    When you open the lid to your printer the ink cartridges should move to a position for you to replace them...

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help

  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    In the maintenance section Inkjet Cartridge Repacement does not work. The cartridge does not move into position to be replaced.


    Does it make a grinding noise when you change the button to replace the ink? As if it is trying to move the cartridge holder to a position where you can replace the ink?

    If the cartridge holder has like a lock to keep the ink cartridges in place, try to use a flat object that you may insert to push it down.

    One or two things- you may have not close that ink latch properly so it won't move, or the mechanism for printer is damaged.

    Thanks for your time and using Fixya Online Support. Cheers!

    Epson stylus sx200 refuses to acknowledge black ink bought direct from epson

    I believe the DX series and the SX use the same system

    # Determine which ink cartridges are not recognised.
    # With the ink cartridge holder in the ink cartridge replacement position, lift up the ink cartridge holder lid and take the cartridge or cartridges out.
    # Check that the cartridge is a genuine Epson ink cartridge - look for the EPSON branding and T0xxx codes on the cartridge labels.
    # Check that the cartridges are correct for your Epson product.
    # Wipe the green Intellidge Chip on the cartridge that is not recognised.
    # Check the chip contacts within the ink cartridge holder for any debris or dried ink and wipe with a lint-free cloth if necessary.
    # Check that the plastic at the bottom of the cartridge has been pierced.
    # Check that the cartridges are in the correct slots.
    # Reinstall the cartridges into the ink cartridge holder in the correct order.
    # Push the ink cartridge down firmly. It should click into place.
    # Repeat this for any ink cartridges that were removed.
    # Push the ink cartridge holder lid down. It should clip into place and be secure.
    # Press the Stop button, this will return the ink cartridge holder to the right hand side of the unit.
    # If the error light flashes after the print head returns to the home position, the ink cartridge may not be installed properly.
    # If the red light is no longer displayed, but Status Monitor still reports a Non-Genuine Ink warning.
    # If the red light is still on the printer, and Status Monitor indicates that an ink cartridge is not recognised, follow the steps below.
    # If the problem remains, there may be a fault with the ink cartridge.

    HI ...

    This error comes in when the cartridge is not installed correct ... I would suggest you remove and then re-install the cartridge using the below steps:

    Removing Ink Cartridges:
    1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.


    2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.

      Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.


    3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

      Note: Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.


    Installing ink cartridges:
    1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

      Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.


    2. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot

    3. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)


    4. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.

      <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

      <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

    5. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

    6. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
    Please vote if this helps ... Cheers :)

    Color cartridge errors

    The only reason for getting error "PU IN CARTRIDGE" is that the cartridge is not installed correctly. Follow these steps to reinstall the cartridge which will resolve the problem:

    Note: The same step can be performed for error "photo ink in use" but if this does not resolve the issue, you can try and change the cartridge.

    Installing / Replacing the BJ Cartridge Follow this procedure to replace the BJ cartridge:
    1. Make sure the MultiPASS is plugged in.
    2. Open the document tray.
    3. Lift the document guides to open the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder).
    If the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) does not open easily, slide the document guides outward and then open the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder).
    Or slide the Document Feed Lever to either the automatic or manual setting.
    4. Pressthingtopress.gif. If installing the BJ Cartridge for the first time, skip to step 6.
    Caution: Do not try to manually move or stop the cartridge holder since this may damage the unit. Do not touch the components shown or any metal parts since this may adversely affect operation of the unit and/or affect print quality.

    The MultiPASS has an automatic protection feature that helps keep it from overheating. If the cartridge holder does not move, unplug the MultiPASS and let it cool for several minutes. Then plug it in again.
    Press thingtopress.gifto move the cartridge holder.

    5. Raise the blue cartridge lock lever on the cartridge holder and remove the BJ cartridge.
    Caution: Discard the old BJ cartridge immediately according to the local laws and regulations for disposal of consumables.You may want to place it in a plastic bag to keep any residual ink from spilling. Spilled ink can stain any surface; protect yourself and your work area. If removing a BJ cartridge to use one of the optional BJ cartridges, be sure to store the BJ cartridge in the container provided with your MultiPASS. Otherwise the ink will dry and affect print quality.

    container.gif 6. Remove the new BJ cartridge from its package, then remove the orange protective cap (1) and tape (2).
    Caution: Discard the cap and tape. Never attempt to reattach them to the BJ cartridge print head. Install the BJ cartridge immediately after removing the cap and tape. Spilled ink can stain any surface; protect yourself and your work area.
    7. With the label facing outward, insert the BJ cartridge into the cartridge holder. Lower the blue cartridge lock lever until it locks into position.
    lockinpos.gif 8. Press thingtopress.gif.
    The cartridge holder moves to its home position on the right side of the unit and begins cleaning the BJ cartridge print head. This process takes about 55 seconds.
    Caution: Do not try to manually move or stop the cartridge holder since this may damage the unit.
    9. Close the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder).
    10. Close the document tray.
    Note: If you need to unplug the MultiPASS, wait until the unit is in standby mode (date and receive mode displayed in the LCD). Otherwise the cartridge holder may not be in its home position causing the BJ cartridge to remain uncapped and dry out.
