Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer

This is the 1st time I had to replace an ink cartridge since I bought this Canon MX310 last year, and since I never used the color, I just went out and bought a black cartridge. Now the window is showing that color ink vol unknown. All I want to do is print with the black ink.What went wrong?

Hi,

Ink cartridge always has an expiry date like medicines as you had told that its an year old & you never used the cartridge so their could be a possibility that this might be gone expired. So please check the expiry mention cartridge.

I have Canon multifunction MX310 I was using


press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.Canon do not like you to use refills and generic carts so the function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled

I have replaced both the color and black ink cartriges, however the printer is giving me the "color ink low" indication and a check ink u163 blk alarm. We have reset the cartriges to no avail.


Per the Canon.com troubleshooting guide found on THIS WEBSITE, it would be recommended to ensure that you have the proper cartridge for your printer. Also, double check that you have fully seated in the cartridges and that they align as they should. Lastly, it is important that you are using Genuine Canon ink cartridges to ensure longer printer life, not void any warranty you may have remaining on the printer, and most importantly to ensure proper communication with the actual cartridges.

Ran out of color ink on cnnon mx310 ... want to


If when you attempt to print only with the black cartridge installed but it won't print, then this specific printer requires that color ink also be installed. Typical with most inkjets.

Alram light


Did you replace the Black ink cartridge or the Color cartridge, or did you replace both?

Facing the front of the Canon Pixma MX310, did you install the Black ink cartridge to the left side, and the Color cartridge to the right side?

Do Not reverse how the ink cartridges go. Do Not install a Black ink cartridge, in the Color cartridge holder.

If the Alarm light came on, check to see if you have an error message in the LCD. (Not trying to insult your intelligence. The LCD is the little rectangular Liquid Crystal Display on your Pixma MX310 Operation Panel, to the left of the numeric buttons)

Do you have the Pixma MX310 On-screen manual?
Start>Hover on All Programs>Canon>Pixma MX310>On-screen manual

Click on the Troubleshooting heading.
If you have an error message code, click on the heading ->
An Error Message is Displayed on the LCD.

Also suggest you click on the heading -> Problems Sending Faxes.

See if the information provided has a solution to your problem.

MX310 error code U163


Hello,

Can you tell me, have you replaced the empty tank with a full one? And, have you manually reset the ink level function by pressing Stop/Reset for a full 6 seconds (one second longer than described in your manual?)

If you have, and you still see the ink cartridge light flashing, does it flash every second or every three seconds?

The contacts for the ink cartridge are easy to contaminate by accident. Sometimes wiping the contacts off with alcohol will clean them enough for the ink level to be recognized.

Now, and yes, this is a common problem. Press and Hold the Stop/Reset button for 6 full seconds again after cleaning the contacts and then release it? Use the one Mississippi method of counting.

The Scan cover must be closed completely and locked in place. And the ink cartridge must be firmly locked in place as well.

Please advise me of your results. There may be a more complex problem involved and it is important to have the necessary data in order to get you back to working again. Okay?

How long has it been since you purchased this printer?

Regards,
Worldvet
