I refilled my cartridges and overfilled or damaged my magenta cartridge. The printer will not print magenta. It prints the other cartridge colors that I refilled at the same time. I bought a new magenta oem cartridge. It will not print either.

Unfortunately, the printer is designed to need all of the ink cartridges in place and no empty ink cartridges. This is designed to protect the ink system from damage.
There is a way to print a color document in black and white but it won't help with your issue. (Enter the Printing Preferences by right clicking on the icon for the Canon MP500 in the Devices and Printers Panel (Win7). (It's Printers for the Vista Classic View and Printers and Faxes for XP) Then put a check mark in the box for Greyscale Printing in the main tab. Then click OK and close the window. There is a similar method for Mac OS versions.)
This is common in Canon Pixma printers (all models). If you are
refilling your cartridges or are buying refurbished cartridges this
will happen more often. Take the cartridge out and put it back in.
If this does not work, then replace the cartridge altogether. If
that doesn't work, you need to contact Canon (us.canon.com if you are
in the U.S.) for help. Let me know if this helps you.
Canon cartridges have an intelligent chipset to prevent them from being refilled. To have them working properly you need to reset the chipset. Try the software on this link. If the above did not work you will need to use a cartridge chip resetter if you want to refill your cartridge.
Turn the unit off and disconnect from your computer, take all the cartridges out and plug the unit back in, The selectors inside should relocate themselves, unplug it once again and re-insert the cartridges, restart your computer[just in case], plug it all back in and retry, if that does not work; reply.
Hi make sure that the cartridges are fully installed and that you have taken the packaging completely off. Failing that there are two possibilities. 1 Print cartridges faulty or refills 2 Faulty Print cartridge head.
