Will not print - ink cartridges not recognised, not installed properly etc

Hi.

I have refilled my ink cartridges on my canon printer several times in the last few weeks. However i have just had my colour ink refilled and now it wont print. It says printer cartridges not recognised, or tells me to open lid and put cartridges in properly but they are in properly. I dont understand why it wont recognise it as i have done this several times before.

I need your help urgently!!

On my Cannon Pixma, I pressed the stop/reset for 5 seconds to ignore the warning. Then,
I was able to make a copy. However, better solutions to this scenario are welcome.

You need to reset the chip in the cartridge that tells the printer when it's low. The part can be found on sites that sell refill kits.

Hi,

How much time you have done refilling a same cartridge? You shouldn't refill a same cartridge more than three times. Make sure that the cartridges are OK. May be the head of the cartridges are not in good condition. You may need to replace cartridge. Check that you have installed the cartridges properly or reinstall it. Align the cartridges. If it doesn't solve your problem then you have to replace the cartridges. Using original cartridge always is recommended.

It could be you have used a refilled cartridge and the date or information inside the refill is now telling printer its not recognised.
The replacement one could be faulty (if refilled).

Non-recognised ink cartridge


I haven't tried the Colour/B&W/Stop button combination suggested above, but on a Canon MG5250, switching off, then on, and immediately holding down the 'stop' button for 20-30 secs does seem to disable the block. After that the colour concerned has no indicator. It seems that refilled cartridges will woork for a few refills (showing low ink on the indicator) before requiring the permanent fix.

Canon IP4200 printed great photos when new. My


Hi,

Although refill inks can be quite good, it is likely the cause. Several companies do make good refill inks for canon but they are specific to model lines and you have to be sure you get the right ones for photo colour.

The inks you're using are likely "universal" inkjet inks and are fine for everyday printing but are rarely ever colour corrected properly for photo.

My recomendation to all of my customers is always to keep a new cartridge handy for photos but to use the refilled ones whenever they are printing anything else as it will give you the best balance between print cost and print quality.

Printer cartridges not recognised


Sometimes even when an ink cartridge has been refilled to capacity, your printer still registers it as empty. This is because your printer remembers that the cartridge was previously installed and it can only remember it as being empty. Part of this is due to technology put in place by printer manufacturers so that you will always have to buy new cartridges. Part of it is also that print catridges are clogged if not used for sometime after its empty even after refilling this is because the contact was already clogged due to the dryness of the old ink inside it before refilling so in that case you will clean/soak the contacts with solvent before refilling .
again since there is no “official” way to fix this problem, you have to basically clear the printer’s memory to make it recognize that you are installing a full cartridge. If you have tried to install the refilled cartridge and you have done all you can to convince your printer that the cartridge isn’t still empty, then basically you just have to unplug your printer for a minute and then trying reinstalling again. but it should fix this problem and it can potentially fix other annoying things your printer is doing.
