How to check ink level on Canon MP830

I want to see the ink levels on my printer without first having to print a page and get a 'low ink' warning. There doesn't seem to be any way to see the ink level graphic without going through a print page scenario. I'm on a Windows XP system.

SOURCE: Refilling Ink in Canon Pixma MP830

Hello, I found this in a repair manual for the MP830. summery is to press and hold the stop/reset button for 5 or more seconds. I copied the info from the manual too. The remaining ink amount unknown. [1683] (Applicable ink tank icon) The remaining level of the following ink cannot be correctly detected. An ink tank which has once been empty is installed. Replace the applicable ink tank with a new one. Printing with a once-empty or refilled ink tank can damage the print head. If printing is continued without replacing the refilled ink tank, press the Stop/Reset button for 5 sec. or longer to record the use of a refilled ink tank. Note: After the above operation, the function to detect the remaining ink amount is disabled.

SOURCE: reset Ink levels for canon mx310

I've heard that with canon there is a way around the ink-level chip monitoring on the cartridge by doing the following:

  1. Power off printer
  2. Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
  3. Hold POWER and release RESUME
  4. Press RESUME twice
  5. Release POWER button
  6. When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange.
  7. Press POWER to set data

Low ink warning


In short, yes. The way printers often track ink levels is by counting the number of pages printed so you have to reset this when you put in a new cartridge. As canon uses a number of cartridges be sure to do this only for the one replaced. You will get more functionality when this is done via the computer software for printing but as you don't say which O/S you are using I cannot give details.

My Canon MP830 prints only colors, not blacks?


have you checked the ink levels? sometimes the black runs out before other colors because it is used more commonly.
it could be that the device is unable to detect that it has no black ink and therefore will not notify you that it has run out.
i suggest trying a replacement ink and seeing if that solves the problem, if not, then there is a problem with the hardware of the printer.

I have installed a new ink cartridge but it still will not print saying it is out of ink


The low ink warning if you are using remanufactured cartridges.Even if you aren't, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink. The warning can usually be bypassed by clicking the “Resume” or “OK” button, or by disabling your ink level indicator. Here is a link on how to bypass the warning on Canon cartridges that may help:

New ink cartriges in MP350. Still saying check ink. Why?


If you are using remanufactured cartridges, the low ink warning is normal. Since the printer cannot detect the amount of ink in the cartridge, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink. Unfortunately, when the cartridge remanufactured the cartridges, the chip is unable to be reset. Here is a link that may help you bypsas the warning for Canon printers:

If this does not help, there may be a setting in your printer preferences where you can disable the ink level indicator.

Refilled Canon PIXMA MP830 and still get ink levels are low! how do you reset levels


Whoever filled this cartridge for you did not reset the chip. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and our chip resetter was about $100. I would not purchase from that particular refiller again because they have displayed a lack of knowledge about their product. If you buy from Cartridge World, they always reset the chips for you.

Service error 5600 appeared when the printer stop


Dear budg,
Error code 5600 in S200 is No Print head Error indicator. In this case, the print head of the printer is faulty so that the printer cannot detect the print head. About the print out, please check if there is enough ink in ink tank to print. If there is enough ink to print, means this bad print out caused by the faulty print head. It seems that you to replace the print head.
Regards,
