The cartridge could be bad. Try some others if they don't work then the printer is bad. I have a Canon Pixma MX300 and it seems it could be very easy to not get them seated completely.

Make sure each cartridge is completely horizontal with the table/surface it's on. If it's leaning toward you slightly it is probably not seated all the way.

The cartridges look similar to mine. You put them in the slot and push back and up until they pop into place.

I refilled my black cartridge of Pixma iP 1600. I have done it 3 times before and it worked perfectly until yesterday. Now when I refilled it the 4th time, the yellow LED blinks 5 times and then the green...


The manual for the PIXMA iP1600 says the following concerning the 5 blinks:

The ink cartridges are not properly installed, or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed (the ink cartridge EEPROM data is abnormal). Install the ink cartridges properly. Or, confirm that the supported ink cartridges are installed.

If you haven't already I would take a look at the electrical contacts on the cartridge to make sure they are clean (free of dust and ink) and then reinstall them in the printer. If the printer gives the same error, it's time to buy a new cartridge. 3 refills from a cartridge is not bad at all.

Hope this helps,

Steve

Both lights on printer flashing


If you set to black and wite it should also print pictures by the way, it does not accept grayscale because it won't be able to print in grayscale photo quality.

Printer does not print even after driver was reinstalled. Followed instructions, computer recognizes hardware during driver installation, installed fine but when trying to print anything it does nothing....


Hi there,
You have to change the USB cable of your printer, and it will solve your problem,
On the computer side, you have to check the properties of the printer, (Ports) it should be USB001 Go to printers , Select HP D4360>Properties>Ports if you still find any problem, Remove the whole software from the computer, disconnect the printer, restart your laptop and when the windows boots it should find the printer>click cancel and run the setup again, follow the on-screen instruction you will be able to install printer properly Make sure you don't have printer installed already (HP D4360 only),
If you require more assistance, feel free to reply to this post,
Regards, BA

How to put a ink cartridge in a Canon i850?


LIFT THE FRONT COVER UP , GIVE THE PRINTER SOME TIME AND THE PRINT HEADS SHOULD GO TO THE CENTER OR RIGHT OR LEFT MARGIN PUSH IN AND DOWN.
**************************************************************************
----------------------VERY IMPOTANT-----------------------------

I THINK NEW CARTRADGES INSIDE THE PACKAGING HAS INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS INSIDE THE BOX WHEN YOU BUY IT FROM CANON INK CARTRADGE, OTHER BRANDS MAY DO THAT, IF NOT SURE OPEN BOX LOOK INSIDE AND SEE IF THERE IS INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO INSTALL NEW PRINT CARTRADGE

I have an iP-1600 Pixma printer. I have replaced both ink cartridges and the printer does print; however, the box still comes up saying "printer ink is low; replace cartridge." How do I get rid of this...


I think you are using 40/41 or 830/831 cartridge sets. Ink cartridge 41 are now a days found defective, even if it has original company mark. Tell your vendor to replace it with genuine one. Neglect the message "ink volume low". Try to print in gray scale mode avoid colour printing.At least you will be able to get your documents printed.

Printer Pixma IP 1600


Verify your ink cartridges have the 'Tape: removed from the top of the cartridge.

IF the tape has not been removed a vacuum is present in the cartridge and it will not allow the ink to flow smoothly.

Also try a few cleaning cycles.
