Mg3170 ink refilled but doesn't work

I have refilled the ink but the computer stated that there is no ink and on top of the printer there is light flashing with 051 which meant that there is a problem with the ink but I don't see any problem. What should I do

SOURCE: printing

Try this:

a) Click on the "menu" button, until you reach the 7. User Data
b) It will also say "1. Ink Volume" as it is the first option
c) Press Ok
d) Afterwards, press the + button until you reach to an option saying "Inkcount reset" and press Ok
e) I think it'll reset and tell you if you've changed or need to reset your ink volume data, click yes.
f) Im guessing it'll restart ad you won't have this problem anymore

If that doesn't work, try this

Turn your printer off then turn it back on after 2-5mins. It worked on my 3rd try, hoped it helped.

Hello, my printer is able to scan and copy but it doesn't print. Both the cartridge lights are blinking but their is sufficient ink the cartridge. Can you help? I have Cannon MP190. Thanks

If the lights are blinking for the cartridges, then there is not enough ink.
Get new ones or refilled ones and try it again.

Or there may be enough ink, but the electronics on the carts are not working, could be a short, or an open circuit.

I put a refilled black ink in my HP PSXçC

the problem with the refilled ink is that the ink is NO WHERE near as good as the original HP ink and the ink cartridge is now damaged - just replace the cartridge with a new HP cartridge and you should be OK!

How to reset ink cartridges after refilling them

Go to the following website and download the freeware InkMonitor 2.1.2: You have to add data about new cartridge. HP60 ink cartridge information, 200 pages per cartridge. This works great for me. It gives you a history of everything printed. This way you can gauge when its time to refill your cartridges. You must refill before they run out of ink or you will burn out the print heads and have to replace them.

Epson Photo Stylus 950 not functioning

when ever you want to refill ink make sure, that the ink you refill decompressed for about 30min before you fix it into the printer.
Another thing is that you uninstall the software of the printer and reinstall again, and check the power supply of the printer is working perfectly.

Flashing ink refill light

Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
