“Low Ink” or “Empty” Error No More with Canon Inkjet Printer – Canon PIXMA MG3020 Ink


Most of the inkjet printers cannot determine the exact measurement of the remaining amount of ink in the cartridge. These printers are just estimating the ink levels from the number of pages printed since the last change of cartridge.

You probably encountered printers that show empty or low ink level on their monitors but you just replaced the cartridge or just refilled the ink. This, most of the time delay the work that needs to be done.

Here are some ways to troubleshoot this encounter with printers:

  • Different printer units have their own unique mechanisms but these machines still have things in common.  The most common, easiest and fastest way is to turn off the status monitor of the printer. Look for the buttons that stop, clears, resets, or resumes the printers’ function. The symbol looks like a circle with an inverted triangle on the inside.
  • Once you located the button, press it for around 5-10 seconds. The printer will respond but this varies from different models.
  • The yellow exclamation mark should be seen once you open the status monitor. Just turn this off.
  • Since it is turned off, you will no longer receive prompts on empty cartridges.

These steps can be applied to the Canon Inkjet Printer. Improve your printing experiences by pairing it with Canon PIXMA MG3020 Ink. Canon PIXMA MG3020 Ink is best for producing sharp detailed images in vibrant colors.
