Hi. Go to this site:

Pixma iP1600 Support

On the Support and Service tab there is a Search Our Knowledge Base block.

Below "Please enter your question:" type in "replace ink cartridge". (Without the quotes of course.)

Click on "Search". One of the choices that appears is "How do I install the ink cartridge(s)?"

Click on it and a window will open with pictures and animations to guide you through the process.

Thanks for using Fixya.

A "Fixya" rating would be most appreciated.

How to install ink cartridges

1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

2. Take out an new cartridge from its casing and gently remove the orange protective tape in the direction of an arrow.

Caution: Do not attempt to reattach the protective tape once you have removed it. Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head after removing the protective tape.

3. Insert the color cartridge into the right slot and then the black cartridge into the left slot.
Note: Push up on the nearest side of the cartridge until it clicks into place.

Canon ip 1600 'color cartridge not recognized and/or device not r


Two things. 1. check your cabling to make sure your printer is properly connected. 2. clean your printer's inkwells.
If you send me an e-mail, I can send you a service manual for a Canon Pixma iP1500. Manual is the same for both printers. I can also send you the software service tool. I have both, as I have a Canon iP1500 printer (cheap ink cartridges).
My e-mail address is: 7ohnnyramone@gmail.com

Refilling a cartridge


You need to use a very thin needle (25 gauge medical needle works well) on a syringe. There is a tiny hole in the canon 40 cartridge under the label which you need to fill. To refill the color cartridge (canon 41) as you look at the cartridge, the hole at the top is magenta, the hole to the left is blue and the hole to the right is yellow, use a separate syringe and needle for each color. Every now and then you will need to use some cartridge cleaner to soften/clean the sponge in the cartridge. I use 0.5cc of cleaner then let sit overnight before adding ink. You need to be sure the label is replaced well or use good tape to keep the ink from escaping.

The ink absorber is full for pixma 1880


This is the REAL working method of manually resetting Canon ip1880 - ip 1980.

1. Unplug the POWER cord.
2. Press & hold the power button.
3. Connect the power cord WHILE holding the power button.
4. Keep on holding the power button for about 30 seconds.
5. Release the power button. The printer should be turned off.
6. Turn the printer on and that's it!

NOTE: You have to do this every time you turn on your printer. Or you will get the waste pad full error.

Hope this helps.
