When changing ink cartridge #5 printer does not recognize. Now all wont light up. We tried taking all cartridges out, turning off printer, restarting , even unplugging it. We bought another cartridge thinking it was faulty cartridge. What else can we do???
The solution in my case, which I learned from calling Canon, is that I was trying to use PHOTO ink tanks, which are different from the MP830 ink tanks. The box designs are identical. The ones I tried that wouldn't work were CLI-8PC ink tanks. The right one is CLI-8C. They are exactly the same size and the wrong ones fit into the slot, but apparently the chips are different.

it sounds like the printer has not accepted the changed cartridge.
Try turning the printer off at the mains for 30 seconds then back on again, it sometimes works, or if that fails take out the cartridge's turn off printer for 30 mins then back on re insert inks and see if that works.
If it fails then there could well be a chip set failure on the cartridge you have replaced or maybe another cartridge within the set.
It's well worth saving the cartridge too as compatibles sometimes fail to be read by your printer but rarely the actual cartridges fail, you can put that same cartridge back in later for it to be accepted by the printer.
May be the cartridge is not detected by Kodak printer. Kodak printer works with genuine Kodak cartridges and that too brand new not refilled cartridges.The brand new cartridges have a certain code that is recognised by the Printer.Kindly buy genuine cartridges as the printer may be damaged by Non comaptible cartridges.
Our pixma MP150 printer has a flashing E and flashing 5, also flashing on alarm, black ink and color ink. We have replaced the ink cartridges but nothing happens. They were empty. The printer doesnt recognize that the cartridges are there. We have tried unplugging the cords and taking the cartridges out and putting them in again. Also, it wont scan a thing either. ITs likes its frozen in the error. What can we do to fix this?
