Make sure genuine Canon cartridges are being used and inserted in the correct spots.
Canon's troubleshooting recommends this if there is a 'wrong cartridge' error message.

If the cartridge is genuine, then I would call 1-800-OK-CANON to investigate the problem further.

I have a HP Color Laserjet 2025. I recently replaced the color cartridges and when I tried to replace the black toner cartridge I got the message - "remove the shipping lock on the black toner...

My suggestion is to put the 2 cartridges next to each other and look at them as closely as you can. There has to be a difference between the one that works and the ones that give the error.
Something that just occurred to me. Check the slot where the black cartridge sits. Check it for something that could have fallen off the original cartridge and is wedged in the slot. Compare the slot with another cartridges slot.
Because one cartridge works and others don't, it tells me it's a physical(hardware) problem not electrical.

check to see if there is a sensor or switch where the cartridge goes into. If its a sensor you need to clean it with a Q-Tip. If it's a switch see if it's not broken

Printer problem. suddenly it doesn't like the "cartridge on the right." says "the cartridge on the right is not intended for this printer." There's nothing wrong with the cartridge;...

Try taking the cartridge out and without touching the gold connector pins on the back, clean them with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Do the same with the connector pins in the printer. Some times dirt, ink, etc. gets on the pins and does not make good contact. Thus, an error message and perhaps no printing.

What do I do when my printer says "WRONG

This could result from dirty electronic panel. But if the printer is printing in spite of the message, you may continue to use your ikn until the cartridge becomes empty. However you could manually clean the electronic panel of the cartridges and the area where they make contact inside the printer. Use folded tissue soaked in a bit of methylated spirit.

Good luck and Gos bless!
