Printer wont recognize new or old cartridge

My Canon ip1600 suddenly stopped reconizing the color ink cartridge. So I bought a new 41 cartridge, but same error. I then tried the new carttridge in another canon printer and it worked fine. The old cartridge worked in that printer also. I also am getting a few errors saying that the black cartridge cannot be recognized. What should I do next.

    I bought a third party ink for my canon ip1600 printer. It was working fine, and then it just stopped. I get a message that says that the ink is not installed properly, but I have taken it out and put it back many times. the ink cartridges are full, but I still can't print

    My Canon iP1200 ALSO stopped reconizing the color ink cartridge. So I bought a new 41 cartridge, but same error. I cleaned the contacts with Etanol but no results, this must be some scam to get us to by more cartridges?

    My IP1600 also cannot do printing.The printer cannot recognize my color cartridge.
    I've cleaned the cartridge but it still didn't work.
    My cousin had same problem with his IP1200.

    I've had used IP1500 before but it only lasted for about 3 months.


    I can conclude EPSON is much better.

Use a Q-Tip and some clean water to clean the contacts behind the cartridge in the printer and on the cartridge itself. Then use a pencil with a clean eraser to polish the contacts. Be careful not to touch the part where the ink comes out of the cartridge.

Also, are you using Canon ink or third party?
