Wrong cartridge and alarm goes off

I put a new ink cartridge in my PIXMA MP780 printer and the alarm goes off and says on the small screen on the printer, that it is the "wrong cartdridge". I repeated the cartridge exchange and put the empty cartridge in and the same thing happens, "wrong cartridge".
HELP!

Also, while printing on the Canon printers you would usually get a window on the screen showing you the level of ink in the printer.

And here is a link on how to replace the ink cartridges on your printer http://support-au.canon.com.au/contents/AU/EN/8000117601.html

You get that message when the printhead goes bad. It's not the ink cartridges. You need a new printhead

"WRONG CARTRIDGE" continues to flash on the screen.


I have experienced the "Wrong Cartridge" error about 4 times in four years. I have never bought a replacement print head. I do occasional printing each week. Typically the problem occurs after a color cartridge goes empty and the ink dried to the print head. The solution for me has been to remove the cartridges, remove the print head, place the print head in hot water in the kitchen sink (softens water based ink that has hardened)and then use a Q-Tip or tissue paper to clean the print head until it is nice and shiny. Reinstall the print head, insert ink cartridges that are not empty, let the printer cycle through a self-test, use the set button to accept vertical and horizontal print patterns and you'll be good to go!
If that doesn't fix it, you'll need to replace the printhead ($49-69 depending on where you buy it.

Can't load ink cartridges for PIXMA MP780 printer


Are you using OEM cartridges or refills?
If you still have the old cartridges, put them in and see if the PC gives you status for the empty cartridges. If the system correctly statuses the old cartridges, check that the new cartridges the correct ones for your printer.
