Re: Error message says there are two cyan cartridges

I assume you have checked that you have one of each color cartridge, and have them in the proper slots?

Does it say which cartridges are being identified as cyan?

Do you have any spare cartridges?  Even empty ones.  If so, try swapping them out one at a time until the error goes away.  It may be a bad cartridge. 

If you're using refilled cartridges, it's also possible they filled the wrong color.

I haxe recently purchased a brand new canon mp530 that is still under warranty.I don't allways have the problem but often enough for it to be one.Adout 90% of the times I try to print I get an error...

I notice that you saw error message 'check ink c'. This means the printer want you to observe cyan ink cartridge. so,what happen before this message appears?. Please make sure that cyan ink is not empty. if you are sure the ink not empty,then remove cyan ink and reinstall it,else try dry clean ink cartridge contact or you may use contact cleaner before reinstall it. if you have have another cyan ink cartridge that is in good condition,compare it. if this works,means cyan ink cartridge is faulty then you need to replace with the new one. but if the problem still persist,it may caused by carriage unit or logic board problem.

Wrong cartridge 093-982 cyan toner unsupported

are you using a dell-branded toner cartridge? if yes, then you should replace the toner cartridge sensor and machine control unit (MCU). if no, you can enable the non-dell toner mode on your printer's operator panel. how? press menu, down until "configure" & press select; down until "maintenance" & press select; down until "non-dell toner" & press select; down until "on" & press select.

You need to remove the cyan cartridge, and thoroughly clean the inside of the printer (please use proper printer cleaning kit, not a damp cloth!). The sensors can get crudded up with loose toner inside the machine.

Konica minolta error

I had the same problem and found that one of the toner cartridges must have not been seated properly. I removed the black toner cartridge and re-fitted it. The printer now works fine again with no errors. 17H is a code relating to a fault in the rotation ......... possibly one or more toner cartridges need checking. Use the menu on the printer to turn it to the appropriate position (i.e. engine menu then select replacement of whichever toner you are checking).
Hope this fixes your as well.
