Error U163


I can then help you with your specific problem.

Error Code U163 (Ink Cartridge Empty or Low)

First of all, Yes, this is a common problem.

When you open your printer up, by lifting the Scan Cover, you will see lights blinking for the cartridge that is low or is empty.

1.) A lamp blinking once every three seconds means your cartridge is low.
2.) A lamp blinking once every second means your cartridge is empty.

Using your printer with an empty ink cartridge is capable of harming your printer, according to Canon Engineers.

Until such time as you can replace the cartridge you can use the method described below to temporarily turn off the error message.

Press and Hold the Stop/Reset button for 6 full seconds 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.

How do i install the black ink cartrage


Hi!
Follow these steps in order for you to install the any ink on your canon Pixma mx310:
1) Make sure that your printer is turned on. 2) Lift the scanner at the front. It will rotate towards the back and it will give you a view of where the ink cartridges will be. 3) Once the print cartridges are in its final location you can push down the front of each cartridge that you will replace and pull it out. 4) To place in a new cartridge place the new one in its respective slot and this time push the front up to lock it in place. 5) close the printer top or place the scanner back in its place.
That is all you need to do.

I have never had to change the ink cartridges till now and can't find the manual. The site says that they don't have a manual for the MX310 and I can't figure it out.

Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) with both hands.

Pull the scanning unit support down into place.

The cartridges will move into place.

Remove the cartridge.

Take the new cartridge from the package.

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?

Worldvet
