You can't reset the counter of any Canon Pixma cartridges.You should be to turn off the function on printer for showing the ink level.In most printers this happen with press and hold for 5 seconds the resume button.

Canon mx330 how to change ink cartridges


Use the thumb drill to literally drill a hole into the side of the old cartridge. Make sure to chose a location that's closer to the top of the ink cartridge to avoid over spillage when you add the new ink. Once you have the hole just squeeze in some ink of corresponding color into the hole. Not a huge amount, but enough to get some use out of it before the next refill. I highly recommend covering the hole afterward with a sticker or something so that you don't dry out the cartride. Reinsert the cartridge into the printer and use. (: All set!

*Note: You may have to reset the count on the cartridge to avoid getting messages that the ink need to be changed. From here on in, use your eyes to determine if the cartridge needs a refill (:

I keep getting an E 14 error. What does this mean? How is it fixed?


E14 is known as a "wrong ink cartridge" error.

Probably you placed a wrong type cartridge for this printer model.

Check the placed cartridges:
Canon PG-510 is black 9ml, Canon PG-512 is black 15ml.
Canon PG-511 is color 9ml, Canon PG-513 is color 15ml.

Almost all printers nowadays have a special integrated circuit inside the cartridges that decreases a counter each time they are used and that is how they know the ink is empty. They also DO NOT reset when you refill the cartridge - this is a way to force you to buy brand new ones...

There are ways to reset the printers after installing refilled cartridges - some need special electronic devices to do it, others only need to push some buttons in a specific order. Please, check these four links and tell us if they helped you solve this problem:

Hi! I has refill my ink cartridges for canon mp490 printerbut I don't know how to reset it to make it print.i know you may have more idea then me.thanks for your help.thanks


Welcome to the world of Canon. Simply put, the PG-210 CL-211 cartridges have what I like to call "digital fuses" built in. One fuse for "new" and one for "empty". When you install a new Canon cartridge both "digital fuses" are intact. The "new" fuse tells the printer that it is a new genuine Canon cartridge and resets the page counter internal to the printer. With the page counter reset, the printer "blows" the "digital fuse" and that cartridge enters the used state. When the page counter on the printer believes the cartridge to be completely empty it will "blow" the second "digital fuse" and the printer will from then on refuse to recognize it as a valid cartridge. Some claim to have ways around this, but Canon really has won this battle. My Cartridge World store does not refill these cartridges and does not recommend refilling them. Buying original Canon cartridges is what we recommend.

Is there a cheaper way to replace the Canon MP240 ink cartridges by using a generic source?


I would not recommend using generics for the PG-210 CL-211. Canon builds these style cartridges with what we simply call a "digital fuse". Basically there is coding on the cartridge that turns the cartridge off once the printer believes it to be empty. For this reason we do not refill these cartridges in our shop, nor do we suggest refills at all. If you would like to use refills, Canon printers that take the 221 series cartridges refill well and are reliable. But make sure you only use refills of Canon original cores. Internet "compatibles" commonly don't fit right, or have communication errors.

HI,
Locate the ink tank on the cartridge. Put a 3mm drill bit in a drill. Drill a hole in the top of the ink tank on the cartridge.

Canon pixma mp240 ink reset


Thats funny, cause I took the cartridges out and left the lid up, unplugged it, plugged it back in with my finger on the power button and tapped the stop/reset button twice. Put the cartridges in, pressed the color start, after some moaning a test page printed. I unplugged it again, plugged it back in and I had full ink Levels!!!
