Canon ip 1600 'color cartridge not recognized and/or device not r


Two things. 1. check your cabling to make sure your printer is properly connected. 2. clean your printer's inkwells.
If you send me an e-mail, I can send you a service manual for a Canon Pixma iP1500. Manual is the same for both printers. I can also send you the software service tool. I have both, as I have a Canon iP1500 printer (cheap ink cartridges).
My e-mail address is: 7ohnnyramone@gmail.com
Best of luck, -Ric C.

Canon ip1600 ink cartridges are not recognized?


First make sure you are placing the right
color cartridge into the right slot.
Most Printers are touchy about the
installation of ink cartridges. If the
instructions say to press the cartridge
into the slot until you hear a loud click,
that's what they mean. If at first you
don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
reinsert it into the slot again and press
on it hard till it clicks.
Then your printer should work properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Empty cartridge message after installing refilled ink cartridge


I've had the same problem. The answer is annoyingly straightforward and I found it on the Canon website but udner the wrong FAQ. On the left front of the printer there are 2 buttons, one above the other. The top one is the 'on' button. The 'resume' button is the button underneath this. Hold this down for 15/20 seconds, leave it and then the cartridge will start working and you can start printing.

Canon PIXMA MP140 can't recognize the cartridge even though the ink tank is full


Make sure the cartridge is seated properly. Clean printer heads when installing according to instructions. Don't cut corners and just try and print, so through all the steps. Sometimes just turning your printer off and then back on helps too. Sounds like it doesn't know it has a new cartridge.

Dear hoppygink,
Canon pixma ip1200 series (ip1200,1600,2200) identify the first new cartridge installed in the printer and detects ink level properly unless you put another used cartridge or you its own cartridge to another printer. Once you do this, ink level of the cartridge become unknown. So, never exchange its own cartridge with another ip1600 printer. This will be back to normal condition when you replace with new fresh one catridge that never used before. This weakness has been improved by canon in pixma ip1300 series (ip1300 & 1700) anyway.
To prevent this problem occurs, you need to back up EEPROM data of the printer by using EEPROM restore tools before perform cartridge exchange. I will discuss this in Canon Inkjet Forum in the next coming chance. Please send me your email to: ijxpert@gmail.com so I can notice you immediately after posting the topic.
Regards,

Printer wont recognize new or old cartridge


Use a Q-Tip and some clean water to clean the contacts behind the cartridge in the printer and on the cartridge itself. Then use a pencil with a clean eraser to polish the contacts. Be careful not to touch the part where the ink comes out of the cartridge.

Also, are you using Canon ink or third party?

Canon PIXM iP1600 ink replacement


Each time the cartridge is removed from the printer an "empty cartridge" message appears and a blinking amber light will come on, on the printer. Holding the paper feed button down for 3-5 sec. will allow you to override the counter.
