Try this with and without paper in it. If there is no change, try it with and without the ink in it. If still not change it is your logic board. If removing the ink fixes it, you likely have a bad cartridge, if removing the paper, then your sensor in the paper tray is going bad.

Won't turn on.


Did you get it working Jason? My MP610 did the same thing to me this morning... I went through all the rigmarole of moving it, testing it with different power cords and etc... with no success. I left it unplugged completely, tried it again this afternoon and it works. Well, it turned on, copied a piece of paper, I was able to access the ink cartridges and switched it on and off again twice and it worked. Hoping it will stay that way.
I don't know if it happened because I put a CF card in to slot - will try card in another reader first and see what happens...
I would be interested to hear what happened with yours, Jason.Cheers, Vicki 23rd April 2012

I cant reset the canon mx-310 from u051 code.The previous advises did not help!


his will clear your printer from displaying common printer errors like U053, U051 and U052. The importance of the "reset the cartridge" procedure is to avoid the printer from detecting your cartridge as reused one. The steps below is recommended to do after refilling an ink cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer
2. Press and hold the STOP/RESET button
3. Press and hold Power ON button
4. While holding the Power ON button, release the STOP/RESET button
5. While holding still the Power ON button, press twice the STOP/RESET button
6. Release the Power ON button
7. Wait until it display an "idle" message. It will take about a minute.
8. When "idle" appear, open the top cover to expose the cartridges.
9. Lift up the cover for cartridge holder and take out both the black and color cartridges
10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer
11. Return the top cover and turn on the printer again
12. After the printer initialize, return the cartridges.

What happened when ink ran out from a refilled cartridge and the printer detected it?
The printer will display an error U162 or U163. All functions of the all-in-one printer will stop and your printer will not work. The next thing you will know is you are in the front of a computer shop and buy a genuine canon cartridge.
But wait, there is still a way to fix this. Reset it again using a different procedure. Reset the detections of reusable cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer an turn it on again
2. After the printer initialize try to copy or print. The error will appear.
3. When the error is displayed on the display panel of the printer, Press and Hold the STOP/RESET button and wait until it self restart.
4. Release the STOP/RESET button the the printer is restarting.
5. Wait for a few seconds and the pending print jobs will commence.

Let me know if this works with you

My printer won't turn on after a power failure.


Most of the time if your printer will not turn on that means that the low voltage power supply is shot. If the machine is under warranty you may be able to have it replaced.


There is no reset on the printer, if you cannot get the printer replaced under warranty I recommend buying a new printer as you cannot even order the parts to fix the printer with the problems you are having.

Hope This helps!
