Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head. http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-40171-printer-not-printing-black
The MP600 does not use the 40 or 41 cartridges, it uses individual color (and black) ink tanks. But other models (MP190, MP460, MP470, etc) do use these cartridges. The error message you are receiving indicates that the printer does not recognize the cartridge you installed as a valid black ink cartridge. This can mean that either the cartridge is faulty, or that the printer has a problem.
I would suggest trying another new cartridge, and if you still get the same error, to contact Canon for support options if the unit is still in warranty.
Take the black ink cartridge back to the person who refilled it. The Microchip that's on the cartridge was not reset properly that's why the printer is returning that error.
You can try some steps before you take it to them to verify it. 1: reseat (take out and put back in) the cartridges into place 2: buy another black cartridge just to check if it will be recognized by the printer, if it does recognize it we know the cartridge is defective. If a new cartridge is also not recognize, start to check your warranty option with the manufacturer...
try to clean the cartridge on the copper side with tissue with and alcohol maybe the contact points doesnt meet or the cartidge itself is already defective. try also use an empty good cartridge just to to determine wich cartridge is defective.
Remove cartridge and remove the mains from the wall. Try cleaning the contacts with a cloth dampened WITH WATER, wipe it up with another cloth and let dry. If your old cartridge is not working again, try with a new one, generally is the cartridge which may become damaged, not the printer... hope !
