Support Code : 1686 The following ink may have run out. “Black ‎>‎” Replacing the ink cartridge is recommended.

If you receive this message after having your Canon ink-jet cartridge refilled do not worry as there is a simple solution.

A printer reset will be required – press and hold “Stop” or “Stop/Resume” button for 10 seconds. This will not reset your ink levels, but allow you to bypass the low ink warning and continue to print until the cartridge is void of ink.


Note: This WILL NOT reset your ink levels. It will just allow you to by pass them so you can continue to print until the cartridge(s) are empty.
