    The printer lights are flashing constantly,and I can't use it. it is a Pixma iP1600 and is about 4 years old. It was working well with black only, and I then had a cartidge refilled with colour . It won't work. A message comes up saying I haven't got the cartidge in properly, but I have fiddled with it a lot and still no better! I recently had some work on my harddrives etc etc so wonder if I need to re install the program??? Thanks.....ML

    I also have the same problem after I refilled both cartridges and cleaned the contacts. I have refilled them before with no problem.

Hi check if you have a paper jam first as it courses the lights to flash

Why dosesnt my printer print even though i have new cartridges?


Sounds unlikely but somteimes they sell defective new cartridges. Look for original packing, maybe still in your wastebasket, and verify expire date.

My printer won't print anything. The colour inks are empty so they are removed but the black ink still has some left so it's the only one still inside. I try to test print some black and white only...


you need to install all the print cartridges in the printer to work the sensors in the print cartridges are needed for the printer while if the empty cartridge is inserted ans not working you will have to buy anew one

My printer doesn't want to print in colour. I must have changed a setting. Even after I have changed all the colour cartridges and adjust the setting it would still not print any colour. It also doesn't...


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts

The printer will not work. The green bottom


The Print Cartridge Status light flashes when one or both of the print cartridges is improperly installed or malfunctioning.

1. Open the printer's top cover.
2. Remove and re insert both the black and colour print cartridges and try printing again.

If the problem persists then you need to replace either the black or the colour print cartridge.

Lexmark Z600 ONLY print test pages


Seemes very daft, and sounds like a twit, but not really.

When I recieved the new cartridge I placed it in the correct cartridge retainer in the printer matching up the dark green colour of the cartridge and the top clip, and it printed nothing even after a tryed re-seating it.
So I placed it in the other thinking maybe I somehow might have placed it in the wrong slot, so I placed it in the other (Colour), and set that up as I did the other, and it printed a blurred page but then stopped printing.
After that I then placed it back in the other cartridge retainer, set it up as the previous times when it did not work, and then it worked.

Seems strange and simple, but it did not work the first time at all, and after faffing with it finally did.

This might help someone, and then again might not.

You say it stopped working mid-print... possible paper jam? Ink cartridge not clicked in all the way? (they should all line up evenly across the tops).
In control panel->printers and faxes, right click on Canoni960 and choose properties. In maintenance tab try to do nozzle check and print head alignment. In lower right corner is status monitor, click to see if any useful information in there.

Orange flashing light on printer


No the ink is not to low you could try removing the ink cartridges and using a soft cloth wipe clean the little gold contacts on the cartridge and also the printer. Is the ink cartridge a original one if not even though the HP software states that there is 20% in there the likely thing is that the cartridge is empty replace and this should be OK.


I hope the first suggestion works for you as will not cost any money.

Thanks J
