There is a little piece that sticks out in the front, you have to lift that up and the compartment should open

How to reset lexmark c540 toner low?


Hi there

Open the ink cartridge door above the paper output tray on your Lexmark printer.

Push the release tab behind the ink cartridge to remove it. Pull the cartridge straight out of the ink compartment.

Pull the protective tape off the bottom of the new ink cartridge. Insert the new cartridge into the compartment and press it back until it locks into the compartment.

Close the ink cartridge door. Push the arrow button on the keypad to select either "Standard" or "High Yield" based on the type of cartridge you installed. Press "Select" when the proper type displays.

Hello,

Please follow below instruction. Otherwise, visit this link. Link
We hope we have provided you a solution to your problem.

Thank you.

The Canon Pixma Mp160 is an all-in-one printer, scannermag-glass_10x10.gif and fax machine. Replacing the cartridge in the printer requires little effort. Make sure to use the correct replacement cartridges for your MP160; installing the wrong cartridge type could prevent your printer from working or cause it to fail. Use caution to prevent ink spilling or dripping on you.

Step 1 Identify the cartridge that requires replacement. Press the "Copy" button to display the ink level. "BLK" indicates your black ink cartridge; "COL" indicates your color cartridge. If the display is only one bar (or none), then the cartridge should be replaced.

Step 2 Open the top compartment (scan lid) on your Canon printer. Pull back the compartment support legs to hold it open.

Step 3 Put on gloves, and then push the cartridge down to unlock it. Pull it toward you to remove it from the printer.

Step 4 Remove the tape strip from the replacement ink cartridge. Insert the new ink cartridge (black on the left, color on the right) at an angle, with the gold circuit facing down and towards the front of the printer. Push the cartridge up to lock it in place.

Step 5 Repeat the process if you are replacing multiple cartridges. Close the scan lid when you are finished. If the "Low Ink" warning does not go away, then turn the printer off, wait a few minutes and turn it on again.

The printer is basically a Lexmark and uses Lexmark cartridges. Most places such as Staples will have a chart to show you which cartridges to use.

The drivers for this printer are readily available for free download.

PARTIAL RESET:-Unplug the printer power cable while its ON, press and hold # and 3 button and connect the Power cord while holding.Wait until the ON light flashes, then release the buttons.

----(for below reset cartridges must be removed out)---------

SEMI_FULL RESET:-Remove the Ink Cartridges, then unplug the printer power cable while its ON, press and hold # and 6 button and connect the Power cord while holding.Wait until the ON light flashes,or wait for 20 seconds then release the button.If the printer goes off don't worry release the button and Push the ON button.


FULL NVM RESET:-Take the Ink Cartridges out, Unplug the printer power cable while its ON, press and hold OK and CANCEL button and connect the Power cord while holding the buttons.keep Holding the buttons until the printer goes off ,release the button and Push the ON button.

I Need to Print


Sadly in a word, 'No'.

Here is the exact answer from Brother:

Your Brother machine is designed to stop ALL printing operations
(printing from the pc, printing received faxes and printing copies or reports) when any of the ink cartridges are empty. This is to ensure the life of the print head and maintain premium print quality. If the unit were to continue printing, print jobs and cleaning cycles would suction air from the dry cartridge and damage the printhead. Even if you print in black only or change the print settings to MONO or GRAYSCALE to avoid printing in color, the programmed cleaning cycles would still suction the dry cartridge, because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles.

The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge or cartridges.

While memory is available, black and white faxes will continue to be received into memory. If a color fax is being received, the Brother machines HANDSHAKE will request the fax be sent as black and white fax.

All faxes received into memory will automatically print once the ink cartridge is replaced.

NOTE: Brother strongly recommends that customers do not use generic ink or refill their Brother ink cartridges. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability since the ink formulation in genuine Brother ink cartridges prevent smearing and clogging of the print head. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that was caused by the use of unauthorized third party ink and/or cartridges.

In Use/Memory FAX after changing ink cartridge


I had the same problem - it would not print the faxes as the machine would not recognize the generic cartridge - I had to get the official Canon cartridge to get the faxes to print out of memory.

Problem with fax Memory


This could be very simple. Check to be EXTRA sure that your USB line is NOT plugged into the fax line. (There's a little phone icon). That's what happened to me....boy am i dumb!
