Question about Canon PIXMA MP170 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a Pixma MP830 all in one inkjet printer. After I used Catridge World ink tanks, printer would not work. I have since refitted Canon ink tanks, but unit says, "the following ink tanks cannot be recognised" and displays a picture of all of the tanks. The red lights on two of the tanks have also stopped working, and unit will not function. Have checked printer head etc, and all seems well!

    I have a Can MX300 and put in black and color cartridges from

    Cartridge World here in Honolulu and I get the message"

    "Check In U051 BLK COL"



    I think I'll purchase actual Canon cartridges and try them hoping that

    it will work, but it's mean of Canon to make it so we can't buy cheap ink

    and are forced to purchase their exoribtantly priced ink carts.

You need to clean your waste ink i think. For troubleshooting purposes, please perform the following:
1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.
2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.
3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank
properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as
they are not currently installed in the printer.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.
5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are
installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if
you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink
tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of
the issue is the last ink tank.

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.

CANON MP830 WILL NOT FAX OR SCAN IF ONE INK IS EMPTY


It's true, you need inks before you can scan or fax, It's not just Canon, All of the all in one machines are the same way. HP, Brother, Samsung, It's the drawback to having an all-in-one machine.

Need to replace ink cartridge


http://reviews.cnet.com/multifunction-devices/pixma-mp830-office-all/4505-3181_7-31785803.html

Replacing the five ink tanks (cyan, yellow, magenta, black dye, and black pigment) is a simple task. The top of the printer flips up to reveal the ink tanks and the printheads, and by flipping a lever, you can pull out each tank individually. Being able to replace individual tanks is a boon, as you won't waste colors you use less frequently. Also, you won't need separate photo ink to print photos, which we appreciate. Canon ships the Pixma MP830 with full ink tanks. Replacement color and dye-based black ink tanks cost $14.25 apiece, while the pigment-based black ink tank costs $16.25. Canon estimates the cost per page for both black text and color text to be an inexpensive 2 cents.

Canon pixma MP600 wont recognize ink tank. Seldom used


Hello!
I have the same printer and the only ink cartridges I use are Canons own.
I've tried these cheaper replacement ones and zip nothing will not recognise them.
It is false economy as now I have a full bank of copy ink cartridges that charity will not even accept.
Hope this helps!

Trying to reset chip on refilled ink tank on CANON MP830


Looks like Fillserv.com has a chip resetter for the CLI8 color cartridges, but I don't know if that unit will reset the big black PGBK cartridge in the MP830.
