Using refilled cartridges

My Canon Pixma iP 1600 won't accept refilled cartridges, although it has done so in the past. Is there a way I can bypass the message that says the cartridge has not been installed correctly?

Canon ip 7240 i used refill ciss but 4 flash

Hi, My name is Liam from rihac, although we do not sell printers I work very closely with them via our inklink products. When a printer flashes 4 times this is a sign that an ink tank is not installed correctly or that the cartridge will need to be replaced as it is low on ink. As you are using a CISS the cartridges will always have ink in them. To bypass this error all you will need to do is press and hold the RESUME button on the printer for 10 seconds and this will turn off the cartridges ink status monitor and allow you to continue printing.

Canon Pixma MX300 won't print black anymore! How to fix?

I have used "refill" kits in the past and for the time and effort involved you might just try finding a local retailer that will give you credit for the empty cartridge to replace with a professionally refilled one.

The problem with refilling the same cartridge over and over again is that they will, eventually, need to be replaced. I would suggest that you

1 - Make sure there is nothing plugging the hole at the top of the cartridge to allow air in, which is needed to let the ink flow out.

2- Install another cartridge and you get the same problem, then it narrows your fix to something with the printer.

3 - If it is the printer, I were rubber gloves and use "denatured alcohol" and a rag (no not use anything with paper as it can tear and leave pieces inside causing the printer to jamb) and after removing all of the cartridges wipe down anything that I can reach inside the printer.

4 - Although you have tried the DEEP CLEAN, if the none of the above works for you, try the NOZZLE CLEAN. If you are still having a problem then either re-post the problem or doe a Google Search listing the model of the printer you have, you may find out it is a problem that others have experienced and there is no solution.

Good Luck

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

Message tells me black ink cartridge empty when I just put new one in

if you are using a refilled cartridge the printer don't accept them, you need to use the proper canon ink cartridge, if you are using the canon cartridge you have to press the stop botton for 5sec for accepting the new cartridge.

My cannon printer pixma ip1800 cannot detect ink pls help me...

If after you install the cartridge you get a yellow light and error message:
“The following may have run out of color. The function for
detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the
ink level cannot be correctly detected. If you want to
continue printing with out this function, press the printer’s
start button. Canon recommends using new genuine Canon
cartridges in order to obtain optimum quality.”


Do not click “cancel printing”. Press printer start button
to start printing. This action will bypass the ink level
detection from the recycled cartridge. It will not damage the
printer! With a recycled cartridge this action needs to be
done one time.
A full recycled cartridge ink level may not display correctly.
It may show empty.
If you want to check the ink level, you can do a “Nozzle
check” by follow the directions below:
Go to menu File select print click on “Property” click
on “Maintenance”
Click on “Nozzle check” to print out the color check.
Click on “Cartridge Alignment” to align the cartridge.

See pictures for above process at Inktelligent ip 1800 topic

Also the refills refered to above are at the IP 1800 inkfilling page

Refilling a cartridge

You need to use a very thin needle (25 gauge medical needle works well) on a syringe. There is a tiny hole in the canon 40 cartridge under the label which you need to fill. To refill the color cartridge (canon 41) as you look at the cartridge, the hole at the top is magenta, the hole to the left is blue and the hole to the right is yellow, use a separate syringe and needle for each color. Every now and then you will need to use some cartridge cleaner to soften/clean the sponge in the cartridge. I use 0.5cc of cleaner then let sit overnight before adding ink. You need to be sure the label is replaced well or use good tape to keep the ink from escaping.
