Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

My mp600 keeps saying close inner cover-which is closed

My printer is new. It worked for a short time and then wouldn't recognize the yellow ink cartdrige. Put in new yellow ink, now the printer has error message that says the INNER COVER IS OPEN-PLEASE CLOSE INNER COVER and press ok to continue." The cover is closed and I can't get the printer to print or the error to go away.

I had the same issue, turning off didn't solve it.
There's a plastic flap the width of the print tray just inside that I flipped up and it solved this problem. It is directly in front of the ink tanks. I'm assuming we flipped it down and forgot about it. It seems it needs to stay up, although you wouldn't notice it when it flips down when you close the top, as it closes just fine with it down. It's easy to overlook. This took me a few hours to realize.

The top of the flap has a half circle cut out of it in the middle.

    More instructions - when you get to the link above, search for "inner cover open", then click on "Close the inner cover", and it shows you where it is.

I replaced a black cartdridge epson sx 510w, but the printer doesn't recognized it?


I would recommend the following:
  • Remove the cartridge from the printer.
  • Turn the printer off.
  • Wait 30-60 seconds.
  • Turn the printer back on.
  • Reinstall the ink cartridge.
If the printer still doesn't recognise the cartridge it is likely to be faulty. In which case I would recommend seeking a replacement from wherever it was purchased.

Dcp j125 wont recognize the ink cartdrige


Yes, it can be VERY frustrating. I would start with cleaning off contacts on the cartridge and on the printer where the cartridge plugs in. ... If it is a refurbished cartridge (or refilled) it's sensor internally could just be worn out. If you have tried multiple cartridges that are new or known good, it is possible your printer has a hardware problem too. ... If you know someone else with the same model of printer, try the cart's in the other printer to see if they are sensed good.

possibly because you bought non-original cartridge (it does not recognize the printer). Try to mount the old ones again and see if you recognize the same message persists imprimanta.Daca ignorance of cartridges means that problem is another possible carrier on the outer cartusele.If with the old cartdriges you have another message then it is a problem with the new purchased cartdriges and should replace them

Printer wouldn't work - said cartridge jammed - I took coloured one out - can't now get it back and the other one will not go into middle of printer for me to but the one back into position


Hi Good daY!!! Check your printer if there is something that block your print head. after that turn off your printer and then move the cartridge into the center and then remove the ink cartdriges. after that turn on your printer without the ink cartridges, now your printer will recognize that your ink cartdriges is missing after that insert the ink (insert it properly) and then see if your printer would work now.

Thank you for using FixYa

My black ink ran out so I replaced the ink


Hi:
I have used the printer series that you have for years, and once in awhile, I get a new cartridge that won't immediately print. Often, there is just a bit of dried ink residue on the print head, and that won't allow the cartridge to work correctly.

Some simple things to try are :

1) Remove the black cartridge. and take a damp paper towel and gently swab the print head area. Next, apply some pressure to the sides of the black cartridge, until you see black ink oozing out of the print head. Repeat if needed. Once the ink starts flowing, blot off the excess, and install the cartridge.

If you can't get ink to flow, then the cartridge might be bad. Most of them have an expiration date on the packaging.

My printer is not printing..page comes out blank. inside, all the lights are flashing on the ink cartridges...any ideas what's wrong? thanks


this message means that the cartdriges are empty...
if you have bought new cardridges and lights still flash then the printer just dont recognize them right.
possible cause 1:
dirty cartdrige (or printhead) chip contacts > clean them with alcohol and cotton (switch printer off first).
see the chips in this photo:
https://secure.datatekusa.com/images/canon%20PGI5.CLI8%20refillable%20cartridge.jpg

possible cause 2:
bad printer controller: the chip in the printer that communicates with the cartdriges is gone mad... take the printer to service...

all the above are valid assuming you bought original cartdriges if not then do so...
