Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer

1 Answer

I loaded the black ink like I have done so many times before, but a window is coming up saying it does not recognize my color catridge and will not print. I dont even have a color cartridge in the printer.

Some printers will not print while missing either of the cartridges, was the printer working without the colour cartridge before?
Try inserting a colour cartridge and see if that helps.

Ink cartridge not properly installed


I have gone through all the forums but none of them worked...

The correct solution for the problem is the canon printer needs to have both the color and black catridges present in the printer...
So even if you purchased new black catridge only you need to have the old color catridge to be placed in the place of color catridge....

So it will detect the catridges and if any of the one is empty it asks to select black at the time of printing and simply select it you will get a black print...

So make sure both the catridges either empty or full need to be placed to detect the catridges....

I hope it will be helpful.....

Black ink cartridge


you should be able to disable black ink printing by going to the printer preferences selection through your Windows OS printer & faxes function.

Alternatively, if you have loaded the printer monitoring CD that came with your printer then the ink status function should prompt you to disable the black cartridge if it detected it has run out.

Have a Canon PIXMA MP150, just recently replaced the Black ink cartridge. When I make copies I will press the black ink button for my black copies but the only light that come on is the color ink button. ...


the problem occurs mainly due to following reasons


clogged catridge head
*clean it using ammonia solvent

bad contact of catridge terminals
*clean the contacts of both catridge and catridge holder

Won't print black ink


In this case what i would request u to do is.......
Take out both the catridges from the Printer.........
Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry...........
Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out.......
Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds......
Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel..........
U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........
Now do the same procedure again..........
Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge.................
Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel..........
Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer the Colour Catridge should go in the right side and the black on the left........
Unplug the Power Supply from the printer.......
Press and hold the Stop/Clear button on the Printer and Plug in the Power Supply while holding the Stop/Clear button it should say clearing on the screen at that point u can go ahead and release the Stop/Clear button..........
Now the Printer will ask for the Date Time and Country Language.........
Set everything up......
Now try to Print i am sure it should work..........
Good Luck............
