Question about Canon Pixma MP450 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon mp45 printer refuses to print., using refilled cartridges.

I have the above printer. The ink ran out, so i thought to save money and help the environment I would purchase some refilled cartridges. The new ones are original canon cartridges, just refilled. When first put into the machine they worked ok, apart from not showing how much ink was left in the cartridge. However, now when I turn on the printer it gives me the uo51 error message, and the computer screen gives me usb001 and tells me the cartridges are not recognised. If I can not find an answer to get this thing working, you will see it next week on Ebay. Heres hoping someone can help me - pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese.........

Canon ip2700 after refill of Black cartridge ink status still shows 'low' and print is very poor - breaks, incomplete - as ink running out. How to reset ink level, or to disable warning, and to get print...


For your ip2700, even if you reset your refilled cartridge, they are not going to be usable.
After 4~5 times of color refill, you will see e5 error that cartridge is not readable anymore.

So you need to replace your cartridge with new one somehow.

I have changed the ink cartridge on my canon mp272 but it keeps saying there is no ink in it


Well have u used refilled cartridge?

It seems like you are facing error called "e5" which cartridge is not readable from printer.

This happens in Canon printer, especially for color cartridge.
In this case, the only way you can do is replace your cartridge with new one.

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
At least you can use your cartridge 4~5 times of refills and can save more than $100.

Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.

MY CANON PIXMA HAS STOPPED PRINTING COLORS I HAVD DONT THE MAINTENANCE STEPS AND PURCHASED NEW CARTRIDGES STILL NO COLORS PLEASE HELP BOB


The next step in repairing your unit after replacing the cartridges, is to replace the print head.

If you are refilling your catridges, there are many inks out there that actually eat up the nozzels in the print head.

If you need to refill, be aware that you may not end up saving money.

I use a Bulk ink system that uses ink that does no damage to the print head.

Good luck!!!

Color ink cartridge does not print in full colors


Canon printers do not like the refilled ink cartridges. After having ruined a few printers trying to "save" money. I went back to genuine Canon ink and have never had a problem since.

Canon ip 1800 refilled ink says ink has run out, it's full


Here's how to reset the printer so it doesn't give you the out-of-ink message:   1)  Hold down the flashing yellow RESUME button for almost 1 minute 2) Open the cover 3) Release the cartridge(s) (#30 is black, #31 is color), and then reinstall cartridge(s).  Close cover. 4) Turn printer OFF (I had to wait and try this numerous times as green light was flashing & it wouldn't shut off.  Wait, then press OFF again. ) 5) Turn printer back ON, and cheer when it prints.

Printer saying refilled bci3e is empty, when it is actually full


This is a very common issue with refilled ink cartridges. The fact is that you have a MP730. The cartridges have an eprom chip loaded into the cartridge which blows once the cartridge is empty. Refilling it as a general rule does not work. The best and only solution to your problem is to pop out to your stationery supplier and purchase a genuine canon cartridge.
As a side not, the ink inside the cartridge is covered by a patent held by canon. it means that no other supplier can use this particular grade of ink. The use on non genuine ink will destroy your printhead and make future use of your unit much less than its normal life expectancy.

There is no way to reset the ink levels on the new canon cartridges. you need to turn off the ink status monitor :(

You'll know it's time to refill again when your printing starts to fade, streak, or discolor.

It might be ok but in general it is not suggested to refill your ink cartridges. Third party ink is never as good, may be to think or too runny then the Canon ink. It would definitely shorten the life of your printer. Look for high capacity print cartridges if you're looking to save a little money.

Canon MP460 cartridge error


"Verify that you are using Canon(TM) cartridges. The technology has progressed to where they have modified the ink to be identified by their printers. You cannot currently use refill cartridge inks to refill Canon cartridges. If that is not your issue, then try removing and replacing the cartridge(s)and reset the ink level indicator.
Lets hope for the best!
Regards,
Eagle"

Honestly.. There is absolutely no way for Those Canon printers to "look inside" or "Detect" the formulation of ink inside the cartridge...

Canon CL-31, CL-41, CL-51, CL-52 Print cartridges have the highest electronic _Failure_ rate of anything other inkjet cartridge on the market. Canon is aware of this. Replacing the Cartridge is the only sure-fire way of fixing this.

*sometimes the printer will tell you its the color cartridge, when in fact its the black cartridge. its advised to replace them both during these error messages.. it'll save you a trip, and the customer service rep's head. haha"

Using an Aftermarket or "re-filled" canon original cartridge is a sustainable resource for anyone looking to re-use an end-user item, and save money in this "tied-selling" market.

I proved you wrong by replacing my inkjets with Oringinal Canon PG-40 black, and CL-41 color cartridge. I ran them until they were empty. Bypassed the Ink Metering System explained to me through the canon software provided during the printer installation, and continued to print with them until they were 110% bone dry empty, laying absolutely no ink on the page. this took approx. 3 hours from perfect start, to finish.

If "canon printers have progressed so much as to distinguish formulations of ink" then.. this canon sure was the PICK of the litter. it continued to print *** as the day it was purchased, while not laying a single droplet of ink on the page.

get a life. stop dissing the aftermarket with your un-supported facts!

reguards,
