    After sitting for 6 weeks or so without using the printer, I plugged it in, turned it on and it won't recognize the black cartridge. The nice gentleman at the store that previously refilled my cartridge said somotimes they electrically fizz out. I wen and bought a new one & same thing happened. I am going to try unistalling the printer and reinstall. Fingers crossed!

Hi. This might be stating the obvious, but try cleaning the contacts in the printer and on the cartridge with isopropal alcohol. I have a Canon Pixma MP520 which I have had for most of this year now, and it works fine. I am not sure if I will be buying another Canon printer after the problems I have just read on FixYa though! Another thing you might try is carefully bending the contacts on the printer that touch the copper strips on the cartridge to ensure they touch properly. I have not looked too closely at mine, but I presume there must be copper contacts of some sort that are spring loaded, which press up against the contacts on the cartridge when it is installed. Hope that helps.

Canon Pixma MP210 will not recognize high yield PG-50 & CL-51 cartridges.


The canon pixma mp 210 uses PG-30, CL-31, PG-40, CL-41
It will not recognized the PG-50 & CL- 51
See if you can return it and exchange it for the PG-40 & CL-41.
If not, the only other way is to transfer the ink into the other ink cartridges.
The cartridge cap can be removed by a sharp tap at the back end of the cover.
You can glue back the cover.
If there is an E 1,6 Error code, Ink has run out after you install your ink cartridges
Press and hold the stop/reset button for about 10 seconds to clear the error code.

I just installed a new CL41 Color ink cartridge into my Canon Pixma mp210, and it does not recognize it. It keeps saying the printer is empty, or displaying Error Code E5. ANother thing is when I go to see...


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.
