Changing ink cartridge

My printer comes up cannot detect red ink cancel printing. I held resume so that I could carry on printing but this did not work. I refilled my cartridge and wonder if this is part of fault. But I cannot print now and this message keeps coming up. I've turned it off, I've pulled out the cables and put them in again. I still cannot escape this message.

Hi,

Using refilled cartridges is not at all recommended as it may damage the firware of the printer. I request you to replace the refilled cartridges with genuine ones and I am sure that should resolve the issue.

Regards,
Lawrence

I have changed all ink cartridges on my canon pixma ip4200 printer and it now doesn't work, the green and amber lights flash for 11 times and the cartridge carrier doesn't move. Please can someone advice...


From Canon Help Files.

Automatic Print Head alignment failed
Possible causes are as follows:
6128_image_6.gif A4 or Letter-sized paper is not loaded on the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, then load one sheet of A4 or Letter-sized paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Automatic print head alignment cannot be performed using paper from the Cassette. For automatic print head alignment, always load paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.

6128_image_6.gif Print Head nozzles are clogged.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, and then print out the nozzle check pattern to examine the print head condition.

For information on how to print a nozzle check pattern, see "Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern."

6128_image_6.gif The Paper Output Slot has been exposed to a strong light source preventing correct Print Head alignment.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error and move the printer to a darker location.
After carrying out the above measures, if the problem continues after aligning the Print Head again, press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error, and then perform manual print head alignment. For details on manual print head alignment, see "Manual Print Head Alignment."

Two flashes: Out of paper, paper jam or paper feed error
Replace the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam and press the RESUME/CANCEL
button.

Three flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, replace the paper in the printer
correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Four flashes: Empty ink tank
One of the ink tanks is empty. Replace it.

Six flashes: No print head installed
Install a print head.

Seven flashes: Defective print head
Remove and reinstall the print head.
Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed. If reinstalling the print head
does not resolve the problem, replace it with a new one.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight
flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL
button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank
becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative to have the waste ink
tank replaced. Canon recommends to call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once
the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will be no longer
possible.
