Bought canon pixma470 several months ago. Just this date tried to use, can't get ink cartridges to fit--directions very vague. Secondly, no software included. Finally, there were no ink cartridges included as stated on carton. Bought new ones this day, can't see how they install.

Instructions

1

Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.
2

Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.
3

Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.
4

Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.
5

Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.
6

Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.
7

Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.
8

Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly.

Tip

How to extend the life of your cannon printers and recycle ink as well


The main problem of canon printers nowadays is that it has lifespan when the waste counters of the printers become full you can no t print anymore.

To fix this problem all you need is intravenous fluid hose,phillips screw driver, drill,empty container and a lot of guts

first things first is open your canon printer using the screw driver after opening you'll find a hose where the printer cartridge sits this hose has a black stripe on it and goes directly to a catching pad which is commonly know as waste pads. pull out the hose from the waste pad and connect the intravenous fluid hose after you've done it secure it with a glue stick, glue gun or anything. Now drill a hole on the back side of the printer cover the hole must be of the same size of the intravenous fluid hose. assuminbg that you have already done this.insert the hose to the hole you've made and cover back your printer. now find a container for your waste ink. then you are done

to recycle the ink that you've collected on your catching basin just filter the ink out with a cloth and refill the waste ink as black. i've been doing these for a long time already and saved alot of ink for my black cartridge. hope this helps

Make sure all the protective tape on the Black cartridge has been removed. Also are the inks re-filled? I have seen many re-filled cartridges fail in a similar maner.

I bought an acer 23" all in one computer from a local box store less than one month ago. I have had many issues. I think this computer may have been previously sold as I see data dating back to 6/10/09. ...


Sometimes it takes computers years to sell off the shelf of a store. All the software will show a date of when it was preloaded. You figure you wait for production, shipping, then a consumer. Most likely it isn't a restock. If you call Acer they might be able to tell you when the computer was assembled, but that may be it.

If it is not printing as it should even though the printer cable moves along the printing area, it could be a cartridge problem. If you have an old cartridge with a little ink in it, try to load it and see if the result is the same. Otherwise, you have to buy a new cartridge. Also, check if the print head is clogged with ink.

It is possible that your ink cartridge is damaged. Try using an old ink cartridge that worked before and try to print again.Even if the ink cartridge you are using is full of ink, when sensitive electrical components are damaged, it wouldn't work.

You can also try using a different printer to rule out the possibility that your computer is the problem.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
