SOURCE: Wrong Cartridge

The ink is filled and yet the printer flashes the orange alarm and says "wrong cartridge". I've taken all the components of the ink out and put them back in but no difference. I've also unplugged to reboot.

SOURCE: cannot recognize ink cartridge

I had the same problem. I was using original brand cartridges and it was still not working. Here's how I got it to work. I recommend doing each step and then trying to print a test page to see if it is working.

1. I used a Q-tip with Isopropyl Alcohol and cleaned the gold contacts on both the cartridge and the mating contacts in the printer.

2. Then from the Setup Menu, I found a menu called Tools. From there I ran "Align Print Cartridges".

3. From the same menu I also ran "Clean Print Cartridges"

4. I then ran a few test prints by going into the Setup Menu and then choosing "Print Report" and then selecting "Self-Test Report". It prints grid patterns in black & white as well as magenta, yellow and blue. The black grid pattern had some missing lines until I printed this report a few times.

5. I made a few photocopies and now the printouts no longer have large stripes of missing ink as it did in the earlier steps.

Good luck. Hope this helps.

Ink Cartridge in Canon iP 1300 is not recognised by the Printer. It is showing the following error message "An error occurred.Some ink cartridges cannot be recognized." and a message box is...


All of the newer printers have ink tanks that are 'chipped out', meaining that you can't just refill a tank with a syringe like in the olden days. If the printer reads the 'chip' on that tank and it says it's empty - it won't work even though there is ink in it.
Some refill places just put ink back into used tanks, but DO NOT have a chip re-setter, so the printer does not either: 1) recognize the tank, or 2) thinks it is still empty.
I have had very, very good luck with an on-line company called ABCINK.com for my Canon MX700. A five pack ( 2 Black carts. and one each of cyan, magenta and yellow) costs me only $18.95 delivered w/shipping. Genuine CANON carts. would have been almost $100.
Your Canon 300 is older than dirt. I know, I had one. Try another ink tank or attempt to CLEAN the print heads and nozzles. But really, I bought one of these old dinosaurs for $30 bucks 10 years ago, so you may want toss this 'boat anchor', because as soon as you, and if you, can get it back up and running - something else will fail.
Go drop $60 on a brand new 4-in-one printer that scans in documents & pictures, can scan in a printed page and convert it to a Word doc using OCR (Optical Character Recognition), makes copies, prints from your computer and has an Automatic Document Feeder and Reader so that you can load up 50 pages to copy, scan or whatever. (Also, it might be time to replace that old Penty 3 processor. FWM, Freekin' Wal-Mart has some ****-Jimdy 15.6 laptops for $325 - $350 out the door with tax and a whole ONE year warranty.)
DO NOT BUY A H-*** MACHINE. THEY ARE JUNK. THEY ALL OVERHEAT & JUST RECENTLY THEY QUIT MAKING THEM. REMEMBER THAT COMCRAP (COMPAQ) GOT BOUGHT BY H-***, SO NO **** FROM COMCRAP EITHER.)

I think I put in a wrong colored toner cartridge. Pages printing in wrong colors. Can't find a list of the cartridges I should be using.


The make and type of cartridge is generally given in the users handbook/manual provided with the printer. If you do not have that ,you can log on to Canon web site and then go to support. Select your printer model and you can find the the specification of cartridge to be used with your printer. The list of the cartridges is given below: BCI-3eBk Black ink tank, BCI-6Bk Black ink tank, BCI-6C Cyan ink tank, BCI-6M Magenta ink tank, BCI-6Y Yellow ink tank You can also go the this link and download the manual if you do not have the same http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip4000#Overview

How to refile the cartridge of canon pixma ip1300 printer


Hi,
Instructions :
  1. Remove the old ink jet cartridge from the printer following the manufacturer instructions. Close the lid on the printer to keep it free from dust and debris while you are refilling the Canon ink cartridge.
  2. Locate the ink tank on the cartridge. Put a 3mm drill bit in a drill. Drill a hole in the top of the ink tank on the cartridge.
  3. Gently insert the needle on the bottle of ink into the hole you just drilled in the ink cartridge. Avoid squeezing the bottle until the needle is completely inserted in the ink tank.
  4. Squeeze the ink bottle gently to refill the cartridge. Fill the tank with a little at a time until the cartridge is full.
  5. Remove the needle from the ink tank. Wipe the top of the Canon ink cartridge off with a paper towel. Place a small piece of duct tape over the drilled hole. Rub the tape to remove air bubbles and to make sure it adheres to the cartridge.
  6. Put the refilled ink cartridge back into the printer. Clean the head of the printer by running the printer software and following the instructions for head cleaning.
Good Luck!

