Hi,

some cartridges are charged up ( have a chip fitted to them )
If the chip is not charged to tell the printer it,s full of ink. this will cause the problem.
have you tried. unplugging the printer from the mains. then powering it back up.
also try using the printers own software to add new cartridges et,c.
you could also try re-installing the printers drivers/software if you have it,s instalation disk.

Ho do i know which ink cartridge is low


Hi
the easiest way is to send a print job to printer. If any cartridge is empty, the printer should refuse to print and display an error message. This should indicate which cartridge is empty/not recognised - with a red X above the empty colour. Another way is to go to 'printer properties' then 'maintenance' page and click on 'Status monitor' button.
Hope this helps & good luck with it.

You need both cartridges. It is a paradox that you need both cartridges to even scan on the mfp,s

The printer's lying to me


The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

Pixma mx310: error message check ink u163 will not delete after replacing colour inkn cartridge cl 41. unable to use printer.


Ink has run out. Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover). If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing,press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the inkcartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink outcondition. The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled. Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing.The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing iscontinued under the ink out condition.


Thanks for using Fixya

Black Printer cartridge


It will tell you the colour is low, regardless of the format in which you are printing. I don't believe Canon provide a way for you to disable this for their printer range, so you'll need to put in the new colour cartridge to get rid of this error. (you should however, be able to print whilst receiving this message)
