Canon printer pixma ip1200

The printer has been flashing some lights. It occured an error either ink cartridges are not recognized or it needs to be installed. I have already checked both cartridges and both are installed properly..is there some sort of disconnection which I could not see nor detect?

Thank you.

    Just installed a new PG-40 black cartridge in my canon pixma ip1200 and I get the message that the cartridge isn't recognised when I try to print. The orange paper feed light is flashing five times then the power light flashes once. I read on another website that this cartridge and others like it will never work because they carry a chip designed to cause this problem. True or not? I don't know. Every one makes mistakes, but this seems like a nice little earner for canon. Sorry I couldn't help.

one solution is turn off your printer, and reboot your system, after rebooting, turn on your printer again. If that doesn't work try re-installing the printer drivers be sure to turn off the printer and reboot the system afterwards to refresh the system.

Hope this was helpful:)

Please check if there is not some dirt, or something blocking the contacts from reading. Also the ink level is measured by optical sensor that can also be dirty.
Also make sure you use an Original Canon cartridge.

Make sure the ink cartridge is properly installed. Or this is probably common problem with Cannon ink cartridge, replacing the cartridge will solve the problem, but you need check it first under maintenance on Control Panel.

Problem with my canon printer ip1300


You can try this it works for my 1500 printer.
Go to the printer settings and turn off the ink low messages.
Switch your printer on and hold the paper feed switch down for the count of five the orange light should flash. Then switch off the power and switch back on again the green light should stay steady. If you do not come right on this one you can email me at grayjem@mweb.co.za

Ink cartridges cannot be recognized in canon printer


Hello!
Remove the cartridges and gently wipe the cartridge contacts with a dry cloth, then put them back in. Then, hold the "resume" button for 10 seconds for each cartridge, that should reset them.
If that doesn't work, one of your cartridges (sadly) needs to be replaced.

Canon ip1200 black cartridge wont recognize after i refill


Dear lim,
Here a solution for you. The cartridge of this printer has memory chip that store ink level data inside. Once the cartridge is empty we cannot restore ink level data to be full. To continue using refilled cartridge you need to deactivate ink level detection function first. Perform this step: when the message 'The following cartridge cannot be recognized' appears press Resume/Cancel button. Do this for each cartridge you refill;if you refill both black & colour cartridge do this tip two times (once for each cartridge).
Please rate this as fixya ok.
Regards,
