You should clean or replace the absorber pad at some point but most of the time you can get away with resetting the ink counter a few times before you need to clean or replace the pad.


1: Unplug Power Cord
2: Hold POWER and RESUME buttons
3: Plug in Power Cord
4: Release buttons after the printers starts up
5: Hold CARTRIDGE and RESUME
6: Press POWER
7: Release all buttons after the beeps
8: Press CARTRIDGE 16 times
9: Press RESUME
10: Unplug the Power cord

I cant print it says I'm out of black link and I just replaced it and it's flashing E 1 6


From http://www.refreshcartridges.co.uk/igloo/clearing-canon-pixma-error-message-e13-e16/

Locate the STOP/RESET/RESUME button on your printer which is represented by a triangle within a circle on the body of your printer and is usually in red, white or black as pictured below. With the reset button located hold it down for at least five seconds and then release it.

My office jet G85 won't print. No error messages appear,it has a new color cartridge,it copies, but won't print from my computer.


If it copies ok, then the issue is either the way it is cabled to computer or the print driver software settings on pc.... How is it connected via USB? Check port and correct driver is in windows/control panel/printers. Reinstall.

Printer suddenly will not communicate with the computer. Tried unplugging both wall plug and usb plug. Printer can print but only test page. Tried to uninstall, but computer won't allow me, gives error...


Hi,
Have you tried rebooting your PC? Do you see a printer Icon in the taskbar (right corner) if so click on it and you may see several que's and the printer is bound up, so-to-speak. The reason your able to do a test print is because that command bypasses any que's in memory. Turn your printer power off, then reboot your PC. Onces its booted up, turn on your printer. This will clear any que's and your printer should communicate again.
Let me know if this help you.
Thank you

Well, if the electronic circuit on the cartridge has blown, you have no other alternative then to buy a new cartridge. You can remove the cartridge and gently wipe the cartridge contacts. Turn off your printer, wait for a few min, then turn it back on. Put the cartridge back.
If that doesn't work,
  1. Open the cartridge access door.
  2. Remove either cartridge (not both).
  3. Close the cartridge access door.
    • If the computer message is Print Cartridge Error , then the print cartridge that is still in the printer is the problem cartridge.
    • If the computer message is NOT Print Cartridge Error (instead, it says that the cartridge you have removed is ...Either missing, not detected, or incorrectly installed ), then the cartridge you have removed is the problem cartridge.
There is a cmos battery in the printer, and, yes, when you remove it, the printer forgets everything (serial number, number of copies, etc). I have found a clip, but it says it only works for some HP printers. You can try that, but I am not sure that will help solve your problem.

Resolving a blinking light When an error occurs, the power light will blink continuously and an error message will appear on the computer screen. Read the onscreen error message explaining the problem and follow its solution. If no error message appears, go to the Maintenance section in the Printer Assistant and click any of the four main buttons. This will prompt the software to check the status of the printer and the error message should then appear. The following table lists possible causes and what to do to correct the problem. Symptom Possible cause What to do to correct the problem Power light is blinking Printer cover is open Close the cover. Printer is out of paper Insert appropriate media in the In tray.

  6. Replace the rear access door.
  7. Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
