Question about Canon PIXMA iP6700D InkJet Photo Printer

Refilled ink cartridges not recognizby printer.

I have a Canon Pxma ip6700D printer that purchased in May, 27 th takes 6 ink cartridges: black, cyan, photo cyan, magenta, photo magenta and yellow. I refilled the cartridges with a refill kit &ensured I filled the appropriate ink cartridge with the correct ink from the refill kit and put them back in their respective places in the print head. I also made sure the electrical contacts on each cartridge was clean & firmly locked in place in the printhead. Now when I use the printer, the LED display on the printer states that I'm running low on ink on several of the cartridges, even though they're all filled-up & not overfilled. They are not leaking out any ink & the hole I made in each cartridge is sealed. Each ink cartridge has a red light that stays lit when full & blinks slowly when it's getting low & blinks fast when the ink is gone. The photo cyan cartridge blinks fast but ink is pesent. I had to push & hold down the "STOP/RESET" button about 10 sec. to get the printer to print again. Is it possible that the aftermarket ink refill is not compatable with Canon cartridges? I called Canon tech. support & they wouldn't help unless the printer was under warranty & directed me to their website for help instead, which wasn't helpful. Either I purchase original Canon cartridges, refilled cartridges from a reputable supplier or get another printer (extended warranty frm the store I bought the printer from). Plase help! I'm counting on your honest expertise to resolve this problem. Thank you for your time & help in this matter!!

Hi, I have the same printer. There is no such thing as a special chemical added to the ink. The cartridge has a memory chip and remembers the number of droplets used by each cartridge. This is Canon's way of getting you to buy THEIR INK at outrageous prices. You need to reset the ink level indicator on each cartridge that you refill. Then be sure to refill the ink cartridge before it gets too low. Check out a CIS system that are available for this brand of printer. Don't buy into this special bogus ink story.

I fixed the problem by using original Canon ink cartridges and not getting them refilled. Apparently their chemists put a chemical in all of their inks so that only their Canon printers will recognize. It's a guarded trade secret that no one else knows about, unless it was analized. Other ink manufacturers produce ink that looks exactly as Canon ink, but that's where the similiarities end.

If your printer did not good in times of reseting the cartridges do check the cartridge holder if the is some dirt inside or the terminal of your cartridge had wet by the ink when you refill the ink of your cartridges.

Hi, did you refill yourself or did you buy a refilled cartridge. If you purchased a refilled cartridge and the chip is missing, you will need to take the chip off your old cartridge and install on the refilled cartridge.

Canon all in one printer refill ink cartridges


i have just filled my mx 310 with the jet tec refills as instructed....but do not insert the rubber bungs...instead put some celotape over the filling holes... then with a needle...pierce the celotape where the hole is( pin *****).... this set up is now able to breathe as originally designrd. Mine prints fine now this has been done (trial and error), but i might try better quality ink next fill. Its also wise to use glossy paper 230gsm or over for good results.
GOOD LUCK.

The Canon ink cartridges have a chip that records the amount of ink fired from the nozzle. When they are empty, cartridge is finished. I recommend buying new cartridges. Welcome to inkjet printing.

Usually, it only takes on at a time. there  should only be 4 colors: Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and Black. Some printers have 8, one set is very small which is used for the printhead, but, they are still the same combo of colors. In that case is the only time you will have 2 of each color a small one for the printhead and a larger on for the actual printing.
