I changed the ink cartridges, and now it won't print, it prints manually but not from the computer, it says there is no ink but the cartridges are new


You most likely are using aftermarket or refilled cartridges. These will normally not register as full. Here is a link to a procedure that should solve issue. Watch the video and follow the instructions....

How to reset inkje even with new refilled cartridge


Regarding your recent inquiry about the Canon 240 (black) or 241 (color) ink cartridge ink alert/error condition and the inability to print to your Canon MX452 printer, to reset the cartridge ink low/empty alert message condition, depending on your printer model, we suggest you follow the documented procedures below and/or provided on Inkjet411 at the following link. http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1765

Essentially, in most cases, all you need to do is press the 'Stop/Reset' button (triangle symbol inside of a circle) for 5-8 seconds and the ink error ("ink has run out", etc.) indicators should extinguish; two common reset procedures are provided below (please refer to both videos): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1765

Canon 30/31/40/41 - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2709
Canon 50/51 - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2719
Canon 210/210XL/211/211XL - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2728
Canon 240/240XL/240XXL/241/241XL - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2733
Canon 245/245XL/246/246XL - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2740

If you have already attempted the 5-8 second printer reset without success, then refer to WORST CASE SCENARIO section below.


ADDITIONAL NOTES:

NOTE 1: Providing you can still print, you will need to wait until the "ink has run out" message appears on your computer, before activating the 'Stop/Resume' button for 5-8 seconds. However, if printing is not permissible, then please keep reading....

NOTE 2: If you are able to print the internal self test print, this will demonstrate that the ink cartridge is 'at least' partially functioning. If this is the case, then we suggest you continue printing until the software prompts you to press the 'Stop/Reset' button for >5 seconds. For poor print quality performance issues (as you indicated in your inquiry), we suggest you run a nozzle/cartridge clean test from your Canon software, followed by printing our 'Ink Recovery Test' print: http://inkjet411.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Test-Print_CMYK.pdf

NOTE: To rule out connectivity issues, please ensure BOTH carriage/flex cables (point where the cartridge connects to carriage inside the printer) and BOTH ink cartridge rear electrical contact surfaces are thoroughly clean before proceeding: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

      WORST CASE SCENARIO - INTERNAL ELECTRICAL FAILURE OF INK CARTRIDGE:

      If, after performing the suggested 'reset' procedures above, you still have an error condition which prohibits computer/host based printing (or permit copy/scan functions), then the ink cartridge probably has internal electrical damage (micro-electronics failure); such a failure is unrelated to the ink cartridge refilling process. Typically, when the cartridge fails the problem is 'masked' by the ink out/empty condition so it can be difficult to distinguish between the two. Many cartridges eventually do encounter problems or failures, especially after their original ink is gone and they are re-used, and this is often unrelated to the refill process (i.e. typically ~2 years from original manufacturing date). Refer to picture at bottom of this page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1533

      If, following a reset of the printer via the 'Stop/Resume' button, printing is permitted but the 'Ink Low' indicator continues to be lit then one of the inks cartridges may be suffering from marginal internal electrical performance - a potential failure of the cartridge may eventually occur which will prevent printing.


      ---
      CAUTION: Be advised, the use of Canon compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from overseas) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures (due to incompatible ink formulations which may contain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of Canon original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!

      If you do need to purchase a new ink cartridge (to save on ink costs), we suggest you try a USA remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating and come with a 1-year warranty.

      Alternatively, if you are interested in the top 'refill friendly inkjet printer models', our suggested list is posted on-line and our internal labs have verified there are no issues (in ink compatibility or color output) with all of these models: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=3585

Reset ink level on canon mg2120 after ink refill


The following procedures may be used to reset the Canon printer ink level monitoring following the installation of a refilled Canon 30, 31, 40, 41, 50, 51, 210, 211, 240, or 241 integrated ink cartridges. In most cases, the error/alert will need to be cleared to enable printing. Ink waste container reset procedures are also provided below.
NOTE: for multi-cartridge installation, the procedure(s) may need to be repeated twice.

For PGI-5, PGI-9PBK, CLI-8, PGI-220 CLI-221 PGI-225 CLI-226 PGI-250 CLI-251 Cartridges: These are new Canon cartridges which have an embedded chip on each cartridge. If you just refill the ink, the printer will still reads the cartridge as empty. You have two choices:

Purchase a "refillable cartridge" from www.asapinkjets.com
BCH or other sellers. These refillable cartridges have an auto-reset chip (non OEM) and will reset automatically.
Use a chip resetter (e.g., search Canon + model number + resetter on eBay). Follow the instruction below to refill your original cartridge, and use the resetter to reset the chip.

Canon mp 530 error u043 cant get rid of it


It is registering a empty ink cartridge. If you had the cartridge refilled instea of replacing the cartridge that is what happened. The chip on the cartridge wont register the refilled ink and tells the printer it is empty.

E5 problem


E5, says the ink cartridges are the wrong type, not properly installed, or not installed at all. You can't refill those without replacing the chip or resetting the chip. Many refilled cartridges just don't work...

I am trying to reset the empty ink cartridge error code on a Canon mp-530 multifunction printer after installing a refilled a refilled black ing cartridge


Hi, did you refill yourself or did you buy a refilled cartridge. If you purchased a refilled cartridge and the chip is missing, you will need to take the chip off your old cartridge and install on the refilled cartridge.
