New printer? Or have you changed them before? Make doubly sure all tape is off the new cartridge and that you did not accidentally touch the gold surface of cartridge (can result in read errors). Wipe it very softly with a non perfumed baby wipe, yes! a baby wipe! I have had good success this way. Also do a clean with the printers own cleaning system and print a test page after each clean or step. Run virus checks and spyware checks on pc just in case. Does it give any other error messages? You may have a badly clogged printhead (so notorious this range of canons for clogs) use proper cleaning solution and cotton buds and thoroughly clean where cartrigde goes (printhead) do not be afraid, repeat until no residue comes away. Try printing now.

We changed the ink,and when we installed the catridges it doesn't work.It shows that the catridge doesn't have coloured ink.

If you are using compatible ink cartridge then the problem is that they are compatible with your printer try to use original ones or try an other compatible ink manufacture

Good Luck

Unsuported catridge 33 in lexmark p4350

It is most likely that your printer has a hardware problem. Either mainboard or "printerhead assembly". Re-install the drivers again, if the re-installation does not work then seek advice on cost of hardware parts.

Hello! I onw a Canon MultiPass MP700 printer (copy, scan and print) and I recently changed one of the 4 catridges and replaced it by a compatible one (BCI-3eM bought at Staples) as usual. I have never been...

Erm... the cartridge is wrong. There is not much more one can do to communicate the fact the cartridge is the problem.

Throw out the compatible one you bought - or if you want a refund, return it the store as faulty - and get a replacement. I suggest a genuine one since you had the problem with a faulty compatible (up to 30% of compatibles can be faulty)

I bet you a Fixya rating that once you replace the cartridge for a correct genuine item, your message will go away and your printer will once again be happy.
