Recognizing recycled ink cartridges

It is likely that the cartridge was not reset correctly when it was refilled. Return it to wherever you got it from for a replacement one.

How come my Canon ImageClass MF4122 printer gives fuzzy images?

That is best bet since it appears that your print head is fubar and Canon charges a fortune for them. Cheaper to get a new printer with warranty.

How to load a MP130 cartridge?

  • 1 Turn on the printer and check the LCD screen for an indication of which ink cartridges are low. Note that recycled ink cartridges sometimes read "Ink low" even when they still have ink, so print a test page if you're not sure.
  • 2 Expose the ink tray by lifting the entire LCD control panel, which is attached to the underside of the copier tray.
  • 3 Pull out the used ink cartridge by pulling straight up from the print head,

  • 4, insert the new cartridge into the print head and push down until you feel a click. Close the printer lid and let the printer reset the ink tray.
  • 5 Print a test page to make sure the new ink works. If it doesn't, you may have forgotten to remove the protective tab under the cartridge.

    Changing print color cartridge

    The cartridge you have change are did not much or not compatible with your printer. You just buy a cartridge with the same brand of your previous cartridge that used and to make sure that your printer are recognize it. Because some compatible ink are cannot be recognized by other printer.

    My canon iP90 portable printer stopped recognizing the installation of the color ink tank. It keeps asking to install the color ink cartridge and won't print until the color ink cartridge is recognized

    According to Canon, the if several actions did not correct the issue, it was a hardware problem. They sent me the location of the closest repair shop. I spoke to them and to do the repair is $80 + parts which my research estimated at between $50-$80, for a total cost of $130-$160 plus 10% cook county Illinois sales tax. I have ordered a new updated printer for a total of $215 plus no tax or shipping charge. I'll be taking the old printer to a location for recycling. I can't believe how disposable this equipment has become. What a waste of raw materials and energy.

    My cannon printer pixma ip1800 cannot detect ink pls help me...

    If after you install the cartridge you get a yellow light and error message:
    “The following may have run out of color. The function for
    detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the
    ink level cannot be correctly detected. If you want to
    continue printing with out this function, press the printer’s
    start button. Canon recommends using new genuine Canon
    cartridges in order to obtain optimum quality.”

    Do not click “cancel printing”. Press printer start button
    to start printing. This action will bypass the ink level
    detection from the recycled cartridge. It will not damage the
    printer! With a recycled cartridge this action needs to be
    done one time.
    A full recycled cartridge ink level may not display correctly.
    It may show empty.
    If you want to check the ink level, you can do a “Nozzle
    check” by follow the directions below:
    Go to menu File select print click on “Property” click
    on “Maintenance”
    Click on “Nozzle check” to print out the color check.
    Click on “Cartridge Alignment” to align the cartridge.

    See pictures for above process at Inktelligent ip 1800 topic

    Also the refills refered to above are at the IP 1800 inkfilling page
