In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or
poor ink cartridge contacts.

How do you reset Canon PIXMA MG3500? it reads a refill ink cartridge as empty


Manufacturers do not like it when you refill their ink cartridges so they design their printers and software to mess with you when you refill cartridges. If you check the matter on google you will find the work around for your particular printer.

PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer: Alarm light is on and I have just refilled my cart...


Hello!
I work in a refill shop, and we have noticed that after refilling cartridges for Pixma MP210, they won't work.
Try holding the "resume" button (triangle in circle), for about 10 sec. for each cartridge- that should reset the cartridges (and usually it works with every Pixma printer, but almost never with the MP210, I really don't know why)
If that doesn't help, you should buy new cartridges.

Magenta check ink comes on but it is full


Is the cartridge a new original Canon or is it refilled? If it is refilled it is likely whoever has refilled it has done a poor job. The Canon CLI-8 cartridges have kill chips on them that need to be replaced. Many refillers like to try to confuse people and tell them to either ignore it or put the old chip on their new filled compatible cartridge. The truth is that the chip must be replaced or reset for the printer to recognized it.

I have refill my printer with refill catridge but the printer always mention that my printer is out of catridge..what should i do now?????


You will need to reset the printer so the printer will recognize the full cartridges. try opening the door to access the cartridges and and close it than click on your start menu and click on your control panel than click on printers and faxes and find your printer then right click on it and click on properties. than find the print test page button once this has been done it should reset the printer. so it will stop displaying that the cartridges are empty.

I filled my 926 cartridge but the computer but my info window on my computer doesn't recognize it as full and will not operate it. Put in a new cartridge and it works fine.I used to have an Epson that...


yes, they both work on the same technology. if you get it refilled. it will still show as empty but you cna take prints. actually the cartridge is empty, but you have refilled it. so the cartridge doesnot know that there is ink. you cna use the cartridge but it is highly recomended not you use it. becasue it can also blow up your printer. i have seen cases in which people refill the cartidge to save money but it cost them a printer. so you better not do it. replace the cartridge. dont refill it.

I cannot get printer to recognize new or refilled cartridges. How do I reset Cannon MX310 to see new cartridges?


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 most printers this happen with push resume button and hold it for 5 seconds.
The printer shows empty cartridges but it will printing.
If you put a new cartridges the printer will recognize it automatically.

How to reset printer to recognize refilled cartridges


Reset is not needed. Just turn off your printer power supply and turn it on. It will automatically detect the newly installed cartridge, provided the original compactible cartridge is installed.

Canon ip1200 black cartridge wont recognize after i refill


Dear lim,
Here a solution for you. The cartridge of this printer has memory chip that store ink level data inside. Once the cartridge is empty we cannot restore ink level data to be full. To continue using refilled cartridge you need to deactivate ink level detection function first. Perform this step: when the message 'The following cartridge cannot be recognized' appears press Resume/Cancel button. Do this for each cartridge you refill;if you refill both black & colour cartridge do this tip two times (once for each cartridge).
Please rate this as fixya ok.
Regards,
