Not to be to forward but because of the low cost of printers i would go by a new one. Replacing the head could be just as expensive as buying a new one. The reason I am giving this advise is from what you are saying you possibly could have a short. With the ink spill it could of ran down on some of your circuits. the other possibility is it gummed up. cleaning the rails and head will not fix this problem. I have worked on several types of printers and when there is a ink spill it gets all over everything.When heavy ink dries it turns into a sticky almost like glue substance and it could be gumming your motor, your belts , even your jet nozzles. It is just better and cheaper to buy a new printer.

I am trying to scan a document, however the black ink is empty. It only shows the error message that I should refill my ink. Shouldn't I still be able to scan documents?


Must be using PG830 or PG40 50?

For Canon, if either color or black cartridge is empty or out of ink, "Scanner" doesn't work.

That's why your scanner is not properly working.

It's all connected... That's Canon.

Are you refill your cartridge by yourself?
Try "ROADINK" inkjet refill kit. No drill or sharp needles are needed.
It's not only easy to refill, you can have quality printing.

Check out my youtube video, will find how easy refill can be done.

Canon Pixma MX320 - How To Disable Ink Cartridge Error Detection..


How to fix the printing problem when Canon PIXMA MX320 series detected the errors in your cartridge?

I have a canon Pixma328 and have been refilling ink for black and color cartridges for quite sometime now. The cartridges are close but after I drilled a small hole on the top part of the cartridge using a small screw, there I find a way to refill the ink that I bought from an ink refill store. The procedure needs extra care, not to touch the contact point (copper) because its sensitive and not to damage the inner part of the cartridge when I insert the needles of the syringe used for transferring ink.

After refilling the cartridge, the next thing to do is to reset the cartridge. This will clear your printer from displaying common printer errors like U053, U051 and U052. The importance of the "reset the cartridge" procedure is to avoid the printer from detecting your cartridge as reused one. The steps below is recommended to do after refilling an ink cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer
2. Press and hold the STOP/RESET button
3. Press and hold Power ON button
4. While holding the Power ON button, release the STOP/RESET button
5. While holding still the Power ON button, press twice the STOP/RESET button
6. Release the Power ON button
7. Wait until it display an "idle" message. It will take about a minute.
8. When "idle" appear, open the top cover to expose the cartridges.
9. Lift up the cover for cartridge holder and take out both the black and color cartridges
10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer
11. Return the top cover and turn on the printer again
12. After the printer initialize, return the cartridges.

What happened when ink ran out from a refilled cartridge and the printer detected it?
The printer will display an error U162 or U163. All functions of the all-in-one printer will stop and your printer will not work. The next thing you will know is you are in the front of a computer shop and buy a genuine canon cartridge.
But wait, there is still a way to fix this. Reset it again using a different procedure. Reset the detections of reusable cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer an turn it on again
2. After the printer initialize try to copy or print. The error will appear.
3. When the error is displayed on the display panel of the printer, Press and Hold the STOP/RESET button and wait until it self restart.
4. Release the STOP/RESET button the the printer is restarting.
5. Wait for a few seconds and the pending print jobs will commence.

You can print as long as you want, refill the ink as long as you want and save a lot of money from buying a genuine canon cartridge by just following this simple tips for Canon Pixma MX320 and/or Canon Pixma MX328 all-in-one printer

For those who have replaced their ink cartridge before try to use that again and do follow this tip to make that work again.

The black inc cartridge is full, but the printer is not printing black. We tried the cleaning function. The ink refill company states the problem lies with the printer. Can you assist me?


try another cartridge if it works properly then the refilled cartridge has problem or the problem is with the printer.ask that ink refill company to test and give you one more cartridge of same number to check in your printer.also try to clean the brown dotted circuit in your printer and cartridge both with moist tissue before doing everything.

Refilling ink cartridges


hp74a.jpg HP #74 Cartridge Refill Instructions
Black cartridge

Instructions
1. Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill.
2. Peal off the top label. hp74b.jpg
3. Fill the syringe with 20ml. of black ink.
4. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into any hole (they all go to the same sponge, HP just used the same color mold for the black ink cartridges).
5. When finished, replace the top label or leave it off (it will make no difference in the printing).
6. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.
Or print the following pages:
http://www.refillinstructions.com/black.htm for Black

For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge.
A Refill Kit should include Ink plus the following:
One 30cc Syringe

Black ink cartidge


If a black cartridge will not print, with no error messages, it is probably th printhead. Clean it with proper cleaning solution. Refilled ones if done yourself or by someone else, can also have air bubbles, Try blowing down refill hole with tissue under the cartridge to stop ink spills. Also, if you press a folder non scented wipe under the cartridge firmly, you should get a solid little black line or impression. This will tell you if the ink is getting down ok. Try reprinting.

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.
