    My canon ip 1600 did exactly the same thing. My black cartridge is fine but when the colour one ran out it just told me it was incompatible and now nothing will print (even though it printed literally 1 minute before the error message)

Most common, is there is a tiny piece of lint or paper shred, has worked its way between the ink cartridge and the print carrieage connectors,
take the cartridges out and wipe down the connectors on the cartridge and carriage with a lint free cloth or lens brush
Isopropyl alcohol is a good residue free cleaning fluid,
if no all the connectors answer, the printer assumes a wrong cartridge

not a guarantee, just something to try

Dell 942 AIO printer won't recognise black cartridge:


I think you purchased a black cartridge with bad electronics. Basically your cartridge can't communicate with your printer and you should exchange it for a new one. There is no way to "fool" your printer into accepting refills with bad electronics. What you can do is when you get the message that you aren't using genuine cartridges and it won't be able to estimate ink levels is to check the box indicating to ignore the ink levels.

Can ip1300 print with just black ink cartridge?


AS far as I know you cannot put a black cartridge in the place of a colour cartridge it has to be a colour one. Check your printer properties to see if you can set your printer to work in black only, if you can then set it to black but leave the empty colour cartridge in place. This works for my 1800. Give it a try.

No cartridge the printer say. i put new cartridge in


It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?

Have just replaced the colour ink but getting message to replace. It doesn't recognise there is one in.


If you used a generic brand cartridge, you might try an original HP replacement. I have had many HP printers for service that don't work well with the remanufactured cartridges.

If the new cartridge is an HP, try exchanging it as defective where you purchased it. You probably got a defective cartridge. (Hey, it happens occasionally!)

Compatibility of Ink cartidge.


The MP600 does not use the 40 or 41 cartridges, it uses individual color (and black) ink tanks. But other models (MP190, MP460, MP470, etc) do use these cartridges. The error message you are receiving indicates that the printer does not recognize the cartridge you installed as a valid black ink cartridge. This can mean that either the cartridge is faulty, or that the printer has a problem.
I would suggest trying another new cartridge, and if you still get the same error, to contact Canon for support options if the unit is still in warranty.

Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges


Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper
but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.
