I have Canon multifunction MX310 I was using


press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.Canon do not like you to use refills and generic carts so the function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled

The ink tanks have been replaced(refilled canon tanks), but the printer is still showing default setting ,with the orange warning light flashing 15 times sayingb there is no ink


there is a recognition chip on the ink cartridges, which is used as a counter for ink usage. if you re-fill the cartridges, the chip is NOT automatically reset. normally you can buy a small rest-tool in the same shop where you bought the re-fill kit.

How to reset printer to recognize refilled cartridges


Reset is not needed. Just turn off your printer power supply and turn it on. It will automatically detect the newly installed cartridge, provided the original compactible cartridge is installed.

My CANON iP4300 printer does not print and has a yellow light that flashes 13 times. What does that mean??


This according to the user's guide:
The remaining ink level cannot be correctly detected.
Replace the ink tank and close the Top Cover.
Printing with an ink tank that was once empty may damage the printer.
If you want to continue printing in this condition, you need to release the function for detecting the remaining ink level. Press and hold the RESUME/CANCEL button for at least 5 seconds, and then release it.
* With this operation, releasing the function for detecting the remaining ink level is memorized. Please be advised that Canon shall not be liable for any printer malfunction or damage caused by refilled ink tanks.

Hp 5150 deskjet says that it is low on color ink


The low ink warning is actually normal for remanufactured cartridges. Since the printer cannot detect the amount of ink in the cartridge, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink. Unfortunately, when the cartridges are remanufactured, the chip is unable to be reset. The prints should still be the same quality. You can either press the "Resume" or "OK" button to continue printing, or go into your printer settings and manually disable the ink level indiactor.

Trying to reset chip on refilled ink tank on CANON MP830


Looks like Fillserv.com has a chip resetter for the CLI8 color cartridges, but I don't know if that unit will reset the big black PGBK cartridge in the MP830.

Alarm light is lit -


Ok my printer is giving me the U140 message saying that ink tank cannot be recognized. The new ink tank is Cannon (not a off brand or refill). i think it is a problem with the chip reader port inside the printer not the ink tank chip. I feel this way because if you switch around the yellow and black 8 tanks, the printer accepts them without error.. soo if it was the ink cartridge i could be able to swap the black with the magenta and it should read it.

Refilling Ink in Canon Pixma MP830


Hello, I found this in a repair manual for the MP830. summery is to press and hold the stop/reset button for 5 or more seconds. I copied the info from the manual too. The remaining ink amount unknown. [1683] (Applicable ink tank icon) The remaining level of the following ink cannot be correctly detected. An ink tank which has once been empty is installed. Replace the applicable ink tank with a new one. Printing with a once-empty or refilled ink tank can damage the print head. If printing is continued without replacing the refilled ink tank, press the Stop/Reset button for 5 sec. or longer to record the use of a refilled ink tank. Note: After the above operation, the function to detect the remaining ink amount is disabled.
