Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

Ink cartridges? Hi, just bought a PIXMA MX310. This is embarassing, but can't get the ink cartridges to install. I'm following the manual, but the cartridges don't "click" into place like the manual says they should. Maybe a part is missing...? Thanks in advance for helping. Unless I'm missing something, this is a very strange arrangement for installing ink cartridges...

Try pushing the opposite way that they say and it should then be in place.

My problem with this stemmed from the fact that the Black and
Color cartridges have different little plastic parts...the black one
will not fit in the color slot and vice versa...when I figured that out,
they slipped right into place.

I bought some ink cartridges yesterday for my printer and got 510&511 combo pack for a MX320 only to get home and notice mine has 40&41 combo in it and is a MX310. Can I still use the 510&511...


That printer uses the following ink cartridges

PG-30
CL-31
(low capacity)

PG-40
CL-41
(normal capacity)

PG-50
CL-51
(high capacity)

The ink you purchased will not work on the Canon PIXMA MX310 printer.

How do i install the black ink cartrage


Hi!
Follow these steps in order for you to install the any ink on your canon Pixma mx310:
1) Make sure that your printer is turned on. 2) Lift the scanner at the front. It will rotate towards the back and it will give you a view of where the ink cartridges will be. 3) Once the print cartridges are in its final location you can push down the front of each cartridge that you will replace and pull it out. 4) To place in a new cartridge place the new one in its respective slot and this time push the front up to lock it in place. 5) close the printer top or place the scanner back in its place.
That is all you need to do.

This is the 1st time I had to replace an ink cartridge since I bought this Canon MX310 last year, and since I never used the color, I just went out and bought a black cartridge. Now the window is showing...


Hi,

Ink cartridge always has an expiry date like medicines as you had told that its an year old & you never used the cartridge so their could be a possibility that this might be gone expired. So please check the expiry mention cartridge.

My MX310 printer is indicating the following: "recommend new B-CRT". I don't know what this means?


B-crt is the black ink cartridge, either it is empty or
not installed properly. Most likely it's getting low on ink.

How to change the ink in a Canon PIXMA MX310?


  1. Make sure that the machine is turned on, lift the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) with both hands, then pull the Scanning Unit Support (A) down into place.

  2. Take out a new cartridge from its casing and gently remove the orange protective tape in the direction of the arrow.

    Note: - Do not attempt to reattach the protective tape once you have removed it.
    - Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.

  3. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot*

    *One black cartridge and one color cartridge must be installed in the machine in order for the printer to operate. It does not matter if the capacities (Standard or High) do not match.

  4. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)

  5. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.

    <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

  6. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

  7. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.

Removing Ink Cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

  2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.


    Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.

  3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

  4. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

Alram light


Did you replace the Black ink cartridge or the Color cartridge, or did you replace both?

Facing the front of the Canon Pixma MX310, did you install the Black ink cartridge to the left side, and the Color cartridge to the right side?

Do Not reverse how the ink cartridges go. Do Not install a Black ink cartridge, in the Color cartridge holder.

If the Alarm light came on, check to see if you have an error message in the LCD. (Not trying to insult your intelligence. The LCD is the little rectangular Liquid Crystal Display on your Pixma MX310 Operation Panel, to the left of the numeric buttons)

Do you have the Pixma MX310 On-screen manual?
Start>Hover on All Programs>Canon>Pixma MX310>On-screen manual

Click on the Troubleshooting heading.
If you have an error message code, click on the heading ->
An Error Message is Displayed on the LCD.

Also suggest you click on the heading -> Problems Sending Faxes.

See if the information provided has a solution to your problem.
