How to set ink level on canon mx-320 after refill?

Apparently the problem is that you are choosing to install (according to Canon), cheap, aftermarket ink cartridges rather than Canon ones. Therefore the machine is not recognizing them. Try this procedure, found on another forum, that was supplied by one of the cheapo ink companies. Who better to know how to fool the machines than them. If they want to sell these ink carts, they better know who to make them work!

U051 Error Correction procedure.

1- Switch off the Canon MX300 and disconnect the power cable.

2- While press and hold the power button, Connect the power cable to electric socket.

3- While pressing the power button, press the "Cancel/Stop" button (red button). (press TWICE che "stop\cancel" button)

4- Now release the power button and the printer turns into a kind of factory mode. Wait for 10 seconds until it says "idle".

5- Press ">" (next button) once "Shipping Mode 3? then Press the "OK" button. Press "OK" again for "without cleaning". A test page will print.

6- Open the cover, like you are about to change the cartridges.

7- Disconnect the power cable again without switch off the printer.

8- Take out the both cartridges.

9- Close the cover.

10- Connect the power cable and turn on the printer.

11- Now just put the cartridges back and the ink level in the canon Pixma MX300 have full again.

How do I get to the ink cartridge to change itin a canon MX 300

You must have power applied to the unit when you change ink cartridges. The cartridge holder should move to the left side of the carriage when you lift the cover to gain access to the ink cartridges.

Canon PIXMA MX300 Office All-In-One Printer and Fax MX 300 printing blank sheets

Do you have ink in the cartridges? Just because the computer says there is ink does not mean there really is ink.

Try making a copy and see if it copies. That will tell you if you have ink. Just go to the canon all in one and place something on it to copy and press copy from the controls panel on the printer.

How do I change ink cartridges on Canon Pixma MX700?

1 Turn on the Canon MX700 printer by pressing and holding down the "Power" button. Open the paper output tray by pulling up on the tray. An arm will unfold from inside the printer and hold the tray open.

2 Apply pressure on the ink cartridge tab and remove the ink cartridge. A flashing light on the outside of the ink tray will indicate what cartridge needs to be replaced.

3 Remove the film, orange tape and protective cap from the replacement cartridge. You can throw away any trash. Do not touch the metal contacts on the new cartridge; this may cause the cartridge not to work.

4 Insert the front end of the replacement cartridge into the ink holder. Make sure you are placing the correct color in the correct spot. There is a sticker on the outside of the holder indicating what color goes where.

5 Apply pressure on the cartridge where it says "Push" until the cartridge snaps into place. The once flashing light should turn a solid red indicating the cartridge was replaced correctly.

6 Close the paper output tray. The Canon MX700 will start cleaning the printer heads. You cannot print during this time. The entire process may take a minute or two.

I had my black ink refilled and my printer Alarm light is on and the printer reads - check ink and will not work. It is a Canon MX 300. Thanks for any assistance.

Press and hold down the stop/reset button until the printer restart. Then release the button and wait for the printer to initialize. These will reset the cartridge from being detected as refilled one.

Let me know if this works with you.
Please comeback and rate this solution.
Thanks for using Fixya.
