Absolute con. If you hold down the red sign that looks like a triangle inside a circle for 5 second miraculously the printer resets and you all of a sudden you have inc again. I believe this is a bug that has been put in to stop you buying low price inc alternatives. This happens even on new cartridges if the printer thinks they are non genuine. How is it you can buy a printer new with cartridges for less than the cost of cartridges on their own. Hope this works but if not you have lost nothing.

All the best luck !!!

Ellen Myrup, give this a try and see if it helps.

for more instructions

Disconnect the power cable

Hold down power button

Reconnect the power cable

With the power button still down, press twice the “Cancel/Stop” red button

Release the power button

The printer is now in factory mode…(wait about 30 seconds until it says “idle”)

Press the down arrow (next to the “OK” button) until it says “Shipping Mode 1”

Press the “OK” Button

Now with it displaying “Without Cleaning” press the power button

A test page should print

Now open cover

Disconnect the power again

Take both cartridges out like normal

Close cover

Reconnect power cable

Press power button

Replace cartridges

The other way to reset it would be by using MPtools and the instructions are here MPtools should have come with your printer. Good Luck and let us know if it worked.

I don't know if you'll still read this, Old Turkey, but I had a problem with my Canon MP-610.

I did what you instructed above. This worked as described (Press the down arrow did not work, but the Right arrow worked), until:

"Now with it displaying “Without Cleaning” press the power button

A test page should print"

It indeed displayed “Without Cleaning”, and I pressed the power button (one time? Or longer? I tried both) but it did not print a test page. Nothing happened, actually.

- So I followed the rest of your instructions. Then it looked like it would print two test pages, but reported that one of my colors is empty, so I have to buy that first.... hope to write later how this ended.
