Confirm that the ink tanks are installed properly When replacing the ink tanks, confirm that the new ink tanks are installed properly. If the ink tanks are not locked into place, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be supplied to the print head.

  1. Check that the printer is powered on and open the front cover.

  2. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

  3. Check if the ink tanks are installed properly.

  4. When installing the ink tanks, push the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.

    Note: If the ink tanks are not installed properly, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be ejected.

How do I change cartridges for a Canon Pixma iP1500 color printer?


You should be able to open the top hatch while the printer is on and the print head will slide out to the middle so you can access the cartridges.
Remove the existing ink cartridges by pushing down on them until they pop out of place.

NOT PRINTING COLOR


I have the same problem.  At first I thought the printhead clogged but dipping it in solvent did not work.  I guess the only thing we could do is to buy a new print head, but at the cost it's going at, we might as well get a new printer.  Other than that try sent a RMA.
