Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies

When a Inkjet Printer does not Print.

After we have installed our Printer Software and we think our Printer is ready to Print. Even after we have carefully installed the ink catridges. There are times our Printer will not Print.Here are a few helpful Tips on making sure the Printer will Print.

1. Check all connections to the Printer to the Computer and to your wall outlet.

2. Make sure before you install your Inkjet Ink Cartridge that you peel off the small plastic tape that covers the tiny hole on the Ink Cartridge .After peeling off this tape insert your Ink Cartridge into the proper place. It should just snap in. Also most Printers now can not use generic ink It calls for the manufactors brand of your Printer in some cases..Check your Printer Documentation.

3.Make sure your Printer Software is installed properly.

If your Inkjet Printer does not Print .Try all these measures and even try uninstalling the Printer Software and reinstalling your Printer Software.

ink cartridge not properly installed


I have gone through all the forums but none of them worked...

The correct solution for the problem is the canon printer needs to have both the color and black catridges present in the printer...
So even if you purchased new black catridge only you need to have the old color catridge to be placed in the place of color catridge....

So it will detect the catridges and if any of the one is empty it asks to select black at the time of printing and simply select it you will get a black print...

So make sure both the catridges either empty or full need to be placed to detect the catridges....

I hope it will be helpful.....

Canon mp460 printer. refilled cartridge not recognised


Dear Sir,

This is deffinately due to catridge circuit problem.Canon suggest that we have to replace emptied catridges with new genuine canon catridge they dont suggest refilling and also not give any support for refilling catridges. So you can replace catridge with new one.
This Happens due to weakining of catridge circuit portion or may long period printer not in use.
If you not want to replace catridges i will give you the possible hints it may fix refilled catridges.
1.Clean the catridge circuit portion with soft cloth,care must be taken that there is no smudge or ink traces on catridge circuit.
2.Clean the ciruit of printer catridge placing box present inside the printer .wipe out the any sumdge or ink traces.
Then re install the catridges. give the print if it shows error press resume button continuosly. I think it will fix your problem.
If it is not solution is replace the catridge with new one.

good luck
