Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
After the ink cartridge for the Canon Prixma MP 160 have been refilled and test then I press the button Stop / Reset several times but unfortunately the problem low ink indicator is still remaining as before although I have done as some user online suggested. Please tell me what to do the correct steps to resolve this issue.
Disconnect the printer's outlet
Hold the Botton of power while connecting to the outlet
Holding down the power button pressed twice the reset button (red circle with a triangle)
Release the power button
The printer takes about 10 seconds into the show vaor numeroco zero.
Pressing + to the value moves from 0 to 1.
When this value to 1, press the button that is on par with reset, this will light up two lamps
One is that of plain papaer and the other of photo paper, at this point is put paper into the printer
Pressing the power button once or twice (it does not matter), the printer will print a proof sheet
When you print this sheet the value in the display returns to zero, leaving it well
Open scan cover (to remove the cartridges but was not removed), with the lid open faith disconnect the power to printer
Remove the cartridge, close the lid and turn on the printer.
Re-positioned and Refill cartridges in the printer and READY.

Desconectar del toma corriente el impresor
Mantener presionado el botton de power mientras se conecta al toma corriente
Manteniendo presionado el mismo boton de power presionar dos veces el boton de reset (circulo con triangulo rojos)
Soltar el boton de power
La impresora se tardara unos 10 segundos en mostrar el vaor numeroco de cero.
Presionar + para que el valor se mueva de 0 a 1.
Cuando el valor este en 1, presionar el boton que esta a la par de reset, de esta manera se encenderan dos luces
una es la de plain papaer y la otra de photo paper, en este momento se coloca papel en la impresora
Se presiona el boton de power una o dos veces (da igual), la impresora imprimira una hoja de prueba
Al imprimir esta hoja el valor en la pantalla regresa al valor de cero, dejarlo asi
Abrir el scan cover (para sacar los cartuchos pero no se sacan), con la tapa abierta desconectar fe la energia al impresor
Sacar los cartuchos, cerrar la tapa y encender el impresor.
Volver a colocar los cartuchos ya refilados en la impresora y LISTO.
