Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a Canon MP170 for a couple of years. Recently it has started refusing refilled cartridges by Cartridge World.
Even turning off the ink checker didn't solve the problem.
All I get is a message telling me the cartidges cannot be identified and offering to cancel printing.
Anyone got any ideas to solve this problem
Recently I changed the cartridges for another pair of newly refilled cartridges and turned off the ink checker and now it works fine. However the original refilled cartidges also worked fine for a while before blocking printing occured even with the ink checker turned off.
I am aware the ink sponge can be a problem.
Thanks for trying

try cleaning the terminals of your printer cartridge and your new ink and install it again...
if samething happens try installing again your printer.
if still nothing happens maybe you purchase a deffective ink cartridge...
if that happens you can return it to the shop were you bought it and demand for a replacement cause most of manufacterer have warranties for their products...
hope it helps...
