I put the original almost empty cartridge in again and printed one page. Then I took it out and put in the new one, after wiping the contacts with a piece of plain paper. it worked!

I bought a new 952 black ink cartridge and it still says ink too low Is there something to remove before you install the cartridge?


Donna, typically there is a protector that covers the ink dispenser's copper contacts.It may be in the form of a protective sticker or a piece of plastic over the cartridge's dispenser. Hopefully you removed the protective cover before installing the ink cartridge

Some printers, like HP are proprietary and require their genuine brand cartridge for replacement...generic brand cartridges or refill cartridges are normally rejected.

Other printers, like Brother, have a sensor, while others may have a software program that "predicts" when your printer is out of ink; triggering a fault code- when in fact there is still plenty of ink left in the cartridge.

And yet, there are cartridges, like HP, that have a date chip in them such that when the expiration date of the ink cartridge comes about, even though there is ink in the cartridge, the printer will no longer function... a word to the wise, when purchasing an ink cartridge, check the expiration date stamp on the box.

Since you did not mention the printer name and model or the name of the ink cartridge, my remarks are generalizations- and not printer specific

Reset ink


This model printer may only let you use genuine printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.
This means you need to purchase and install genuine printer cartridges.

Canon MP470: "Print Head is not installed. Install Print Head"


Some printer brands have a cute scheme that reads a "new" cartridge as good, but the refilled one has a small fuse link that is burned out by the printer. Try factory new cartridges. Unplug the printer power for a bit to reset the printer.

Do I have to install a color cartirdge (CL-41)?


Some will allow printing with just black & others will not. You may need to put a color cartridge in to print. Check your owners manual or canon website to make sure but if you do need a color cartridge you can buy a generic brand that works with your printer to save some $$. Hope this helps.

Canon Pixma IP600D - error code 6502


Hello,

What is the brand name and model of your printer? Make sure that your ink cartridges are precisely the correct cartridges for the brand and model that you are using. From what I have experienced ... if you try to use a used ink cartridge you will recieve an error.
