For many Canon printers, you can clear the U162 error by pressing and holding the Stop/Resume button on the printer. (You may need to turn off the printer and turn it back on. Then press and hold this button when the error appears on the LCD screen.)

This error can mean that the ink system is having problems pulling ink through to the nozzles or that the printer believes that the cartridge is empty/too old. You can try a deep cleaning To access this, press the Menu button several times until Maintenance is displayed. Then use the left or right arrows to navigate to Deep Cleaning and press OK. Wait until the process is complete (1 1/2 minutes). The second issue is sometimes related to the printer's firmware program that checks the cartridge identification information.

I hope this helps.

Canon Pixma MX320 - How To Disable Ink Cartridge Error Detection..


How to fix the printing problem when Canon PIXMA MX320 series detected the errors in your cartridge?

I have a canon Pixma328 and have been refilling ink for black and color cartridges for quite sometime now. The cartridges are close but after I drilled a small hole on the top part of the cartridge using a small screw, there I find a way to refill the ink that I bought from an ink refill store. The procedure needs extra care, not to touch the contact point (copper) because its sensitive and not to damage the inner part of the cartridge when I insert the needles of the syringe used for transferring ink.

After refilling the cartridge, the next thing to do is to reset the cartridge. This will clear your printer from displaying common printer errors like U053, U051 and U052. The importance of the "reset the cartridge" procedure is to avoid the printer from detecting your cartridge as reused one. The steps below is recommended to do after refilling an ink cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer
2. Press and hold the STOP/RESET button
3. Press and hold Power ON button
4. While holding the Power ON button, release the STOP/RESET button
5. While holding still the Power ON button, press twice the STOP/RESET button
6. Release the Power ON button
7. Wait until it display an "idle" message. It will take about a minute.
8. When "idle" appear, open the top cover to expose the cartridges.
9. Lift up the cover for cartridge holder and take out both the black and color cartridges
10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer
11. Return the top cover and turn on the printer again
12. After the printer initialize, return the cartridges.

What happened when ink ran out from a refilled cartridge and the printer detected it?
The printer will display an error U162 or U163. All functions of the all-in-one printer will stop and your printer will not work. The next thing you will know is you are in the front of a computer shop and buy a genuine canon cartridge.
But wait, there is still a way to fix this. Reset it again using a different procedure. Reset the detections of reusable cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer an turn it on again
2. After the printer initialize try to copy or print. The error will appear.
3. When the error is displayed on the display panel of the printer, Press and Hold the STOP/RESET button and wait until it self restart.
4. Release the STOP/RESET button the the printer is restarting.
5. Wait for a few seconds and the pending print jobs will commence.

You can print as long as you want, refill the ink as long as you want and save a lot of money from buying a genuine canon cartridge by just following this simple tips for Canon Pixma MX320 and/or Canon Pixma MX328 all-in-one printer

For those who have replaced their ink cartridge before try to use that again and do follow this tip to make that work again.

I bought a new Cannon PIXMA MX320 with no ink cartridge, the manual says that it requires PG-210 & CL-211, while the cannon site says it works with the PG-510 and CL-511. so my question is do they both...


Hi,

Cannon cartidge numbers are quite confusing to say the least, but your printer requires PG-510 and CL-511, PG is black and CL colour.

The 210/211 is a non european number, but they are the same as CL-511 and PG-510.

Hope this helps.

How do I change the ink on the Cannon MX330? I cant find where the cartridge is


I am writing this to enquire in regards to Canon Pixma MX320. I bought a Canon Pixma MX320 about 3 weeks ago, and I have brought it over to overseas. I am wondering if it is possible to change from the general ink cartridge that this particular printer use, which is PG510 and CL511 to another similar ink cartridge, which is PG810 and CL811. This is because, where I am living right now, doesn't have the particular Canon Pixma MX320, but instead Canon Pixma MX328 and MX338. The Canon Pixma MX328 and MX338 uses the PG810 and CL811. So, is it possible to substitute from PG510 to PG810 and CL511 to CL811 for Canon Pixma MX320? Thank you for your help.
