    nah sorry didn't work.
    It still has the same problem.
    I cleaned both contacts, on the cartridge and the unit, made no difference,
    Then I tried putting in another new cartridge as well, to no avail.

    It has been bounced around in an old landrover, I don't know how much these 'mobile' units are supposed to be able to take. Recently we were on corrugated dirt roads in Western Australia which shook the b'jeebas out of everything.

    But still I would welcome any other suggestions

    no the cartriges are in the right place and they click in fine.
    thanks

    i think you must be looking at a different printer
    With mine you can't put the cartridges around the wrong way as one is big and one is small,
    and the ink pad is not on the left, it is on the bottom?

Ok ,open your catridge door,use a flash light to see on the left side of the carriage. If there is plenty of ink, most probably black, you must go to your service person to clean it. Don't tell him your printer is not working, but tell him it need cleaning the excess ink on the carriage.

Sorry,but are you putting the colour and B&W in the correct place? When you put it, do you get the tough clicking sound? I too had this problem many time,but this way i solved it. Try.Don't loose patient.

It's because you touched the connection side of the cartidge. Clean it with some contact cleaner(or surgical sprit)and let it dry.If possible clean the printer side of catridge contact.After both are dried well, put the catridge back.it must work.

Keep getting error msg ink tank cannot be recognized after I replaced all ink cart


Hi

try removing/replacing all cartridges again - ONE AT A TIME. If that doesn't work, open the printer again and check which cartridge LED is not on. Replace the 'LED off' cartridge with a new one.

good luck

My ink cartridge won't move & is stuck on the right side. When I turn my printer on it tries to move back and forth like normal but only moves about a 1/4 inch and then moves back. It does this...

Hi, i'm getting error message 1203 on the printer and we've lost the user's manual. Can you tell me what this is?


Error 1203 is a very interesting error code. Here is what I found out about error 1203



Error 1203 is a very interesting cartridge error. It means your cartridges overflow even from brand new cartridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the cartridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the cartridge


Solution:
I use the lint free cloth(coffee filter work great) with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the cartridges a couple times then run clean cartridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of lint free cloth(coffee filter work great on those holder contact panel.

Error 1203.


It's mean your catridges overflow even from brand new catridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the catridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the catridge. I have the same problem which I think lexmark have a proble and overlook.
Solution:
I use the klennex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
The refill ink work very well if you let it sit 24 hrs. Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the catridges a couple times then run clean catridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of klennex on those holder contact panel.

Problem with new ink cartridge


More that likely the refilled ink cartridges are faulty and should be replaced. While some folks have pretty good luck with refilled cartridges, it is generally better to stick with the new ones.

As to the problem with old cartridges, keep in mind that the estimated ink levels are just that - estimates. However, if your printer has an option for cleaning the cartridges, try that before chunking them. Take them out, put them back in, and run the cleaning process. Sometimes the nozzles can get clogged up and running the cleaning process will clear them up. ( DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN THE CARTRIDGES MANUALLY!)

If none of this helps, you will more than likely just need to get some new cartridges. - Graye

Black ink not printing


Fix ink cartridge
I had same problem. I must have ran the clean cycle more than 30-50 times over a period of days. That never made any difference. I was about to toss the whole thing but figured I would try one more thing. If it didn't work I would be in no worse shape. Here is what I did.
Took an almost empty black cartridge and inject a lot of 100% Acetone to dilute ink. Left some black in it since I didn't want to think it was empty. Inserted this cartridge and ran the cleaning a few time. IT WORKED. I used my word processor program and filled a page with large bold font characters and printed a page or two. Each page cleared more nozzles. After doing this cleaning/printing a number of time, I put in the full good cartridge. Ran the cleaning a few time to eject any of the Acetone diluted ink. Ran the printed page a few time to remove more of the diluted ink.
Everything seems to work now.

Ink Tank Error


The problem here is not so much the ink tanks (although that could be a cause), but the contact pins in the printer that touch the gold areas on the little pc card that is on the cartridge. Remove the cartridge, use a probe (or in desparate situations a finger), and feel for the contacts at the front of the cartredge carrier (stick the whatever into the slot that is left when you take the cartridge out of the carrier), and gently pull them upwards. Presto! the cartridge should now work when you put it back into place. You might have to bend the pins upwards a couple of times to get this fix to work, but it sure beats calling Canon every time a cartridge gives these errors! Good luck...
