SOURCE: Refilling Ink in Canon Pixma MP830

Hello, I found this in a repair manual for the MP830. summery is to press and hold the stop/reset button for 5 or more seconds. I copied the info from the manual too. The remaining ink amount unknown. [1683] (Applicable ink tank icon) The remaining level of the following ink cannot be correctly detected. An ink tank which has once been empty is installed. Replace the applicable ink tank with a new one. Printing with a once-empty or refilled ink tank can damage the print head. If printing is continued without replacing the refilled ink tank, press the Stop/Reset button for 5 sec. or longer to record the use of a refilled ink tank. Note: After the above operation, the function to detect the remaining ink amount is disabled.

SOURCE: How to Override Ink Level Gauge When Using Refilled Cartridges

I have the same problem with my PIXMA IP 3300. The ink cartridges have 4 electrical contacts on the front. I think the ink level gauge is controlled with these contacts. This is probably just another ploy from Canon to stop you from refillng these cartridges. If anyone knows a way around this , please let me know

SOURCE: I forgot how to change ink cartridge on my printer CANON MP520

usually with the pixma range, if you lift the lid to expose the cartridges, the printer will automatically bring the print head along to the opening to allow you to exchange the cartridges, once it does, simply press down on the exposed cart, and remove it from the printer, the new one is then placed in the now vacant slot and gently lift up the edge until it clicks in to place. Close the lid and the printer will do the rest.

SOURCE: Canon MP560 ink level override

I have the same problem, BUT once the printer detects the cartridge is either empty OR replaced by a generic, it does NOT print at all. It freezes up and refuses to do anything (scan to USB, scan to PC, scan to PC application) until you put in a genuine Canon cartridge. My previous iP PIXMA 4000 the MP560 replaced worked fine with generic cartridge refills. Had for 5 years. But the MP560 is smarter. How can you override this problem? Thanks TDK

To fix this problem, first you need to reset waste ink counter of the printer then you should replace the ink absorber with new one.
In order to reset waster ink counter properly, you can read complete procedure how to reset waste ink counter of the printer below:

Cannon MP520 when printing documents there are lines through some of the text. I have changed the ink cartridge 2 times! What should I do?


The issue is not with the ink cartridge but with the actual print heads. In most (almost all) Canon ink jet prints/multi functions the prints heads are separate from the ink cartridge.
The print head is what guides he ink onto the page, if they become dirty or clogged then you will get lines through images and text or very poor print outs.
You can clean the print heads by using the software that came with the printer and there are some other ways as well.
I tried to paste the instructions from Canons site but they were too long. Use the link below to go to Canon's knowledge base for the MP520 and search for "clean print heads" and follow the instructions that come up.

How do i refill the ink myself cannon mp520


You need to reset or replace the ink level monitoring chip on these cartridges for refills to work. I know some refill kit sellers don't like to mention this to people before they buy the ink. Otherwise, I would recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because it can be messy to fill these cartridges and they always reset the chips for you.

Canon MP520 cartridge swap and ink refill


Canon MP520 multifunctional device - deactivation of the ink level counter
1. You can do it only when the printer counter releases the warning message - "the ink cartridge is nearly empty" = yellow warning mark

2. You have to do this procedure four times - for every cartridge one times
3. At the screen you will see three warning messages
- for the first one press "OK"
- for the second and third one press "Yes"
4. The fourth message tells you that you can do the ink level counter deactivation by pressing the "Stop/Reset" button (7) for more than 5 seconds. Do it.


Later you can see another type of warning message at the screen:

In this case you can not follow the previous procedure - there will not be any other warning messages.
Just follow the message on the screen and press the "OK" button (5) and you can print.
Unfortunately - I do not know for how long time it works.

You have to manualy check the ink level and refill (change) the cartridge before it is completely empty! You might brake your warranty!
When you insert the new original ink cartridge, the counter will work properly again.
