SOURCE: pixma mx310: error message check

Ink has run out. Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover). If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing,press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the inkcartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink outcondition. The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled. Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing.The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing iscontinued under the ink out condition.


Thanks for using Fixya

SOURCE: Error Number : 1485 The following ink cartridge cannot be recogni

Nope! Canon played a little nasty on re-fillers and made these cartridge virtually un-fillable. Not that they can't be refilled, they can. They just won't be recognized in your machine.
They have done a couple of strange things with the software and the cartridge.

1. Software writes to the cartridge to actually marry it to the machine. This encodes id numbers on the cartridge so that another machine cannot use the cartridge.
2. They have placed a "fuse" of some type in the cartridge which is actually "blown" when the "out of ink" message is displayed. This renders the cartridge un-usuable for another cycle.

I like the Canon product. Just not these particular ones. The ones that take cartridges 30/31/40/41/50/51. I have seen too many of them come into my shop for repairs after barely 2 years of use. They are un-repairable regardless of their issues.

I suggest you look at a different Canon product, one that takes the individual ink tank cartridge PG-5 and CL-8 series. These are much better machines and the printer itself will last longer.
Just be aware that you will have an added cost in the print head which is a consumable that will need to be replaced every 3 years or so!

SOURCE: How do I insert the refill ink cartridge?

sounds like the black catridge is a much larger cartridge. I would use the 30 and 31 refills instead. I know with the bigger cartridges You don't need the printer head. Maybe thats the problem. Good luck

SOURCE: new ink cartridge not recognized

Please check if there is not some dirt, or something blocking the contacts from reading. Also the ink level is measured by optical sensor that can also be dirty.
Also make sure you use an Original Canon cartridge.

I need to replace ink cartrige can i use a 41 color instead of a 51 color


The Canon PIXMA MP160 uses the FINE Cartridges: PG-40 Black, CL-41 Color and CL-51. The only difference is the CL-51 is Hi-Capacity. I have included the link to the support portion of the Canon site so you can see what is available for supplies and if your need help in the future with your printer.

Canon Pixma MP210 will not recognize high yield PG-50 & CL-51 cartridges.


The canon pixma mp 210 uses PG-30, CL-31, PG-40, CL-41
It will not recognized the PG-50 & CL- 51
See if you can return it and exchange it for the PG-40 & CL-41.
If not, the only other way is to transfer the ink into the other ink cartridges.
The cartridge cap can be removed by a sharp tap at the back end of the cover.
You can glue back the cover.
If there is an E 1,6 Error code, Ink has run out after you install your ink cartridges
Press and hold the stop/reset button for about 10 seconds to clear the error code.

The printer do not recognize the ink cartridge. Tray to keep pressing the ENTER button for 5-6 seconds, the one marked with a small triangle into a circle. The cartridge must be the same type and compatible (40-Black, 41-Color or 50-B, 51-C)

Changing print color cartridge


The cartridge you have change are did not much or not compatible with your printer. You just buy a cartridge with the same brand of your previous cartridge that used and to make sure that your printer are recognize it. Because some compatible ink are cannot be recognized by other printer.

Cl-41 to cl-51


You have ordered incompatible cartridges. You need CL38 (colour) and PG37 (black). They do not fit your machine. Send them back for a refund.

Compatibility of Ink cartidge.


The MP600 does not use the 40 or 41 cartridges, it uses individual color (and black) ink tanks. But other models (MP190, MP460, MP470, etc) do use these cartridges. The error message you are receiving indicates that the printer does not recognize the cartridge you installed as a valid black ink cartridge. This can mean that either the cartridge is faulty, or that the printer has a problem.
I would suggest trying another new cartridge, and if you still get the same error, to contact Canon for support options if the unit is still in warranty.

CL 51 Cartridge for IP1600


Canon's compatibility list says that the IP1600 will only take the low yield cartridges. The only way you could use a high yield one is if you buy a compatible (non genuine) cartridge and these are only the low yield cartridges filled to high yield levels anyway which is why it will work.

Good luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.
