My canon pixma mx330 color cartridge is half full but it give an error of U163 replace color cartridge. How can I fax without color cartridge.


Please try this solution first, it might resolve your faxing transaction by resolving first the u163 error.

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.

If a problem occurs while you're printing, you'll see an error message in the progress window on your computer.

How do i get the cartridge out


Press the fontb1.gif maintenance button. The print head moves to the black or color ink cartridge replacement position, the fontp.gif power light begins to flash, and the fontb1.gif error light begins to flash or remains on. When both cartridges are out of ink, the print head moves to the black ink cartridge replacement position first. After replacing the black cartridge, press the fontb1.gif maintenance button again to switch to the color cartridge replacement position.

error 1203 means either or both cartridges have short circuited and needs replacement..

You will need to perform the following steps to find out which cartridge is defective:


1. With the printer turned ON, open the front cover and remove both cartridges from the printer.
2. Power the printer OFF and unplug the power cable for 30 seconds. Plug the power cable back in and turn ON the printer.
3. If the error message is now cleared from the printer, please perform the "Self-Test" by following the steps below:
{
1. Make sure the printer is in “Copy Mode.”
2. Press the “Menu” button once.
3. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Copies”.
4. Press the left arrow button once. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Tools”.
5. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Tools: Maintenance”.
6. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Maintenance: Ink Levels”.
7. Press the right arrow button until the screen reads “Maintenance: Print Test Page”.
8. Press the check button once. This will start the Self-Test. Once the page has printed, the printer will stop. The test is not continuous.
}

If the printer has detected a "Cartridge Missing" error, then please follow the steps given below:

2. Open the front cover.
3. Turn the power back ON. The print cartridge carrier should move to the install position located in the middle of the printer. If it does not, close and reopen the cover:
4. Reseat both cartridges in the printer and check for the error.
5. If the error still displays, then remove the color print cartridge.
6. Close the cover.
7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the color cartridge has short-circuited.
8. However, if you continue to get an error, repeat steps 1-3, and then go to step 9.
9. Remove the black print cartridge and reinsert the color cartridge.
10. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge has short-circuited.

HP PSC all-in-one printer skipping lines


  1. Press the Setup button.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select Tools and then press the OK button.
  3. Select Clean Print Cartridge and then press OK . The device prints a test page.
  4. Examine the test page. If the print quality of the page is good, stop here. If the print quality is bad, go on to the next step for further cleaning.
  5. Open the Printer Toolbox . There are two ways to do this:
    • Open HP Director , select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
    • If the HP Director method does not work, open Printers and Faxes in the Windows Control Panel , then right-click your printer icon and choose Properties . Click on Printing Preferences . Click the Services tab, then the Service This Device icon.
  6. The Printer Toolbox opens. On the Device Services tab, click Clean the Print Cartridges , then follow the on-screen instructions. Up to three levels of cleaning are available. Discard or recycle the page that prints.

If the steps have not solved the problem, clean the electrical contacts on the print cartridge and in the carriage.
  1. Gather the following items to clean the cartridge and print carriage:
    • Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available. Tap water can contain contaminants that damage the cartridge.
    • Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the cartridges (coffee filters work well).
    • Sheets of paper or a paper towel to rest the cartridges on during cleaning.
  2. Open the product cover and wait until the print carriage stops moving.
  3. Remove the cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up. NOTE: Clean the contacts quickly so that the cartridge is not outside of the product for more than 30 minutes. If the cartridge is outside of the product for too long, the ink can dry and clog the nozzles.
  4. Unplug the product.
  5. Dip a swab in the clean water, and then squeeze it to remove most of the moisture. The swab should be only slightly damp.
  6. Clean the print-cartridge contacts. Do not touch the nozzles. Figure 1: Cartridge electrical contacts c00832021.gif
  7. Clean the contacts in the print carriage, inside the product. Figure 2: Carriage contacts c00246272.gif
  8. Either let the cartridge sit for ten minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.
  9. Reinstall the cartridge, plug the product back in, and close the product cover.
  10. Try to print again. If the issue still appears, continue to the next step.

In the black print cartridge, this problem might be caused by sediments collecting in the nozzle area. Perform the following steps to solve this problem:
  1. Remove the black print cartridge.
  2. If the carriage has a latch, re-latch it and then close the printer. NOTE: If the printer is not closed, it cannot adequately protect the remaining tri-color cartridge.
  3. Place the cartridge on a level surface with the nozzles up (label down). Figure 4: Cartridge with the nozzles up c00260331.gif
  4. Allow the cartridge to sit undisturbed for two hours.
  5. Reinstall the cartridge and print another diagnostic page.
    1. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
    2. Press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Copy Color button.
    3. Make sure that the test patterns show a complete grid and the thick color lines are complete.
    • More than a few broken lines in a pattern can indicate a problem with the nozzles. You might need to clean the print cartridges.
    • If the black line is missing, faded, streaked, or shows lines, this might indicate a problem with the black print cartridge in the right slot.
    • If any of the color lines are missing, or if the pattern appears faded, streaked, or shows lines, this might indicate a problem with the tri-color print cartridge in the left slot.
  6. Look for defects on the page. If the diagnostic page shows no defects for the black cartridge, and if the cartridge was new, align the cartridge. To align the cartridge, follow the steps:
    1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the input tray.
    2. In the HP Solution Center, click Settings , point to Print Settings , and then click Printer Toolbox . NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Services tab, and then click Service this device . The Printer Toolbox appears.
    3. Click the Device Services tab.
    4. Click Align the Print Cartridges and a print cartridge alignment sheet is printed.
    5. Load the print cartridge alignment sheet with the print side down on the right front corner of the glass.
    6. Press the Start Scan/Reprints button and the HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet. For aligning the cartridges from the hardware only, follow the steps:
    7. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
    8. Press and hold the Cancel button and then the On/Power button.
    9. While the Check Paper and Check Print Cartridge lights are blinking, press the following buttons one at a time in the following order: Cancel , Number of Copies , Paper Type , Color Start
