You have to make sure the printer is plugged in the power. After you not only have to open the photo copy top, but you have to lift up the copying part aswell, then they will be centered. The ink exchange is easy.

Canon mx330 how to change ink cartridges


Use the thumb drill to literally drill a hole into the side of the old cartridge. Make sure to chose a location that's closer to the top of the ink cartridge to avoid over spillage when you add the new ink. Once you have the hole just squeeze in some ink of corresponding color into the hole. Not a huge amount, but enough to get some use out of it before the next refill. I highly recommend covering the hole afterward with a sticker or something so that you don't dry out the cartride. Reinsert the cartridge into the printer and use. (: All set!

*Note: You may have to reset the count on the cartridge to avoid getting messages that the ink need to be changed. From here on in, use your eyes to determine if the cartridge needs a refill (:

How do I change the ink cartridge in my canon mp495 printer


Make sure that the printer is plugged in and turned on. Close the document cover (if it is open). Lift the scanner unit and hold it open with the support on the right. Wait until the ink cartridge carrier moves to the ink replacement area. Pinch the tabs on one of the ink cartridge covers (front and back) and lift the cover up. Then pull the cartridge up at an angle towards you. Put the new cartridge in at the same angle. Then close the cartidge cover (it should click). Repeat this for the other cartridge, if needed. Lift up the scanner unit and then lower it down to close the printer.
Wait for the printer to do the print head cleaning before sending more jobs to the printer. (It will resume jobs in progress automatically.)

If it takes more than 10 minutes to replace the cartridges, the cartridge carrier will return to the home position. Close the scanner unit and then lift it back up.

I hope this helps.

Renewing ink cartidge


Turn the printer on. Lift up the cover on your printer. You will here the cartridges moving, then they will stop, in your case, i guess in the center, but if not, just look and you will surely see them (they may be either in the center or on the left or right end of the printer). Then just put your hand on the cartridge and gently pull down. You will not break anything, promise :)

Changing the print head on the Canon Pixma iP90. Same for the iP80


It's not the same printhead but you change it the same way. open the cover and wait til the inks come to the center, hold the resume button for a few seconds and it moves to the right a bit so you can reach the handle to lift up and change the printhead.

Hi there
You can try this it some times works.

Super Canon User's method of resetting IP1600
1.Press Resume button hold for 1 - 2 minutes (count to 1 to 15-16)
2.Open the cover right away
3.Release Both cartridges out and then put cartridges them back again
4.Close The Cover
5.Turn Off Then Turn On again.

You can download the Resetter tools program from my website.

1. Download software for Canon iP1200, iP1600, 2200 Printers.

If both the main and platen waste ink absorbers are replaced, reset both the main and platen waste ink counters.
