    its worth trying this aswell:

    1, Power off the printer

    2, Unplug the printer's power cord, wait 5 seconds then replug the power cord in.

    3, Hold the Power button for 6 Beeps

    4, Release the Power Button

    This will reset the printer and should resolve incorrect cartridge detection problems

Override empty ink tank on Canon PIXMA MX860


The title of this topic is for the MX860. It has no "RESUME" button, so the advice submitted by cene765 does not work. But there is a solution.

The MX860 has two black ink cartridges--one small (like the colored ones) and one large. So, you will run out of colored ink way before you run out of black. I found that by selecting the "Gray scale" printing option, I could still print with color cartridges being very low. Even when the printer told me that the color cartridges were empty, I could still print by clicking the "OK" button. However, this does not last. Eventually, the printer will flag the color cartridges with an alarm. When that happens, the printer stops working, freezing at the alarm until you replace the cartridge.

However, you can still print. What you need to do is press and hold the STOP button for a few moments. The alarm will be released and then you let go of the button. Printing can resume. This happened to me where the alarm was triggered by the cyan cartridge, before I could even try to print. When I used the STOP button bypass, printing started but was then flagged by the magenta cartridge. I thought for sure that pressing STOP while in the middle of starting the print cycle would abort it, but thankfully it did not--the alarm was cleared and printing resumed.

Canon MX860 AIO not responding. Only alarm light come on.


First check the connections, install most updated drivers. If the problem still exists, then unplug the power cord and plug the power cord directly to a wall outlet without surge protector and connect powerby holding the power button, reset your printer and check whether it is working.

On/off button and alarm light flashing. the display is saying check printer followed by 6500. what can be done to rectify??


Hi there
It could be the waste ink pads in the printer that needs cleaning out.

You need to be handy with your hands, you will have to open up all the printer to get inside it where you will see the ink tank with pads in it need to clean all out and after that you will need to reset it with the MPTools resetter.
