Re: ink or printers problem

Most likely the ink cartridges for this printer have a chip on them. This chip tells the printer how much ink is left and when it is low or out, you must replace the whole cartridge otherwise if you just refill it, the chip will still report the same amount of ink as it doesn't go by the actual ink level inside the cartridge, it determines the ink level by calculating approximately how much ink has been used while it was printing. So it doesn't matter how full the cartridge is, unless you replace the cartridge or reset the counter on the chip somehow, it will still display the calculated amount not the actual amount.

E500 canon not print

Make sure the correct driver is installed. Then attempt to do a test page. If the message to print is reaching the printer some printer light will flash to indicate such. If it flashes but does nada you may have a defective, electrically bogus print cartridge. If I remember correctly on previous Canons, the ink cartridges were only ink containers and not electrical units like on HP printers. If so, forget looking at the cartridge area - the issue could be either a mechanical one or one involving the printers electronics.

Sometimes printer electronics get bogged down and what you need to do is completely disconnect unit from power source and allow the printer to boot up anew like a computer. Often that does the trick.

It sound like either the cartridge is empty or not quite placed correctly or if you have replaced the cartridge with a replacement rather than a canon geniun replacement the printer may not like it

its may be worth removing it shut down the printer

Printer MX 700 regsiter 'Install printhead' after replacing ink cartridge

I'd start by pulling the print head and cleaning the contacts on the print head and the cradle it sits in. But, I'd expect the worst. These days if you use refilled cartridges you can expect all sorts of problems like this. Canon does not like to share it's profits and places all sorts of boobytraps for re-fillers (from life cycle chips to patented ink formulations that chemically react with non compatible inks). Also, If your printer has a large amount of prints it may just be that the service life of the print head was reached. Which is sad because even if it was working properly and still good, once the counter reaches a certain number, it's considered bad by the printer, forcing you to buy a new print head. HP is actually worse, not only did they pioneer this "anti tampering technology" they also do things like not making drivers for printers that cost $12,000.00 because it's over seven years old. But these days, everyone is doing it, so oh well.
Good luck.

I refilled HP 88 cartridge but printer (Officejet Pro L7590) still thinks cartridge is empty. How do I reset ink level?

The chip on the cartridge needs to be reset. You can find replacement chips on the internet but they cost about half as much as a new cartridge. Also, if you filled the cartridge incorrectly you can get air in the ink lines of your printer which will make it unable to print that color. Overall, I would recommend getting refills from Cartridge World. They always reset the chip, take care of the mess of filling for you, cost less than new cartridges, and are 100% guaranteed to work.

Kodak has just come out with a fairly low cost printer/scanner combo that has low cost ink. The printer sells for $149 and ink tends to run about $15 per cartridge.
You can also get any number of low cost ink jets from HP.
There are re-manufactured HP cartridges that are low priced as well if you really need to keep costs down.
Also, check They have a Canon printer/scanner on sale for $29.99, plus shipping. Almost worht tossing the printer when the ink goes out.
