Re: Canon Bubble Jet iP1600
If ink comes out of the ink nozzles on the cartridge then you probably just need to reset the printer page counter. Each time the cartridge is removed from the printer an empty cartridge message appears and a blinking amber light will display on the printer. Hold the paper feed button down for 3-5 seconds, and that should override the counter.
If ink isn?t coming out of the ink nozzles then you may have an air pocket preventing the flow of ink. Try running your printer cleaning cycle a couple of times to see if that helps. Lastly you might try letting the cartridge site for 24 hours to let gravity try to fix it. As a last resort you can try unplugging your refill hole in the cartridge. If your cartridge ink is going to flow it will now, just be ready to re-plug the fill hole.

I have refilled my canon iP 1980 printer catridges and I am currently encountering 2 problems:
a) The notification telling me that the ink is running low wil not dissapear.
b) There are lines across my documents when I print them. Those lines resemble those that occur when the ink is running out. however, I have already refilled it twice and am quite sure that the catridge is now full.
Please help--your advise will be greatly appreciated.
This is deffinately due to catridge circuit problem.Canon suggest that we have to replace emptied catridges with new genuine canon catridge they dont suggest refilling and also not give any support for refilling catridges. So you can replace catridge with new one.
This Happens due to weakining of catridge circuit portion or may long period printer not in use.
If you not want to replace catridges i will give you the possible hints it may fix refilled catridges.
1.Clean the catridge circuit portion with soft cloth,care must be taken that there is no smudge or ink traces on catridge circuit.
2.Clean the ciruit of printer catridge placing box present inside the printer .wipe out the any sumdge or ink traces.
Then re install the catridges. give the print if it shows error press resume button continuosly. I think it will fix your problem.
If it is not solution is replace the catridge with new one.
To get your printer to recognize the new cartridge; go to start - printer and faxes -right click on printer - preferences (printing preferences) -settings -load factory settings. Print test page Ctrl+P
I have not had good luck with refills, or off brand ink. The factory stuff does not give you this grief. The Canon is a good unit, give it the good stuff. Do not use 'clean cartrige' too much or you will get the waste tray full, and that's the end of your machine.
When you say print an inch then blank an inch.
Does the paper move and the head work and imply leaves blank paper?
Or do mean the printer stops a while then picks up from where it left off.
Is this a bubble jet?- That is does the cartridge come with the heads built in and a contact strip on the side -
Or is it the other sort where the cartridge is an ink tank and the head stays in the machine, but are removable?
If you get a completed document but with blanks this is a head problem.
If you get a complete full document but the takes breaks this is a computer spooler problem
A head problem
Take the cartridge and/or head out of machine and stand in a saucers with a tissue damped in a water /alcohol mix -Windex, or car screen wash, even Jack Danials or your favorite spirit.
When the tissue is thoroughly discoloured[leave overnight]- replace and give the machine ar un and come back.
If it is taking breaks but eventually giving a complete document then check out drivers/Scratch disk and software on the computer.
