Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer
I get this erroneous message-more than one ink tank of the following color is installed cyan Canon Pixma iP4200 When I go to print I get the message 'more than one ink tank of the following colour is installed. Black (5). Use only one ink tank per colour at a time.' I have to click the cancel printing button. I turn the printer off. Turn on again - then open the lid to see the Black (5) ink is flashing - so I remove it and then put it back then close and go to print and it works OK. WHY?
I see the (now old) 4200 available for $50..... get a whole new printer for the price of a set of cartridges.... Adorama Camera at Amazon or their own site.

It is the technology. Canon printers are made to burn big holes in the customer's pockets. 4200 gives near lab standard prints however, the user's are made to pay for this luxury. I have been using canon printers for the last 3 yrs(4200 for a year). The main objective of the manufacturer is to compel you to buy those cartridges which are shamelessly priced for more than 10 times there worth. Again I am almost sure that every single 4200 user has encountered problems with cartridges(Genuine canon) the cartridges are so made that the tiny circuit board on it will refuse for no apparent reason to respond. the only remedy would be to throw the cart.away and get a new one. Cleaning/deep cleaning/head alignment/nozzle check etc are all aimed at sucking the cartridges empty.Don't get discouraged by those scary warnings about refilling or compatible inks. For smarter people canon allows some tricks (override error messages ...) If you are a professional photo printer like me use your 4200 as if it is an offroad 4WD drive for 3 to 4 months and throw away.

Mine does it with the cyan and it worked for awhile...if I take a cartridge from another ip42000 cyan, it works. Any ideas?
