Does the canon pixma ip1200 need both the black and the colour cartridges in to print ?

You need both cartridges. It is a paradox that you need both cartridges to even scan on the mfp,s

What is error e5 in mp 198 printer

E5 - The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed , or the ink cartridges are not installed properly..

  • In certain models of Canon Pixma printers such as the Canon MP160 and Canon MP150, you may receive an E5 error when trying to print. In this state, you will not be able to use any of the functions of your printer. The error itself is an ink cartridge error. It may be that you are using generic or off-brand ink cartridges in your Canon Pixma printer. Canon Pixma printers do not work with other brands of print cartridges; invest in Canon brand ink cartridges and this should take care of your problem.

    Every i try to print i get an error message 53 stating the ink cartridge is not installed properly or not compatible with the printer

    Hi there
    You can try this it some times works.

    Super Canon User's method of resetting IP1600
    1.Press Resume button hold for 1 - 2 minutes (count to 1 to 15-16)
    2.Open the cover right away
    3.Release Both cartridges out and then put cartridges them back again
    4.Close The Cover
    5.Turn Off Then Turn On again.

    You can download the Resetter tools program from my website.

    Click Link =
    1. Download software for Canon iP1200, iP1600, 2200 Printers.
    2. Unzip downloaded file by etc
    3. Run GeneralTool.exe
    4. Select the connected USB port number from USB PORT
    5. Click LOCK RELEASE, and select the applicable model name in SET DESTINATION
    6. In CLEAR WASTE INK COUNTER, select MAIN or PLATEN. The selected waste ink counter will be reset. MAIN resets the main waste ink counter, PLATEN resets the platen waste ink counter.
    If both the main and platen waste ink absorbers are replaced, reset both the main and platen waste ink counters.

    Canon pixma ip1600 new colour ink cartridge unrecognised

    Hi Nicole,
    The problem you are describing seems to be one of Genuine parts compatibility? Are you inserting the Canon replacement cartridges? if not then the printer will fail to communicate with them. I had the same problem, unfortunately these replacement/s carry printed circuits with information chips that only communicate with their genuine machine/s.
    If the cartridges are genuine then maybe a fault on their circuit boards/chips and should be returned to the seller.
    I hope this helps?
    Happy New Year!

    I have an iP-1600 Pixma printer. I have replaced both ink cartridges and the printer does print; however, the box still comes up saying "printer ink is low; replace cartridge." How do I get rid of this...

    I think you are using 40/41 or 830/831 cartridge sets. Ink cartridge 41 are now a days found defective, even if it has original company mark. Tell your vendor to replace it with genuine one. Neglect the message "ink volume low". Try to print in gray scale mode avoid colour printing.At least you will be able to get your documents printed.

    Printer wont recognise new colour cartridge

    most common, is there is a tiny piece of lint or paper shred, has worked its way between the ink cartridge and the print carrieage connectors,
    take the cartridges out and wipe down the connectors on the cartridge and carriage with a lint free cloth or lens brush
    Isopropyl alcohol is a good residue free cleaning fluid,
    if no all the connectors answer, the printer assumes a wrong cartridge

    not a guarantee, just something to try

    Canon PIXM iP1600 ink replacement

    Each time the cartridge is removed from the printer an "empty cartridge" message appears and a blinking amber light will come on, on the printer. Holding the paper feed button down for 3-5 sec. will allow you to override the counter.
