I have a canon mp480 printer, that will not accept a refilled ink jet, error u163
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Hello, the printer is about 1 and half yrs. old, It came up on the screen that the ink was empty, I refilled the ink cartridge and it still says it's empty. I think the printer will only accept brand new cartridges unless i can override how many pages have been printed so far. When I google my question this seems to be a commen problem with this printer. I've tried restarting the computer, unplugging the printer and I still get the error U163 and that it has run out of ink,
hoping you can help

Expert:  Andy replied 4 years ago.
Hello,

Your printer has a cartridge sensor that can detect a new and a refilled cartridge.

Hence the only way to resolve this is by buying a new Canon cartridge
