Cannon Printer ink light is on model MP495

Hi. I refilled the ink cartridge in the original cartridge, the light now stays on and I can't reset it?

I assume by refilled you mean that you used a kit to replenish the ink.

Some cartridges require a tool to reset them. Did you use one?

Did you comply with the handling recommendations that Canon provide?

Hi. I was careful but have no tool, never used one before? is there a way to do it on the printer? manually?

These are chipped cartridges. Have you refilled them before? Search google for chip resetters.

The chip resetters only work on some models.

I gave up looking after extensive Googling for my MP250 all-in-One.

Even though mine is a budget model, I can't wait for it to go wrong so I can get rid of it.

I just disabled the ink sensors on my Canon that tell you cartridge has run out. Press the printers Stop/Reset button for at least 5/five seconds.

DAVEDAF - You should have started a new thread. Short answer is no. Printers require specific cartridges.

Do not know if you still want this (Original thread 3 months ago), but here is the info you need.
