Re: problem installing cartridges

Refilled cartridge is not suitable for printers. Because someday you will encounter problem that will destroy your printer. And the cost when you bring to service center is almost the same as new. so better to use original cartridge on it.

Hi, Recently my printer cartidrge ink got empty and then I had refilled it,after installing I am getting orange light flashing 15 times and continously.Kindly advice me what's the prob,it was working fine...

Mostly cartridges have a sensor in it. Once cartridge gets empty, the sensor show error. Then even if you refill the cartridge the symptom remains there showing empty cartridge. Try using new cartridges, not refilled cartridges..

Every time i turn my printer on it flashes E, 5... and the alarm button is lit. i installed brand new 40 black and 41 color canon ink cartridges, and the error still isn't fixed

r u sure new cartridge is not refilled one?

E5 error means cartridges are not readable.

When you refill your canon cartridge, especially for color one, it happens. (after 4~5 times of refills)

So you have to replace the cartridge with brand new one.

(for your additional reference, it doesn't happen to black cartridge)

So at least you can refill black...

If you would like to save money, try nozzle injection refill kit by ROADINK.
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.">

Try to refilled the ink tank replace it, but the warning still asking for a new replacement ink tank. Is canon pixma ip3500 do not accept the refill cartridge?

Try this:
1.With he refill cartridges installed; Turn the printer off then back on again.
2. Press the OK button and the red stop button at the same time and hold for 8-10 seconds.
3. That is it. The printer should now be re-set.
Please comment back and let me know if this solution still works. J

I refilled my black cartridge of Pixma iP 1600. I have done it 3 times before and it worked perfectly until yesterday. Now when I refilled it the 4th time, the yellow LED blinks 5 times and then the green...

The manual for the PIXMA iP1600 says the following concerning the 5 blinks:

The ink cartridges are not properly installed, or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed (the ink cartridge EEPROM data is abnormal). Install the ink cartridges properly. Or, confirm that the supported ink cartridges are installed.

If you haven't already I would take a look at the electrical contacts on the cartridge to make sure they are clean (free of dust and ink) and then reinstall them in the printer. If the printer gives the same error, it's time to buy a new cartridge. 3 refills from a cartridge is not bad at all.

Hope this helps,

How to reset printer to recognize refilled cartridges

Reset is not needed. Just turn off your printer power supply and turn it on. It will automatically detect the newly installed cartridge, provided the original compactible cartridge is installed.

In canon pixma ip1700 Alarm light orange flashes 15 times

Fifteen Flashes: The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized.
Possible causes are as follows:
- The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.
- The FINE Cartridge may not be compatible with this printer.
Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the Print Head Alignment.

Empty cartridge message after installing refilled ink cartridge

I've had the same problem. The answer is annoyingly straightforward and I found it on the Canon website but udner the wrong FAQ. On the left front of the printer there are 2 buttons, one above the other. The top one is the 'on' button. The 'resume' button is the button underneath this. Hold this down for 15/20 seconds, leave it and then the cartridge will start working and you can start printing.

Working with cannon ip 1300

You need to have a black and a color cartridge installed to use your printer. That doesn't mean the color cartridge has to be full. You can have an empty color cartridge in the printer and it will work as long as the electronics are good on it so the printer can recognize it's there. You cannot refill these cartridges yourself. Your printer remembers what cartridges have been in it so that it can reject refills (it sees the same serial number twice and catches you trying to not give Canon their money). You can use refills, but you need to get them from a refiller with a high turnover of cartridges so you don't get the same serial number twice. I recommend Cartridge World stores as they have high quality refills with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Printer won't process new catridges. These cartridges have been refilled.

Did you install the original cartridge? if you have the old empty cartridge, try to install it and check the error is empty cartridge..if so the problem is the newly installed cartridge. try to buy the new original one.
