    Fake solution!! Try this:
    YOU CAN PRINT WITH THIS PRINTER...all you need to do is press the reset button for 10 seconds ( the one with the upside down triangle) print print something. when it tells you to replace the cartridge press the red triangle button for 10 seconds and it wIll resume printing,,,( beware when you do this you cannot monitor the ink levels you`ll have to keep your on the prints.....DO NOT LET THE CARTRIDGES RUN DRY THIS WILL SHORTEN THERE LIFE IF NOT KILL THEM )

You can do a factory reset on the canon printer so it will recognize your cartridge. I have tried refilling mine and got some errors but it worked after the reset, try the steps from this site. How to reset canon mp270 I hope it will work for you too.

Error occurred 6000


It's an ink level indication.
If you are using re-filled ink cartridges, try this.
To solve the ink level error in canon Pixma iP1800/Canon Pixma iP1880. This problem usually appear after refilled the cartridge on the canon printer and ink level indicator showing the ink cartridge is empty although you have filled a cc Ink into the cartridge. And if the problem occur you cannot using your printer to print. The solution you must reset ink level on the printer if you want your computer work again.

If you have a problem like that you ca follow this tutorial to solve your printer problem, here how:
Turn of the printer and Disconnect the power cable to the printer.
Press power button on the printer. While pressing the button connect the power cable to the power source (the power indicator will light in green)
While still holding power button press resume button twice - orange blink and return to green.
Release the power button, then the PC will recognize new cartridge installed (If the power indicator on the printer steady in green you continue to Steps 5)
Run the IPtools software, please await after this software detect your printer correctly or you can set the printer model on "Change Model" section.

Click "reset black and reset color" button to reset the ink level and Click "reset main and reset platen" to reset waste ink counter. After clicked the button you will see ink level of the cartridge on in the IPTol info has 100% and WP and WM has set to 0. Click Exit on IPTool
Turn off the printer and turn on again.

On the reset procedure above usually the problem found on steps 1-4 to make the printer steady light in green. On my experiment if steps 1-4 does not work on your printer, you can use manual reset method for canon iP1700 before continue to steps 5.
Good luck

Refilled ink cartridges not recognizby printer.


I fixed the problem by using original Canon ink cartridges and not getting them refilled. Apparently their chemists put a chemical in all of their inks so that only their Canon printers will recognize. It's a guarded trade secret that no one else knows about, unless it was analized. Other ink manufacturers produce ink that looks exactly as Canon ink, but that's where the similiarities end.
