You may need to reset the ink counter. Try one of the following solutions.

THis is the procedure I used for an MP470. It is basically a modified version of that previously posted for the MP460.

1. Disconnect the power cable.
2. Hold down "On/Off" button.
3. Reconnect the power cable.
4. With the power button still down, press the "Stop/Reset" button twice.
5. Release the "On/Off" button.
6. The printer is now in "factory mode".
- wait until "idle" is displayed.
7. Press the right arrow button (next to the "OK" button) repeatedly until "Shipping Mode 3" is displayed.
8. Press the "OK" Button
9. Wait until "Without Cleaning" is displayed and then presss the "Stop/Reset" button once. (I pressed the ok button after Stop/Reset button on my MP470).
10. A test page should print.
11. Open the cover.
- the cartridges should position themselves at the far left - the cartridge removal location.
12. Disconnect the power cable.
13. Remove both cartridges.
14. Close the cover.
15. Reconnect the power cable.
16. Press the "On/Off" button once.
17. Wait until a "Replace Cartridges" message is displayed.
- insert cartridges.
18. Wait until the printer is operating in its normal mode. The display shows the normal start menu (ie: Copy).
The ink levels have been reset.
- check by going to printer>properties>maintenance>view printer status



this is what i had to do to get it to work with canon mp460
1. Disconnect the power cable
2. Hold down power button
3. Reconnect the power cable
4. With the power button still down, press twice the "Cancel/Stop" red button
5. Release the power button
6. The printer is now in factory mode...(wait about 30 seconds until it says "idle")
7. Press the down arrow (next to the "OK" button) until it says "Shipping Mode 1"
8. Press the "OK" Button
9. Now with it displaying "Without Cleaning" press the power button
10. A test page should print
11. Now open cover
12. Disconnect the power again
13. Take both cartridges out like normal
14. Close cover
15. Reconnect power cable
16. Press power button
17. Replace cartridges







MP-160 is different from MX300 so I tried my best with it...
The main solution is to reset the entire printer:
1. Disconnect the power cable
2. Connect it while holding down the power button
3. With the power button still down, press twice the "Cancel/Stop" red button
4. Release the power button
5. The printes turns into a kind of factory mode...(wait for about 10 seconds, utils it says "Idle")
6. Press the ">" (next to the "OK" button) once."Shipping Mode 3"
7. Press the "OK" button.
8. Press "OK" again for "Without cleaning"
9. A test page will print..
10. Open the cover, like you are about to change the cartridges.
11. Disconnect the power cable again.
12. Take out both cartridges.
13. Close the cover.
14. Connect the power cable once again.
15. Turn the printer on.
16. Now just put the cartridges back...

I just bought a Canon Pixma MG2920 but I cant find any compatable edible ink cartridges


I don't know about edible ink, but I have bought refillable carts from this company for well over a year, and have been happy with the results. Yes, they do offer carts for your printer:

I am trying to scan a document, however the black ink is empty. It only shows the error message that I should refill my ink. Shouldn't I still be able to scan documents?


Must be using PG830 or PG40 50?

For Canon, if either color or black cartridge is empty or out of ink, "Scanner" doesn't work.

That's why your scanner is not properly working.

It's all connected... That's Canon.

Are you refill your cartridge by yourself?
Try "ROADINK" inkjet refill kit. No drill or sharp needles are needed.
It's not only easy to refill, you can have quality printing.

Check out my youtube video, will find how easy refill can be done.

I refilled the ink with a refill kit


You can't reset the ink level on all Canon Pixma printers.You need to turn off the function on printer to show the ink level.On your printer this happen with push consistently buttons for black copy (for turn of level on black cartridge) and color copy (for turn of level in color cartridge). The printer
shows empty cartridges but it will printing.

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.

Need help with my printer canon MP190


I refilled my MP190 Black cartridge PG-37 by drilling a hole in the top (roughly in the middle) and using the syringe supplied with the ink refill kit. To make the printer work again, press and hold down the Stop/Reset button (on bottom right hand side of printer) for at least 5 seconds until the display reads 1 again. This bypasses the ink level detector and is explained in the trouble shooting section of the on screen manual supplied on the printer installation CD. It works. It then happened again with the colour cartridge, so I repeated the process. It worked again. This should also work for the PG40 and CL41 cartridges.

Canon x25 toner cartridge


Don't try and refill this on your own, you'll only have difficulty. Buy a reasonably priced compatible, that is "remanufactured" -not 'refilled'. It's not just toner that makes it work. The drum, cleaning blade, and doctor blade (at minimum) need to be replaced for proper operation, and there is also a toner waste hopper that needs emptying or it will overflow on second cycle.
Just my 2 cents.

Refilled Ink cartridge but the printer says there is no Ink


you refilled or purchased a new cartridge? If you refilled ; did you do it after the printer told you it was out? The cartridge electricial would have to be reset. How to do that is a guarded secret for Canon. Buy a Canon One and replace Cartridge, would one on solution.
