This model Canon/Epson printer may only let you use genuine Canon printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the Canon cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled. This means you need to purchase and install genuine printer cartridges.

How do I fix the Epson T200XL Error?


It's merely Epson's way of telling you that the electronics in the printer think that the cartridge is empty (although this may not be the case !).
Fix : replace cartridge.

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help


  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    How ro avoid color cartridge while it is unrecognized because i wanna print using black ink only


    Most printers firmware from the manufacturers have hard coded the commands into the firmwares program to see that the color and the black ink cartridges are inserted before the printing process can begin. Electronically the voltage check sums will not be correct until both ink cartridges are inserted thereby giving an error or not enabling the print process.

    Check the status monitor. if ink is out press resume button for about 5 seconds. If the printer ink absorber is full follow this instructions. and if the error say that the cartridge unrecognized then you have to replace the cartridge.

    Canon MP600R ink tank not recognised U150


    I too was getting the error for unrecognized ink cartridge. Then the little green circ board fell out of the end of the ink cartridge and it hit me that maybe if I put in the little green circ board from the old ink cartridge of the same color, then maybe the ink cartridge would be recognized. It worked! So don't throw out an ink cartridge that still has ink just because of that error and hold onto your empty cartridges in case you need the little green/gold circ boards.

    Hope this helps.
