Dear hoppygink,
Canon pixma ip1200 series (ip1200,1600,2200) identify the first new cartridge installed in the printer and detects ink level properly unless you put another used cartridge or you its own cartridge to another printer. Once you do this, ink level of the cartridge become unknown. So, never exchange its own cartridge with another ip1600 printer. This will be back to normal condition when you replace with new fresh one catridge that never used before. This weakness has been improved by canon in pixma ip1300 series (ip1300 & 1700) anyway.
To prevent this problem occurs, you need to back up EEPROM data of the printer by using EEPROM restore tools before perform cartridge exchange. I will discuss this in Canon Inkjet Forum in the next coming chance. Please send me your email to: ijxpert@gmail.com so I can notice you immediately after posting the topic.
Regards,

Does the canon pixma ip1200 need both the black and the colour cartridges in to print ?


You need both cartridges. It is a paradox that you need both cartridges to even scan on the mfp,s

When i try to print give message that '' ink has run out, replace the ink cartridge and close the cover" and so on the orange light is blinging.


Ink has run out mean in cartridge ink level counter reach zero level. Cartridge can not be used again even though it was refilled, because the counter still reads zero level.Replace the new cartridge or reset the counter using ip1600 ink level resetter. But I thinkthe more effective is to turn off the ink level counter. Just press the ink button about 30 seconds and then release. After that will appear ink level counters have been released.In the ink image on the monitor status will appear gray.

My computer is saying that my ink on my printer is out but I just bought the ink today what is going on?What should I do?


Did you buy an original or refilled cartridge??

SOME of the catridges for Pixma will read empty even when new and full. ESPECIALLY the refilled ones.

I would return it to where you bought it along with your printer and test the new cartridge IN THE SHOP.

Iam using genuine canon pg40 black on my ip1600 Itis being rejected over and over suggestions?


If it's an older ink it could be saying it's empty, If it's a new cartridge Canon will replace it for 30 days from date of purchase. If all the tapes are removed you might check the contacts where it plugs in to the printer, wipe with alcohol as well as the contacts on the cartridge.

Empty cartridge message after installing refilled ink cartridge


I've had the same problem. The answer is annoyingly straightforward and I found it on the Canon website but udner the wrong FAQ. On the left front of the printer there are 2 buttons, one above the other. The top one is the 'on' button. The 'resume' button is the button underneath this. Hold this down for 15/20 seconds, leave it and then the cartridge will start working and you can start printing.

Canon PIXMA MP140 can't recognize the cartridge even though the ink tank is full


Make sure the cartridge is seated properly. Clean printer heads when installing according to instructions. Don't cut corners and just try and print, so through all the steps. Sometimes just turning your printer off and then back on helps too. Sounds like it doesn't know it has a new cartridge.

Canon PIXM iP1600 ink replacement


Each time the cartridge is removed from the printer an "empty cartridge" message appears and a blinking amber light will come on, on the printer. Holding the paper feed button down for 3-5 sec. will allow you to override the counter.

RECOGNITION OF GENUINE CANON INK CARTRIDGE


I posted the original problem. Although the cartridge was genuine I had taken it out and reinserted it as I wasn't sure I had loaded it correctly the first time. Advice from my local retailer was that this was a mistake. Canon PIXMA printers no longer recognise a cartridge once it has been removed. Solution was another new cartridge which I shan't remove until it's empty. When this second cartidge is empty I shall try the first cartridge again as it is still full and unused. It has yet to print anything! Why Canon's helpdesk couldn't help is a mystery. I conclude that Canon's printer management systems are unfriendly to users. They are friendly only to Canon. I hope my experience will help others especially those considering buying a Canon printer. dudbob
