Canon Pixma iP1600- Service Error 5202

I just got my ink cartridges refilled, and my printer was fine before. Now, I keep getting the Service Error 5202. I tried running the cartridges in warm water, soaking it, and ink does come out.
What should I do?

Thank you very much! :)

I refilled my black cartridge of Pixma iP 1600. I have done it 3 times before and it worked perfectly until yesterday. Now when I refilled it the 4th time, the yellow LED blinks 5 times and then the green...


The manual for the PIXMA iP1600 says the following concerning the 5 blinks:

The ink cartridges are not properly installed, or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed (the ink cartridge EEPROM data is abnormal). Install the ink cartridges properly. Or, confirm that the supported ink cartridges are installed.

If you haven't already I would take a look at the electrical contacts on the cartridge to make sure they are clean (free of dust and ink) and then reinstall them in the printer. If the printer gives the same error, it's time to buy a new cartridge. 3 refills from a cartridge is not bad at all.

Hope this helps,

Steve

Ink cartridges can't be refilled more than a few times before they lose vacuum or can hold pressure which can affect performance.

Try to use only genuine new Canon cartridges for max. performance and quality.

The error number 1660, how do i reset the printer to take refilled cartridges


You don't reset the printer, you reset the cartridges. If the inks have a little circuit board on them you go online and buy a chip resetter, or you buy refilled cartridges that have a new chip on them already. There is nothing in the printer to make it take refilled inks.

I have been purchasing the less expensive ink cartridges (#30 and #31) for my pixma ip1600 and they have worked fine. I just put a #30 in my printer and it won't work. What happened?


Was the replacement cartridge Canon brand on a refill? Either way that style Canon printers are designed to not accept refiled printer cartridges for the 30s, 40s or 50s. It is likely that the printer deemed your cartridge not an un-used original and turned it into an inky paper weight. I would return the cartridge to where ever you purchased it and be sure to only purchase new Canon brand for that machine.

After refilling the colored cartridge, error message say that the colored cartridge is empty what do i do?


There is no way to reset the ink levels on these cartridges. If the printer will print, just print until the ink runs out. You can also tell your printer to "ignore ink levels" so you don't get the low ink message every time you print.

Refilled cartridges


Most manufactures put small chips in the ink cartridges. The driver software knows when you have inserted a re-filled "same cartridge". Hence you get an error.
Theres one way around this wall.
Keep at least two emptied cartridges. (Prefered three).
Go ahead & refill them & store them standing up so the nozzle does not dry out. Rotate your replacements.

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
