    I have the same problem with the yellow tank. The cartridge is full, and after reseating the cartridge the light stays on. But after closing the cover, the same recurring error message appears. I have cleaned the the little circuitry board on the cartridge and the place where the cartridge resides with rubbing alcohol to no avail.

    Same issue. Replaced with Canon ink cartridge and it won't allow my printer, scanner, copier or fax to work. It shuts down and paralyzes the printer.

I had this same problem too and it's so frustrating because you cannot even scan and scanning is completely unrelated to ink. We called Canon and found out that it was a bad print head (ink tank). They ended up sending us one for free so I recommend calling them to report the problem. 1-800-828-4040.

Lost manual for MP610. How do I change ink?

Here's the way to change ink in the MP610. Its pretty straightforward, and I have tried to give you pretty comprehensive instructions below. However, you can download the instruction manual for the MP610 off their website if you still have trouble after reading the following:
Instructions for when ink tank runs out of ink in Canon Pixma MP610
1. Open Paper Output tray (finger fits in rounded indent in the Paper Output tray--open gently
2. Make sure machine is on and lift the Scanning Unit cover which will uncover the ink tanks. Once unit is opened the print head holder will move to the center automatically.
3. When/if you leave the scanner unit open for a while, the print head holder will move back to the right, but you can move it to the center as in the action described in 2 by repeating the opening of the scanner lid sequence. Whatever you do, DON'T move it yourself if it doesn't come into the center automatically. Do wait until the ink tank holder stops!
4. Open the inner cover and remove the empty ink tank(s) the empty one/ones will be flashing fast-(red light) so it will be easy to see which one to remove. If you have more than one empty tank to replace, make sure to do them one at a time.
5. Removing the packaging from the new tank by peeling off the orange tape in the direction of the arrow and make sure it is completely off and then.remove the orange protective cap.
6. Snap the new tank in place so it is in the same position as the one you just removed. The ink lamp will light up red when you press down firmly on the little square icon and you will also hear it snap into place.
7. Follow the same steps as in 5 and 6 for each additional tank you need to replace.
8. When you have replaced all the tanks with new ones, close the inner cover and then make sure to close the scanning unit cover.
The machine will automatically perform the print head cleaning cycle, so be patient. Once all the noise stops you are good to go!

How do you remove/clean/replace print head on pixma mp610 BK nozzle blocked.

Try this :

The gray-colored arm (it's not that small) is to the right of the cyan cartridge. It is the arm or extension of the gray-colored hinged cover. Remove all ink cartridges, lift the gray-colored arm up, and pull the print head out. Clean the print head with a cotton ball soaked with water or rubbing alcohol. Dry and re-install the print head.

Ink tank not recongnized

Unfortunately you have a bad cartridge.

Every now and then we get a defective cartridge, and Canon will replace it. If it's generic or refilled, you just need a new one. It's a cartridge problem, not a printer problem

PIXMA MP610 can't scan without ink (makes no sense)

You can scan when out of ink. You have to press and hold the reset button (red triangle inside a circle) for five seconds which tells the printer to ignore ink problems and continue.
