MP600 Easy fix for unrecognized ink cartridge

SOURCE: Generic ink problem Canon mp530 printer

The solution is to press the button with the button with the triangle on it for five seconds (the reset button? I can't remember off the top of my head, but one of the main buttons). It switches off the warning system and the gauging system. The plus side is that you can reuse the cartridges indefinitely even if it has a chip in it, the downside is that the computer/printer will no longer tell you what level your ink is at.

You certainly can download the driver from the Canon web site. Most all manufacturer's have current drivers for their hardware on their web site. If you have the MP160, it should be a quick fix. They usually supply everything that was on the cd that came with the printer.

Printer dosent print after I got refills


Chances are this is because you either bought recycled, refilled cartridges, or aftermarket new ones. The printer manufacturers sell their printers at less than cost in order to make their money back on ink sales. OEM ink is expensive, but the easiest to use since the smart chips installed on them work with the printer firmware to verify that original, new cartridges have been installed. That said, there are aftermarket manufacturers that now sell ink cartridges with smart chips installed as well. You may also find that some manufacturers provide a workaround for refilled, reused cartridges. You can Google this on the Internet. Despite what some will say, you will not void your warranty by using an aftermarket cartridge, but you most likely will not get the same quality as an original.

How do I reset the chip on my ink cartridge for a epson wf 2540?


You're better off buying the auto reset replacement cartridges. Word of warning: Epson printers "SPY" on you and tell you that by putting in the compatibles, you will void their warranty. Second Warning: DO NOT download any Epson firmware upgrades because they will wipe the compatible chips and render them unusable. Always keep your old, used epson cartridges in case you need to reset the printer with the original chips.

My epson r350 show message "no ink catridges' pls instal ink catridges" and all of six catridged are not detected. im not used the original epson ink btw. but it works before. pls help


I have found some compatible cartridges e.g. from China have the chip which satisfies the Epson printer and others (more expensive) from the UK do not. The printer works but you get this nagging from Epson every time. I switched back to the cheaper imports and the printer stops moaning at me.
Go figure, Epson!

After replacing both of ink, red light stayed on, because the compatible ink (chip) not recognized by printer. Check epson status monitor. Use original ink or refill and reset ink level counter.

My Epson Stylus Photo R265 is not allowing IJT Direct compatible ink cassettes to be used - they load into the printer OK. What can I do to make them work?


The compatable inks you use will depend on how old your printer is
Epson change their printer every few months changing the chips so if you have a very early printer you need the earlier chipped compatables

Epsom stylus CX4700 won't print - new ink cartridges installed


They cut costs on Epson compatible cartridges by using low quality ink and chips or not resetting the chips at all. Sounds like you got cartridges that the chips were not reset on so your printer thinks all the cartridges are empty. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would never recommend purchasing compatible Epson cartridges from anyone. I would buy refills of Epson brand cartridges and make sure the seller reset the chips.

Canon MP520 cartridge swap and ink refill


Canon MP520 multifunctional device - deactivation of the ink level counter
1. You can do it only when the printer counter releases the warning message - "the ink cartridge is nearly empty" = yellow warning mark

7b49096.jpg


2. You have to do this procedure four times - for every cartridge one times
3. At the screen you will see three warning messages
- for the first one press "OK"
- for the second and third one press "Yes"
4. The fourth message tells you that you can do the ink level counter deactivation by pressing the "Stop/Reset" button (7) for more than 5 seconds. Do it.


Later you can see another type of warning message at the screen:

In this case you can not follow the previous procedure - there will not be any other warning messages.
Just follow the message on the screen and press the "OK" button (5) and you can print.
Unfortunately - I do not know for how long time it works.

You have to manualy check the ink level and refill (change) the cartridge before it is completely empty! You might brake your warranty!
When you insert the new original ink cartridge, the counter will work properly again.

Canon MP530 U052 Error


The dreaded U052 error means that the 'chip' fitted to the Cartridge is not responding .. Canon (like all printer mfgs) makes all it's profit from selling Ink .. so they fit these chips to try to prevent you refilling or using a 'compatible' replacement cartridge

You have to move the chip from the Canon cartridge to the 'compatible' and (it seems) the chips are particularly sensitive to static / damage .. many people end up blowing the chips during the swap over .. or even when fitting the original genuine cartridges to a brand new unit for the first time ...

If the unit is brand new, take it back and demand a replacement ... if you have just swapped over the chip onto a compatible cartridge, you can try buying a genuine Canon cartridge (which will have a new chip) = hopefully that will do the trick

NB. I have seen some suggestions that canon's have a 'Service Mode' that allows you to disable the cartridge chip checking and allow you to print no matter what .. however I've never found any details ... perhaps some-one else has the details ??

Substitute ink cartridges no longer work


I have the same problem and many Canon users , i try a trick that mayby solve this and last but not least ... Mayby the only cheap solution for all print users !! jumping-smiley-004.gif

My problem .. was looking for a cardrige solution ( IP4300 ) because 4 (of 5) cardrige leds are dimmed off and need to be replaced . I just order 5 adopters and 5 new with chip for all the five cardrige . Problem : The chip uses memory and that makes it very hard to reset . But i have thinking .. mayby this is somthing ..

What you read is new, experimenting with this idea is all at your own risk !

Here is a simple markable solution Unique !!

A - First you need all 5 brandnew cardrige with chips ( please keep all ink preventions inplace )

B - You need is a 4 poles - 1.50 / 2.50 meter +/- telephone cable

C - (five) (new) OEM cardrige without chips

D - Tin and a somthing to solder

E - 5 old chips for adopting the connection outside the printer

F - A box for the 5 new chiped cardriges


Procudure :

1 ) Make of 1,5 / 2,5 meter a 5 pcs of 30 / 50 centimeter

2 ) Solder on each lengt a old chip (this is functioned as a adopter) but first remove all the (useless) electronic components and place them on the cardriges

3 ) Solder the other site of the cable to each new chiped cardrige cq / toner that still sits on the new orriginal cardriges ( our make a alternative contact if you dont want to solder )

4 ) Tape the 5 new cardriges together and *

5 ) Put it in the box and give it a save unremovable place **

6 ) Put the (5) oem cardriges with the empty old chips ) in the right ink location(s)


* ) Looking into the new cardriges : this needs a box because of the intervering with the led this not only makes it nicer but mostly because of the outside light influence .

** ) Dont turn the kid upside down our shake it . If you do , the led indicates that the cardriges are empthy our low and the countdown proces for the chip will start !

I wait for arrive of the new ones, anybody who try make a handshake !

See you soon
