Printer never used and paper comes thru without ink on it . thanks

Probably your printing heads or your ink has dried out. Try to clean the printingheads with a cleaning tissue and a cleaning fluid. If it doesn't work you need to replace the inktanks. The printinghead is a part of the inktank. It is the gold-colored part with the dots (the dots are actually the nozzles).

Cannot recognize inktank that it was previously recognizing.

there is a gadget sold on eBay (I got mine in England but it came from Hong Kong!) it re sets the chips in the cartridge.

Color Inktank

May be time to replace the print heads as a new unit is quite pricey. Refurbished from canon is about $150.00, print heads are about $50.00

Won't Print Any Ink

well? how old is your printer?. does your printer head is new?
reason why doesnt have printout:
1. the unit doesnt recognize the printer head:
solution: turn off the unit and turn it on again.
2. Defective logic board.
solution: replace logic board.
3. Defective printer head
solution: replace printer head
4. Clog printer head
solution: wash the printer head with water..make sure to dry
before you install it to the printer.
5. Defective purge unit.
solution: replace purge unit.maybe it wont suck ink because of the loose or broken springs under caping of the purge unit..
6. inktank.
solution: check the lips of inktank maybe it much shallow so it
wont touch the nozzle of printer head..
you need to cut the edge of the lips of inktank so it will touch
the nozzle of the printer head.
