Canon Pixa iP1600 "an ink


Try taking it out and putting it back in again. Reseat the cartridge. Also unplug the power to the printer and plug it back in. See if it will work then. It may just need to be power reset.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Ink Low message after installing new cartridge


There is no way to actually "reset" the counter. IF your MP170 has a RESUME/CANCEL button, Press and hold this button for about 7 seconds to bypass the counter (The PAGE FEED button will work for some other models). If your printer doesn’t have this button, you may bypass the counter by turning the printer OFF. Now hold down the RESET and turn the printer ON. Keep holding the RESET until the printer boots and initializes. When the display says, "INK VOL UNKNOWN" you may release the RESET and begin printing in the usual manner. You may need to start the printer in this manner each time, or the printer may remember this setting. Canon was experimenting during this time so some of the same models have different buttons and bypass tricks. Hope this helps.

I hope this helps you.

The waste ink collector/tank is nearly full


The ink collector should be found underneath where the cartridges normally rests. Put some tissue paper on the ink padand let it absorb the ink. You might have to repeat the procedure a few times to get rid of all the ink.

Ink problems col vol unknown and wont print


Something that worked for me, I opened the Conon MX310. took out both cartridges, and for 10 seconds I held the Reset. put the cartridges back in, closed the lid, and again, for another 10 seconds held the reset. SLOW seconds. this reset, ink levels recognised,, and it's working as it should be.

5100


I had the same problem too. Brand new unit and 5100 error comes on after power up. There is nothing jaming the ink cartiage, and it only moves a little bit to the left then jams back to the right. I can't even load in new ink cartiages. It's going back to the shop today.

Canon MP180 Ink Problem


lads ye're all I work in an 'ink place' and the u051 fault is a fault indicating that the offending cartridge is electrically dead, this is caused by the clever little program in the canon machine that writes info to the cartridge to make it'dead' so it cant be re-used ! possible solution is to get refilled before printer thinks it empty !!
