Refilling cartridge is not the best idea. Replace with original cartridges is the best solution

Black ink low but not


Are you using a genuine Canon ink cartridge? Sometimes remanufactured/refilled ink cartridges will fail to read correctly in inkjet printers.

MP160 ink level won't reset


The only _bypass_ is to ignore the warnings/lamps, and keep using your printer until it runs out of ink.

The only _solution_ is to purchase "original" cartridges, i.e., do not use "refilled" cartridges.

Printer error


I've encountered this same problem, it could be that the ink cartridges that you have installed in the printer are either running low or out of ink.


I had the problem also and found that after I swapped out my cartridges with new ones that I purchased the blinking yellow light on the Alarm and the black and color cartridge.


If you do not want to purchase new ink cartridges to correct the problem you can can open the lid to your multifunction and remove the ink cartridges and place them in separate plastic sandwich bags and take them to any office supply store; Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and tell an employee there that you have run out of the ink and that you would want to have the cartridges refilled.

I actually went to an Office Max in Houston with my cartridges and they told me it would be cheaper to have them refilled than to purchase a new set of cartridges; that after I looked online and compared what they charged for new cartridges actually saved me $40 to have the one's I already had refilled.

Printer cartridge low


It is very unlikely that this is a sensor issue. The ink is probably dry or the cartridge itself is clogged. You could get a syringe and possibly inject something into the top of the cartridge to thin the ink, but unless you literally just installed the cartridge it probably isn't worth your time. I think there are ink refill kits online for these.

Adding new ink might also help to thin the old ink.

How to Override Ink Level Gauge When Using Refilled Cartridges


Above link great.
If you have a newer print cartridge cart, look for the little window. I put a sticker over the little window on the Brother (innobella) LC38 cartridge cart and it worked great :)
Despite finding a fix for this problem, I think this is a rip off setting on the brother printers and I will never buy another Brother printer for this reason.

Ink Cartridge Refill Error E5


press and hold (stop/reset) for at least 5 seconds, then release it. It will tell the printer that refilled ink tanks are installed. Therefore, allowing printing to continue.
