Does the printer recognize the old cartridge, reporting that it is empty, if so then you probably got a defective cartridge.

    Welcome to Fixya

    Look like the printer is not detecting the cartrigde. Remove the color cartridge that's blinking, rub a pencil eraser across the four gold contacts to clean them, then reinsert. Try to use a quality eraser such as magic rub.

    Thank you for using Fixya!

    Canon ip1600 ink cartridges are not recognized?

    First make sure you are placing the right
    color cartridge into the right slot.
    Most Printers are touchy about the
    installation of ink cartridges. If the
    instructions say to press the cartridge
    into the slot until you hear a loud click,
    that's what they mean. If at first you
    don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
    reinsert it into the slot again and press
    on it hard till it clicks.
    Then your printer should work properly.
    Hope this is of some help. Bud

    What is the meaning of E 4?

    An E4 error usually means your printer did not detect your ink cartridges. To fix the error, press and hold the Black & Color button for 5-10 secs. If you are using refilled cartridges, remove the cartrigdes, switch printer off and then back on. Then reinstall the cartridges and press copy.

    Cartrigde leaked ink to bottom of printer

    Print cartridge

    When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

    Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

    1. Open the top cover of the printer.

    2. Remove the print cartridges.

    3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
    Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

    5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

    6. Close the top cover.

    7. Try printing again.

    If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

    Hope this help. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

    I refilled my empty ink cartrage, but the printer still says its empty and to replace the black. how do i reset it to say full?

    without make or model number, cant do anything. Check to see if there is a chip somewhere on the ink cartridge. If so...your screwed. Some printer have a 'is this a new cartridge', follow the instructions.

    I posted the original problem. Although the cartridge was genuine I had taken it out and reinserted it as I wasn't sure I had loaded it correctly the first time. Advice from my local retailer was that this was a mistake. Canon PIXMA printers no longer recognise a cartridge once it has been removed. Solution was another new cartridge which I shan't remove until it's empty. When this second cartidge is empty I shall try the first cartridge again as it is still full and unused. It has yet to print anything! Why Canon's helpdesk couldn't help is a mystery. I conclude that Canon's printer management systems are unfriendly to users. They are friendly only to Canon. I hope my experience will help others especially those considering buying a Canon printer. dudbob
