  1. i can print now. but the ink level is still detected on my pc as a low ink level even my cartridges are full of ink. maybe because i only refilled my ink cartridges. is there any way to reset the ink level of my pixma canon 258 even i used refill cartridges? Thanks in advance

  2. service error 5100.
    cancel printing and tum the printer off and
    then on again.
    if this doesnt clear the error. see the printer
    manual for more detail.

  3. My cannon pixma 258 is giving error no 5200. Pls tell me they how this error will clear

  4. It worked for me and saved me from the headache of carrying the printer to the service center. I don’t know why these instructions are not part of the usage guide that is provided as part of the printer??

    Thanks a Ton.

  5. thanx it really worked for me. was stuck with it past two days but now all is fine. It saved me from the headache of carrying the printer to the service center. thanx again 🙂

  6. i do this task that you gave to me but my printer is blinking what i am have supposed to do to solve my problem please help me thanks.

  7. thanks. its working.
    i have refilled my black ink cartridge but it is not printing anything
    plz help.

  8. My printer has the same problem. Currently, the colour ink is empty but black ink still there. I tried the reset method but cannot solve. I called the CANON SERVICE CENTER and told them the problem and they told me it’s a hardware problem, and I must bring the printer down to them to fix it.

    After reading the web that this is a cartridge problem, I went and bought a new colour ink to replace the old empty one, still keeping my black cartridge.

    It works, now it can print both colour and black well.
