Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Printer will not recognise cartridge

When I try to print the message "the follwing ink cartridge cannot be recognised" is shown. This is then followed by black, color or both! on different occasions. Similar messages apply when I try to scan.

The cartridges are correct and I have been using them for the last 3 weeks. They are also partially full.

I have tried turning off and unplugging the printer. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled it to my computer all to no avail.

Does anyone have any ideas before I reluctantly throw it away and purchase a new one. It is only 14 months old.

Ive just filled my ink cartridges but have the following error message when trying to print: (see add details section)


You need to reset the chip in the cartridge that tells the printer when it's low. The part can be found on sites that sell refill kits.

My black ink button on my pixma mp495 printer is blinking. Why?


A B LED light denotes that the black ink cartridge is running low.
A C LED light denotes that the colour ink cartridge is running low.
If the alarm light is on (lightning bolt in a triangle) it should be accompanied by an error code.

The led screen on the printer will flash a letter E and will then be followed by two numbers:

I use 3rd party ink and why my color ink light up at my printer pixma mp 287


This will either be because your printer is having trouble recognising the cartridges or warning of low ink because the cartridges have been refilled. Connect a computer to the printer and it will hopefully give you more info.

If your printer cannot recognise the cartridges try wiping the contacts on the front of the cartridges and re-installing. If your printer still doesn't recognise the ink cartridges then sadly they will need replacing.

If it is just a low ink warning then carry on printing untill the printer thinks the cartridges are empty and prevents you from printing. You can them get around this message by pressing the stop/reset/resume button for 5 seconds and continue printing. More information on this can be found here: http://www.refreshcartridges.co.uk/igloo/the-infamous-canon-resumestopreset-button/

Hope this helps.

Dell 942 AIO printer won't recognise black cartridge:


I think you purchased a black cartridge with bad electronics. Basically your cartridge can't communicate with your printer and you should exchange it for a new one. There is no way to "fool" your printer into accepting refills with bad electronics. What you can do is when you get the message that you aren't using genuine cartridges and it won't be able to estimate ink levels is to check the box indicating to ignore the ink levels.

No cartridge the printer say. i put new cartridge in


It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?
