Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
It is my cynane blue & it has plenty of ink
First thing to check is whether there's any soiling on the chip (eg: ink smear or similar). Try removing the cartridge and gently cleaning the chip with a bit of tissue and then replace it.
Otherwise if this an OEM (ie: Canon branded) cartridge, it's possible that the chip has been damaged and you can get a replacement from Canon.
However, you can save yourself problems in the future (as well as open the option for refilling) if you get a chip resetter (the most popular keyword is "redsetter") as this can actually reset problem chips and get them working.

In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer ONLY WHEN PROMPTED, to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken. Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.
