Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
Now this is for the black PG-40 and CL-41.
After refilling your cartridges for the first time, you need to disable the ink monitor.
The instructions are in your manual. You know the book that no one seems to read.
Start button > Settings > Control Panel > Printers > (right click on printer model) > Printer Preferences > Maintenance Tab > View Printer Status > Option.
In the options menu you must left click on the enable status monitor. The check mark will disappear and the ink monitor is now disabled.
If you get a pop up message saying anything and the printer is flashing orange. Click ok on the computer, if no ok button. Hold the feed button on the printer for a few seconds.

SOURCE: MP830 Cyan Ink won't print
Soaking the print head in non-detergent ammonia works very well. It breaks up the dried ink clots perfectly. (Soaking in alcohol does not work nearly as well.) Be sure the head is completely dry before putting it back in the machine.

Tips for a great answer:
Try to do the Deep Clean Printhead function on your printer to force ink through the nozzles and clean possible clogs and dirt.
