I dont understand your reference to counter? if you are referring to the machines internal page counter which records the number of pages it has printed from day 1 then the simple answer is YOU CANT. This can only be done by changing the SCNT board (main board that is) for it is stored in the eeprom and this cannot be fully erazed. You cant even do an eeprom reset or update to reset the counter as this is not touched during the update/initialization proceedure. Anyway you cannot access the eeprom as only Canon engineers have the software to do this. You have to be a trained and registered engineer with canon before you can get the software to do it.It is uniquely customised to the engineer. Srri but give up on this one mate.

How do I fix error code 5b02 in Canon mx397?


When you clean the print heads, the ink has to go somewhere. This error code is, "waste pads are full". This is typically something that you take your printer to a service center for.

I did find some instructions for you, though:

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.

Both of my ink cartridges went out at the same time and i only replaced the black. now it has an error saying it will not print because i need to replace the color ink cartridge. but i'm trying to...


It depends on the model that you have. You can try one of the following to reset the ink counter and the printer will show a full color cartridge.

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...

----

1. Press & hold stop/reset button, and then press & hold [ON/OFF] button.
2. When Green power lit, leave stop/reset button & press twice stop/reset (see orange indicator).

Why my printers show alarm U051


Hi, khaircarrier

That error has something to do with the page counter and the ink system. You'll need to reset your printer to clear the ink counters, after resetting it'll not display the error code again. Follow this procedure to reset the printer:
  1. Power off the printer.
  2. Holding the stop/reset button, press and hold power button also. Hold both buttons together for 5 secs.
  3. Still holding the power button, release the stop/reset buton, then press the stop/reset button twice.
  4. Release power button (the screen should now say 'Service Mode').
  5. Wait until the power button lights steady green, then press the stop/reset button three times with a 3 sec space between each press. On the 3rd press the indicator should turn steady orange.
  6. Press the power button once, (the orange light should go off).
  7. Open the printer and remove both cartridges. Wait for 10 seconds. Replace the cartridges and close printer. Wait for 30 seconds.
  8. Press the power button, and wait until printer has shut down.
  9. Press power button to power up. The printer will feed one piece of paper, then ask you to set the language.
The page counter should now be reset. That should solve your issue.

10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer

I have conon mx 868 but i have got error message 6502 and 150 how can i solve the problem?


Here are instructions:

The MPTool is designed for service works with the printer Canon MP-Series
when in Low-Level mode. This is NOT the same as "service mode"

Currently supported for
MP150, MP160, MP170, MP180, MP450, MP460. MP150, MP160, MP170, MP180, MP450, MP460.

To activate LOW LEVEL mode:

1. Unplug the power cord to the printer for a moment.

2. Then, hold down the on/off button while plugging in the power cord. Keep holding the on/off button down.

Sometimes the Canon printers which use PG-5BK/CL-8 colour cartridges with chips will give error mesaages like 6502 or other types of error meaasge to do with the cartridges, which has the orange light flashing and the printer will not work. Follow this procedure which quite often resets the printer and allows it to resume printing.

When error is indicated, turn power switch off so green light is extinguished.

First hold down resume button and then hold down power button so both are held down at same time

When green light comes on, continue holding down power button and let resume button go, then press resume button twice. Then let power button go.

Then press resume button four times, power button should be releasedbefore doing this.

Wait until printer settles down, if power is off, turn on. If power will not come on, remove power cord from back of printer, then wait 15 seconds before plugging back in again and turn power on. This normally solves the error problem - if not go through same procedure again.

Incidentally, you may find that if the chips had previously been disabled,the low ink warnings are showing againand they will have to be disabled once more. This would indicate that the above procedure clears the firmware memory of the disabling of the chips, this may be usefull if you need some warranty work done on you printer after the chips had been disabled. Canon does warn that disabling the chips may result in the printer's warranty being voided
