The Canon MX310 is part of the Pixma series of printers. It is a multifunction printer that includes scanning and copying capability. The Canon MX310 uses a black ink cartridge and a single colour ink cartridge. High capacity cartridges are available and can be used in place of the standard cartridges. When the ink runs low, the cartridges should be replaced with new ones to keep the printer working properly.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Lift open the scanning unit cover. Pull the support arm down into place to hold the cover open. The cartridges move to the centre.

  2. 2

    Press down on top of the cartridge being replaced to unhook it from the cartridge compartment. Pull the cartridge out.

  3. 3

    Remove the orange tape from the bottom of the new cartridge.

  4. 4

    Slide the new cartridge all the way in to the cartridge compartment. Push up on the cartridge until it locks into place.

  5. 5

    Repeat the steps for the other cartridge if it is being replaced. Lift the scanning unit cover slightly. Fold the support arm up. Close the scanning unit cover.
