How to Override Ink Level Gauge When Using Refilled Cartridges

I've got a couple of refilled ink cartridges for my PIXMA MP160 Canon all-in-one printer. Unfortunately after installing them it says that the ink is still low or the cartridges need replacing (or both!) and I have been told I need to override the Ink Level Gauge to fix this. Any ideas? resetting ink fluid function with refillable cartridges

    Please tell me a command code that I can type in to override the ink level gauge. There is still ink in the cartridge.

I have the same problem with my PIXMA IP 3300. The ink cartridges have 4 electrical contacts on the front. I think the ink level gauge is controlled with these contacts. This is probably just another ploy from Canon to stop you from refillng these cartridges. If anyone knows a way around this , please let me know

I WAS TOLD THAT A DOCUMENT COULD BE RESTRICTED TO PRINT IN BLACK.  THEREFORE WHEN A COLOR CARTRIDGE IS LOW I CAN STILL PRINT AN ALL BLACK DOCUMENT.  ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO DO THIS?

This maybe in the manual under ink tank replacement, most cannons have this, but keep in mind that sometimes the ink feed tubes to the print head get clogged and then the printer will report no ink at all, these cansometimes be cleaned by soaking them in acholol

Refilled ink cartridges on pixma mp490 ...will not print


I know this is frustrating. I am all for recycling and using refilled ink and laser toner cartridges. However, the manufacturers make most of their money from ink and toner sales. So, from time to time, they will encode or datecode cartridge chips. The only times I've been ale to get around this is by using at least one genuine OEM cartridge to trick the printer. If that does not work, try another et of refills, or you will have to use only OEMs.

How to Override Ink Level Gauge When Using Refilled Cartridges on PIXMA MP830


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled (the absolute worst possible choice) or third party cartridges (2nd. Worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

With new cartridge indicates low ink level,


The ink level gauge may not work properly with refilled cartridges. Because of this, you might get low ink message after refilling. To install the refilled cartridge you might need to override the ink level gauge. Overriding the ink level gauge disables the printer’s ink level tracking feature, but allows you to use refilled cartridges. To override the ink level gauge, please check your printer reference guide. After disabling the ink level tracking feature you should check the ink level visually and as soon as the ink level gets low you need to refill the cartridge. You do not want to try to print with an empty cartridge. Trying to print with an empty cartridge may damage your print-heads.

otherwise you will have to replace the cartridge .

The function detecting the remaining ink level is disable


Hi, are you using Original Canon supplies or are the cartridges you are using are refilled/ or non-canon supplies? If they are not original Canon supplies I'm afraid the use of the "ink gauge" is one of the features lost when refilling your cartridges or using non-original supplies. If you get a new set of supplies (Canon branded) the gauge should work again .

MP160 ink level won't reset


The only _bypass_ is to ignore the warnings/lamps, and keep using your printer until it runs out of ink.

The only _solution_ is to purchase "original" cartridges, i.e., do not use "refilled" cartridges.

How to Override Ink Level Gauge When Using Refilled Cartridges


Above link great.
If you have a newer print cartridge cart, look for the little window. I put a sticker over the little window on the Brother (innobella) LC38 cartridge cart and it worked great :)
Despite finding a fix for this problem, I think this is a rip off setting on the brother printers and I will never buy another Brother printer for this reason.

Refilling Ink in Canon Pixma MP830


Hello, I found this in a repair manual for the MP830. summery is to press and hold the stop/reset button for 5 or more seconds. I copied the info from the manual too. The remaining ink amount unknown. [1683] (Applicable ink tank icon) The remaining level of the following ink cannot be correctly detected. An ink tank which has once been empty is installed. Replace the applicable ink tank with a new one. Printing with a once-empty or refilled ink tank can damage the print head. If printing is continued without replacing the refilled ink tank, press the Stop/Reset button for 5 sec. or longer to record the use of a refilled ink tank. Note: After the above operation, the function to detect the remaining ink amount is disabled.
