TECH TIP: Canon PIXMA G3200 MegaTank Printer Operation & Replacement Ink:

If you replace the #Canon 245, 245XL, 246, or 246XL ink cartridge with a refilled #ink cartridge and receive a #error message that says “Ink has run out,” or observe steady/flashing ink cartridge lights at the printer, then you need to reset the printer to override the ink counter. Each Canon #printer is equipped with a special ink chip that recognizes when the ink has run low. However, if you are using #refilled #cartridges, the printer might get confused. To reset the Canon cartridge low ink alert message(s), perform the suggested procedures.
– Press and hold the ‘Stop/Reset’ button for 5-8 seconds…display should display a one (1) and ink cartridge lights/LEDs should not be lit, nor should they be flashing.

If the printer’s ink cartridge indicators flash, blink or display error codes then the ink cartridge may be #electrically #damaged and will need to be replaced. First thoroughly clean BOTH cartridge’s rear #electrical #contacts using an isopropyl alcohol dampened lint-free towel and ensure no excess ink #residue remains on cartridge. Firmly re-seat BOTH ink cartridges and re-test to determine if error condition can be cleared before deciding whether or not the ink cartridge is #damaged.

Just bring your ink cartridges into any of our authorized refill center locations. The in-store representatives (at either Photo/Electronics support center) are trained to refill over 300 different ink cartridge types from all the major manufacturers (i.e. HP, Epson, Canon, Brother) and can answer any additional questions you may have.
