The chances are that the chip on the cartridge is defective. Have you tried another cartridge? If you can, take the defective cartridge back to the vendor and get a replacement or refund. If it worked once, it is likely the cartridge and not the printer.

My ink was newly refilled. but when i used it to print, a dialog box appeared saying that the ink cartridge was not installed properly. how can i fixed? do i need to buy a new ink?

make sure that the contacts are clean. If you used a refill kit and not purchased a brand new cartridge, then that could be a problem, and you may need to get a new one.

You can try this it works for my 1500 printer.
Go to the printer settings and turn off the ink low messages.
Switch your printer on and hold the paper feed switch down for the count of five the orange light should flash. Then switch off the power and switch back on again the green light should stay steady. If you do not come right on this one you can email me at

An Ink cartridge is not installed properly and the ink cartridge cannot be recognized

buy 1liter of gasoline and pour it on your IP1300 and then fire it up... I have the same problem and I already solved it! Canon is wasted!!! Just buy other brand.

Ink cartridges cannot be recognized in canon printer

Remove the cartridges and gently wipe the cartridge contacts with a dry cloth, then put them back in. Then, hold the "resume" button for 10 seconds for each cartridge, that should reset them.
If that doesn't work, one of your cartridges (sadly) needs to be replaced.
