    I'm already printing in all black and black is the only cartridge I refill. Thanks

  • sockpuppet Sep 13, 2010

    Thanks Daniel! I think your first solution will work, but if it doesn't and I have to try your second remedy, I don't see a cancel button on the MP490 printer. Is it named something else? Thanks again.

  • sockpuppet Sep 13, 2010

    I thought you meant the stop button, so that's what I pressed, but I tried both solutions and it is still telling me to turn the printer off then back on. This never ends, it keeps on asking me to do this, but never prints.

    I have a Canon MP 490 Pixma printer and it continually says the ink absorber is almost full press Ok to continue, it then says an error has occurred and to turn it off then back on. It never ends. Any ideas?

  • sockpuppet Sep 21, 2010

    Yeah, it has made printing impossible. The message is coming from the computer, but an error message also appears on the printer. It tells me that the ink absorber is almost full, and then tells me that an error occured and to shut the computer off and restart.

    Do you still think reinstalling the printer might resolve an ink absorber issue. It seems to normally require pressing a series of buttons (stop, cancel, reset, etc), but I'm willing to try anything.

    Thanks Lee

Are you having any trouble printing to the printer? Is this message appearing on the printer itself or the computer? You may want to try deleting the printer and reinstalling the software/drivers. To delete the printer go to start>control panel>printers and faxes and right click and delete it. to download the latest drivers follow this link then click on drivers and software and select your OS:

Hi

Unplug the printer from power for 2-3 minutes, now turn it on and then press the OK button for 5-10 seconds or until the error resets itself. If this doesn't work then remove the cartridges and restart the printer, wait for the insert cartrdige message and insert the cartrdiges. Now press & hold the cancel button until the processing cartridges message appears. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

How do I reset or disable the ink level indicator on the Canon mg2120?


Inkjet cartridges dried up at the nozzles. Can be dissolved by water to print again. Refill cartridges done by yourself can have dried up ink left in the cartridge to make it too concentrated. Too easy to dry up.

Read the manual.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Canon Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for manuals on the site.

The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine. Open the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) and install the appropriate FINE Cartridge.

If the error is not resolved, the FINE Cartridge may be damaged. Contact your Canon Service representative.

Canon mp 530 error u043 cant get rid of it


It is registering a empty ink cartridge. If you had the cartridge refilled instea of replacing the cartridge that is what happened. The chip on the cartridge wont register the refilled ink and tells the printer it is empty.

I had a refilled canon cartridge for the MP 610 printer It now says cartridge is not recognised and shows it empty although its full


That is correct. Canon refills always show as empty. You will have to wait until the cartrdge runs out of ink before you know it is indeed empty.
