Printer shows ink has run out

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


I just filled my cartridge from my printer and now I have this error. I don’t know why it says that I had to replace the ink since some new fresh ink is filling the cartridge. Please anyone can help me to fix this ? Should I refill the cartridge again or replace it ?

Thank you!

The following ink has run out.


Replace the ink cartridge and close the cover.

If printing in progress and you want to continue printing press the printer’s RESUME button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out of condition.

The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.

The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

Hello There,

Actually this is a known problem and can be caused because of several issues.

So, try to locate this required button on printer and hold it for at least 5-10 seconds and your printer may jump into life and you can continue printing. You may need to retry though

This error is pretty common for remanufactured or re-filled Canon ink cartridges. It is normal for them to display or read as low or empty. The reason behind this is because the ink monitoring chip in the cartridge, particularly the ones with built-in print heads, is designed for one-time use only. You don’t need to panic especially if you know the ink cartridge is full and ready to print.

Just click “OK” or “Continue” to ignore the message and continue to print. However, there are several printers, particularly Canon inkjet models that will not print if the cartridge reads as empty. In this case, you can bypass the error message by pressing and holding the printer’s “RESUME”, “STOP/RESET”, or “COLOR START” button for about five to fifteen seconds (5 – 15).

When you do this, the ink monitor will turn off, the printer will stop blinking, and the printer itself will continue printing.
