    I have the same problem with an MP620, but the website with the restter tool is no longer working. Is there another way that I can get the resetter tool?

The cartridge


Is this a Canon ink cartridge or a refilled ink cartridge or an after market type. If it is not a Canon ink cartridge then printer will reject the ink cartridge.

Can i use pg-40 ink for my canon mp480


Sorry you can't use PG-40 on MP480. Canon MP480 printer takes only Canon PG-510 Black Ink Cartridge, Canon CL-511 Colour Ink Cartridge or Canon CL513 Colour Ink Cartridge (this one is high yield colour cartridge).

With new cartridge indicates low ink level,


The ink level gauge may not work properly with refilled cartridges. Because of this, you might get low ink message after refilling. To install the refilled cartridge you might need to override the ink level gauge. Overriding the ink level gauge disables the printer’s ink level tracking feature, but allows you to use refilled cartridges. To override the ink level gauge, please check your printer reference guide. After disabling the ink level tracking feature you should check the ink level visually and as soon as the ink level gets low you need to refill the cartridge. You do not want to try to print with an empty cartridge. Trying to print with an empty cartridge may damage your print-heads.

otherwise you will have to replace the cartridge .

What is error 2,140,0


Hello there nleia.

Here's your GEEK-steer ...

The closest hit I can find on your stated "error 2,140,0" for the device "Pixma MP480 All-In-One InkJet Printer" from the manufacturer (Canon) website's Support and Service page is "ERROR LCD: The ink cartridge cannot be recognized. U140". Its one suggested solution: "Replace ink cartridge(s)".

Google also yielded nothing I can find on that stated error code.

== SUGGESTIONS ==
  1. On the possibility the error is not stated verbatim as error "2,140,0", I would advise you to go there yourself, then enter into the search engine the EXACT error (and/or variations of it) as it displays to you, in order to maybe get another solution hit. Also try entering a brief description of the problem to possibly yield additional results.
  2. Ensure you have the latest driver(s) for the device, and if not, download and install them.
  3. Contact Canon Support Services.
Good luck, and thanks in advance for posting back ...
  • to let me (and others) know how things worked out.

Where is the reset button? I've refilled the cartridge and it still says it's empty (canon MP480)


this model uses a chip resetter avalible from most people who mfg. refill kits.google the brand & make of printer and see if you find a reset procedure. there are three different resets on cannon printers.if you do override it you will not be able to see the ink levels but if you reset the cartridge you will see all as a new cartridge.

Alarm light is lit -


Ok my printer is giving me the U140 message saying that ink tank cannot be recognized. The new ink tank is Cannon (not a off brand or refill). i think it is a problem with the chip reader port inside the printer not the ink tank chip. I feel this way because if you switch around the yellow and black 8 tanks, the printer accepts them without error.. soo if it was the ink cartridge i could be able to swap the black with the magenta and it should read it.
