Generic ink problem Canon mp530 printer

Hello to All

Does anyone know how to override the Canon mp530 printer warning when using generic inks - the ones where you re-use the puce from the original?

As well maybe how to be able to use the other printer functions i.e. scan and copy until the ink can be replaced? It seems with the ink warning nothing else will operate.

Thank you All for any ideas.

    Sorry. When I say puce I mean micro-chip. Been living in France for too long...

    I also have the problem with different ink error messages causing an alarm situation and can't do anything. Have tried holding down the Reset button, but that doesn't do anything either. So, can't do scanning or copying even though ink is not needed for those functions!

The solution is to press the button with the button with the triangle on it for five seconds (the reset button? I can't remember off the top of my head, but one of the main buttons). It switches off the warning system and the gauging system. The plus side is that you can reuse the cartridges indefinitely even if it has a chip in it, the downside is that the computer/printer will no longer tell you what level your ink is at.

Fix error e5

Due to the expense of manufacture ink often people are using generic ink or refills. Generic is just that generic and not all generic sends the right code to the printer to recognize it and refills doesn't let the printer know ink if full.

Won't print

Did you use generic ink? These generic carts are different (no seal to prevent staining). This carts stain the led control circuit board
which has to be replaced by a new one (the spare part is only avaiable as the whole ink cart holder incl. led board and tubes).

There is no way to do a short fix, sorry!

Pg 40 and Cl 41 are too expensive

After you install the refilled cartridges and received the "you are out of ink" warning, press and hold the RESET button for about 5 seconds. Than a second time. The E-5 message should cleared.

MP530 - Check Printer - 6A00 error

Hope it will work for you
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
