Canon printers come with a software package that needs to be installed on your computer. This software performs a variety of functions, including helping users troubleshoot any problems with the printer and managing the printer's settings from the computer. This Canon software includes an ink-level monitor that gauges how much ink is left inside each of the printer's ink cartridges. If you refill an ink cartridge or buy one that has been refilled, the ink-level monitor will not allow the printer to operate until you perform a simple procedure.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Install the refilled print cartridges into the MX310. Wait for the printer's software to detect the refilled cartridges. A message appears asking if you want to continue using the ink cartridges despite the fact that the ink level in them cannot be detected. Click "OK."

  2. 2

    Click "Yes" in the next window that appears. This window warns you about potential damage to the printer from an improperly filled ink cartridge.

  3. 3

    Select "Yes" one more time in the next window that appears, which informs you that Canon is not liable for damage done to the printer by the refilled cartridges. Another window appears, directing you to hold down the "Resume" button on your MX310 for five seconds. Do so, then release it.
