Procedure to reset recycled Canon inkjet cartridges
If after inserting a recycled cartridge, which corresponds to the ones listed above, into your printer, it still refuses to let you print and displays an error code such as “E4” or “E5” you will need to follow our simple procedure to reset and recalibrate your Canon inkjet printer to the newly installed recycled cartridges.
Note that this method does not reset the ink level indicator that appears on the screen. This level does not reset. The cartridges are manufactured by Canon so as to disable the ink level detection feature when the cartridge is remanufactured. Subsequently, one can still use a refilled cartridge in the printer, but the ink level will always appear on the screen as empty. This does not prevent you from printing, but unfortunately, your printer will not be able to estimate how much ink remains in your recycled inkjet cartridges.
