Take out all the inks and power up, re install one at a time slowly and should be OK, if not, one of the sensors is bad and will need a shop repair. Make sure you can see ink in each of the clear plastic windows when held level.

I installed new printer cartridges - computer doesn't respond why?


Three possible causes -
- Your ink cartridge is fake or
- your computer set up requires you log on as administrator to install peripherals if it is a shared PC.
- You did not switch on your printer while your PC was booting to allow it recognize the printer set up.
Solutions:
If you can afford it, get another new ink cartridge from an authorised dealer and try again. Secondly, check whether there are administrator priviledges attached to installing new ink cartridges. You can view your profile setup from the Control Panel to confirm this
Finally, switch on your printer immediately you power on your PC so that the booting process can recognize your printer setting. Do check that the ink cartridge you are using is approved for your printer.

Hi. My printer will not recognize the magenta ink. I tried replacing it with 3 different new ink cartridges, but when I try to make the printer charge the new ink, it does nothing and says I'm out of...


Hi

Some ink printer had ink resetter and just go to ink set up.
If your printer have ink resetter, do it otherwise it will not recognized new ink installed.

If not, some new ink cartridge when the tape is remove, there are cases that the sticky leaf on the ink cartridge, just rinse it with warm water or alcohol to detect the ink cartridge. Turn off your printer and your computer. Then return the ink and open your printer and computer to print again.

Note : Use only ink that is compatible with your printer because it you use other cartridge it will damage the chip set of your printer and it will not recognized any cartridge at all. SO beware.

I hope it helps you.

I replaced the ink cartridge with a new one, and the printer does not recognize it. Will not print. I opened a second new ink and installed it, but still no recognition. Help!


Sometimes ink will get on the contacts in the ink cartridge cradle causing the cartridge to not be recognized. Use a cotton swab with a little bit of alcohol to clean the excess ink from the contacts where the ink cartridge plugs in.

If this doesn't fix your problem, it's time for a new printer.

Ink cartridges cannot be recognized in canon printer


Hello!
Remove the cartridges and gently wipe the cartridge contacts with a dry cloth, then put them back in. Then, hold the "resume" button for 10 seconds for each cartridge, that should reset them.
If that doesn't work, one of your cartridges (sadly) needs to be replaced.

Printer says ink cartridge not recognized.


Take the black ink cartridge back to the person who refilled it. The Microchip that's on the cartridge was not reset properly that's why the printer is returning that error.

You can try some steps before you take it to them to verify it.
1: reseat (take out and put back in) the cartridges into place
2: buy another black cartridge just to check if it will be recognized by the printer, if it does recognize it we know the cartridge is defective. If a new cartridge is also not recognize, start to check your warranty option with the manufacturer...

New Magenta Ink is not recognized after installed


Hi, it sounds that the issue can be caused by a defective ink cartridge that installed or a printhead that can recognize magenta ink cartridge. To identify which causes this issue please try the following:

1. Reseat ink cartridge
2. Replace ink cartridge with a specified ink cartridge for your printer.
3. If above steps wont resolved that issue, please call your printer manufacture and ask for service referral or process warranty options.
