I found that if you just hold down the 'stop' button with the little red icon on it for a few seconds, it resets the ink. But the cartridge has to have the error message that says it is completely out of ink, not just low on ink. Hold it down for a few seconds until it starts processing. It will check the cartridge, and then it worked for me!

I have installed refilled cartridges but it still says "ink is running low", how do I make the printer accept that the cartridges are full?


That will happen with all refill cartridges on many Canon printers (I own 3) I have attempted several types of refills on the MP620, MP480, and the MP610 and none have worked yet, I went to my local cartridge world and their tech there confirmed it. I believe they're trying to get a solution to reset the chip on the cartridge but as far as I know nothing is available yet.
Good luck

Loaded new color ink cartridge to my canon printer pixma 480


Use the wizard to replace the ink cartridge. The main idea is that the software must "reboot" and restart measuring ink levels and the only safe and easy way to do that is by using the wizard.

I have the Canon MP 480 I have an error code of 5200. This occured after we changed the ink cartridge. I have turned it off, reloaded software and still get the same error.



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Where is the reset button? I've refilled the cartridge and it still says it's empty (canon MP480)


this model uses a chip resetter avalible from most people who mfg. refill kits.google the brand & make of printer and see if you find a reset procedure. there are three different resets on cannon printers.if you do override it you will not be able to see the ink levels but if you reset the cartridge you will see all as a new cartridge.
