Hi

the canons do look to see if they new original or 'fake' cartridges
often the chip on the cartridge will tell the printer that it it over used and refuse to accept it

try a new black and see how it goes
sometimes things are designed to wear out and not work

many printer makers do this with their cartridges and drums
my laser has done this recently

Lexmark 300S is not printing black and all my ink is full. Whats the prob


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head. This model Canon/Epson printer may only let you use genuine Canon/Epson printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the Canon/Epson cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.

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.

Canon mx700 not recognizing cartridges


I suspect that your have a damaged refilled cartridge. Also, you may have a clogged nozzle. Canon printers are sensitive to the quality of the ink used in the cartridges and refill ink sometimes does not meet the manufacturer's specifications. You can check this by inserting a new OEM cartridge, running the deep cleaning utillity three times and a aligning the printhead. The other problem may be that the electronic chip on the refilled cartridge may either be damaged or blocked by dried ink. In any case, you need to discard the failing cartridge and replace it.
Let me know if this solves the problem. Thanks.

Canon ip1200 black cartridge wont recognize after i refill


Dear lim,
Here a solution for you. The cartridge of this printer has memory chip that store ink level data inside. Once the cartridge is empty we cannot restore ink level data to be full. To continue using refilled cartridge you need to deactivate ink level detection function first. Perform this step: when the message 'The following cartridge cannot be recognized' appears press Resume/Cancel button. Do this for each cartridge you refill;if you refill both black & colour cartridge do this tip two times (once for each cartridge).
Please rate this as fixya ok.
Regards,

This maybe in the manual under ink tank replacement, most cannons have this, but keep in mind that sometimes the ink feed tubes to the print head get clogged and then the printer will report no ink at all, these cansometimes be cleaned by soaking them in acholol

Canon MP460 cartridge error


"Verify that you are using Canon(TM) cartridges. The technology has progressed to where they have modified the ink to be identified by their printers. You cannot currently use refill cartridge inks to refill Canon cartridges. If that is not your issue, then try removing and replacing the cartridge(s)and reset the ink level indicator.
Lets hope for the best!
Regards,
Eagle"

Honestly.. There is absolutely no way for Those Canon printers to "look inside" or "Detect" the formulation of ink inside the cartridge...

Canon CL-31, CL-41, CL-51, CL-52 Print cartridges have the highest electronic _Failure_ rate of anything other inkjet cartridge on the market. Canon is aware of this. Replacing the Cartridge is the only sure-fire way of fixing this.

*sometimes the printer will tell you its the color cartridge, when in fact its the black cartridge. its advised to replace them both during these error messages.. it'll save you a trip, and the customer service rep's head. haha"

Using an Aftermarket or "re-filled" canon original cartridge is a sustainable resource for anyone looking to re-use an end-user item, and save money in this "tied-selling" market.

I proved you wrong by replacing my inkjets with Oringinal Canon PG-40 black, and CL-41 color cartridge. I ran them until they were empty. Bypassed the Ink Metering System explained to me through the canon software provided during the printer installation, and continued to print with them until they were 110% bone dry empty, laying absolutely no ink on the page. this took approx. 3 hours from perfect start, to finish.

If "canon printers have progressed so much as to distinguish formulations of ink" then.. this canon sure was the PICK of the litter. it continued to print *** as the day it was purchased, while not laying a single droplet of ink on the page.

get a life. stop dissing the aftermarket with your un-supported facts!

reguards,

Refilling Ink in Canon Pixma MP830


Hello, I found this in a repair manual for the MP830. summery is to press and hold the stop/reset button for 5 or more seconds. I copied the info from the manual too. The remaining ink amount unknown. [1683] (Applicable ink tank icon) The remaining level of the following ink cannot be correctly detected. An ink tank which has once been empty is installed. Replace the applicable ink tank with a new one. Printing with a once-empty or refilled ink tank can damage the print head. If printing is continued without replacing the refilled ink tank, press the Stop/Reset button for 5 sec. or longer to record the use of a refilled ink tank. Note: After the above operation, the function to detect the remaining ink amount is disabled.
