The HPs are notorious for not recognizing the cartridge after a few replacements in my experience. On the information screen is it saying the cartridge is not in or ink is low? You can have the machine, through the menu, do a cleaning of the heads. If this does not work then I have a low tech solution to fix the seating of the cartridge. I put a wadded up paper towel in the door to hold the cartridges firmly in place and the printer reads it fine then. I do have a different model than what you are showing but there has to be a way.
the display for an error message. If the display reads "Clearing paper
from printer," the engine has detected a jam and is attempting to eject
the jammed pages automatically. These pages will often be blank.
the display for "Performing PRINT/STOP TEST" or "Performing SERVICE
TEST." Either of these messages indicates that the printer is going
through a test procedure that may eject blank pages.
the amount of paper in the input tray if the printer is feeding
multiple blank sheets at a time. The printer will pull extra pages
through if the input tray is overfilled.
the paper in the input tray with the correct size if needed. If the
4600 printer detects the paper as an incorrect size for the print job, it may eject the paper without printing anything on it.
the ink cartridges if certain colors are blank on the page. Replace the
black cartridge if printing a black text document that is coming out
blank. The printer may attempt to print even if the ink level is low or
empty, but will unable to print anything on the page, causing it to
come out blank.
the sealing tape from newly installed cartridges. The tape covers the
print heads and should be removed before installing the cartridges. If
the tape is left on, it will prevent ink from getting on the pages as
the "Check mark" button on the control panel to enter the printer menu.
Run a diagnostic so the printer can attempt to determine the cause of
the blank pages printing. Press the up or down arrow to select
"Diagnostics." Press the "Check mark" button. Press the "Down" arrow to
highlight "PQ Troubleshooting." Press the "Check mark" button. The
printer runs a diagnostic and returns to a ready state when done.
Go into the Canon Printer Utilities. Click on Solution Menu folder. Click on Solution Menu icon. A new window will open up. Click on "Change settings or find solutions to problems. A new window will open up. This screen will give you 3 selections to choose from. They are: Printer Settings, Printer Status and Troubleshooting. You will be able to reset your ink cartridge levels from these windows and try to print again.
maybe it have the ink level chip which can be resetted by removing the cartridge and oning and offing the printer for 5 times within 10 minutes coz it saves data of a cartridge upto 5 use before only.. and 6th time insert it.
I would take out both cartridges and put them in again. Realign the printer and the error codes should remove themselves. Try turning the printer off and on before puting the cartridges in again. That may make a difference. You can let your computer know not to tell you when the ink is low too. Let me know how this work for you.
