Hi Nicole,
The problem you are describing seems to be one of Genuine parts compatibility? Are you inserting the Canon replacement cartridges? if not then the printer will fail to communicate with them. I had the same problem, unfortunately these replacement/s carry printed circuits with information chips that only communicate with their genuine machine/s.
If the cartridges are genuine then maybe a fault on their circuit boards/chips and should be returned to the seller.
I hope this helps?
Happy New Year!

Does the canon pixma ip1200 need both the black and the colour cartridges in to print ?


You need both cartridges. It is a paradox that you need both cartridges to even scan on the mfp,s

I refilled my black cartridge of Pixma iP 1600. I have done it 3 times before and it worked perfectly until yesterday. Now when I refilled it the 4th time, the yellow LED blinks 5 times and then the green...


The manual for the PIXMA iP1600 says the following concerning the 5 blinks:

The ink cartridges are not properly installed, or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed (the ink cartridge EEPROM data is abnormal). Install the ink cartridges properly. Or, confirm that the supported ink cartridges are installed.

If you haven't already I would take a look at the electrical contacts on the cartridge to make sure they are clean (free of dust and ink) and then reinstall them in the printer. If the printer gives the same error, it's time to buy a new cartridge. 3 refills from a cartridge is not bad at all.

Hope this helps,

Steve

Printer Canon iP1700 - I have already put the new inkcartridge black & colour but the printer says inkcartridge colour is not installed properly. I have installed so many times but same problem.


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

Canon ip1600


Dear hoppygink,
Canon pixma ip1200 series (ip1200,1600,2200) identify the first new cartridge installed in the printer and detects ink level properly unless you put another used cartridge or you its own cartridge to another printer. Once you do this, ink level of the cartridge become unknown. So, never exchange its own cartridge with another ip1600 printer. This will be back to normal condition when you replace with new fresh one catridge that never used before. This weakness has been improved by canon in pixma ip1300 series (ip1300 & 1700) anyway.
To prevent this problem occurs, you need to back up EEPROM data of the printer by using EEPROM restore tools before perform cartridge exchange. I will discuss this in Canon Inkjet Forum in the next coming chance. Please send me your email to: ijxpert@gmail.com so I can notice you immediately after posting the topic.
Regards,

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,

Printer wont recognize new or old cartridge


Use a Q-Tip and some clean water to clean the contacts behind the cartridge in the printer and on the cartridge itself. Then use a pencil with a clean eraser to polish the contacts. Be careful not to touch the part where the ink comes out of the cartridge.

Also, are you using Canon ink or third party?
