Have you installed the print head? It's a separate item in a foil colored sealed package. It must be installed and locked in before inserting the ink tanks. If you have done this and still get no lights on the ink tanks, there is something wrong with the unit itself.

How to refill pixma mx700 magenta ink tank without


The colors are individual. That machine takes the Canon CLI-8. I would suggest reading your manual on what the procedure is for changing the ink cartridges out, it typically varies slightly by machine. There should be an option somewhere one of the menus to change the ink cartridges. When you buy a replacement be sure you buy from someone who isn't trying to scam you. I would recommend Cartridge World, of course, or OEM. Do not use cheap online cartridges, you will only have headache later.

Ink lights are not on error UO43


Perhaps one of the ink tanks is not snapped in properly. The cartridge lamps on this model glow red when they are properly seated/installed.

These little red lamps also flash codes:
Slow flash (approx. 3 second intervals) - ink low
Quick flash (every second) - ink cartridge empty

I use my MX700 only for black & white matters. It sometimes refuses to operate, informing me that my color cartridges have run dry. How do I overcome this?


Unless you have chosen to print in "true black" where only the black ink cartridge is used, your printer automatically will use some inks from the color cartridge to make black. (The reason given is so that your color cartridge will not dry out and cease to function when you do need it for color).

You did not provide your operating system. If you can find your printer name listed in "Control Panel" (usually in "Printers and Faxes"), right click the name and choose "Properties". See if you can find an option to print only using the black ink cartridge.

I hope this helps!

My Printer is saying, some ink tanks are not


If the cartridges are in the correct position, you may have defective cartridges. If you are using after market cartridges, the electronic sensor chip built into the cartridge may be defective. I would remove the cartridges and try using OEM cartridges. You can also try new aftermarket cartridges from a different vendor. This should clear the problem.
Let me know if this does not solve the problem and we can look into other potential solutions.

Nstalled ink tanks into the appropriate slots, and instructions say the 'ink lamp lights red", but there is no light.


Normally the red light comes on when the ink tank is empty.
When a new tank is inserted the light goes out.

MX700 Will not scan with an empty ink cartidge?!


I just came up with the same problem. But if you keep pressing the right most button (the red one) for 5 seconds the message "replace ink cartridge" disappears and then you can use it as a scanner.

Printer Pixma MX700 will only print in color not black and white?


Try going into Control Panel and click on printers. Normal 0 when the next window comes up, Click on MAINTENANCE, the Properties page will come up and this is where you can do the NOZZLE check/clean and other functions. The NOXXLE is more than likely clogged from lack of use and needs to be cleaned. It might take several times to clean it. Hope this helps. Bud
