How do I reset Canon MG 4170 ink level


I have not used your particular model of printer or these specific cartridges, but the UK versions of these cartridges cannot have the ink level estimate reset. However it is not necessary to do so to continue using these cartridges.

Instead when the cartridge believes it is empty the printer will ask for a prompt from you in order to continue printing (usually in a rather lengthy message). We made a short video on the subject:

Mty printer is a PIXMA MP 470 it has an error code saying 'print head is not installed, install print head' It wont do anything or let me even go onto the menu??????


There are 2 ink cartridges that came with the printer (PG-40 and CL-31). These are the consumables that are also print head. You must install these in your printer.

Follow the setup guides/manuals that came with your printer. If you can't find them, they're downloadable from Canon's website.

I have installed a new pg 30 print cartrige in my Canon MP 470 printer and I get a U051 Error print Head is not installed error. How do I reset printer to fix this error?


Hi there !

The ink cartridge is not properly fitted or installed or does not detect the ink catridge, remove again and fitted it correctly.
.
Also, clean with alcohol the gold chips of the ink cartridge and maybe there is sticky residue when you remove the sticker. Turnoff your printer and plug it on again to refresh the memory.

I hope it helps you.

My canon pixma iP 1800 does not recognise refilled colour cartridge. Can you suggest a fix?


  1. For the not-so-tech friendly, installing ink cartridges in printers can be messy and time-consuming. Although companies such as Canon are constantly trying to make designs more convenient for all users, there are still several tips that can help new printer owners install Canon PG-40 printer cartridges without mess or hassle.
  2. Compatibility
  3. Although many printer cartridges are specific to only a few models, the Canon PG-40 printer cartridge was designed for use with many models of the Canon Pixma and even some of the Canon fax machines. As of September 2010, the Canon PG-40 ink cartridge can be used with the Pixma iP1600 through iP1800 printers, the iP2600 printer, the MP140 through MP190 printers, the MP210 printer, the MP460 and 470 printers, the MX300 and MX310 printers and the JX200 and JX210P fax machines. This versatility allows users to stick with the same type of ink cartridge over the life of several printers and allows small business offices an opportunity to buy one type of cartridge for all office printing requirements.
  4. Refill
  5. Replacing printer cartridges can be expensive and, if it is possible, as it is with the Canon PG-40, refilling is a cheaper and more environmentally friendly option. Refill the PG-40 by gathering a 10 cubic centimeter syringe with a 1.5-inch needle, a pair of latex free gloves, an MIS Yellow Drill Tool, Scotch tape and black ink. Remove the label from the top of the cartridge and use the yellow drill tool to open the vent hole that was covered by the label. Next, load the syringe with 20 CCs of black ink and inject it into the ink hole (where ink leaves the cartridge for the page.) Make sure the needle reaches the bottom of the ink tank and then slowly inject the ink into the cartridge, stopping when the ink begins to well up at the needle insertion point. Now remove the needle and clean the top of the cartridge off to avoid color contamination. Put a small strip of Scotch tape over the vent hole and poke a small hole in the tape with a pin. Now reinsert the cartridge and run up to three cleaning cycles to calibrate the printer.
  6. Resetting the Ink Level
  7. While refilling ink in a PG-40 can save money, it can also cause difficulties when using the automatic ink level sensor. Reset this sensor by removing the cartridge after the printer has been calibrated and placing a thin strip of Scotch tape on the line of gold-colored leads nearest the ink hole on the bottom of the ink cartridge. Replace the cartridge and wait for the computer to display a warning about the ink cartridge being loaded incorrectly. Remove the cartridge and move the tape from the first to the second level of leads and replace the cartridge. When the PC displays a message that the cartridge is not recognized, remove the cartridge and replace without the tape. The ink level will be reset.

Good Day. Do I need to replace both cartridges at the same time to get a good print from my Canon MP 470 printer Thank you


Absolutely not! Every printing head/cartridge is totally indipendent! Change cartridges only when their ink level is low...

Good day,
Pelu.

I want to use black ink only and stop wasting color ink


Hi,
Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.
