Question about Canon PIXMA iP3500 Printer
The light for the magenta cartridge on my Canon Pixma model iP3500 keeeps going off. I can see that there is plenty of ink in the cartridge. I reset the cartridge in the printer head and the light is On. When I close the cover and the printer head moves to the right, the magenta cartridge light goes OFF. Why won't it stay on? The Black, Cyan and Yellow don't have this problem.
The cartridge, as well as all ink jet cartridges has a chip inside that tells it how much ink is in the cartridge. Your cartridge is LYING, except it prevents you from printing without all cartridges working. ( same for my 6 color epson ). You need to replace the cartridge. I get my cartridges at a yahoo store called Inks4less. They have good quality for cheap.
There was a study done, analizing the amount of inks left in inkjet cartridges when they indicated empty, and the range was 7% to 25% ink still left.
