Reset Ink Level Cartridges PG-40 and CL-41 in Canon Pixma iP 1880
After refilling ink cartridge PG-40 and CL-41 at the Canon Pixma iP 1880, ink level on the cartridge not automatic full. This is one of the problems on the canon printer because when ink level is empty usually the printer can be used to print and led indicator on the printer blinking alternately (usually 7 orange and 1 green).
To solve this problem you can reset the cartridge ink level. There are two methods to reset the cartridge; manual reset and reset using software such iPTool software and canon general tool software. On this tutorial I posted how to do manual reset ink level on the Canon Pixma iP1880 cartridge.
Before doing this reset method prepare one PG-40 and CL-42 cartridge again, the cartridge will be used as dummy cartridge to reset ink level.
Here the process to reset ink level on the canon Pixma iP1880:
To make it easier to recognize the cartridge because there are two cartridges, the cartridge which will be reset I give the name Cartridge A and the dummy cartridge I give the name Cartridge B.
- Put dummy cartridge (Cartridge B) to printer. The canon Pixma iP1880 printer will detect new cartridge installed. Wait until detection finished (its will take a few second). Remove the cartridge from printer after all process detection finished.
- Refill canon cartridge PG-40 and CL-41 to reset (cartridge A) and put the cartridge to printer after refill finished. The printer will detect new cartridge installed. After the detection finished usually the ink level indicator has been full.
Note: If this reset method does not work on your printer you can use and press button combination on printer to reset the printer and then reset the ink level using software resetter.
