Alrm light on printer/scanner not working

My cartridges became empty and the alarm light on. I bought new cartridges pg40 and pg41 and installed it in the printer. But not working. So I downloaded the mptool.exe and tried as instructed in this web page. The black and color counters changed. Afterwords only the alarm light is on nothing working. It is not even going to service mode. I had given the printer for authorized servicing. They said EEPROM is corrupted and the board is to be changed which cost all most as cost as the printer. Give advice

I am trying to scan a document, however the black ink is empty. It only shows the error message that I should refill my ink. Shouldn't I still be able to scan documents?


Must be using PG830 or PG40 50?

For Canon, if either color or black cartridge is empty or out of ink, "Scanner" doesn't work.

That's why your scanner is not properly working.

It's all connected... That's Canon.

Are you refill your cartridge by yourself?
Try "ROADINK" inkjet refill kit. No drill or sharp needles are needed.
It's not only easy to refill, you can have quality printing.

Check out my youtube video, will find how easy refill can be done.

I own a canon iP1300 printer and just bought a new canon pg- 40 black cartridge but its not being recognized by the printer, wat do i do


Can be a problem regarding the cartridge. What is the status of the color cartridge. Take a printout with the color cartridge alone. If no problem found get your PG40 cartridge replaced. One thing to be noted is that the printer always needs the color cartridge installed. Printer can work with color cartridge alone. But will not work without a color cartridge

Refurb. Ink cartridge problems


Make certain that the labels on the cartridges are in the right postion. For instance the PG40 label should be near the two lugs at the top and NOT near the curved lug. It seems that the chip is near the curved lug maybe in the circular indent.
