Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can't find where ink cartridges are!

I have a Canon PIXMA MP500 copier, scanner, printer (digital photo screen on the front), bought in June, 2005. I believe the manual was accidentally thrown out with the box. The ink cartridges need to be replaced, and I can't remember where they actually are in the printer. I've opened every door and drawer I can find in this machine...where are they! HELP!

Thanks.

I have canon pixma mp500. The blue ink won't


This is common in Canon Pixma printers (all models). If you are refilling your cartridges or are buying refurbished cartridges this will happen more often. Take the cartridge out and put it back in. If this does not work, then replace the cartridge altogether. If that doesn't work, you need to contact Canon (us.canon.com if you are in the U.S.) for help. Let me know if this helps you.

you probably have the cartridges mixed up or the same in both.
double check the color on the BOTTOM of the cartridge, maybe they mislabelled them ?

The number 5 is a Pigment text black while the number 8 is a dye photo black. The text black is for black text mainly and the photo black is for use when printing photos. Since the text black is always running out it means you are printing a lot of documents in plain paper mode.

I recommend using QUALITY refill ink like Hobbicolors which is sold on eBay and will save you a bundle of money. The MP830 is a 5 ink printer so you need the 5 ink kit like the IP4300.
