe needle into the sponge and fill with ink. You do not need to seal this hole.

If you are filling cartridges to use later, leave the orange outlet seal rubber banded onto the cartridge. This will prevent your sponge from drying out.
Note: On the CLI-8 and PGI-5 series cartridges, there is an electronic counter embedded in a small computer chip/board. This counter starts at a high number and decreases for every character printed. Eventually, the counter reaches zero. At this point, an error message is generated by the printer. If you click "OK" to the error message, the printer will continue to print.
If you have trouble getting your printer to print because it thinks the cartridges are empty. Look on your printer for an orange blinking light. This is your reset button, usually the paper feed button also. Hold this button in for 5 seconds until the light goes out. Note: this will not reset the ink level back to full.

I have changed the colour ink on my canon mp460 but it still say empty


CL41, this is the one you are using for your cartridge.

Did you change your cartridge with brand new one or refilled one??

If you did with refilled one, the ink level won't go back with full.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the method how printer measures the ink level.

1. Each cartridge has a serial number.
2. As soon as installation in printer, printer recognizes the cartridge by serial #.
3. And the printer starts to count the printing document.
4. After reaching certain print counting, the ink level will show "low ink"

So my answer is even if you refilled your cartridge, the ink level won't change,
since printer cannot weight the cartridge or.....some other technology to measure each color ink level.

Thanks.

Why won't my canon printer MP460 read my ink cartridges? It keeps saying "Cannot read ink cartridges" on the black ink.


Hi, are you using Canon or refilled cartridges? If you are using Canon, there's a problem with the cartridge. If you are using refilled cartridges it's because the cartridge has been used. When you first put a Canon cartridge in, the printer reads the cartridge and knows it's a new one, I'm not sure of the mechanics of it, I don't know if it blows a chip or fuse in the cartridge but it can read a new one. If it's been used, it can't read it so you get the message that it can't read it.
Turn off the staus monitor and the message will go and you can carry on printing, it won't tell you when the cartridges are empty, you'll just notice the print quality going downhill.

How can i print in black and white only on my mp460 . my color cartridge is empty. i dont need to print in color


You can go into the printer properties and set the printer to print "Grayscale" only. That will override the data information coming from the PC.

However, if the ink levels are being checked at POST (Power On Self Test" time you may still be notified that the color ink is empty and not be allowed to print.

why not go to a WallMart or Office Depot and pick up the required Canon cartridge.

Do not even consider using third party ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. That stuff can and usually does wreak havoc on the printer and in some cases can be enough to cause the manufacturer to void the warranty on the printer.

When I send a job to my printer, it prints out a blank page. Why?I have a Canon MP460 printer


Print a test page using the menu controls. If that comes out blank the chances are either the cartridges are empty or the nozzless are clogged. If so clean them with the pink fluid you get with refill kits, or use the cleaning setting of your printer.

Is there ANY way to print with only one cartridge on my Canon?


2 things:
No, you can't print without all ink installed, and if you're printing in B&W mostly, you're wasting your money. Buy a B&W laser printer (HP), for $80-$90 and get 2000 pages per cartridge instead of 200.
Then find a reliable source for remanufactured cartridges and save 30-40% on the cost of replacements as well.
Just my 2 cents.

How can I get the Canon MP460 to print in black and white only?


what you'll need to do is just refill the color cartridge.
you may not need to use it, but refill it to prevent it from drying out and not being able to work. That is because for the printer to work both cartridges need to be in working order.

Canon mp460 not recognising replaced ink cartridge and cannot get rid of alarm code


hi guys,
BTW, did you refill the cartridge?. First, try to press START button (Black or Colour). Perform this procedure for each cartridge. If the problem still persist there some possibilities: cartridge error, carriage part or logic board is faulty. Then you need to replace faulty part.
Regards
