Question about Canon PIXMA iP6700D InkJet Photo Printer
I have a brand new Yellow ink tank installed. it printed fine for about a week, but now the printer comes up with an error saying the ink tank is not recognized. this is a Canon Brand ink tank. i've tried removing and replacing the cartridge, but still comes up with the error. HELP!
Here's info on the reset:
When your printer detects a problem with the cartridge you are attempting to use, a flag is set inside the device. This flag may not reset until you perform a hard reset on the device.
1. Verify that the printer is turned on.
2. Open printer's lid/top cover and remove all of the cartridges from their carriers. Close the lid/top cover.
3. Unplug the power cord from the printer.
4. Wait for 10 minutes.
5. Plug the power cord back into the printer.
6. Open the lid/top cover and reinsert both cartridges back in to their carriers.
7. Turn the printer on.
8. Print a test page.

Chip(s) not recognised can have number of causes. The most likely one is bad connection between the chip itself (on ink tank) and the contacts (in printer). Just wipeing the chip & contacts with metho can cure the problem.
hope this helps

If a brand new ink tank is not recognized, it has a faulty chip. I took the chip off the faulty tank and replaced it with another one. That worked for me.

Tips for a great answer:
You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
- On: The printer is ready to print.
- Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
- Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
- Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.

The ink that is given to you when you buy a new machine is not the same as if you went out and bought ink. The "starter" ink cartridges are not filled completely (that is a marketing gimmick to get you to buy more quickly). When you say "NEW" do you mean "new, never been used", or "new, just got it last week"?
If it's never been used, be sure that you have removed the protective tape from that cartridge. If it's been removed then the cartridge its self could have a problem or the machine could be at fault (not correctly reading the ink). You choices are to return it to where you got it, or buy a yellow cartridge and replace it.
If it was working and stopped after a very short time (a week or two) I would get a new yellow and try it.
For your sake I hope it's the protective tape was forgotten, it happens quite often.
