I bought a Cannon PIXMA iP1600 printer and the salesman sold me One (1) replacement CANNON 40-PG BLACK (B) Fine Cartridge, and One (1) replacement CANNON 41 CL- 41 Color (C) Fine Cartridge. These do not seem to fit in this printer, I am not mechanically challenged but any help would be appreciated. Was I sold the wrong ink cartridges?

not-so-tech friendly, installing ink cartridges in printers can be
messy and time-consuming. Although companies such as Canon are
constantly trying to make designs more convenient for all users, there
are still several tips that can help new printer owners install Canon
PG-40 printer cartridges without mess or hassle.
Although many printer cartridges are specific to only a few models, the
Canon PG-40 printer cartridge was designed for use with many models of
the Canon Pixma and even some of the Canon fax machines. As of
September 2010, the Canon PG-40 ink cartridge can be used with the
Pixma iP1600 through iP1800 printers, the iP2600 printer, the MP140
through MP190 printers, the MP210 printer, the MP460 and 470 printers,
the MX300 and MX310 printers and the JX200 and JX210P fax machines.
This versatility allows users to stick with the same type of ink
cartridge over the life of several printers and allows small business offices an opportunity to buy one type of cartridge for all office printing requirements.
Replacing printer cartridges can be expensive and, if it is possible,
as it is with the Canon PG-40, refilling is a cheaper and more
environmentally friendly option. Refill the PG-40 by gathering a 10
cubic centimeter syringe with a 1.5-inch needle, a pair of latex free
gloves, an MIS Yellow Drill Tool, Scotch tape and black ink. Remove the
label from the top of the cartridge and use the yellow drill tool to
open the vent hole that was covered by the label. Next, load the
syringe with 20 CCs of black ink and inject it into the ink hole (where
ink leaves the cartridge for the page.) Make sure the needle reaches
the bottom of the ink tank and then slowly inject the ink into the
cartridge, stopping when the ink begins to well up at the needle
insertion point. Now remove the needle and clean the top of the
cartridge off to avoid color contamination. Put a small strip of Scotch
tape over the vent hole and poke a small hole in the tape with a pin.
Now reinsert the cartridge and run up to three cleaning cycles to
calibrate the printer.
Resetting the Ink Level
While refilling ink in a PG-40 can save money, it can also cause
difficulties when using the automatic ink level sensor. Reset this
sensor by removing the cartridge after the printer has been calibrated
and placing a thin strip of Scotch tape on the line of gold-colored
leads nearest the ink hole on the bottom of the ink cartridge. Replace
the cartridge and wait for the computer
to display a warning about the ink cartridge being loaded incorrectly.
Remove the cartridge and move the tape from the first to the second
level of leads and replace the cartridge. When the PC displays a
message that the cartridge is not recognized, remove the cartridge and
replace without the tape. The ink level will be reset.
