Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

My Canon MP470 printer says it's out of ink far before the ink should be used up. I don't use it very often. Is there a timer as well as a sheet counter? Is there a way to reset the counters to zero? Thanks. dcoahran@turbonet.com

Every time you turn the power on it cleans the heads which bleeds some ink.

Also I have heard that the INITIAL cartridges supplied with the printer are less than full.

Canon pixma MP470 error "ink absorption full"


Hi
I have found a couple of web pages that may be useful to you, as they explain how to change or clean the absorber pads. The first is here:
How to Clean Canon Ink Absorber
and the second here:
How to replace the ink absorber on canon printer eHow UK
I have always found printers very fiddly to muck around with so I am not sure that I would try this. Good luck.

Welcome to FixYa!

Check if the ink cartridge is compatible with your printer. There are only 2 models of Canon Black Ink that is compatible with MP470. PG-30 11ml and PG-40 16ml.

How do you reset the ink levels after refilling them on a Canon Pixma MP470 ????


Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Printing blank paper


try a few things, your printer maintenance my need to be adjusted, such as settings. i have one at work and i hate it, canon printers are so non-user friendly. do you have both a black and a color cartridge in it, if so you will have to tell it in the maintenance settings, if you only have one or the other installed you have to put both in it wont print with only one cartridge. if you just bought it and still have everything that it came with...take it back and buy a lexmark.
