Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I have a canon pixma ip5200 and everytime I try to print the warning reads: "ink tank errors have occurred. Open the printer's cover and replace the ink tanks on which ink lamps are off." The blue ink tanks is always secure in it's place but the light is always off. As soon as I take the ink tank out and reinstall it the error light flashes again I have a very similar problem with an error message about an unlit lamp. In my case, it's the cyan tank that shows the fault. Every time that I remove and replace the tank, the lamp lights up, but it goes out again when I try to print anything. (The tank is almost competely full.)

Are your black ink cartridges genuine Canon ones?

Canon Pixma ip5200. Inner cover open


The inner cover is the part where the CD print tray goes. When you look at the front of the printer you should see CANON written above the output paper tray - just like in the picture next to you post. If you can't see the word - just fold up the flap.
