Canon printer says ink is empty but it is not

The Canon printer says that the ink is empty, but it isn't! There are a few easy ways to fix this problem. The first step would be to take the cartridges out and shake them back and forth.

This will help redistribute the ink and get rid of any clogs in the cartridge. If shaking doesn't work, you can buy a new set of cartridges for your Canon printer at Staples or Office Depot.

You can also try unplugging your Canon printer from power for an hour then plugging it back in again before trying again with shaking or buying new cartridges. These steps should solve most problems if not all of them.

How do I bypass out of ink on Canon printer?

#Method 01

First of all, you must fill the ink cartridge with ink. This can be done by pouring a few drops on top of the sponge inside the ink cartridge.

After that, you must shake it vigorously for about 10 seconds before placing it back into its slot in your printer.

If this does not resolve your issue, then try replacing the cartridge to see if that resolves any issues you are having with printing out documents or photos.

  2. Press and hold down the "Resume/Cancel" button for 10 seconds, then release it 
  3. Unplug the power cable from both ends of the printer 
  4. Wait for a minute, then plug in one end of the power cable to your printer and wait until you see a green light 
  5. Plug in the other end of the power cable to an outlet or surge protector 
  6. Turn on your Canon printer by pressing any key when prompted after 30 seconds have passed.

Canon cartridges empty or low Ink error

It's a frustrating feeling when your printer tells you that one of the ink cartridges is low or empty when it's not. The problem may be with your printer, but more likely than not, this is an error message.

To avoid having to go through the hassle of replacing all four ink cartridges at once just because one is out of ink, here are some quick fixes for Canon printers.

First off, check if there's any paper in your tray and see if there's something blocking the cartridge access door on the back of the printer.

If so, remove these items and try printing again. Secondly, reset your printer by unplugging it from power for 60 seconds then plugging it back in before trying to print.

  1. Turn the printer on and remove the cartridge 
  2. Press the "Load/Eject" button to release the empty cartridge from your printer 
  3. Take a new, refilled cartridge out of its packaging 
  4. Gently insert the new, refilled cartridge into your printer 
  5. Close door for this step varies depending on the model of printer 
  6. Select "Yes" when prompted by the printer if you want to print a test page with the newly installed ink cartridge or select "No" if not.

Can I print if one cartridge is empty?

Yes, you can print if one cartridge is empty. If your printer has a multipack of cartridges that come in different colors, you should be able to use the other color cartridge to print while replacing the ink for the color that ran out with its matching replacement.


The best way to unjam a printer is by using the manual feed. This will help you avoid damaging your machine and may even save it from breaking down in the future.
