Have you removed the cartridges and reinstalled them? is the message saying both black and color are not recognized? I have seen many posts at many sites about this problem with the iP600, so this seems to be a defect in the models design, the message means the printer can't read the ink level in one or both cartridges, this can be a cartridge problem or a sensor circuit issue, no one thing has been found that fixed it every time. I would suggest you go tot he Canon support site and download the latest drivers for the printer, this would eliminate a software defect causing this, here is a link to the Driver at Canon.

My Canon MP460 Printer will not recognise new ink cartridges? Do you know why? They are the correct ones!


When you say does not recognise the cartridges. What does the display and pc say? Also observe the orange and green lights and tell us what sequence they flash.
Thanks

Will not recognise all cartridges


some problems with compatible cartridges can be solved by taking all the ink out and powering the printer off then back on then put the ink back in, you might have to do this a few times also make sure no ink or dust has built up on the pins.
