Question about Canon PIXMA iP5200R InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I have just bought some new ink cartridges with chip, after I for a while have been using cartridges without chip. When I insert the new cartridges I don't get any red light, and the wellow led on front off the printer flashes 4 times.

I don't understand when you say, "chip" with this printer's cartridges, there should be gold contacts instead of chip, and there's another unit called Printhead.
Try the following tips: 1. Start with printer Off 2. Hold down "Resume" and then hold down "Power" 3. Release "Resume" 4. press "Resume" twice, then release "Power" 5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving. 6. Select functions below with "Resume", execute with "Power"
I'll post another tip, since here's word limit, I can't post the whole at one go.

    Off for few minutes [10 minutes will do], tap the power button several

    Well, simply, press the Resume button 4 times.
    Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
    Your printer should respond as normal..


    Good luck.

I have replaced black ink cartridge 73N message on screen says Error i press ok to proceed message goes back saying replace ink cartridge?


The main problem in using the latest Epson printers, is the ink replacements. Ink cartridges like 73N has its own ink reseter (the little chip in front of the cartridge). Once you replaced the ink without using the right procedures, for example you have a 10% remaining ink level on one of the cartridge, and you replaced it without using the setup menu and selecting the replace ink cartridge, even though the cartridge is new, the printer will read the replaced cartridge as a 10% ink level cartridge. When the remaining 10%, drops to 0%, your cartridge will read as an empty cartridge. The chip on the cartridge is registered as an empty cartridge.
-try to replace the ink reseter or try to clean the cartridge chip then put back the ink.

When refilling canon ip4500 cartridge they still show empty


I'm sorry you got that STUPID answer first. The Canon cartridges you use have a chip or small circuit board on the bottom front. You have to either reset that chip or get the reset chips from the place you get your ink. That little chip tells your printer how much ink has been used and once they are empty refilling doesn't help without a new or reset chip.

Installed #8 M(magenta ink cartridge) New ink tank.


The problem can be one of the following:

  1. You have a faulty cartridge chip (return to purchaser and request a replacement)

  2. The chip is soiled (ink or similar is causing the connection to fail) so try cleaning the chip

  3. The chip is not properly mounted on the cartridge (maybe skewed slightly or similar). If so try straightening out carefully and then re-inserting.

Canon have been known to send out cartridges with bad chips so you should contact them if you bought a proper one and they'll sort you out.

Continuous ink supply system for epson r285. Printer will not recognise the cartridges as full. have used the reset button on the cartridge but still no luck. any ideas?


Resetting the Epson Ink Monitoring System -
Even though the CFS maintains a constant level of ink in the cartridges, the Epson monitoring system will signal that the cartridges are empty after a cartridge full of ink has been used. This ink level information is stored on the Intelligent cartridge chip. These cartridge chips have to be reset with out lifting the cartridges. This is done with Inksupply.com Auto Reset Chips. On older Epson printers, before the Intelligent cartridge, it is done mechanically by removing and re-inserting the Inksupply.com switch activators. CFS cartridges must be reset without lifting them.
Previous Reset Methods -
The resetting methods have evolved over the past couple of years. First the Swedish Reset method was used, then the Equalizer Program, then the F-16 Chip Resetter, and now the Auto Reset Chips.

Hope this helps you. Good luck!

Changing Ink Cartridges


I'm assuming you are using originals. I would suggest you taking the cartridges out and re-inserting them. If you are using refilled cartridges and you used the cartridges to almost empty then probably the chip may have short circuited rendering the chip useless. If you bought remanufctured cartridges I suggest you ask them for replacements. This isn't really that high tech but I hope this helps.

Canon MP530 U052 Error


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 ??

Bought compatible ink


It's likely the chip. They can evidently get confused like the rest of us! Previous fixes were to replace the driver. No luck with me so I did what I was told by an idependant printer engineer and simply replace the offending colour cartridge. Hey Presto. Fortunately I was using Canons inks and they are going to replace it.
