Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer
I bought a canon 1p 1600 photo printer and it has never worked. The power light keeps blinking green and the cartridges are always on the right side of the printer (opposite the loading area). When I try to print I get an error message that the cartridges are not loaded properly and that they are in the loading area. As I said, they are not in the loading area and in fact I have to turn off the printer and manually move the cartridges from the very right part to the left where the loading area is to load the cartridges. I have looked on the website regarding how to load the cartridges and they snap in perfectly. As soon as I turn the printer back on the cartridges again move the right of the printer. Anyone have any insight? I would really appreciate it!
