Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I need to know how to reset the ink level counter of the Canon MP160. It says " Low ink" when I just refilled the ink tanks. Please help. I need the tricks or software that resets the counter. Thank You very much! Have a nice day! :-)
If you hold the resume/stop button on the printer for 10 seconds when you go to print it shouldn't give you anymore messages about that cartridge. This printer never forgets a cartridge and you may have to do it for each one you buy, unless you always refill the same one.
For a PC you can disable the status monitor of the ink by going into control panel, printers & faxes then right clicking on your printer. click properties. pick the maintenance tab then "view printer status" button. click option the click enable status monitor .. then click OK. If you do this your printer will never tell you if ink is low anymore.
hope this helps everybody. I know I was frustrated about it!!

In time you won`t be able to print; after a period of flashing lights, your cartridges will be NOT RECOGNIZE !!! It is happened to me, we must find a way to solve this problem....

Man! I have had this problem forever now and I jst solved it.
I kept thinking there has GOT TO BE A WAY!
well there is. I ahve not figured out a way to do it for free but I did find a cool little machiene that you can use to clear these chips and reset it so it works just like a new ink cart again.
Some of the sellers are getting over 50 bucks for these though. a blue one costs about 58.00 a red one is about half that. both do the same thing and it takes about 5 seconds per ink cart. use it for years on the batteries it comes with. or you can buy one that plugs in the wall for 80.00
go to eBay and type in the search Cannon chip resetter you will see them there.
i was thinking about getting a wall unit then charging everyone I know for this service. LOL it would pay for it's self fairly quick i would think. say like 8 or 10 bucks for all 4 - then they buy a boat load of the cheap ink with no chips and I do that for 8 people and poof I getthe machiene free.
In July 2008 a new hack willbe here i have read, where you dont putthe chip in the cart anymore, it goes on a plastic strip and inserts in the macheine - then you dont have to worry about it. sounds cool to me.
I have teh MP510 this resetter works for any printer that uses these carts.

From what I've been able to find out about it you need to buy some kind of smart chip and install it in the cartridge after refilling it. I just let the lights flash.
