Do not throw it away. It has taken you so much cost ok?. Print blank can be caused by:

  • Purge unit is faulty cannot **** ink from ink cartridge
  • Print head is faulty
  • Logic board is faulty
In some cases short circuitry in print head can cause this problem. Please be careful of this. Replacing print head can damage new print head. I suggest you to bring the printer to nearest service center.

I hope this will be useful for you and please your rating

Regards,

Canon IP1500 no colour


hot water is not good. you should take the printer head for colour and put it in strong spirit. have it there over the night and it should work fine after that

Troubleshooting in scanning and printing


You have to reset that cart. before you fill it there should be instructions on how to do this on the refill kit you bought, you cannot just fill the cart and put it in the printer you will dmage the print head if you have not already done so. I cannot see what was done so I could not give you a solution but only tell you that the ink needs to be charged before you put it into the printer!!!

Compatibility of Ink cartidge.


The MP600 does not use the 40 or 41 cartridges, it uses individual color (and black) ink tanks. But other models (MP190, MP460, MP470, etc) do use these cartridges. The error message you are receiving indicates that the printer does not recognize the cartridge you installed as a valid black ink cartridge. This can mean that either the cartridge is faulty, or that the printer has a problem.
I would suggest trying another new cartridge, and if you still get the same error, to contact Canon for support options if the unit is still in warranty.

Refilled ink cartridges problem colour


this is not a printer problem, you have a problem with colour cartridge! u can fix this in 2 diferent way: 1. replace the colour cartridge with new one, or gently clean the nozzle cartridge with a wet tissue until the cyan colour mark a line on the tissue just like the others colours: yellow and magenta. maybe must repeat this several times.

Pixma iP1500:new ink cartridges fitted but no Magenta


Take a look at the mounting point. They break very easily on this model. If not broke, try cleaning with a swab and inserting the cart again.

I want to refill the ink cartridges (black 30 - colour31) myself....how do I do it?


Hi there,
Filling is easy - but messy. I use No 40 cartridges for my pixma ip2200.
For the black cartridge, carefully remove the label. Drill a 2-3mm dia. hole in the depression in the top. With a syringe fill, using about 10ml of black ink. Plug the hole with a suitable bung and away you go!
You will however lose the ink level indication as it is not a genuine cartridge - but that is unreliable anyway.
Don't refill more than a couple of times as the foam inside the case eventually perishes and all the ink runs out.

Whilst the cartridge is out of the printer give the jets a wipe with a wet tissue. This is usually quite effective in removing dried on ink.

You can do the same with 41 colour cartridges but it is a bit more tricky locating the correct place to drill.

Good luck

Printer head ip 1500


Printhead is dead, and here Canon gotcha because a printhead for ip1500 is more expensive as the whole printer.
So kiss your printer good bye and get a new one, but at least this time get one that uses cartridges with printhead ON THE CARTRIDGE (like HP and Lexmark) or, if you are in love with Canon, take one that uses the cartridges PGI-5 for black and CLI-8 for color, they also have sepparate printhead from cartridge but it seams they are more durable. And easy to refill, as well!

Hope it helped you in any way!

Rate this solution please. Thx.
