SOURCE: P8 error code on cannon mp260 cannot get to print

The 8 error code just means that the ink absorber is full and needs to be replaced. Power cycling will not help this problem. You need to replace the absorber and reset the counter

SOURCE: reset Ink levels for canon mx310

You could just turn the ink refill monitor off.

Open the Windows Start menu, open the "Canon Utilities" folder, open the "My Printer" folder, open "My Printer", click on "Printer Status", go to the "Options" menu, unselect "Enable Status Monitor".

You should be able to tell when your ink is low, because the color will fade.

You can't reset the counter of any Canon Pixma cartridges.You should be to turn off the function on printer for showing the ink level.In most printers this happen with press and hold for 5 seconds the resume button.

SOURCE: Hi! I has refill my ink cartridges for canon mp490

Welcome to the world of Canon. Simply put, the PG-210 CL-211 cartridges have what I like to call "digital fuses" built in. One fuse for "new" and one for "empty". When you install a new Canon cartridge both "digital fuses" are intact. The "new" fuse tells the printer that it is a new genuine Canon cartridge and resets the page counter internal to the printer. With the page counter reset, the printer "blows" the "digital fuse" and that cartridge enters the used state. When the page counter on the printer believes the cartridge to be completely empty it will "blow" the second "digital fuse" and the printer will from then on refuse to recognize it as a valid cartridge. Some claim to have ways around this, but Canon really has won this battle. My Cartridge World store does not refill these cartridges and does not recommend refilling them. Buying original Canon cartridges is what we recommend.

Bland and color cartridges have been refilled but


Ink level counter (program) didn't read actually ink at ink tank. Brand new cartridge ink level counter 100% (full), and ink 100% (about 10 ml). After may printing, ink will dry out, and ink level counter reach zero (ink out). Printer will not allow print anymore, even have refilled, because ink level read "ink out". For canon type, you just to release ink level counter, and counter just stop, but printer will allow to print. Press stop/reset button for about 30 second.

I filled in a Dell 924 cartridge and now the printer does not recognize it and does not print


if the cartridge is chipped, it will still be recognised as empty, since the cartridge uses a backwards counter to estimate the amount of left-over ink. there are tools to reset the chip on an ink cartridge to refill it, which you can normally buy in the shop where you bought the refill-kit (if not already included). please note that the cartridge may not warn you again about being empty. when print quality deteriorates, refill. if print quality stays bad (even after a refill), replace the cartridge with a new (original) one.

Is there a way to reset the laser cartridge counter?



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

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.

Lexmark z54 won't recognize the refilled cartridge


Lexmark does not support the use of refilled or third party cartridges.

This is a statement of the quality of the ink and the concern for the damage that low grade ink can cause on print quality and product.

Please do not shoot the messenger, the above statement is true.

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.

Canon MP210 Ink Counter Reset


You can find the solution here:

You must hold the stop/resume button for 2 or 3 seconds. The printers detects that it's a filled cartridge and alert you about it... That's all.
