Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I take the cyan out, when I put it back in close the lid, the same message comes on. I have unpluged the printer with the same message after waiting a few minutes. would you suggest to take all of the tanks out and putting them back in? Any suggestion will help.
Other forums report this problem as a faulty ink cartridge that cannot be recognized or gets recognized as the wrong color. Calling canon tech support will usually result in a free replacement from Canon. If not, try purchasing a new cart before ditching the printer.

I've had this same problem for the past year (have had the printer a Cannon ip6700D for two years) Almost every time I turn on the printer it tells me there are more than two cartridges of magenta installed, it's always the same color. Anyway what works for me is opening the cover, allowing the cartridges to go through their cycle then closing the cover. Most of the time it works and I'm able to print with no problem. Sometimes I have to repeat opening the cover two or three times before I'm able to print. Yes it's annoying but so far it is the best solution I have found. I love this printer and hope that somewhere out there is a better and long term solution for this problem. Good luck to all of us!

Are you using genuine ink cartridges? If not, then perhaps there is no microchip on your ink cartridge. You can take the old chip off your used cartridge and put it on this cartridge and see if this solves your problem.

I e-mailed Cannon Customer Support and they are sending me a replacement cart by Fedex. Since this seems to be a persistent problem I don't think this is necessarily a fix. The printer is disabled until I get the new cart and with carts costing each about $14 it doesn't pay to have too many extra's around.
