Impossible to use a Canon mp 180

Hello!

I have a problem with my Canon Pixma MP 180. I recharged the ink containers. Now, every time I turn on the printer, I have only one message: ""check ink" and the U051 code error. I can not use the printer, I do not know what to do and I really need it!!
Can you please give me any idea?

Hi Lui,

this is a common problem when using refilled cartridges.

You can either go into Control Panel --> Printers and Faxes
Right click on the printer and select properties, then look for a maintenance or color section

There should be a setting to ignore the cartridge levels
If this fails look at the solutions here:
