Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
Pretend you need to replace the ink again. Open the MP600 so the carriage moves to the center (just like your going to replace the ink). Than power off the printer. Remove the cartridges & look very closely at the copper contacts. (Sometime when you remove the protective tape some of the sticky tape leaves a residue. If you can not see anything than get some house hold alcohol & a couple cotton swabs. Dampen the cotton & wipe the copper contacts on the ink cartridge (Not the bottom) & the copper contacts inside the carriage. Let everything dry. Alcohol does not leave a residue. Return the ink cartridges (good tight fit). Close the lid & power on the printer. Print a test page.
Left click once on the start button, slide up to & click on Printers and Faxes. The Printer and Faxes window will open. Right click once on your MP600 & left click on properties. Click Print a test page. If the colors did not come out correctly than run an alignment through your printer software & try again.
Everything I mention above is based on the idea that your printer was running just fine but you ran out of ink.
Please correct me if this is not the case.
If I can be of more service, just ask.
