This will clear your printer from displaying common printer errors like U053, U051 and U052. The importance of the "reset the cartridge" procedure is to avoid the printer from detecting your cartridge as reused one. The steps below is recommended to do after refilling an ink cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer
2. Press and hold the STOP/RESET button
3. Press and hold Power ON button
4. While holding the Power ON button, release the STOP/RESET button
5. While holding still the Power ON button, press twice the STOP/RESET button
6. Release the Power ON button
7. Wait until it display an "idle" message. It will take about a minute.
8. When "idle" appear, open the top cover to expose the cartridges.
9. Lift up the cover for cartridge holder and take out both the black and color cartridges
10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer
11. Return the top cover and turn on the printer again
12. After the printer initialize, return the cartridges.

What happened when ink ran out from a refilled cartridge and the printer detected it?
The printer will display an error U162 or U163. All functions of the all-in-one printer will stop and your printer will not work. The next thing you will know is you are in the front of a computer shop and buy a genuine canon cartridge.
But wait, there is still a way to fix this. Reset it again using a different procedure. Reset the detections of reusable cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer an turn it on again
2. After the printer initialize try to copy or print. The error will appear.
3. When the error is displayed on the display panel of the printer, Press and Hold the STOP/RESET button and wait until it self restart.
4. Release the STOP/RESET button the the printer is restarting.
5. Wait for a few seconds and the pending print jobs will commence.

Let me know if this works with you
Please rate this solution. Thanks

    Oh!
    I'm wondering why the "Press and hold STOP/RESET until the printer self-restart " didn't work for? It does for most askers.
    Anyway! I really want to help you, so i'm giving you a better reset procedure. Just don't give up yet. We'll try to help you as best as we can.

    Follow these steps:
    1. Turn off the printer
    2. Press and hold down the Stop/Reset button and Power button for 5 seconds.
    3. While holding the Power button, release the Stop/Reset button.
    4. While still holding the Power button, press the Stop/Reset button twice
    5. Release Power button (wait till you get the lights)
    6. Press the Stop/Reset button 3 times each having a 3 seconds gap. (check whether you are getting the orange light or not)
    7. Press the Power button and enter data.
    8. Remove the cartridge. Leave it for 20 seconds
    9. Press the Power button and shutdown printer.
    10. Return cartridge and start the printer.
    11. Set the language and country.

    I hope after these reset procedure it will change your mind to give me a better ratings.

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.

Check ink U051 code for a Canon printer


For starters, make sure the cartridge you have put in is the right cartridge for the machine. If it is, try pressing the STOP/REST button to cancel tthe message. Also try powering the machine down and re-seating the cartridge. The cartridge may have dirty contact, try cleaning them gently with a tissue and methylated spirits.

If the cartridge is brand new, you may have to either send it away to Canon for a replacement, or take it to where you bought it from for an exchange.

If the cartridge has been refilled, you may have to follow the reset procedure for refilled cartridges. On most Canon printers, simply holding the STOP/RESET button down for about 7 secs will turn off the ink monitoring level for the cartridge that the message is for.

Hope this helps.
