Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer

1 Answer

My Cannon Printer

It's a PIXMAiP6700D and is brand new. I have a new desk top I mac. Everything was working perfectly. Now every time I go to print something the screen on the printer says (More than one ink tank of the following color is installed  PM. But there are actually 2 different magentas installed. It won't print. Then the next day when I am using E Mail or another application suddenly those old print commands start being printed.  Help. I'm new with computers and don't understand what's happening

    Thanks for your effort. The message on My printer is still the       same. (more than one Photo magenta is installed.) I don't have 2 printers installed as suggested. I think I have tracked it down to being either a faulty ink cartridge or a faulty printer. Here's hoping it's just a cartridge. thanks.

Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

Only test pages print perfectly!!


If when you print a test page it comes out perfectly, that means that the printer works, and the problem is communication between the printer and Mac.

Try the following:

Start testing a different USB cable and a different port.
Unplug Mac, and eventually remove the battery.
Unplug the printer power cable and USB.
Put the mac back toghether and restart it with printer usb not connected.
When mac is on, reinstall printer software driver, with Mac still not connected to printer, using printer disk or download.
Connect printer to Mac when asked by software.

If that still does not work, test the printer on a different computer, even if it is not common, the printer may have a faulty USB port.

I had this same exact problem. Try doing:
1. Unplug the power cord from printer.
2. Hold both o.k and Cancel simultaneously.
3. Plug the power cable while holding the buttons.


I had to go through multiple tries of the solution above. I turned it back on, it shut off and I turned it back on again. I tried to print something and sure enough, it did a maintenance cycle and it works again.

This did not work the first time but after 3-4 times of doing both, TA DAH, it went through a lengthy maintenance cycle and then started working. Persistence paid off

Colours have suddenly become washed out and lime green.


I read a lot of complicated stuff about cleaning the print head after my similar problem this week. Finally I found an old, soft toothlbrush, gave it a very light spray with windex and lightly brushed the magenta print head. I put the cannon cartridge back in and everything is printing perfect again. This worked for me, good luck to l you.

Dear Bill,
Flashing 5 times in orange indicates that print head error occurs so it cannot be detected properly by the printer. To make it sure, install a good print head in the printer. Is the problem fixed?. If the problem still persist, carriage part may be faulty. Overall, the print head is the most faulty part in this case. So, you need to replace the print head with new one.
Regards,

Cannot scan to mac from a cannon mf4150


There is not yet Mac driver support for the scanner portion of this printer.  The printer should work fine, but no scanner as of yet.  Too bad no one told me at the Office store when I bought it.
