Question about Canon PIXMA iP6700D InkJet Photo Printer
Hi, my printer suddenly does not recognize ink tank yellow. error number 1415 When I hit print on my computer, it comes up with error 1415, the printer stops, the red light is out on the yellow tank. If I push the tank up and back down, the red light comes back on, but the minute I close the top of the printer, the error code reappears on the printer window. I have always used canon inks with this printer. The printer has not even been used that much. Please advise! thank you
I think I have come up with a solution!
When the error happens:
Open the cover and re-seat the cartridge.
Tilt the whole printer forward about 30 degrees or more
Close the cover.
This has worked for me multiple times now. I think there is a small sensor behind the contact chip that detects ink levels and when my printer is flat the level of ink is lower than the sensor, when I tilt the printer the error vanishes because the ink covers the sensor. Though I am not sure why the software in the printer determines that there are duplicate cartridges instead of just a low ink warning.
If you still can't get it try taking a standard pencil eraser and gently rub it over the contacts to clean off any oxidation, also do this to the prongs that contact the chip that are inside the cartridge carrier, They bend easily so do it very lightly.

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.
