SOURCE: Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges

I have only ever bought (vey expensive) Canon cartridges, and now my MP510 is useless as the brand new black cartridge isn't recognised. I shall also keep away from Canon products in future, back to boring reliable LexMark for me.

SOURCE: Canon MP520 cartridge swap and ink refill

Canon MP520 multifunctional device - deactivation of the ink level counter
1. You can do it only when the printer counter releases the warning message - "the ink cartridge is nearly empty" = yellow warning mark

2. You have to do this procedure four times - for every cartridge one times
3. At the screen you will see three warning messages
- for the first one press "OK"
- for the second and third one press "Yes"
4. The fourth message tells you that you can do the ink level counter deactivation by pressing the "Stop/Reset" button (7) for more than 5 seconds. Do it.


Later you can see another type of warning message at the screen:

In this case you can not follow the previous procedure - there will not be any other warning messages.
Just follow the message on the screen and press the "OK" button (5) and you can print.
Unfortunately - I do not know for how long time it works.

You have to manualy check the ink level and refill (change) the cartridge before it is completely empty! You might brake your warranty!
When you insert the new original ink cartridge, the counter will work properly again.

SOURCE: I forgot how to change ink cartridge on my printer CANON MP520

usually with the pixma range, if you lift the lid to expose the cartridges, the printer will automatically bring the print head along to the opening to allow you to exchange the cartridges, once it does, simply press down on the exposed cart, and remove it from the printer, the new one is then placed in the now vacant slot and gently lift up the edge until it clicks in to place. Close the lid and the printer will do the rest.

Cannon MP520 when printing documents there are lines through some of the text. I have changed the ink cartridge 2 times! What should I do?


The issue is not with the ink cartridge but with the actual print heads. In most (almost all) Canon ink jet prints/multi functions the prints heads are separate from the ink cartridge.
The print head is what guides he ink onto the page, if they become dirty or clogged then you will get lines through images and text or very poor print outs.
You can clean the print heads by using the software that came with the printer and there are some other ways as well.
I tried to paste the instructions from Canons site but they were too long. Use the link below to go to Canon's knowledge base for the MP520 and search for "clean print heads" and follow the instructions that come up.

Canon MP520 Scanner / printer


This is down to a hardware error in the tank itself. Only remedy is to replace the ink tank and not use refilled or copy tanks.

Dear customer,
A lot of people seem to have the same problem with canon.You need to disable the ink level monitors. go to printers, right click ur printer, go to properties, maintenance, view printer status, option and click enable monitor once.Usually this solves the problem.In case it still doesn't work contact ur canon dealer. they'll replace your cartridge for free.

Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges


Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper
but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.
