  8. mis mis says on :

    found the reset accidentally by pressing random buttons 🙂
    to reset ink levels when E16 shows on Canon Pixma MP250:
    1. switch printer ON and wait for it to show E16
    2. open front door
    3. press the button right next to ‘B’ on printer and while holding it press simultaneously the button with red triangle/circle – hold them both until printer will go crazy – then release both
    4. after few minutes of craziness E16 will disappear and you can print again 🙂
    (warning led will still be flashing but don’t mind it). you can also disable monitoring ink levels in windows in printer maintenance section -> view printer status -> option -> enable (disable) monitoring
    have fun!
