Question about Canon Pixma iP6600D InkJet Photo Printer
I often get the following message on my Canon iP6600D ink Jet printer. "More than one ink tank of the following color is installed." It is always referring to the same tank the photo cyan. I have refilled them many times and the message continues the same. If I remove the ink tank and reinstall it will eventually work. Sometimes it takes several times before it works. This is very frustrating and time consuming. Is there any way to by pass these messages? Thank you in advance Grampa9
I think I figured this B!tch out.
When you get the error:
"More than one ink tank of the following color is installed" or
"Ink cartridge not recognized"
Open up the lid where the cartridges are and hold done the "SEARCH" button. This has been working for me, and I bought my ip6600d in 2005, so my machine is old, and ready for this..........ORIGINAL INK!!! Never really used it beyond printing very few pics. So I was really pissed when I found these messages to almost 5 years after buying this printer. So to recap, open the lid where the ink cartridges are while holding the "SEARCH" button, hold it up for like 5 to 10 seconds, place lid down still holding the search button, then let go of the search button. I did notice the alarm was lit, but went away after I released the search button. Good Luck!!!
Until I held the search button down I had turned of the printer, reseeded the cartridges and open and closed the lid but it never worked.

I have the same problem, purchasing a new and genuine ink tank was no help. Only removing and reinstalling the tank, sometimes multiple times, seems to correct the issue. Every time it is the Magenta tank too...

I have the same problem, which is what led me to this forum. As you say the only solution I have found is to remove and re-seat the cyan cartridge.

This printer is crap!!! The cartridges are more expensive then the printer itself... and I still have this message...It usually worked with all your tips and tricks, but now it won't work at all...Can I bypass this message and print anyway? I want to print in black and white!!! I don't need this Magenta color!!!
