Canon printers come with a full set of software to help manage the printer from the attached computer. Your Canon printer's software comes with an ink level sensor, which alerts you each time an ink tank starts to run low. If you use a refilled ink tank, the sensor will alert you that the tank is almost out of ink each time you use the printer, because it is an old ink tank. Rather than dealing with the error message every time you use the printer, disable the ink sensor.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click on the "Ok" button when you see a low ink error message come on the computer's screen.

  2. 2

    Select "Yes" when the printer's software asks if you want to continue using the refilled ink tank. Click on the "Yes" button once more when the software warns you that Canon will not be responsible for damage from a leaking ink tank.

  3. 3

    Hold down the "Resume" or "Ok" button on the printer, as directed by the printer's software. If you are unsure which is the "Resume" or "Ok" button, it will be flashing at this point.

  4. 4

    Release the "Resume" or "Ok" button once it stops flashing and the error message disappears off the computer's screen. Repeat this process for each refilled tank you install in the printer.
