Maybe one ink chip is faulty. Try to remove one and leave in the other (do the same for each one) to see if printer says something different. Otherwise your ink sensor could be broken.

Installed new ink on ip4200. Black will not print on test page "horizontal box", other colors print. Any suggestion on why the black won't print? Thanks.


The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.
  1. Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank

  2. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (A), it is properly removed.

  3. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (B), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (A).

  4. Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.

Printer is saying more then one ink tanks of the same colour is installed. Yellow. Then it is saying it isn't recognising the yellow ink


Do you have all Genuine Canon Ink Jet Cartridges?
If you don't then that could be the problem.
Otherwise, if you do, then I would try another yellow ink jet cartridge from Canon.

The middle light keeps flashing 7 times then stops then repeats. the other button to change the paper type. i dont think its a ink issue possibly a paper one.


This mean multiple ink tanks of the same color installed or Ink tank in a wrong position.Check your ink tanks.This ink tanks has a memory chip.Sometimes this chip fails.
If the green light blinks with a orange 7 times this mean the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

Replaced two ink tanks in my pixma but the lights will not flash


You cant realy do anything, i had the same problem whit my IP5000.
I tryed everything but nothing helped, after speaking whit canon here in sweden they told me to let it be, after next tank instalation it will disappear and you printer will be as usal again. Canon told that the problem is on the chip on the tank. When the printer tell you that the tank is empty or not right just press the blinking yellow button on the printer and hold it for at least 5 seconds.


Good luck

Canon Pixma ip4200 printer, error 1414


Hello there,

I've gotten in touch with Canon and have something a little different to try. At the very least the error should change. (Sorry, gallows humor). Please read this entire response before taking action.

After the upcoming test procedure, I have included a link and procedure to contact Canon tech support. The assure me they will replace any faulty tanks.

The purpose of this exercise is either rule out ink tanks that are behaving or isolate the one(s) responsible for the 1414. You should write down the results of this test. Please perform the following:

1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.

2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.

3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as they are not currently installed in the printer.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.

5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of the issue is the last ink tank.


Click here for the Canon PIXMA iP4200 support page
Then click on e-mail support.
Fill out the form.
Under description, supply the following info:

Error 1414 Ink tank problem on my Canon PIXMA iP4200
The error won't go away.
I have replaced the <color in question> tank, reseated it, yet the error remains.

You will also need to list what inks are being used in the printer. State the type of ink that is being used and the order that the tanks are installed in the print head.
Provide the exact part number (such as BCI-6C, BCI3eBk, etc.) if possible.

The Canon support rep assured me they will be glad to replace the malfunctioning tank(s) for you at no cost. Please
respond with the results, and specify the ink tank(s) that were not recognized correctly.

They responded quickly, professionally and apologetically. They want to help get this resolved for you.

I hope this helps end the frustration you must be feeling. If you need additional help or clarification, click the ASK button.

Mike

If you could take a moment and rate this response, I would appreciate it.

More than one of the same ink tanks installed


I wrote to Canon about this problem. They sent me the advice, first to try taking the cartridge out and replacing it. If that didn't work (I'd already tried it), I should remove the power source from the printer for one minute, then try again. That didn't work either. Their third option was to replace the cartridge with a new one. I'd resisted this option, in case it didn't work, as Canon cartridges are not cheap. It was the last resort before taking the printer for service. I tried it and it worked!
Good luck!

UNRECOGNIZABLE INK TANKS


Does this model have 'chips' on the tanks? Check for a reset option in the manual or trial and error by switching the machine off then on again whilst holdimg down one or more of the buttons For further help take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com
