    I too am having the same problem. I just changed the Cyan color cartridge, and after that I can't print or copy in color anymore. I do a lot of photos so I am lost! The on-screen Troubleshooting doesn't offer a solution and I can't find one on-line. I have "cleaned" the nozzles and deep cleaned them and re-inserted the cartridges, etc., but nothing. HELP, I need a life in Color!

SOURCE: Canon mx700 rejecting remanufactured ink cartridges

big issue with remanufacturing is how integritous is the fit of the cartridge, and also the interface. When these are re cut, so to speak, tolerances can stack up, and one thing about Canon, is they are a stickler for tolerances. You may have an issue with the cartridge fitting in the carriage, but not interfacing with the system. Happens sometimes..

got backup?

SOURCE: Canon MX700 will not print

I've had this exact problem! You will need regular rubbing alcohol and some q-tips and some canned air (if you've got it handy since it's kinda expensive). Remove all of your print cartridges and then remove the print head. Turn the print head upside down and clean back and forth with a q-tip dipped in alcohol. Don't use the same q-tip too much, if one gets icky after a few passes, use a clean one. Then, while your cover is still up, run a clean q-tip dipped in alcohol over the gold prongs that the print head sits next to. Be careful, the prongs will "pull out" the q-tip so pass over them gently. Spray the connections with canned air, making sure there are no loose fibers around. I sprayed the whole inside. After I did exactly all of this, it worked-PERFECTLY. I have no idea which little step worked. Good luck!!
