I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help

  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    How do you load new printer cartriges

    To replace an ink cartridge using the fonth.gif ink button, follow the steps below.
    1. Make sure that the printer is on. The fontp.gif power light should be on, but not flashing.
    2. Lower the output tray, then open the printer cover.
    3. Press the fonth.gif ink button. The print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position, the fontp.gif power light begins to flash, and the fonth.gif ink out light corresponding to the ink cartridge that needs to be replaced begins to flash or remains on.
    4. Open the cartridge cover. Pinch the sides of the ink cartridge that you want to replace. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it properly. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
    5.Remove the new ink cartridge from its protective bag. Place the ink cartridge vertically into the cartridge holder. Then, push the ink cartridge down until it clicks into place. Do not apply excessive force to the cartridge.
    6. When you are finished replacing the cartridge, close the cartridge cover and the printer cover.
    7. Press the fonth.gif ink button. The printer moves the print head and begins charging the ink delivery system. The fonth.gif ink lights start flashing. This process takes about one minute to complete. When the ink charging process is finished, the printer returns the print head to its home position. The fontp.gif power light will stop flashing and remain on, and the fonth.gif ink out light will turn off. The fontp.gif power light will continue to flash while the printer is charging ink. Never turn off the printer while this light is flashing.

    E5 error

    HI ...

    This error comes in when the cartridge is not installed correct ... I would suggest you remove and then re-install the cartridge using the below steps:

    Removing Ink Cartridges:
    1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.


    2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.

      Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.


    3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

      Note: Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.


    Installing ink cartridges:
    1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

      Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.


    2. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot

    3. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)


    4. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.

      <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

      <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

    5. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

    6. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
