Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Canon MX310 doesn't go on and Alarm light goes on solid.

I just purchased this machine yesterday.
Everything worked fine after I set it up.

Today I turned it on and the display didn't come on.
I disconnected it from the wall and connected it again. From that moment the machine will not turn on, and the annoying yellow alarm light is on solid.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks

Disconnect it again for sometime.also try to remove the cartridges from the printer if possible.and take out the power wire of the printers back for sometime.also remove if any computer wire connected to the back of the printer and then slowly ---slowly connect every thing back and check out.it should work.as the printer is new and the alarm light also bliks if the internal parts gets misallighned or blocked internally.if such problems get it replaced.

PG-40
CL-41
(normal capacity)

PG-50
CL-51

I have Canon multifunction MX310 I was using


press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.Canon do not like you to use refills and generic carts so the function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled

On my canon MX 310 printer I put in new Canon CL-41 Fine color cartridge and now the alarm light is lit and the screen says Check Ink U051 COL How can I correcty the problem?


You may need a new cartridge, that error says the ink cartridge is wrong or not installed properly. If it's a refilled cartridge it won't work, if it's a new canon cartridge, they warranty for 30 days from date of purchase.

Alarm won't reset


To reset you can't just turn it off & on normally. You have to unplug the unit for a few minutes to an hour or so, depending on manufacturer, then plug the unit back in and turn it on. This usually will reset the unit. Hope this helps.
