Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer
I replaced my ink cartridges one by one (as they ran out), changing from the original canon cartridges to the substitute brand C&G. This worked until the very last canon one had to be changed - I found I needed to use an original for the BK8 for the printer to keep working. Then today, after a paper jam, I am getting the message "Some ink tanks cannot be recognized" and "Ink tank errors have occurred. Open the printer's cover and replace the ink tanks on which ink lamps are off." Holding down the Reset button for five seconds doesn't allow me to override these messages. Help please!
I have the same problem and many Canon users , i try a trick that mayby solve this and last but not least ... Mayby the only cheap solution for all print users !!
My problem .. was looking for a cardrige solution ( IP4300 ) because 4 (of 5) cardrige leds are dimmed off and need to be replaced . I just order 5 adopters and 5 new with chip for all the five cardrige . Problem : The chip uses memory and that makes it very hard to reset . But i have thinking .. mayby this is somthing ..
What you read is new, experimenting with this idea is all at your own risk !
Here is a simple markable solution Unique !!
A - First you need all 5 brandnew cardrige with chips ( please keep all ink preventions inplace )
B - You need is a 4 poles - 1.50 / 2.50 meter +/- telephone cable
C - (five) (new) OEM cardrige without chips
D - Tin and a somthing to solder
E - 5 old chips for adopting the connection outside the printer
F - A box for the 5 new chiped cardriges
1 ) Make of 1,5 / 2,5 meter a 5 pcs of 30 / 50 centimeter
2 ) Solder on each lengt a old chip (this is functioned as a adopter) but first remove all the (useless) electronic components and place them on the cardriges
3 ) Solder the other site of the cable to each new chiped cardrige cq / toner that still sits on the new orriginal cardriges ( our make a alternative contact if you dont want to solder )
4 ) Tape the 5 new cardriges together and *
5 ) Put it in the box and give it a save unremovable place **
6 ) Put the (5) oem cardriges with the empty old chips ) in the right ink location(s)
* ) Looking into the new cardriges : this needs a box because of the intervering with the led this not only makes it nicer but mostly because of the outside light influence .
** ) Dont turn the kid upside down our shake it . If you do , the led indicates that the cardriges are empthy our low and the countdown proces for the chip will start !
I wait for arrive of the new ones, anybody who try make a handshake !
See you soon
