one solution is turn off your printer, and reboot your system, after rebooting, turn on your printer again. If that doesn't work try re-installing the printer drivers be sure to turn off the printer and reboot the system afterwards to refresh the system.

Hope this was helpful:)

Was it a genuine brand cartridge, or no-name type? Some printers refuse to recognize anything but a genuine brand cartridge.

Alternatively you could try reseating it, but you likely already did that.

Cant get my ink cartridges to work

This model Epson printer may only let you use genuine Canon/Epson printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the Epson cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.

I wanted to print my documents here but my printer always says that the ink cartiledge is not properly installed and i already reinstalled my canon printer pixma ip1200

Make sure the ink cartridge is properly installed. Or this is probably common problem with Cannon ink cartridge, replacing the cartridge will solve the problem, but you need check it first under maintenance on Control Panel.

ESP-9 will not recognize new cartridge

2 things to discount first

1. Are you using a new Kodak cartridge, Kodak like other printer suppliers use a recognition chip in there cartridge in an attempt to get past the refillers, try a genuine replacement cartridge

2. Is it possible that more than one cartridge needs replacement, this will also throw up the same message

If the answer to both these are No contact the supplier of the cartridge and inform them of the trouble or contact Kodak directly

My iP1880 is asking cartridge while it is there

It could be a defective cartridge, or pins in the carriage assembly are bent or broken. You can check the pins by looking in the front of the carriage with a flashlight and mirror. after removing the ink cartridges.
