Lois, unfortunately, most printers will prevent you from doing activities when the ink/toner cartridges are empty. While it my be frustrating, there's usually no way around this other than to replaced them.
You can purchase replacement ink for your Canon Pixma MX310 from most major retailers, including several online ink-related sites, such as: http://www.databazaar.com/
You'll need to purchase a Genuine Canon replacement cartridge to get the best life out of your printer. Look for a PG-30, PG-40 or a PG-50. Each of these will fit your printer. The PG-50 holds the most ink and will last longer, but is obviously a little more expensive.
Conversely, if you need the photo cartridge replaced, look for a Canon PG-31, PG-41 or a PG-51.
Hope this helps!

I have Canon multifunction MX310 I was using


press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.Canon do not like you to use refills and generic carts so the function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled

I have replaced both the color and black ink cartriges, however the printer is giving me the "color ink low" indication and a check ink u163 blk alarm. We have reset the cartriges to no avail.


Per the Canon.com troubleshooting guide found on THIS WEBSITE, it would be recommended to ensure that you have the proper cartridge for your printer. Also, double check that you have fully seated in the cartridges and that they align as they should. Lastly, it is important that you are using Genuine Canon ink cartridges to ensure longer printer life, not void any warranty you may have remaining on the printer, and most importantly to ensure proper communication with the actual cartridges.

The ink cartriges wont fit into the printer.


This printer uses PG-30 and Cl-31 ink tanks. You can also use PG-40 and CL41. Open paper output tray. Turn on the machine and lift up the scanning unit or printer cover. Pull unit support down into place and the ink holder will move to the left. Gently remove cartridges and install new ones. Let me know of outcome.
