I went through various user reviews and got views from Canon printer technical team to decipher this long-drawn puzzle as to why Canon support code 1731 error message gets displayed.
By means of this quick user guide, I would like to share the reasons ultimately causing the Canon support code 1731 error message and the feasible solutions that can help resolve this issue and get out of this puzzling situation.
Reason 1 - Ideally, whenever a Canon user uses non-conventional generic cartridges instead of the regular Canon ink cartridges to get cheap printouts from his or her Canon printer, he is bound to witness on-screen messages in the form of 1731 error code.
Actually by displaying the Canon support code 1731 error message your Canon printer tries to deter you from using generic ink cartridges as it is expected to undermine your Canon printer’s performance.
Reason 2 - It may also happen when you try to update your Canon printer driver immediately after buying a new Canon printer. Consequently, frequent and excessive updating of Canon printing drivers might also result in the fact that you may start witnessing the Canon support code 1731 error message.
To fix the Canon support code 1731 error message, all you have to do is disable your Canon printer reflecting the Canon support code 1731 error message by clicking on the “Do not detect” tab located on the bottom left corner of the screen reflecting the said message.

There is yet another way of disabling your Canon printer from reflecting Canon support code 1731 error message wherein you just have to long press the Canon printer’s Stop button for five seconds and then release it subsequently.
You must note that when you have disabled the Canon printer from prompting you against frequent driver updates or generic cartridges uploaded on the Canon printer, you might not see ink detection levels remaining active, instead, you will see the ink detection levels tab or option turning grey owing to disabled Canon ink level.
