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

This model printer has only two slots for ink cartridges. One is for a black ink cartrigde and the other is for a tri-color cartridge which contains cyan, magenta and yellow inks.
This tri-color cartridge has run out of yellow ink, you need to replace this tri-color 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!

We just bought a new color ink cartridge, and the


Pull the cartridge and visually check it for ink in the reservoir. Check the cartridge to make sure that the packing tape has been completely removed from over the sensing chip and the breather hole on top. If they are clear and you still have the problem, the chances are that the ink cartridge is faulty and needs to be replaced. If you can take it back to the vendor, get a replacement.

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.

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 .

RECOGNITION OF GENUINE CANON INK CARTRIDGE


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
