Firstly I suspect you are not using genuine cartridge or you have refilled the cartridge.
To fix this you need to disable the ink checking procedure.

Do you know that low ink or ink has run out message appears once cartridge empty. If you want to use refill ink in that cartridge then you need to deactivate ink level to get your printer run as usual. Check the following tips to fix low ink error message in case of refill ink usage. Below some methods to deactivate ink level detection function for some models due to its similarity.
METHOD I:
Press RESUME/CANCEL button once

Thanks, I had to hold it down until it printed off the page we wanted to test print. we refilled our cannon cartridges.

Another way to clear the error message:
1. Disconnect the power cable
2. Connect it while holding down the power button
3. With the power button still down, press twice the "Cancel/Stop" red button
4. Release the power button
5. The printes turns into a kind of factory mode...(wait for about 10 seconds, utils it says "Idle")
6. Press the ">" (next to the "OK" button) once."Shipping Mode 3"
7. Press the "OK" button.
8. Press "OK" again for "Without cleaning"
9. A test page will print..
10. Open the cover, like you are about to change the cartridges.
11. Disconnect the power cable again.
12. Take out both cartridges.
13. Close the cover.
14. Connect the power cable once again.
15. Turn the printer on.
16. Now just put the cartridges back...
 
On my Mx308, the printer does not print the test page and stop. I just press cancel and pull out the plug and put it back. The it works.

SOURCE: pixma mx310: error message check

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

I have canon pixma 310 its say chech ink u163 what thats mean


Good Day Sandip920!

Error U163 means, the printer detected that your black ink cartridge has been refilled with new ink.
It is very easy to clear this error and keep your printer printing.

How?
1. Turn on your printer.
2. When error U163 appears, press and hold the STOP/RESET buton on the printer. Hold it down until the printer self restart and initialize.
3. if after U163 is cleared off and appear another error, U162, press and hold again the STOP/RESET button and wait till printer self restart and initialize again.

Hope this helps!

Ive replaced black ink cart but it doesnt work,still the message check ink u163 on th LCD.thank you


Either the new ink is a generic cartridge and not reset properly, or one of the other inks is empty. Your display should tell you which ink is empty. U163 just says that one of the inks is empty.
