Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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???
I know this does not help solve the problem,
but it lets people know that this is a common problem.

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.
