Canon printer ip 1000 no image.

Dear experts, i have used syringe type refill black ink for quite a long time

back neatly but still no image. the printer shows no error blinking and print normally without image. original head also dipped in solvent and cleaned but same fault. does the pc board faulty? pls help.

Henry can you try a new cartridge in the printer. Maybe borrow one from a friend?
Printer cartridges are very delicate and hold most of the technology to do the printing.
It sounds to me that you need to replace the cartridge.
They are not meant to be re-used lots of times. Although you can prolong there life (And save your cash) re-useing them
I am sure you are aware that the manufacturer recomends only thier cartridges and us once buy new. Maybe you have saved all the money you can on this one.
Let me know how you get on please.

My canon pixma iP 1800 does not recognise refilled colour cartridge. Can you suggest a fix?


  1. For the not-so-tech friendly, installing ink cartridges in printers can be messy and time-consuming. Although companies such as Canon are constantly trying to make designs more convenient for all users, there are still several tips that can help new printer owners install Canon PG-40 printer cartridges without mess or hassle.
  2. Compatibility
  3. Although many printer cartridges are specific to only a few models, the Canon PG-40 printer cartridge was designed for use with many models of the Canon Pixma and even some of the Canon fax machines. As of September 2010, the Canon PG-40 ink cartridge can be used with the Pixma iP1600 through iP1800 printers, the iP2600 printer, the MP140 through MP190 printers, the MP210 printer, the MP460 and 470 printers, the MX300 and MX310 printers and the JX200 and JX210P fax machines. This versatility allows users to stick with the same type of ink cartridge over the life of several printers and allows small business offices an opportunity to buy one type of cartridge for all office printing requirements.
  4. Refill
  5. Replacing printer cartridges can be expensive and, if it is possible, as it is with the Canon PG-40, refilling is a cheaper and more environmentally friendly option. Refill the PG-40 by gathering a 10 cubic centimeter syringe with a 1.5-inch needle, a pair of latex free gloves, an MIS Yellow Drill Tool, Scotch tape and black ink. Remove the label from the top of the cartridge and use the yellow drill tool to open the vent hole that was covered by the label. Next, load the syringe with 20 CCs of black ink and inject it into the ink hole (where ink leaves the cartridge for the page.) Make sure the needle reaches the bottom of the ink tank and then slowly inject the ink into the cartridge, stopping when the ink begins to well up at the needle insertion point. Now remove the needle and clean the top of the cartridge off to avoid color contamination. Put a small strip of Scotch tape over the vent hole and poke a small hole in the tape with a pin. Now reinsert the cartridge and run up to three cleaning cycles to calibrate the printer.
  6. Resetting the Ink Level
  7. While refilling ink in a PG-40 can save money, it can also cause difficulties when using the automatic ink level sensor. Reset this sensor by removing the cartridge after the printer has been calibrated and placing a thin strip of Scotch tape on the line of gold-colored leads nearest the ink hole on the bottom of the ink cartridge. Replace the cartridge and wait for the computer to display a warning about the ink cartridge being loaded incorrectly. Remove the cartridge and move the tape from the first to the second level of leads and replace the cartridge. When the PC displays a message that the cartridge is not recognized, remove the cartridge and replace without the tape. The ink level will be reset.

Does ink refile is possible in canon ip 2770 printer?


Yes, Canon ink cartridges can be refilled. Most Canon cartridges can be refilled up to 12 times. Canon cartridges consist of a sponge and an open ink reservoir, so they can be refilled using a syringe.

Just refill our black ink for canon pixma ip 1200 and it gives out lines in beetwen image. How can i fix? it says it needs to unclogged but i kept cleaning through maintenance tab and result is still the...


Canon recommends genuine canon ink jet cartridges. If you bought a remanufactured ink jet cartridge and it did this, I would return it immediately.

But, since you filled it yourself, there's no recourse with the ink company, I don't believe.

Even if you were successful with refilling, they can only be refilled 2 or 3 times at best.

Refilling a cartridge


You need to use a very thin needle (25 gauge medical needle works well) on a syringe. There is a tiny hole in the canon 40 cartridge under the label which you need to fill. To refill the color cartridge (canon 41) as you look at the cartridge, the hole at the top is magenta, the hole to the left is blue and the hole to the right is yellow, use a separate syringe and needle for each color. Every now and then you will need to use some cartridge cleaner to soften/clean the sponge in the cartridge. I use 0.5cc of cleaner then let sit overnight before adding ink. You need to be sure the label is replaced well or use good tape to keep the ink from escaping.

I want to refill the ink cartridges (black 30 - colour31) myself....how do I do it?


Hi there,
Filling is easy - but messy. I use No 40 cartridges for my pixma ip2200.
For the black cartridge, carefully remove the label. Drill a 2-3mm dia. hole in the depression in the top. With a syringe fill, using about 10ml of black ink. Plug the hole with a suitable bung and away you go!
You will however lose the ink level indication as it is not a genuine cartridge - but that is unreliable anyway.
Don't refill more than a couple of times as the foam inside the case eventually perishes and all the ink runs out.

Whilst the cartridge is out of the printer give the jets a wipe with a wet tissue. This is usually quite effective in removing dried on ink.

You can do the same with 41 colour cartridges but it is a bit more tricky locating the correct place to drill.

Good luck
