My printer won't recognise the new ink cartirdges

My Canon Pixma ip1600 will not recognise new ink cartridges. It refuses to believe that they are 'installed properly' - they are! It is flashing error code 1660. I've turned it off, taken out and replaced the cartridges countless times, kicked it, shouted at it and nothing seems to work. Anyone got any ideas?

    I have a similar problem: the computer started telling me that the printer's cartridges are either not installed properly or else not compatible. But I have not touched anything since the last time I printed from this printer.

I refilled my black cartridge of Pixma iP 1600. I have done it 3 times before and it worked perfectly until yesterday. Now when I refilled it the 4th time, the yellow LED blinks 5 times and then the green...


The manual for the PIXMA iP1600 says the following concerning the 5 blinks:

The ink cartridges are not properly installed, or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed (the ink cartridge EEPROM data is abnormal). Install the ink cartridges properly. Or, confirm that the supported ink cartridges are installed.

If you haven't already I would take a look at the electrical contacts on the cartridge to make sure they are clean (free of dust and ink) and then reinstall them in the printer. If the printer gives the same error, it's time to buy a new cartridge. 3 refills from a cartridge is not bad at all.

Hope this helps,

Steve

Both lights on printer flashing


If you set to black and wite it should also print pictures by the way, it does not accept grayscale because it won't be able to print in grayscale photo quality.

Canon ip1600


Dear hoppygink,
Canon pixma ip1200 series (ip1200,1600,2200) identify the first new cartridge installed in the printer and detects ink level properly unless you put another used cartridge or you its own cartridge to another printer. Once you do this, ink level of the cartridge become unknown. So, never exchange its own cartridge with another ip1600 printer. This will be back to normal condition when you replace with new fresh one catridge that never used before. This weakness has been improved by canon in pixma ip1300 series (ip1300 & 1700) anyway.
To prevent this problem occurs, you need to back up EEPROM data of the printer by using EEPROM restore tools before perform cartridge exchange. I will discuss this in Canon Inkjet Forum in the next coming chance. Please send me your email to: ijxpert@gmail.com so I can notice you immediately after posting the topic.
Regards,

Printer wont recognise new colour cartridge


most common, is there is a tiny piece of lint or paper shred, has worked its way between the ink cartridge and the print carrieage connectors,
take the cartridges out and wipe down the connectors on the cartridge and carriage with a lint free cloth or lens brush
Isopropyl alcohol is a good residue free cleaning fluid,
if no all the connectors answer, the printer assumes a wrong cartridge

not a guarantee, just something to try
