Can I ask if the printer cartridge is genuine? A lot of Printers have terminals which make contact with the cartridge and it can tell if the cartridge is genuine or not. If its a non-genuine cartridge your printer is not recognising that the cartridge has been changed and still thinks levels are low. If its a refill it will void your warranty. Best to buy a genuine, if it is new and genuine take it back to the shop you brought it from maybe take your printer so they can have the problem of resolving the printer error... If they cannot fix it get your money back and try another store.

SOURCE: Black 3ek cartridge not printing

I had the same problem before with 3e black ink. It simply does not print too, so what I did if i get to print black and white i will set the characters into dark gray! it looks like draft printing but the things is it can be printed.. I tried to do every instructions available but to fail. I almost dump it till I decided to set it aside for a while. After a week I tried using it again, and it functions well. I guess the printer just want to say, "HEY BUDDY, GIVE ME A LITTLE BREAK!"

SOURCE: new cartridge won't print

  1. Make sure you removed the tape from the ink cartridge.
  2. Press the <Menu> button on the printers operation panel.

  3. Press the left [<] or right [>] arrow buttons to select [MAINTENANCE].

  4. Press the <Set> button.

  5. Press [<] or [>] to select the cleaning setting you want. Select [HEAD CLEANING] for normal print head cleaning. Select [HEAD REFRESHING] for deep print head cleaning.

    Note: [HEAD REFRESHING] uses more ink than [HEAD CLEANING], so perform [HEAD REFRESHING] only when necessary.

  6. Press <Set>.

  7. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and perform at least two Head Refreshing if the pattern is not correct.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: New Canon ink tank not recognized.

Check that the cartridge chip is not soiled or damaged in any way... Give it a quick clean, check that there's no ink anywhere else on the cartridge as there are sensor points that an LED uses to check the cartridge ink levels too.

If none of that works, phone Canon and request a replacement as some cartridges are known to have faulty chips.

Is the "Canon check ink 1688 col" error message a ransom ware virus by Canon simply to sell their ink cartridges?


Did you buy a refilled cartridge or refill it yourself by chance?
Many of the newer printers have chips in the cartridges that keep a count of how many times it's used. Some of the companies that refill cartridges don't do a good job and don't reset or replace that chip. If it wasn't genuine brand name, it was refilled even if they called it "new".
Depending upon what printer model you have, there may be a reprogram cheat or replacement chips for the cartridges.

Eror 1688 col blk


Are you using an aftermarket cartridge or one produced by Canon? I've had both success and failure with aftermarket cartridges. They are cheaper but sometimes that comes with a price: high failure rate. There might by plenty of ink in the cartridge but the chip in the front that the printer reads could have failed even though it's new. Try another black cartridge as a test. Here is a link to a site where this is explained in more detail:

Check ink


Try swapping out your black ink cartridges with new ones. This is a common occurence when using aftermarket ink cartridges. I use them myself because they're cheaper, but they tend to fail more quickly (even brand new ones).

"No Black Ink Cartridge" after a new cartridge has been inserted


It sounds like the actual ink sensor has failed. You can check if it has a print head cleaning routine in the software on the computer. Most likely the actual ink sensor has died though, I've seen this many times. Call Brother to confirm, or maybe if it's still under any kind of warranty: 877-276-8437

No cartridge the printer say. i put new cartridge in


It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?

Ink Cartridges needed replacing.


Hi,
Remove them, re-seat them a few times..

Clean the contacts on them and the printer.
Using a cotton swab or lint free cloth & distilled, or bottled water,
clean the electrical contacts of the cartridge

power down afterwards, reboot
Run alignment, head and nozzle checks from your maitainance in the printer properties.

Should be good then.

( new cartridges can be faulty too )

Regards
Richard.

Sounds like a bad cartridge, you may want to try an original, it may be worth the cost instead of a new printer. First clean contacts on printer w/alcohool and put the cartridge back in. Not fixed try a new one may be worth the $40