MP730 "wrong cartridge" error


Well...
I can tell you what I did.

I came up with this "wrong cartridge" problem today, searched around the web -- there are a number of ideas -- and then started off on my own.

Perspective: I bought this MP730 in 2003 and have been filling the same set of ink tanks since then. Never had a problem with that. Don't know offhand how many pages I've printed, but I refill the ink every couple of months.

What I did...
I removed the ink tanks and the print head. The print head area was all gunked up with ink as well as the flanges the print head sits on (still in the printer). I DID NOT dunk the print head in water. Something in me says water and electronics is not a good thing. The refill ink package I buy comes with printhead and cartridge cleaner -- smells like alcohol, but who knows. I used that and a combination of Q-tips and kleenex to clean any ink away from the print head and nearby surfaces. I also dripped some cleaner into the print head holes the ink tanks plug into and then dried off the whole print head assembly. I purposely did nothing else. That way, I'd know if I'd found the solution.

I put everything back together and fired it up. The printer cycled itself, removed the "wrong cartridge" message and stood ready for me to print. Finished, right??? Not so fast.

I printed out a Windows test page.....it was totally blank!!! Pause....printed out 2 more.... blank... Uh-Oh.

So, I lifted the lid on the printer, lifted the print head lever, jostled the print head a little to ensure good contact, put everything back together and printed another Windows test page....PERFECT!!!

Note: some writers mentioned cleaning a switch off to the right in the printer. I looked at that area and it IS pretty gunked up. But I didn't touch it to clean it up. That way I had a better idea of what DID fix it. I left it gunked. Of course, maybe all I really had to do was wiggled the print head and put it back together. But at least my print head is clean now. ;-)

So, that's all I did. Don't know if it wil help you, but it's a start.

Check ink U071 cyan


Are you using genuine ink cartridges? If not, then perhaps there is no microchip on your ink cartridge. You can take the old chip off your used cartridge and put it on this cartridge and see if this solves your problem.

HP 1200C printer - ink light is on after ink cartridge has been replaced


Remove the new cartridge, put the old one back, if the ink light goes off, then the new cartridge is not good.

If the light still blinks then check the other cartridge(there are two coloured & black).

Ink tank


Users having problem like ink cartridge is only partial used, but error code appear to check ink cartridge, maybe trying to taking out and putting back, it works sometime and problem occurs again,
  • By replace a new ink cartridge will sure help as the partial used one would be faulty already, and if you are using Canon ink cartridge, do call up Canon to report the issue and they will exchange a new ink cartridge for the faulty partial used cartridge as it due to the unique feature that Canon has build on the ink cartridges not properly done, which resulted to be faulty. Canon's purpose is to prevent the usage of 3rd party ink cartridges.

Canon Pixma MP610 CARTRIDGE PROBLEM


HI. Try holding the reset button for 6 seconds to overide the error. This may dissable the chip so it won't report but will allow you to keep printing. Simply check the ink tanks visually.

Refilling will give the same error too, again dissable the error.

Error code: U150 The following ink tank cannon be recognized (Cyan)


U150 ink error fixed!

I too was getting the error for unrecognized ink cartridge. Then the little green circ board fell out of the end of the ink cartridge and it hit me that maybe if I put in the little green circ board from the old ink cartridge of the same color, then maybe the ink cartridge would be recognized. It worked! So don't throw out an ink cartridge that still has ink just because of that error and hold onto your empty cartridges in case you need the little green/gold circ boards.

This works!
