I have a Canon BJC-4300 printer and I recently ran out of black ink. I did not buy the same exact brand as my color ink cartridge. I am getting an error message "Printer Cartridge Not Compatible." Do I have to use the brand of ink for my black and color cartridges. When I turn on my printer, the neon green light immediately begins flashing. It looks like my print jobs are just sitting out there in limbo, waiting for the printer to get its act together.
It always helps to replace with the correct brand as cheaper versions do fail, also if you had replaced it with a BC-20 from Canon, the supplier may replace it for you. It would be a good idea to trust the printer at this stage, try a Canon BC-20

1. Make sure the color cartridges are installed correctly. 2. Make sure the cartridges are not expired. There should be a date on the sticker on them. 3. Make sure that the cartridges are clean. Sometimes the ink can build up on the cartridges and stop ink from coming out. 4. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes. Find your printer and right click, then press Printing Preferences. In the options there make sure that color is selected.
Sometimes the printhead itself gets clogged. You can remove it with the green lever to the right of it. Take both cartridges out, take the printhead alone and soak it in lukewarm water for an hour. Rinse when done. You will likely see lots of black ink in the water that has been softened and removed from the printhead. Blow excess water off or leave it to dry. Put known good cartridges back in and you should be ready to go. Done this many many times.
Hi Sue, first tell the exact printer model, because MF5750 is laser printer B&W, lbp5700 is also laser and doesnt have ink. Wich ink printer do you have like pixma 5300? pixma 4300? The 5750 doesnt exist in canon range of printers.
But, by your description you have print head problems or clodged inks or purge unit problems.
i think u already solved your problem...your printer's problem is its printer head...u cannot solve this problem by fixing it yourself.all u can do is to buy new printer head at printer's shop. it is true because i got the same problem with my BJC 200.i do the same solution as u r and lastly, i go to the technician and he said i need to replace my printer head at some price.....just think bout money n i discover that buy a new one is better(as for my problem)
not to discourage u, but try to plan either to buy new printer head or buy a new printer....
Nope. You can use Cyan, Magenta and Yellow as well as Black.

ProductDescription for Canon BJC 620
(From the Manufacturer, Canon)
Simply a piece of printing marvel, with high definition printing,
superior ink technology, innovative waste-free ink system and
user-friendly Windows printing system. The BJC-620, simply a must buy
for those who seriously considers printing in superior, high quality
color. It comes with an Internet kit.
You can purchase Canon cartridges directly from Canon here. The BC-10 is a cartridge that prints with black ink only. The BCI-10 is the replacement ink tank for this cartridge (a new cartridge comes complete with an ink tank). The BC-11e is a cartridge that prints both black and color, and has two ink tanks, the BCI-11 black and BCI-11 color. A new BC-11e cartridge comes complete with two new ink tanks.
Depending on how many times you have refilled the wells of the cartride the sensor inside may be going bad as the manufature of the cartridge only intended it for a one time use. My recommendation would be to buy a off brand compatible and refill those.
Turn on printer, press cartridge button, remove cartridge. On left side of remaining cradle, unsnap the cradle, lift up and remove. Take the cradle to your sink, wet a paper towel, and GENTLY wipe the long print head with the wet paper towel. Then run a small stream of clear cool water through the cradle, from the round pad that your cartridge rests on, until the pad looks ink-free. Dry everything with tissues and a hair dryer set on low, replace cradle in printer, replace cartridge, turn on printer, press Resume until it beeps three times, which runs the deep cleaning program, and after the procedure is finished, your printer will print as new.
