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.........

Sometime, if you put refilled cartridge, you may see some error such as E5 (cartridge is not readable) If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK". Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good. For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video. And will see how easy ink refill can be done.
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.

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.
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.
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.
"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!
