Error 1681 more than one Cyan cartridge installed

My Cyan ink cartridge was low so I installed a new one.  Now my Mac gives me error 1681 more than one cyan cartridge is installed-and I can't print anything.  Please help me solve this problem. Same problem. Is saying I have 2 cyan cartridges installed when I definitely don't. The cartridge is 3/4 full. I can get around it sometimes by turning off/on, taking it out putting it back etc. but I'm basically here forever to just print out one page. Is getting a new cartridge the only solution?

    I have the same problem except it's telling me I've got more than one Black [5] cartridge installed.  Sometimes switching off & on works, sometimes it doesn't.  Sometimes taking the cartridge out and in again works, sometimes it doesn't.  Very annoying, it seems to be getting worse, and I'm about to throw the thing out of the window....

Dear all,
To fix this problem, first check which ink blinks, then replace it with new one. If this does not fix your problem, here are possibilities: carriage part error, logic board error. Be careful of short circuitry problem in this case. It may harm other electrical part

Regards,

Says the cyan ink cartraige is empy but it is new, replaced it with another new one and still says its empty


remove all cartridges and close the lid. Wait for "ink cartridges missing..." error to appear then install all cartridges and close the lid. If the error persists, remove all cartridges then clean the cyan chip and corresponding contacts in the printer with damp cotton bud. Dry well (with dry c/bud) then fit cartridges back in. If still no good, contact HP.

hope this helps

HP Laserjet 5550dtn printer is giving error 59.51, what will be the problem?


This code means there is a Cyan Cartridge motor error. The most common cause of this error is the Cyan Toner/Drum cartridge is binding up and causing the motor to stop turning. I would try removing then re-installing the Cyan cartridge first and see if it goes away. If not then replace the Cyan cartridge with a new cartridge. If the problem persists then there is a problem with the drive assembly for the Cyan cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Rx680 epson ink cartridge error


I was changing my cyan cartridge and got this error. I thought for sure it was that cartridge. Tried a few things including pulling them all out and putting them all back in. Didn't work.

Finally, I found a place in the software that showed the info on all the cartridges. Turned out the light cyan was not reading. Took it out and rubbed the contacts with a pencil eraser. Voila! Problem solved.

Wont print with all new ink cartridges


If the error message is only "magenta/cyan low", it doesn't cause any error. The low message stays after replacing ink cartridges if they're replaced too early (before they're indicated as actually empty), it doesn't cause the printer to not work.
However, some other problem might be faulty, or there might be another error message. Try emptying printer queue and print from Ink Management -> Menu/set (twice) to check wether the problem is with communication from pc or if the printer actually is unable to print.

Installed a new refilled PG-5BK ink cartridge into an MP530 printer and get the error message 1681.


Thats because of usingthe refilled cartridge. Most printers these days have a sensor to detect the use of refilled cartridges, or even generic (3rd party) ones. They do this to prevent customers from buying cheaper 3rd party cartridges. Its kind of unfair business practice, but what to do?

Use an original, new cartridge, and this error will go.

Error 1681 more than one Cyan cartridge installed


I have the same issue as well - I just open the printer, pop out the cyan cartridge, and reinsert it (the same one). This generally works - sometimes I need to do it once or twice. I figure I'll be patient and keep doing this until I a) finish the cyan ink cartridge, b) replace it out of annoyance, or c) through the printer out the window in total frustration.

Interesting to hear about "faulty" cartridges though - I shell out for the "authentic" Canon cartridges which you would think would be reliable - maybe I should switch to using the imitation ones if I'm going to have issues with them anyway...?
