Clearing the Ink Error
If you want to continue printing with the refilled ink tank installed, press and hold the <Stop/Reset> button on the printer for at least five seconds, and then release it.
if the problem still persist then you need to buy a genuine cannon catridge for replacement.hope this helps

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.

I cannot get printer to recognize new or refilled cartridges. How do I reset Cannon MX310 to see new cartridges?


You can't reset the ink level on all Canon Pixma printers.You need to turn off the function on printer to show the ink level.On most printers this happen with push resume button and hold it for 5 seconds.
The printer shows empty cartridges but it will printing.
If you put a new cartridges the printer will recognize it automatically.

I have a pixma mx310 also


I guess the cartridges can be filled. In my experience, the refill stuff is not what it is cracked up to be. In fact, I have ruined more than a few printers with the off brand ink even though I followed their instructions implicitely.

If $ is a issue, give it a try. On the other hand, to preserve your printer, use (and pay) what the manufacturer requires.

If you Google printer refills, Im certainlyou will find what you are looking for. Still, my advice stands.

I hope this works for you

Refilling a cartridge


You need to use a very thin needle (25 gauge medical needle works well) on a syringe. There is a tiny hole in the canon 40 cartridge under the label which you need to fill. To refill the color cartridge (canon 41) as you look at the cartridge, the hole at the top is magenta, the hole to the left is blue and the hole to the right is yellow, use a separate syringe and needle for each color. Every now and then you will need to use some cartridge cleaner to soften/clean the sponge in the cartridge. I use 0.5cc of cleaner then let sit overnight before adding ink. You need to be sure the label is replaced well or use good tape to keep the ink from escaping.

Reset Ink levels for canon mx310


I've heard that with canon there is a way around the ink-level chip monitoring on the cartridge by doing the following:
  1. Power off printer
  2. Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
  3. Hold POWER and release RESUME
  4. Press RESUME twice
  5. Release POWER button
  6. When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange.
  7. Press POWER to set data
