Ink cartridge (not) installed properly

Whenever i try to print, an error message pops up saying that an ink cartridge is not installed properly. I've taken them out and put them back in numerous times, and nothing seems to be working. I know they are the right cartridges and that they are properly installed. But the printer refuses to print. Machine has n error message stating: Install yellow cartridge". I have uninstalled and reinstalled it several times to no avail. Please Help!!!

Unplug machine from power outlet. take all carts out. wait 5 min. plug machine to power. wait until machine demands carts. reinsert carts and make sure they are secured. answer display when asked if you have changed.

If you still have the error message use a original brother cart.

    Have a look into the cart holder. Is the position of the led contacts which give info about the ink level in a good position? If yes, like shown in the pic, the led is defective: The cart holder needs replacement.

Good job in re-seating the cartridges into the printer. Try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge has gone bad.

I just inserted a black PG 40 ink cart and theres an error coed 5 indicating that i need to insert a color cart. i set my ink stat to black only and gray scale and it still wont pint


I think you need to have both cartridges in your printer in order to print. If you have put the PG-40 only, the printer can't connect the electric circuit and won't work. Canon's manual explains the error code: the ink cartridges are not installed, or a non supported ink cartridge is installed or the ink cartridges are not installed properly.
So, my guess is either to pop in a Cl-41 and print or, if both cartridges are in, remove them from the printer and gently clean the electric circuit on them with a dry cloth. You can also clean the cartridge carrier. Put the cartridges back in and try printing. If that doesn't work, try holding the "resume" button (triangle in circle) for about 10 sec for each cartridge, that should reset them.

Hope that will help solve your problem!

Ink cartridge (not) installed properly


For the Canon iP1800 printer are you sure you're using the 30 for black and 31 for color?

And make sure they "click" when installed. That should confirm that they're nice and tight in their ink compartments.

Besides that, maybe reinstalling the printer drivers could do something?

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...

Cartridge error


How I solved this problem was, I took out the color cartridge (which seem to be the one giving the error message) and worked only with the black ink (and chose print black and white )

My color ink cartridge had been refilled at Walgreens. The Black ink cartridge is an original Lexmark

Did you make sure that the colored tape was removed from the back of the ink cartridges? The manufacture puts the tape on there to protect the circuits during shipping. If the tape is still there it would not be able to communicate with the printer or computer.
