A couple things I would check that can cause this, all related to PC to Printer communication.

  1. Cable problem: Printing locally with a non-bidirectional printer cable from LPT1.
  2. Configuration Issue: Printing via IP and having designated in the device setup more trays then actually exist. For example, checking that you have a feeder when you have only the default tray.
  3. Resource Conflict: Printing via IP when another device is using the same IP.
  4. User Error: Having multiple copies of the same printer. i.e. 8500DN, and 8500DN(1) setting one up but having the other set as default.

Why won't my canon printer MP460 read my ink cartridges? It keeps saying "Cannot read ink cartridges" on the black ink.


Hi, are you using Canon or refilled cartridges? If you are using Canon, there's a problem with the cartridge. If you are using refilled cartridges it's because the cartridge has been used. When you first put a Canon cartridge in, the printer reads the cartridge and knows it's a new one, I'm not sure of the mechanics of it, I don't know if it blows a chip or fuse in the cartridge but it can read a new one. If it's been used, it can't read it so you get the message that it can't read it.
Turn off the staus monitor and the message will go and you can carry on printing, it won't tell you when the cartridges are empty, you'll just notice the print quality going downhill.

Error when scanning


Hi Liz
Looking at that message I get the impression that the printer is not actually scanning but trying to 'import' from a non-existent camera card.
You don't normally get an import message when scanning.
The destination full or read only part is a puzzle but could indicate that it is also trying to copy back to that non-existent card.
I think your best option is to use Canon's web site and look at the support section. They may well have an on-line chat service in your area that can help you sort it out.

My dell 924 printer shows right cartridge incorrect and I just had both cartridges refilled what is wrong?


I purchased remanufactured ink cartridges through amazon.com. I got 4 for the price of 1 through Dell. After installing the first cartridge, it printed for a few days and then I got the same message "left cartridge incorrect". Unfortunately, I did not read the piece of paper that came with my cartridge that says "STOP" read this before you install the cartridge.
I had to throw out the cartridge that I had just installed and put in a new one and follow these steps:
1. If you recieve a pop-up message indicating that the cartridge has been depleted or a low ink level warning, please disregard.
2. Check "Don't display this dialog again" and click "ok" or "continue printing" if necessary.
3. In the printer status window, since you have already ordered ink, do not click the "order ink online" button. If you have the option, check "I have ordered my ink, please don't remind me again." If not, close the window and continue printing.

I'm not sure why, but these instructions were vital to getting my remanufactured cartridges to work.

I am posting this reply to hopefully help out the next person that has this problem. Unfortunately, I lost a perfectly good ink cartridge because I failed to read the instructions the first time. But the next one worked just fine when I followed the instructions. Good luck!

Go into control panel, and right click on your printer and select properties. Under maintenance you will find the reset to show the inks as new. Also if you open the top cover while connected to your computer and then try to print a window will pop up asking if you put in new ink, answer yes and tell it which ink is new and it will be reset.
