Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer

1 Answer

Printer does not print

I bought a canon 1p 1600 photo printer and it has never worked. The power light keeps blinking green and the cartridges are always on the right side of the printer (opposite the loading area). When I try to print I get an error message that the cartridges are not loaded properly and that they are in the loading area. As I said, they are not in the loading area and in fact I have to turn off the printer and manually move the cartridges from the very right part to the left where the loading area is to load the cartridges. I have looked on the website regarding how to load the cartridges and they snap in perfectly. As soon as I turn the printer back on the cartridges again move the right of the printer. Anyone have any insight? I would really appreciate it!

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 = http://www.4all2sell.com/reset-tools/ip1600st-RESETTER-TOOLS.zip
1. Download software for Canon iP1200, iP1600, 2200 Printers.

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.

I can't get the old cartridges out of my canon mp210 printer


On the Canon, the alarm light blinks a certain number of times and then the green light flashes for a slightly longer time. I need to know how many times the alarm light flashes between greens. That tells us what the error is.

Make sure you removed the protective film on the cartridges.I've seen this alot on new installs.Next clean the print catridge contacts with a clean moist (very little) cloth ,then dry cloth.It may work, Good Luck.
