Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer
Hi i have refill my cartridge and after refilling. I still have the low ink level . The cartridge is printing fine. it is just the low ink level that comes up Can i reset the ink level ? I use the 40 41 cartridge
I have a similar problem with a Canon MX310 multifunction. I recently got a signal that the color ink was low. I bought a refill kit for both color and black. I refilled the cartridges. I get a message that both carts are low. The printer prints fine in black, but does not print in color. It does not have a resume button on it. There is a stop/reset button on it, but it doesn't seem to respond to your technique.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
To Reset the Canon Cartridges Works 100%
Power off the printer
Hold the stop/reset button then press and hold power (for 5 secs)
Hold Power and release the stop/reset button
Press the stop/reset button twice
Relase power button
Wait until the power button lights a steady/still green, press the stop/reset button three times with a 3 sec space between each press.
On the 3rd press the inicator should be orange.
Press the power button to set data
To set data remove cartridges then replace.
leave for 20 or 30 secs
Press the power button again to shut down
Then press power button to power up.
The printer will feed one piece of paper through
then set language and counrty.
Then ink should be reset
Any problems contact me on email@example.com

All you need to do is hold the Stop/Reset button for at least five seconds. It totally works!!

See, the problem with the solutino supplied by deanrkb is that it completely resets the machine. EVERYTHING! Fax header, ring time - fax settings, activity reports and everything! And it reset the levels for both black and color cartridges, while I refilled only the color one and removed and put it back as indicated in the instructions, leaving the black one at it's place the whole time.
I would say thanks for trying, but this is a method to reset your machine completely, not only the ink level indicators!

Refill the cartridge and insert it. Run the cleaning cycle.
With printer powered on, press and hold stop/reset button. The alarm light will flash several times (it did it 10 times for me) after that it the alarm lamp goes off and the ink level monitor is reset on the printer. The computer still thinks the ink is low.

For those refilling the cartridges instead of replacing them: The reader in the printer reads the scan on the ink cartridge. It does not actually read the ink level... it reads the cartridge and estimates based on usage when the cartridge needs replacing, so if you are simply refilling the same cartridge, this printer thinks it is still empty. You can buy a scanner that resets the scan on the cartridge to make it read like it is new. Then you don't have to press or hold any buttons or fight with the machine. The scanner is like $5. You can get it on eBay, at Fry's or Best Buy, on Amazon.

Keep old cartridges and put them back in when the printer says the current cartridge is low. When the printer scans the "new" cartridge it thinks its full. This only works untill it is actually empty but you definatly get more use per cartridge or you could refill and just alternate between two different cartridges.

All you need to do is disable the ink level detector and proceed with printing even with your ink is running out. Just turn on the printer and press stop/reset button for 5 seconds.. I found this on printer's manual.. Perfect!

SOURCE: I have a pixma mx310 also
I guess the cartridges can be filled. In my experience, the refill stuff is not what it is cracked up to be. In fact, I have ruined more than a few printers with the off brand ink even though I followed their instructions implicitely.
If $ is a issue, give it a try. On the other hand, to preserve your printer, use (and pay) what the manufacturer requires.
If you Google printer refills, Im certainlyou will find what you are looking for. Still, my advice stands.
I hope this works for you
