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 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.

Ink cartridge not installed, or not properly installed. Install the ink cartridge properly. If the error is not cleared, the ink cartridge may be defective. Replace the ink cartridge.

All catridges are made to show the ink levels only for 1st use, once you refill the cartridge you need to reset the ink level chip, some cartrides level cannot be reset, some can be re-set.
There are solution available for some specific printer ink cartridges on how to re-set the ink level.
You can google and loacte the solution giving cartridge number in the search field of google.
