I had my ink cartridges for my Cannon Pixma MP500 refilled, however, now it shows all are empty and doesn't release all colors. How do I reset the waste ink? Is that what I need to do.

Re: Cannon Pixma MP500 - Waste Ink Reset

I don't belive there is a reset device for the MP500 tanks. However, when you get the empty error message, just follow the instructions about pressing OK as many times as it asks for (I think it is four time). At that point, you can continue to use the cartridges. The printer will no longer keep track of the ink level. You will have to do that yourself. But, you can continue to use the printer with all colors.

When you insert a refilled ink cartridge into your Pixma MP500 printer you should get a warning about the refilled cartridge. You should also be prompted, asking if you wish to disable ink level detecting. Agree to do so, and you won't get the warnings again because the ink levels won't be monitored by the printer.

Using refilled printer cartridges in Canon MP500, how to reset

There is no way to reset it, you just have to watch your ink by the printing you do, Normally, black ink will last up to 500 copies or more if you put your printer properties on fast print (this is to save ink when printing from the Standard version). In Color, it may vary with the projects that you do. The way I check, when my cartridges to see if they are almost out, is to run the clean cycle under the printer utilities menu, then the printer test page. This should show you what colors, and black ink you have or dont have. When you recycle or reuse your cartridges, the metal component that is on a new cartridge for the printer to recongize the it, is removed during refill process. I dont why the companies that fill the cartridges do put it back. I wish they would it would may things alot easier. I hope this helps.

Canon mx310

Canon cartridges have an intelligent chipset to prevent them from being refilled. To have them working properly you need to reset the chipset.
Try the software on this link.
If the above did not work you will need to use a cartridge chip resetter if you want to refill your cartridge.
