Ive try the useual things , hold the on button with the set button feleased the set buton while hold ing on buton pressed the set buton twice waited for the 0 to appear ect ect ect ect still no good. please help
I dont think you where trying the right solutions. the mp250 catridge 511 can not be reset as far as i know. what you can do to get it to print is to long press the reset button. this disables the ink level check function and you can work. the procedure you stated is usually for resetting the ink absorber, not catridges.

Insert a fine needle through the hole and when the ink sticks to the needle withdraw it and rub on a white cloth and identify the color and mark the holes accordingly.

refill a same cartridge more than three times. Make sure that the cartridges
are OK. May be the head of the cartridges are not in good condition. You may
need to replace cartridge. Check that you have installed the cartridges
properly or reinstall it. Align the cartridges. If it doesn't solve your
problem then you have to replace the cartridges. Using original cartridge
always is recommended.
