Question about Canon PIXMA MP495 InkJet Printer
I refilled black cartridge by myself. but still show low toner .how to override gauge level at window 8?
Hi every one,refilling a catiradge does not need specialist,but it needs carfullness,all y have to do is the following:1-take out the cateridge and remove the label paper sticker ,a hole can be seen.2- bring a medical injection needle,fill it up to 3cc and then inject it slowly into the cateridge then close the hole tightly(so as not to leak during printing).3-clean the cateridge place with a soft tissue untill there will be no more color in the spongy place.4- place the cateridge then connect to your computer and plague in,some times the cateridge indicater blub indicates that there is no cateridge,just open the cover ,take the cateridge out in place it again ,or there is a triangle buttom indicator with yellow color.hold the botom for ten seconds.it restarts and works normally,PS:the cateridge show that there is no ink in the cateridge.it is ok ,just use it and later (after a month refill it)this depends on the useing of the printer. Hoooooope it works .

I suggest if someone is not specialized in refilling ink in an empty cartridge, to get an specialist to the job that they do best to save you time/effort/money.
The cartridge has sensitive pins that the printer detects to determine the amount of ink inside the cartridge; other than this the ink may not have been flowing to the printing mechanism correctly indicating a low level. Try running printer maintenance procedure and replace the cartridge. If the printer indicates a low level, you may need to get a new printer cartridge.

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.  (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.

This is a common problem with compatible cartridges where the chip on the cartridge is faulty, missing or is not making contact correctly with the printer cartridge connectors. The first thing to do is make sure that the plastic seal has been removed from the chip and that it is free of any residual adhesive etc. You can clean this with a cotton bud soaked in isopropyl alcohol or VCR tape head cleaner. DO NOT USE SURGICAL SPIRIT or any other cleanser as this will either leave a residue itself or damage the plastics and rubbers in the printer.
Once cleaned reinsert the cartridge and try again. If this is still unsuccessful the best solution is to return the cartridges to the vendor where you bought them and get another brand of cartridges or use genuine original cartridges. When you find a reliable manufacturer of cartridges, stay with them. Don’t forget to clean the print head and realign & recalibrate the printer at every cartridge change for optimum results. Also make sure that you use high quality paper for the best images results.

SOURCE: How to Override Ink Level Gauge
I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled (the absolute worst possible choice) or third party cartridges (2nd. Worst possible choice) 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 or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

SOURCE: Canon ip2700 after refill of
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.
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.

Replace Toner with gen cartridge.
Or Take cartridge back as faulty after checking that it was opened and installed correctly.
Check display on printer for indications that maybe it needs one of the 3 colour toners indicators are Y,C or M
K is black
