Yes you can reset the chips, but you need to buy a resetter. A quality resetter is about $80. I would recommend buying refills from Cartridge World. They have good prices, a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and they take care of the mess of refilling and the expense of the resetter.

Refilled Canon PIXMA MP830 and still get ink levels are low! how do you reset levels

Whoever filled this cartridge for you did not reset the chip. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and our chip resetter was about $100. I would not purchase from that particular refiller again because they have displayed a lack of knowledge about their product. If you buy from Cartridge World, they always reset the chips for you.

Have replaced cartridge with one of my refilled cartridges in a canon PIXMA MP830, and am getting an alarm U071,that reads "more than one ink tank of the following color is installed". This is of course...

Printers have a mechanism to detect refilled cartridges. By default it does not accept refilled ones. But there's a work around. Have a set of two (preferably 3) cartridges , refill and cycle them. This way the printer wont be able to detect that you have inserted a refilled cartridge.

The cartridges must a reset chips in order for the printer to accept them. I had a similar problem.
Always make sure when buying refilled/refurbished cartridges that the chips have been reset.

I hope this helps.

here are the instructions:

I pour up to 15ml. in PGI-5BK (the large black) and 10ml. in the other ones (small black + color).
You can seal the hole that you make with silicone and put a piece of adhesive tape over.
Also when you remove the orange seal, leave the cartridge for a couple of minutes, cause it usually leaks a bit. You can put it on some tissue, that will absorb the excess ink.

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.
