Question about Canon PIXMA MP980 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

I ran out of grey ink and I am getting error message U163, which is freezing up the printer. Upon booting up it goes to the error message screen and then I cannot navigate away from it with any of the buttons. Is there anyway to bypass this to print or scan without the grey ink? None of the ink replacement kits have the grey and it is tough to find. I just want to scan for now... I don't need ink to scan.

SOURCE: check ink u163 error message

Firstly I suspect you are not using genuine cartridge or you have refilled the cartridge.
To fix this you need to disable the ink checking procedure.

Do you know that low ink or ink has run out message appears once cartridge empty. If you want to use refill ink in that cartridge then you need to deactivate ink level to get your printer run as usual. Check the following tips to fix low ink error message in case of refill ink usage. Below some methods to deactivate ink level detection function for some models due to its similarity.
METHOD I:
Press RESUME/CANCEL button once

I have canon pixma 310 its say chech ink u163 what thats mean


Good Day Sandip920!

Error U163 means, the printer detected that your black ink cartridge has been refilled with new ink.
It is very easy to clear this error and keep your printer printing.

How?
1. Turn on your printer.
2. When error U163 appears, press and hold the STOP/RESET buton on the printer. Hold it down until the printer self restart and initialize.
3. if after U163 is cleared off and appear another error, U162, press and hold again the STOP/RESET button and wait till printer self restart and initialize again.

Hope this helps!

Upon boot up, it doesn't complete, screen goes black, then message firmware error appears.


  • Do an NVRAM reset. Press and hold 6, 7, 8 upon boot up.
  • Boot up printer without network cable, fax line and options, see if error comes up.
  • Get the exact error message.

If problem continues, printer will probably require service. Contact Lexmark technical support(under warranty) or local authorized service provider for professional assistance.

My Canon printer MX860 will get half low on ink and freeze up with error U163 telling you to replace the ink cartridge. Is there a way to override this error so you can use the remaing ink?


This just happened with my MX860. I pushed the "Stop" button on the far right of the control panel and held until it beeped. Appears to do some kind of a reset. After that, the U163 error was cleared and it printed again. Don't know how long it will go before that happens again but it is working for now. Hope this helps.

Check ink u163 col-on lcd screen. the printer is not respond toany mode


Hi there,
The Error CHECK INK U163
Action : Ink has run out/
Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).

If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing , press the Stop/Reset button for atleast 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can be continue under the ink out condition.

The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.

Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
Have a good day.
