My Canon IP1800 worked fine until I had to replace the ink. I changed the cartridges and since then it has not printed. It will not feed the paper in the printer to do anything. I have pushed the feed...

These are the steps:
1. Turn On iP1800
2. Push and Hold Resume button about 2 minutes
3. Release Resume button
4. Printer back to normal again.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe
