Thank you so MUCH!

You would "THINK" the Canon MX350 or Canon Company would have had the intelligence to include this in their documentation to help the consumer - NOT, duh . . .

Would like to know WHY?

Lauren said...

Thank you so much. The STOP button worked. I am using manual refills for the black cartridge. Dont know if that is what set it off but It's working again now.

Thank you. Now it says "volume unknown", but at least I can print now (a little annoying to see the messages flashing on the panel and showing up as a warning message when print; but it beats the U163 error message by miles). Also, I figure I'll need to do this again (as it is saying color ink low and black ink volume unknown) when the color ink "runs out". I actually filled the ink myself using a set of refill package bought in a local, Taiwan, shop (I use a model bought here)

Georgina said...

Thanks! This MX printer I have gives me more trouble than it actually works! Don't buy one if you don't have one!

Really helpful post!!

Ernest Tang said...

for mx416, press and hold "stop" button. i have to turn printer off and back on first. my second time doing this, the first time for black ink and this time for color ink

Thanks guys! Stupid piece of crap printer locks when one cartridge runs out even when you don't even want to print with it! On the MP630 hold 'Stop' for five seconds to reset.

I am so grateful for this information. I was trying to print a black and white document, but was being stopped by empty colored ink.

Thanks!
