Canon iP4300 I normally refill my ink cartridges without any problems using ink from a Jettec kit. Suddenly the printer has said that I should replace one or more cartridges although they are all full. The yellow light keeps flashing 16 times.

The ink tanks have been replaced(refilled canon tanks), but the printer is still showing default setting ,with the orange warning light flashing 15 times sayingb there is no ink

there is a recognition chip on the ink cartridges, which is used as a counter for ink usage. if you re-fill the cartridges, the chip is NOT automatically reset. normally you can buy a small rest-tool in the same shop where you bought the re-fill kit.

I have recently refilled my HP Black cartridge with a new ink refill (Jettec Inkjet Refill R26)and I get rusty brown printing. Is this old ink? Or what is causing this please?

Sometimes it's necessary to run several head cleanings. Give this atr then print a test page through your printer software options page.

New Ink cartridge doesnt work on IP4300.

You have actually bought a dead cartridge as the ink there has dried up.
Either u kept it for long without use or the shopkeeper.
Now what u can do is take a syringe and fill it with luke, warm water and leave it in that stage for half an hour .
Then syringe out the water and allow it to dry in sun for 10 min.
Now fill the ink and u will be going

Without the make and model I can give you the following information: A print cartridge consists of the ink bellows or chambers, ink jets, which meter out ink in known dispensing rates, and a little chip that keeps track of the ink that is dispensed. Commercial refilling houses have the hardware and software to reset the little chips back to "full". And when you purchase that cartridge, it meters out ink from full to empty. There may be a utility in your printer control on your desktop to allow you to override and reset to full yourself. This is dependent upon what brand and model, and the software provided by the printer manufacturer.

Refilled ink cartridges not recognizby printer.

I fixed the problem by using original Canon ink cartridges and not getting them refilled. Apparently their chemists put a chemical in all of their inks so that only their Canon printers will recognize. It's a guarded trade secret that no one else knows about, unless it was analized. Other ink manufacturers produce ink that looks exactly as Canon ink, but that's where the similiarities end.

IP4300 print error message

Try holding the "resume" button (triangle in circle) for about 10 seconds for each cartridge.
If that doesn't work, go to a refill shop and ask if they have a re-setter for your cartridges. Most shops do.
The re-setter gives new serial numbers to the cartridges, so the printer thinks you have put in new ones. Or you can buy one.
In 99%, when the printer tells you that one of the cartridges is empty, it's actually not. The chip is the one that tells the printer when to stop printing. If you bypass the chip, you can continue printing.
Hope that helps!
