    I have a message "Check Ink U041 8bk" om my printer and it will not print/fax or scan. I've tried holding the stop/reset button for 5 sec but this didn't help. The ink cartridge is nearly full and the red light is flashing. Is there a way to reset this error to get the printer working again?

Canon printer pixma mx310 will print but will not make a copy. It gives message "col ink vol inknown"

The amount of INK in the COLOUR cartridge is not KNOWN.

Replace the COLOUR ink-cartridge.

My Canon Pixma MP220 is has an error code U051 Chk Ink Blk Col, but i have just refilled my ink cartridges


Using refilled ink cartridges will get this error. You have to reset the waste ink levels by doing the followin
  1. Start with printer off
  2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click “Power” button. green led should be on
  3. hold the Power button, release Resume Button.
  4. Without releasing the Power Button, double click “Resume” button and then release Both Buttons.
  5. Click “Resume” for four times then click “Power” button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).
  6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

What does the message check ink u051 BLK Col mean?


Hold the resume/reset button down for a fair few seconds and this usually overrides the message - it will make a sort of loud click sound when achieved.

My Canon Pixma MP220 is has an error code U051 Chk Ink Blk Col, but i have just refilled my ink cartridges


Same thing happened to my MP220. U051 chk Blk and Colour. I got my colour one replaced as there was an electrical fault in it. So the solution is to replace whichever one has the electrical fault or both and it works just fine. Refilling only works for a certain number of times. 4 or 5 at most and mine only lasted 1, so not always successful.
