MP160 ink level won't reset

I just had both cartridges for my MP160 refilled but I'm still getting the ''low ink'' warning and the led lights on the printer won't go off although the printer works fine. I tried pressing the Stop/Reset button in conjunction with the On/Off button method posted as ''Best Solution'' on March 17, 2008, but it still doesn't solve the problem. Is there a solution to this problem?

The only _bypass_ is to ignore the warnings/lamps, and keep using your printer until it runs out of ink.

The only _solution_ is to purchase "original" cartridges, i.e., do not use "refilled" cartridges.

My printer says ink absorber full is there anyway to reset counter


When you insert a refilled ink cartridge into your 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.

How to reset the ink level for a HP 60 ink cartridge? I have just refilled a HP 60 black ink cartridge but can not find anything on how to reset the ink level. I would do the "3 ink cartridge" trick but I...


You cannot reset the ink level indicator for the HP 60 ink cartridge. It shouldn't matter anyway because the level is only estimated for "management purposes only" (see user manual) meaning to let you know when it's near time to order a new cartidge. I have tried cycling through 3 different cartridges to reset the ink level for the one I refilled but it didn't work. Refill and just ignore the ink level indicator. Also, it's a good idea to clean the print heads with the solvent in the refill kit before refilling to remove old ink and imrpove print quality.

Low warning annoying me


Dell's proprietary grip on its printers causes this message to appear with any non-Dell or refilled cartridge. The messages/ink filled levels will only be reset if you buy a new Dell ink cartridge or have a way to update their encoding strip.

The good news is that you can still use refilled cartridges just minimize the level warnings to the task bar and ignore them when they come up. Everything should still print fine.

PIXMA MP160 ink level reset


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!!
