CL 51 Cartridge for IP1600

Why is this cartridge being sold as compatible, yet the printer doesn't recognize it? Is there a way around this or am I stuck with the low vol cart 41? HELP!

Re: CL 51 Cartridge for IP1600

Canon's compatibility list says that the IP1600 will only take the low yield cartridges. The only way you could use a high yield one is if you buy a compatible (non genuine) cartridge and these are only the low yield cartridges filled to high yield levels anyway which is why it will work.

Good luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

Canon Pixma MP210 will not recognize high yield PG-50 & CL-51 cartridges.

The canon pixma mp 210 uses PG-30, CL-31, PG-40, CL-41
It will not recognized the PG-50 & CL- 51
See if you can return it and exchange it for the PG-40 & CL-41.
If not, the only other way is to transfer the ink into the other ink cartridges.
The cartridge cap can be removed by a sharp tap at the back end of the cover.
You can glue back the cover.
If there is an E 1,6 Error code, Ink has run out after you install your ink cartridges
Press and hold the stop/reset button for about 10 seconds to clear the error code.

My MX310 fails to recognize my PG-50 and CL-51

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

IP 1600 Printer Cartridge Compatability?????

Go to Control Panel,select Printers
Right click on Canon1600
click on maintenance
click on 'view printer status'
tick 'enable status monitor'

Later, you can get rid of any 'ink out' messages by pressing the lower light button on the printer, which will be flashing, then closing the message window.

Good luck.
