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.

I believe my ink dried out in the holder bracket. I cleaned it with alcohol and replaced the -color and black ink cartridges with new, and can only get a littles ink smeared across the page on the first...


If ink dried out it's done. Recycle it and get new cartridge. If cartridge is more than 50 dollars don't buy it. Go to Walmart and you can by a brand new cannon printer with ink cartridge for $49.00

My HP Officejet Pro 8000 Printer will not print red, even though I just put a new ink cartridge in. The yellow & blue work fine. Help!


Try to uninstall and re-install the printer's software for this can be software issues. If that would not work try to remove and put back in the ink cartridge properly. If this would not work check warranty then call the printer's manufacturer.

My printer is not printing anything orange, it comes out pink. Just put in new cartridges.


It sounds like your yellow is not printing correctly (probably a clogged nozzle). If your printer has separate cartridges, replace the yellow. If you are using aftermarket cartridges, you should try using OEM cartridges since they are spec'd to the printer. If you are usng aftermarket or reloaded cartridges, the ink may not be up to specs. In any case the yellow ink cartridge needs to be replaced. Make sure to run a deep cleaning and alignment after replacing the cartridge.

H P psc 2210 printer will not accept ink cartridges have used from this supplier in the past with no problems display reads "remove and check cartridge" this I have done but no cure.


Are you using cartridges that have been refilled? If so I would go buy brand new HP ink cartridges or I would find known working but used cartridges and try again. The ink cartridges on any inkjet type printer are not made to be refilled and if you were to call HP about this problem they would tell you to replace the ink cartridges with new ones and try again.

I replaced my hp ink catridges and the printer is still saying the ink is empty. What do I do?


You haven't mentioned what printer model but you can try th following.
Firstly, try removing your new cartridge and temporarily putting the old one back. Sometimes this will then show as a full cartridge even though it is empty, because the sensor electronics appears to get confused. Next, turn off your printer and turn it back on again, then take the old cartridge out and put the new one back. I cannot guarantee this will work, but it will be worth a try.

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.

Refilling LC37's


This answer:
http://www.refillinstructions.com/Brother/B6.htm
is wrong.  It doesn't work for LC37 cartrdges, because they are not the same as LC51.  There are no instructions on that site that work.  Here's what I do:

You don't have to take the shell off the cartridge; it would be better if you did, but it doesn't come off nearly so easily as the above link says.  It is glued together, so to take it off, you have to split the seam with a very sharp knife.  If you can do this, the refilling job will be a lot easier as you will be able to see what you are doing.  If you don't want to attempt it, you can still fill it "blind".

You need a 10ml syringe.  You don't need a needle.  The tip of the syringe is not quite long enough, so I had to make an extension for it.  I used a piece of skinny tubing from the inside of an old spray bottle.  I cut about 1" (2.5 cm) off and attached it to the end of the syringe using epoxy putty, like the stuff for patching leaking radiators.  You can get it at any hardware.  I put a piece of wire through it to keep it aligned while I was molding the putty around it.

After it sets, fill the syringe with 5ml of ink.  Push it into the outlet hole of the cartridge while twisting it until it is firmly stuck into the hole.  Turn the cartridge/syringe assembly so the syringe is up.  Pull back on the handle and **** 5ml of air from the cartridge.  Then gently squeeze the 5ml of ink in.  Fill the syringe with another 5ml of ink and repeat.  You may find it hard to **** air out without getting ink as well.  The cartridge is built like a labyrinth inside, so there are lots of places for ink to get trapped.  Twist and turn the cartridge and push and pull until you've got the 5ml of air.  Then again put the syringe topmost and gently squeeze in the ink.  If you have removed the shell, this will be easy to do.  The main point is to make sure you remove the same amount of air as the ink you put in.  Do not push the plunger valve.  If you do, you very likely will get a handful of ink.  

An LC37 only holds 10ml of ink, not 30 like the LC51.

When you are finished, you can gently push the plunger just slightly; if any ink comes out, you need to remove some more air.  You can damage the printer if you install a cartridge that has pressure inside it.  New cartridges have a vacuum inside; you can hear them go "whoosh" when you click them into place.  If not a vacuum, you need to at least have neutral pressure before you install it.  This is very important.  The printer has sensitive electronic sensors mounted roght at the business end of the cartridges.  If any ink gets spilled in there, your printer will likely be ruined.  Be warned.

It is about impossible to do this without any spillage.
Wash the cartridge in running water, shake out the excess thoroughly and then dry it with a paper towel.  Don't install it unless it is totally dry and not pressurized.

My printer will not print.


Is there a cable physically connecting the printer to the computer? If so, do you see the printer in Printers and Faxes?
