I have encountered the same problem, and after doing some research I found it to be a faulty chip in the ink cartridge (tank) itself. The problem disappeared when I bought a new one. The cartridge in Canon printers are equipped with a chip to ensure that you don't use counterfeit or unbranded ones. I might also be responsible for reporting levels to the driver, but I suspect that it first & foremost is a tool for them to make you stick to their brand. One can figure why...

Colour don't match the screen light blue on the screen will be light pink when printed


If you have used non canon ink tanks that will be the problem.'

If you have used genuine canon ink then you may have placed the tanks in the wrong place.

Also try using genuine canon paper as that could also be the problem.

Canon Pixma 9500 suddenly starts producing light prints


I'm not sure if this is possible with the 9500 (it won't be if the 9500 uses chipped cartridges)...

But have you installed the photo version of a Magenta or Cyan in the Non-phone cartridge... ie: PM instead of M, or PC instead of C.

It's a long shot as I don't know that particular models age, etc... but it's been done (by me included *blush*).

IP4200 duplicate ink tanks.


Hello there scubadave,

I've gotten in touch with Canon and have somethinga little different to try. At the very least the error should change.(Sorry, gallows humor). Please read this entire response before takingaction.

After the upcoming test procedure, I have included alink and procedure to contact Canon tech support. The assure me theywill replace any faulty tanks.

The purpose of this exercise iseither rule out ink tanks that are behaving or isolate the one(s)responsible for the dupliucate error. You should write down the results of thistest. Please perform the following:

1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.

2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.

3.Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank properly. Ifit does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, asthey are not currently installed in the printer.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.

5.If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks areinstalled, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, ifyou inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another inktank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of theissue is the last ink tank.


Click here for the Canon PIXMA iP4200 support page
Then click on e-mail support.
Fill out the form.
Under description, supply the following info:

Error- Duplicate Ink tank problem on my Canon PIXMA iP4200
<Describe how error occurs>
I have replaced the <color in> question> tank, reseated it, yet the error continues.

Youwill also need to list what inks are being used in the printer. Statethe type of ink that is being used and the order that the tanks areinstalled in the print head.
Provide the exact part number (such as BCI-6C, BCI3eBk, etc.) if possible.

The Canon support rep assured me they will be glad to replace the malfunctioning tank(s) for you at no cost. Please
respond with the test results, and specify the ink tank(s) that were not recognized correctly.

They responded quickly, professionally and apologetically. They want to help get this resolved for you.

I hope this helps end the frustration you must be feeling. If you need additional help or clarification, click the ASK button.
