The black ink keeps drying up and will not print out black print


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

I have changed the colour ink on my canon mp460 but it still say empty


CL41, this is the one you are using for your cartridge.

Did you change your cartridge with brand new one or refilled one??

If you did with refilled one, the ink level won't go back with full.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the method how printer measures the ink level.

1. Each cartridge has a serial number.
2. As soon as installation in printer, printer recognizes the cartridge by serial #.
3. And the printer starts to count the printing document.
4. After reaching certain print counting, the ink level will show "low ink"

So my answer is even if you refilled your cartridge, the ink level won't change,
since printer cannot weight the cartridge or.....some other technology to measure each color ink level.

Thanks.

My Canon MP460 Printer will not recognise new ink cartridges? Do you know why? They are the correct ones!


When you say does not recognise the cartridges. What does the display and pc say? Also observe the orange and green lights and tell us what sequence they flash.
Thanks

Why won't my canon printer MP460 read my ink cartridges? It keeps saying "Cannot read ink cartridges" on the black ink.


Hi, are you using Canon or refilled cartridges? If you are using Canon, there's a problem with the cartridge. If you are using refilled cartridges it's because the cartridge has been used. When you first put a Canon cartridge in, the printer reads the cartridge and knows it's a new one, I'm not sure of the mechanics of it, I don't know if it blows a chip or fuse in the cartridge but it can read a new one. If it's been used, it can't read it so you get the message that it can't read it.
Turn off the staus monitor and the message will go and you can carry on printing, it won't tell you when the cartridges are empty, you'll just notice the print quality going downhill.

Ink level indicator is showing empty, but just recently replaced


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

How can i print in black and white only on my mp460 . my color cartridge is empty. i dont need to print in color


You can go into the printer properties and set the printer to print "Grayscale" only. That will override the data information coming from the PC.

However, if the ink levels are being checked at POST (Power On Self Test" time you may still be notified that the color ink is empty and not be allowed to print.

why not go to a WallMart or Office Depot and pick up the required Canon cartridge.

Do not even consider using third party ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. That stuff can and usually does wreak havoc on the printer and in some cases can be enough to cause the manufacturer to void the warranty on the printer.

How to take empty cartridges out


1. Cover the outlet hole with the orange outlet seal that came with the cartridge (a rubber band will hold this in place) to prevent ink loss during refilling or with your finger over the outlet port while wearing latex gloves .

2. Use the "L tool" provided to push the Sealing Ball into the cartridge (tap on the 'L tool' if the ball is stuck). If you can't see the ball just above the "push" then peel back the top label on the reservoir side of the cartridge to expose the Sealing Ball. This is the ball Canon used to plug up the hole after they refilled the cartridge.

3. Attach the needle to the syringe and fill with the correct color ink.

4. Slowly inject approximately 13 ml. of Black Ink or 6 ml of Color Ink slowly into the filling hole until the chamber is almost full. Unused ink may be returned to the bottle.

5. Seal the hole using the Green Plug. Put your finger on the green plug and twist until it is seated well in the hole.

6. Remove the orange outlet seal (or your finger) from the outlet hole.

7. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.

8. If you have trouble getting your cartridge to print and the sponge side of the cartridge looks dry then drill a hole (or burn a hole with a hot paper clip) into the top of the sponge side of the cartridge. Stick the syringe needle into the sponge and fill with ink. You do not need to seal this hole.

If you are filling cartridges to use later, leave the orange outlet seal rubber banded onto the cartridge. This will prevent your sponge from drying out.
Note: On the CLI-8 and PGI-5 series cartridges, there is an electronic counter embedded in a small computer chip/board. This counter starts at a high number and decreases for every character printed. Eventually, the counter reaches zero. At this point, an error message is generated by the printer. If you click "OK" to the error message, the printer will continue to print.
If you have trouble getting your printer to print because it thinks the cartridges are empty. Look on your printer for an orange blinking light. This is your reset button, usually the paper feed button also. Hold this button in for 5 seconds until the light goes out. Note: this will not reset the ink level back to full.
