Canon PIXMA MP150 - using too much toner

It seems like my printer is using too much toner. I only print maybe 10 pages/day and the last 2 black cartridges only lasted a little over a month. I always use the grayscale medium, not the best quality. I notice the spent cartridge is kinda gooey too.

New ink cartridge only last less than two weeks after printing less than 30 pages

I had that model and the same experience. I kept buying ink until I realized I could have nearly bought the printer for nearly the same cost as ink refills, black and color. I also had an HP. Same thing. I finally bought the Kodak 3250. The ads about ink costs was so correct. Many more pages are printed before the "need ink" message is displayed. Buying ink online saves even more.

My PIXMA MP150 starts printing from the LAST PAGE of a bunch. How can I make it start from the FIRST PAGE ??? Many thanks


In the driver you can select the printing order. You must select it in the properties of the printer in the control panel, printers menu; but not when you are trying to print in any program because it only should be useful for that program..

How to reset the Canon MP150 after a refill (Step 10 concerns refill; instructions below the steps):
Method1 (Safe Factory Method):
1) Disconnect the printer’s power outlet
2) Press and hold the power button while connecting the power outlet back.
3) While still holding down the power button, press the reset button twice.(red circle with a triangle)
4) Release the power button
The printer takes about 10 seconds to show the number 0.
5) Press + to change the value from 0 to 1.
6) When this value is 1, press colour button; this will light up two leds.
One is for plain paper and the other for photo paper. At this point is feed the printer with paper.
7) Press the power button twice and the printer will print a some stuff (if this page doesn't print by itself, press the "color" button once and the test page will print). Don’t worry much about the printed material. I got some stripped lines and some numbers. I believe that my colour cartridge is clogged which is why I got the green strips.
When you print this sheet the value in the display returns to zero.
8 ) Open the printer cover cover (not the scanner cover) and remove the cartridges. With the printer still open, disconnect the power outlet.
9) Close the lid and turn on the printer.
10) Refill cartridges and place them back in their nice little abode in the printer.
