Question about Canon PIXMA MP170 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hello.. my name is Scott and i have a problem with my printer .. it is a Canon MP170 and i have had it for about 12 months. the first time i replaced the INK with a non gen colour ink it came up with a error saying nged it and now it has a UNKNOWN Error on the Printer screen saying: U051 and BLK INK VOL UNKNOWN & COL INK VOL UNKNOWN.. I have a brand new gen canon black ink. if someone can give me steps to fix this problem that will be GREAT.. i was told there was a INK Reset button or something like that once you got new ink you are meant to press RESET or something i have no idea what that is meaning. please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with helps for this ASAP! thank you very much Scott
Something that worked for me, I opened the Conon MX310. took out both cartridges, and for 10 seconds I held the Reset. put the cartridges back in, closed the lid, and again, for another 10 seconds held the reset. SLOW seconds. this reset, ink levels recognised,, and it's working as it should be.

How do you turn off the ink status monitor????????? I've been through the entire array of "Menu" options and there is nothing apparent. I have the same "col vol unknown" error, but I'm using a real Canon printer cartridge. Needless to say, I'm frustrated beyond compare.

Turn off the ink status monitor. You'll know it's time to refill again when your printing starts to fade, streak, or discolour. It seems like there in no way to reset the ink levels.
