Question about Canon PIXMA iP1800 InkJet Photo Printer
Can i work with cannon ip1300 printer with only the black cartridge installed. recently i have refilled the colour cartridge but the printer was not recognizing the cartridge. hence i had no choice but to remove it.after installing the black cartridge the yellow light flashes 5 times which according to manual says
Five flashes: The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized
Possible causes are as follows:
The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.
The FINE Cartridge may not be the compatible with this printer.
Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the Print Head Alignment
You need to have a black and a color cartridge installed to use your printer. That doesn't mean the color cartridge has to be full. You can have an empty color cartridge in the printer and it will work as long as the electronics are good on it so the printer can recognize it's there. You cannot refill these cartridges yourself. Your printer remembers what cartridges have been in it so that it can reject refills (it sees the same serial number twice and catches you trying to not give Canon their money). You can use refills, but you need to get them from a refiller with a high turnover of cartridges so you don't get the same serial number twice. I recommend Cartridge World stores as they have high quality refills with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
