Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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?
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.
