Paper detection and new ink cartridge

I am trying to print a cd label on my canon pixma ip1200 printer using a cd label sticker, but i am just unable to do so, the display shows that there is no paper available. how am i supposed to print on a 10.25x5.20 cd sticker paper label?
next problem, i just replaced the ink cartridge with a new one, but the ink indicator still displays an empty cartridge. how should i refresh the ink settings?

This sounds odd. Anyway, if printer prints, there's nothing wrong with printer detection.

First and foremost, what type of paper and color of paper are you using? What text/image color do you have in your file being printed?

Does the canon pixma ip1200 need both the black and the colour cartridges in to print ?

You need both cartridges. It is a paradox that you need both cartridges to even scan on the mfp,s

I wanted to print my documents here but my printer always says that the ink cartiledge is not properly installed and i already reinstalled my canon printer pixma ip1200

Make sure the ink cartridge is properly installed. Or this is probably common problem with Cannon ink cartridge, replacing the cartridge will solve the problem, but you need check it first under maintenance on Control Panel.

How do i align my printhead on canon iP1200

I assume you are using windows.
  1. Go to START, SETTINGS, PRINTERS, double click on the printer icon. Go to FILE, to PROPERTIES, then click on the printer SERVICES tab. Click on ALIGN the print cartridge button and follow instructions on the screen. hope this works
  2. Align the print cartridges Typically, you only align print cartridges after installing or replacing a cartridge. However, you may also need to align cartridges when:
    • Characters are improperly formed or are misaligned at the left margin.
    • Vertical, straight lines are wavy.
    From your printer:
    1. Load plain paper.
    2. Press the Menu button, and scroll to Align Cartridges.
    3. Press Select. An alignment page prints. Once this page prints, your automatic alignment is complete.
    From your computer:
    1. Load plain paper.
    2. Open the Canon Pixma IP 1200 Utility.
    3. From the Cartridges tab, click Align Cartridges... . The Cartridge Alignment dialog appears. alignprintcartridgesa.jpg alignmentpanther.jpg
    4. Click Continue to print the alignment page.
    5. On the Alignment Status dialog, click OK if automatic alignment is successful. If automatic alignment is not successful, clicking OK will return you to Utility Main Window.

Canon ip1600

Dear hoppygink,
Canon pixma ip1200 series (ip1200,1600,2200) identify the first new cartridge installed in the printer and detects ink level properly unless you put another used cartridge or you its own cartridge to another printer. Once you do this, ink level of the cartridge become unknown. So, never exchange its own cartridge with another ip1600 printer. This will be back to normal condition when you replace with new fresh one catridge that never used before. This weakness has been improved by canon in pixma ip1300 series (ip1300 & 1700) anyway.
To prevent this problem occurs, you need to back up EEPROM data of the printer by using EEPROM restore tools before perform cartridge exchange. I will discuss this in Canon Inkjet Forum in the next coming chance. Please send me your email to: so I can notice you immediately after posting the topic.
