The problem comes from a chip canon puts in each ink cartridge to tell the printer if you are using a authentic canon cart or if you are refilling you old cart's with new ink. This was a scam by canon to make sure you could only use their replacement cartridges and no other. (at $45 a pop)

Unfortunately, the chips seem to be defective quite often. I've got a magenta cartridge in my printer right now that says it's empty (it's not, it's new) or that it isn't installed properly (it is)

Look on Amazon and you will find others have had the same problem.

It is unacceptable for a company with the reputation of Canon to make a defective product and make no effort to fix it.

I am in the market for a new printer now and a new dslr camera but because of this experience, I will not buy another canon product.

The best solution for me is to get rid of the printer. If not South Africa, your assistant plans could maybe work for me. the problem is the exchange rate between SA Rand and $.

Thanks for the suggestion

Tip

Duplicate Cartridge Error - Which one is causing it


The purpose of this exercise is to rule out ink tanks that are behaving and isolate the one(s) responsible for the duplicate. Please perform the following:

1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.

2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.

3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as they are not currently installed in the printer.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.

5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of the issue is the last ink tank.

Hope this helps
Mike

RIP OFF EPSON, NEVER BUYING A PRINTER OR ANY SORT OF DEVICE FROM THEM AGAIN. WON'T LET ME PRINT WITH BLACK INK ONLY, BECAUSE YOU NEED YELLOW TO PRINT BLACK, YEAH? STUPID COMPANY!


It's up to you. Epson have best head design using micropiezo. we just to replace ink tank to continue printing. Or if using CISS, no maitanance. Just fill the bottle. All ink tank must be inserted, when printing, even we just print black, to preserve ink dried at head. Actually, if we just want black ink print out, we can insert empty yellow tank, but level indicator (program) not ink out.

Canon Pixma ip4200 printer, error 1414


Hello there,

I've gotten in touch with Canon and have something a little different to try. At the very least the error should change. (Sorry, gallows humor). Please read this entire response before taking action.

After the upcoming test procedure, I have included a link and procedure to contact Canon tech support. The assure me they will replace any faulty tanks.

The purpose of this exercise is either rule out ink tanks that are behaving or isolate the one(s) responsible for the 1414. You should write down the results of this test. Please perform the following:

1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.

2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.

3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as they are not currently installed in the printer.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.

5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of the issue is the last ink tank.


Click here for the Canon PIXMA iP4200 support page
Then click on e-mail support.
Fill out the form.
Under description, supply the following info:

Error 1414 Ink tank problem on my Canon PIXMA iP4200
The error won't go away.
I have replaced the <color in question> tank, reseated it, yet the error remains.

You will also need to list what inks are being used in the printer. State the type of ink that is being used and the order that the tanks are installed in the print head.
Provide the exact part number (such as BCI-6C, BCI3eBk, etc.) if possible.

The Canon support rep assured me they will be glad to replace the malfunctioning tank(s) for you at no cost. Please
respond with the results, and specify the ink tank(s) that were not recognized correctly.

They responded quickly, professionally and apologetically. They want to help get this resolved for you.

I hope this helps end the frustration you must be feeling. If you need additional help or clarification, click the ASK button.

Mike

If you could take a moment and rate this response, I would appreciate it.

Ink cartridge problems


exchanged the black cartridge (57): the printer told me there was a problem with it, that I should remove it and re-insert it. I did, the ink button still blicks. After several efforts the printer started to work again, printed one document and then told me there was a problem with the colour cartridge. I removed it, re-inserted it several times. Finally a test page was printed - everything was okay.

Then the printer refused to print anything - the yellow LED lamp blicks continuously. Have turned the printer on and off, have also shut down the computer and re-started.

The only thing that will work now is the black cartridge, if I remove the colour one.

Solution: Confirm the ink tank(s) are properly installed iP4300

Ensure that the ink tank is installed properly. Open the Top Cover, Paper Output Tray and Inner Cover, and then press on the 'PUSH' mark on the ink tank whose lamp is off until the ink tank clicks into place. Once the ink tank is installed properly its lamp will light red.
Ensure that all the orange tape has been peeled off as shown in (1). If a part of the orange tape remains as shown in (2), remove it completely.

(1) Correct (An L-shaped notch* appears on the ink tank.)


(2) Incorrect (Orange tape remains. Peel off the tape along the perforation.)
