SOURCE: printer cover open error message

I had that problem too.

Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then wait for the printer to power on while still holding the cover open.
Then close the cover.
The buttons should work and th error message should be gone.

It worked for me.

SOURCE: Ink Tank not recognized

If a brand new ink tank is not recognized, it has a faulty chip. I took the chip off the faulty tank and replaced it with another one. That worked for me.

SOURCE: CanonPIXMA iP90 Color Ink Tank installation problem

yeah it sounds like a cartridge sensors are stuck or broken. i would say to replace the whole print unit. It will need a service support dealer to fit this part unless you can buy it and fir it yourself.

part number: QM2-2020-020

hope this helps

Is the "Canon check ink 1688 col" error message a ransom ware virus by Canon simply to sell their ink cartridges?


Did you buy a refilled cartridge or refill it yourself by chance?
Many of the newer printers have chips in the cartridges that keep a count of how many times it's used. Some of the companies that refill cartridges don't do a good job and don't reset or replace that chip. If it wasn't genuine brand name, it was refilled even if they called it "new".
Depending upon what printer model you have, there may be a reprogram cheat or replacement chips for the cartridges.

you may try to replace your ink cartridge for a quick solution, if it still fails to print correctly, your print head nozzles may have dried up and clogged.

Check on Google for a work a round your dilemma. ****** printer companies just love hosing you with their ink products since that is where they make their money with printers. Design their printers to not accept "other" cartridges or just self destruct in relatively short time.

I just installed new cartridges (3rd set) and printer still says ink is low. How can that be? Is there something I can do to reset the printer color and black buttons. They show yellow instead of green....


Hi
If you replaced the cartridges with genuine Canon cartridges then there's probably a build up of ink under the cartridge carriage. Pull out all the cartridges and lift up the carriage. Clean it using a non alcohol cleaner. While you're at it put some cleaner on a folded up paper towel and wipe the ink reservoir located on the right hand side, where the carriage sits when idle. If you replaced your Canon cartridges with off brand cartridges then you might not have changed the chips over. On the old cartridges there's a tiny chip glued to the plastic in front. This chip must be popped off and snapped onto the new cartridge. Good luck

This error generally means that your cartridge chips cannot be recognized. The primary causes are: Covering of the LED at the back of the chip (by ink?). Incorrect chip positioning on the cartridge.The LED on one or more of the cartridges has been damaged if removed from original cartridge.The Chips have been mixed up, if removed and replaced, the wrong Chip has gone on the wrong color. And lastly Ink is covering the cartridge chip or a sensitive area of the cartridge and preventing the LED light sensor from functioning. ( my problem)

Most Cannon Printers will warn you of this specially if your using re manufactured ink and it shows up in the print queue.Just ignore this message and print normally! Bypassing this warning will not damage printer!!

After 2 years trouble free service, error 'U052 The type of print head is incorrect' has appeard?


The dreaded U052 error means that the 'chip' fitted to the Cartridge is not responding .. Canon (like all printer mfgs) makes all it's profit from selling Ink .. so they fit these chips to try to prevent you refilling or using a 'compatible' replacement cartridge

You have to move the chip from the Canon cartridge to the 'compatible' and (it seems) the chips are particularly sensitive to static / damage .. many people end up blowing the chips during the swap over .. or even when fitting the original genuine cartridges to a brand new unit for the first time ...

If the unit is brand new, take it back and demand a replacement ... if you have just swapped over the chip onto a compatible cartridge, you can try buying a genuine Canon cartridge (which will have a new chip) = hopefully that will do the trick

NB. I have seen some suggestions that canon's have a 'Service Mode' that allows you to disable the cartridge chip checking and allow you to print no matter what .. however I've never found any details ... perhaps some-one else has the details ??
