Hello mpichan,
The cartridge is defective or you have not seated the cartridge properly so that the printer can not make communication with it!
Try reseating the cartridge and before installing unplug the printer from the wall for 70 seconds to clear the memory. Then plug it back in and run install cartridge. If this fails return the cartridge for another. ,,,,
thank u....

    Another cause will be a short within the printer itself. At one customer
    (fortunately a local one) I used a flashlight and spotted a tiny
    fragment of the cartridge chip stuck to the pins inside the printer.
    This was shorting out the connection and causing the printer to fail to
    recognize any cartridge in that slot. Removing the fragment solved the

    The Canon IP1600 does not accept refilled cartridges without the status monitor on the
    printer driver being disabled. To disable the monitor, follow the instructions below and then
    the refilled cartridge will be accepted and allowed to print.
    step 1 – Access the Driver Settings
    1. Click on the start menu
    2. Go in to Control Panel
    3. Click on Printers and Faxes
    4. Right click on your printer (Canon IP1600)
    5. Go down to properties
    6. Then click on maintenance

    Step 2 - Click on ‘View Printer Status…..’

    Step 3 - Click on Option

    Finally, click on enable status monitor. This will turn off the monitor and allow you to use
    refilled ink cartridges.
    If at any time you get the ‘Ink out’ message on your PC a light under your power button on the
    printer will flash. To continue printing, simply press the button and click the close button on the
    warning (marked X).
    You may need to do this a few times also run the printhead alginment page after.

    or try factory settings
    1) Turn off the printer on the network.

    2) Click and hold power button.

    3) Add a printer to the network.

    4) Press cancel / resume printing.

    5) Drop button. (If the system reports the discovery of “new device”,
    install the printer driver; after the installation is complete name the
    new printer as “Canon MPXXX Factory Mode”).

Can't find where the ink cartridges are on the cannon mp830 to replace

This multifunction printer is compatible with all of the following ink cartridges. Here is a list of these cartridges and how they you can get them:

PGI-5 Pigment Black
CLI-8Bk Black
CLI-8C Cyan
CLI-8M Magenta
CLI-8Y Yellow

All of the ink cartridges are easy to install and/or replace; all you have to do is keep the printer ON, then open the cover it will come in the position and then unlock the cartridge which allows you to remove and replace the cartridge.

These cartridges cost any where between $10 and $15 each. But if you want a good deal, I would suggest purchasing your ink supplies from Costco Wholesale as they provide good prices on packages.
