    They are genuine canon cartridges that i have been refilling for 5 years.

    I have the same problem - error message saying that I have the wrong cartridge - but in my case when I open the cover the set of ink cartridges will not glide over into the usual position where you could access/replace the individual cartridges. So now I have no way of checking the cartridges .

    Is the cartridge you are using genuine canon or a refill?

Its not a true fix but I had the same issue. I turned off printer and slightly moved the paper thickness lever over a few inches. I turned it back on and the cartridge error was off. I do get a pop up from my printer program on the computer every time I initiate a print job asking to correct the lever, I click OK and it prints. I know its aRube Goldberg fix but I need this printer every day for work and for now it works.

Rover,

There in is the problem, these cartridges are not made to be refilled. You are lucky to have got away with this for this long. The most likely scenario is that your printhead has now failed which is why it will not recognise your cartridge.
The first thing you might try is to go out and buy a new cartridge. If this fails, then you will need to replace the print head. In this case, you would be better off calling it quits and getting yourself a new printer.

I am sorry if this is not all that you want to hear, but that is the facts and I would be doing you an injustice to tell you otherwise.

    This is not the case friend, I recommend you read up on the issue before you state what you think are the solutions. This has nothing to do with the cartridges. Please do a search on th issue and read it. People are expecting help here, not anecdotal remedies.

Try cleaning the printhead and the area inside the print where the print head connects. Use folded tissue soaked in a bit f methylated spirit. If this still doesn't work, then it most certain that the cartridges have become incompatible and have to be replaced. Cartridges becoming incompatible is usual, sometimes resulting from expiration. If replaced with original cartridges the issue should be resolved

Good luck & God bless!

Wrong cartridge showing on printer


I had same problem of wrong cartridge error on canon multipass 700. I read some of this site's remedies and tried them. First I realigned printer head , then I removed cartridges and cleaned the place where the cartridge sits at bottom with 1 alcohol soaked q-tip ( 1 for each color) and reinserted the cartridges again. Left the printer off for a few days. When I turned on printer , It warmed up and the wrong cartridge message was gone and I was able to print again. Wow! Thanks again for all your help.

Alarm on: reads wrong cartridge in window


Problem may be due to your not printing for quite some time. The ink can start to dry and clog the print heads.
Use a Q-tip slightly moistened with water to clean cartridge ports and print head.

Canon MP700 - Wrong Cartridge


Hello !

Many cartridges now have expiration date chips built into them. So, since you mentioned that the cartridges are "old", they may have expired. Check the date.

Hope this helps.

The cartridge it's talking about is the printhead and not the inks. It's telling you you need a new printhead.QY6-0064-000 around $40.00

Wrong cartridge


I have the multipass mp700 and have just experienced the same message ..... wrong cartridge. After reading the manual, from the disc, it means that there's something wrong with the print head, most likely needs cleaning, but it won't clean because the printer is sending a malfunction message. I will be trying to clean the head and if that doesn't fix it then I'll buy a new print head. Good luck with the problem.

Alert! Wrong Cartridge message


If you are absolutely sure that cartridge is installed correctly, the contacts where cartridge may be dirty. Clean gently with soft lint free cloth with small amount of rubbing alcohol and retry. If problem persists the contacts may have been damaged.
