Mx310 stuck in factory mode 1

I have used compatible ink, and have tried the solutions suggested of switching on holding reset button, pressing, removing cartridges...you know the long list! However my printer goes to "factory mode 1" and won't let me do anything else. Any suggestions before I throw it out the window?

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: MX310 error code U163

Hello,

Can you tell me, have you replaced the empty tank with a full one? And, have you manually reset the ink level function by pressing Stop/Reset for a full 6 seconds (one second longer than described in your manual?)

If you have, and you still see the ink cartridge light flashing, does it flash every second or every three seconds?

The contacts for the ink cartridge are easy to contaminate by accident. Sometimes wiping the contacts off with alcohol will clean them enough for the ink level to be recognized.

Now, and yes, this is a common problem. Press and Hold the Stop/Reset button for 6 full seconds again after cleaning the contacts and then release it? Use the one Mississippi method of counting.

The Scan cover must be closed completely and locked in place. And the ink cartridge must be firmly locked in place as well.

Please advise me of your results. There may be a more complex problem involved and it is important to have the necessary data in order to get you back to working again. Okay?

How long has it been since you purchased this printer?

Regards,
Worldvet

The ink absorber is full,The waste ink error is based upon time instead of actual volume in the tank. You can reset the counter by the instructions below.

(1) Turn off the printer.
(2) Press and hold the STOP/RESET button, then press and hold the POWER button.
(3) Release the STOP/RESET button, Next press and release the STOP/RESET button two(2) more times in
succession. Note: you are still holding the POWER button). The printer's carriage will "reset"
or move momentarily. If the above was properly performed the printer will enter the
"Service Mode".

I have a separate fax line for my Canon MX310. It goes into fax mode but noting happens. I also cannot receive faxes.


The only reason to call the phone company is if you're not getting a dial tone on that line. Otherwise, have you shut down the printer and tried to reset it to factory defaults. To do that, follow the instructions below:
  • 1 Switch the Canon MX310 off using the "Power" button, then push the "Stop/Reset" button on the control panel. Hold the button down for about five seconds.
  • 2 Push the "Power" button while holding "Stop/Reset." Hold down both buttons for five seconds.
  • 3 Release "Stop/Reset" while holding down the "Power" button.
  • 4 Push "Stop/Reset" twice while continuing to hold the "Power" button. Release the "Power" button. The power light will turn green.
  • 5 Once the light is steady green, push "Stop/Reset." Wait about three seconds and push it again. Wait three more seconds and push it one final time, for a total of three times. The power light will turn orange.
  • 6 Push the "Power" button, then lift the MX310 cover open.
  • 7 Remove both ink cartridges and wait 10 seconds. Replace the cartridges and close the MX310 cover. Wait 30 seconds.
  • 8 Push the "Power" button. Wait a few seconds to allow the printer to fully power down, then switch the Canon MX310 back on using the "Power" button.
  • Good Luck Mark

Pixma mx328 check ink u051


The error usually came out after you refill ink on the black cartridge...there is no way you can make the printer work without resetting the ink cartridge..

Try to reset the printer using this procedure.. it will help.
1. turn off the printer..
2. press/hold the stop/reset button..and press/hold power button too..
3 while holding power button, release the stop/reset button..
4. then press the stop/reset button twice..
5. release power button..and wait until the power button lights a steady/still green and says "idle"...
6. open the cover...take out both catridges.. then turn off the printer.
7.put back the cover then turn on...
8. now put the catridges back.. and wait for some time to return to display menu... then try to print...

The printer may still prompt a "black ink volume unknown and color ink volume unknown" but don't worry that won't affect the operation of the printer. And you will able to use your printer, fax and scanner.

Do this every time you refill the ink of the cartridges.

If you find this solution helpful please vote on this on the YES below..thanks..
