    We bought a new canon iP 1300 PIXMA printer about 1 or 2 months ago. Initially it printed good result. However, for about 2 weeks now no printing comes out. The alert message that it has low ink has been popping up every time we print.

    Hope you can help us.

    Thank you.

First understand the printer does not 'Read' the cartridge.
It cannot- It says low ink based on the number of sheets passed through the machine.
You need to figure our how to 'Reset' the counters.
Try entr you camera make model
see what you get

    You need to examine the Fixyuorownp irnter site more closeley
    The repair Kit reference is an Advert.
    Look for a Window where you can enter your printer make and model this then will lead to a forum page where the queston can be put.
    If the cartridge has a chip fitted ,this needs to be zeroed.
    There are devices to do this
    Do a google for here is one such

    Fix yourownprinter does rate this problem
    In the field type you printer make and model number and persevere with your search.
    Also get onto Canon support.
    You do not of course tell them you are using third party inks
    Simply relate the problem.

Canon W6400 error message E02525 mean?

If you used a non-cannon refill, the cartridge may not have the microcontroller inside to tell the printer the ink level.

Use replacement cartridges from Cannon or SOPHIA GLOBAL (available from Amazon or ebay).

Cannon MP220 displays colour ink vol unknown

For the Canon Pixma MP220, I kept getting a message saying "Col Ink Vol Unknown" after refilling and replacing a cartridge. After reading some of the other responses it appears as though Canon cartridges contain internal chips that prevent you from using them after they have been refilled. However, I tried a few things and this is what worked for me.

1. Insert your refilled Canon cartridge like normal, close the lid.
2. The Error message "Col Ink Vol Unknown" should still appear.
3. Use the "Menu" button to scroll to "Maintenance" (press "Menu" 8 times to find it), then press "OK" to conduct a "Nozzle Check" and a coloured test will print out.
4. The Error message will still appear but you will be able to print using colour AND with black and white. For some silly reason the Canon Pixma MP220 won't print using black and white if there is no coloured ink...

Hope this helps!

How do i refill the ink myself cannon mp520

You need to reset or replace the ink level monitoring chip on these cartridges for refills to work. I know some refill kit sellers don't like to mention this to people before they buy the ink. Otherwise, I would recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because it can be messy to fill these cartridges and they always reset the chips for you.

Low ink lamp staying on cannon mp190

The Canon rep told you the correct information. The printer companies have included circuits on their cartridges that will not allow you to refill them. The printer reads the code and knows that the cartridge already ran out of ink. To date no one has figured out a hack for this issue.

Canon MP180 Ink Problem

lads ye're all I work in an 'ink place' and the u051 fault is a fault indicating that the offending cartridge is electrically dead, this is caused by the clever little program in the canon machine that writes info to the cartridge to make it'dead' so it cant be re-used ! possible solution is to get refilled before printer thinks it empty !!
