At this point I would offer that you bight the bullet and get a set of OEM Canon cartridges and do all the deep cleaning etc and see where that puts you. The third party cartridges may have caused some kind of problem, and not any "damage"

How do I change ink cartridges on Canon Pixma MX700?


1 Turn on the Canon MX700 printer by pressing and holding down the "Power" button. Open the paper output tray by pulling up on the tray. An arm will unfold from inside the printer and hold the tray open.

2 Apply pressure on the ink cartridge tab and remove the ink cartridge. A flashing light on the outside of the ink tray will indicate what cartridge needs to be replaced.

3 Remove the film, orange tape and protective cap from the replacement cartridge. You can throw away any trash. Do not touch the metal contacts on the new cartridge; this may cause the cartridge not to work.

4 Insert the front end of the replacement cartridge into the ink holder. Make sure you are placing the correct color in the correct spot. There is a sticker on the outside of the holder indicating what color goes where.

5 Apply pressure on the cartridge where it says "Push" until the cartridge snaps into place. The once flashing light should turn a solid red indicating the cartridge was replaced correctly.

6 Close the paper output tray. The Canon MX700 will start cleaning the printer heads. You cannot print during this time. The entire process may take a minute or two.

Canon Pixma ip1500, bought new ink, cleaned print heads with alcohol, still not printing


Did you buy factory new Canon cartridges or third party cartridges.

If you are using factory new Canon ink, call Canon about their defective ink.

If you are using anything else, want to bet there is no such thing as a warranty.

My ink lamp does not light red-pixma mx700


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.

I had contacted Canon to resolve my problem.

Through the technician I am informed that the printer has to be sent back for service as one of the 4 pins on print-head print has dropped off leaving only 3pins that is why the error code U043 simply occur which is why replacing another new ink cartridge does not resolve the issue.

I have understand from him that:-
  1. Most of the time when error code flash up, usually are due to the unique feature that Canon has build on the ink cartridges not properly done which resulted to be faulty. Canon's purpose is to prevent the usage of 3rd party ink cartridges. Of course this causes inconvenient to users, but if users are not using 3rd party ink cartridges, once detected is Canon's ink cartridge issue, do contact Canon, they will provide house call for 1 to 1 exchange for the ink cartridge.
  2. Other times if by replacing new ink cartridge the problem for error code still occurs, it might be the pin on the print-head has lost the alighting, this will require for Canon to service to alight back the pin on print-head in order for the printer to operate smoothly again.
  3. If your problem is like mine, inputting the ink cartridge into the wrong slot, well I guess only have to contact Canon as the printer's components used seem to be highly sensitive, by input the wrong slot would have caused scatches on the pin, well it is better to have the ink cartridge remove by the expert than to DIY. (Maybe check with your own nearby technician if by any lucks they can help to rescue your printer, which I hope Canon does not have further enhancement on their printer with other Unique features to prevent users from using 3rd party technical support.)
I hope the above information will help all the troubled Canon printer users as I notice from previous search on this website, there are other users having problem like ink cartridge is only partial used, but error code appear to check ink cartridge, maybe trying to taking out and putting back, it works sometime and problem occurs again, by replace a new ink cartridge will help as the partial used one would be faulty already, and do call up Canon to report the issue and they will exchange a new ink cartridge for the faulty partial used cartridge.

Printer suddenly won't work


  • Replace a new Canon ink cartridge as it could be due to the unique features that Canon has build on their ink cartridge not done properly which resulted to be faulty. Report the issue to Canon if your existing ink cartridge is not from other 3rd party band, Canon should be able to do 1 to 1 exchange once confirmed that it is their ink cartridge problem. Cannon has build the unique feature to prevent users from misusing 3rd party ink cartridge on their printer.
  • Other times if by replacing new ink cartridge the problem for error code still occurs, it might be the pin on the print-head has lost the alighting, this will require for Canon to service to alight back the pin on print-head in order for the printer to operate smoothly again.
  • Or missing pin has dropped off from the print head, which causes the printer not able to read the ink cartridge, printer needs to be serviced.

INK


It might be ok but in general it is not suggested to refill your ink cartridges. Third party ink is never as good, may be to think or too runny then the Canon ink. It would definitely shorten the life of your printer. Look for high capacity print cartridges if you're looking to save a little money.
