Canon i470d will not print color, checked status and settings.


Hi

Check the Printing Preferences

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Canon i470d icon > Printing Preferences > General

Select Colo(u)r Printing > Apply > OK.

Also try Nozzle Check and Print Head Cleaning:

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Canon i470d icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance.

If these do not work, change the colou cartridge and then perform Head Cleaning and/or Nozzle Check and Head Cleaning, as appropriate.

I hope this helps.

You may need to do Head Cleaning after every cartridge change.

Installed Office Depot ink cartridges, BCI 6 C and Y in my MP780. Worked ok at first, but then started getting "wrong cartridge" msg, Per canon rep, turned off mach, disconnected power, took out...


This is an example of why 2nd class refills are junk. I would try to gently clean the printer out. While a lot of people disagree with this advice, a mixture of 90% alcohol in a tiny pipit works well. Then use some lint free q-tips. Most cartridges have electronic chips on them that report the status of the cartridge. Refilled ink cartridges may have bad or defect chips.

Wrong cartridge message


It appears that the problem is not in the ink cartridges at all but rather the print head assembly. Upon disassembly of the print head it can be discovered that the thing appearing to be a logic chip, is probably responsible for several standard commands including cartridge status. One should replace the printhead and then followed the instructions on aligning the printhead. This solves the problem. It can be  bought from Canon for about $45.00 including shipping. Hopes this helps. Thank you, Have a nice day...!

Alarm says "wrong cartridge"


That happens when the print head sensor does not detect the cartridge.

To start unplug printer power cord for two minutes, and see if this can reset the error.

The wrong cartridge error may be caused also by a bad cartridge, therefore ,as first step you need to est a different cartridge, possibly a new original one.

Check also if the cartridge metal sensor inside the ink carriage is dirty and must be clean, in this case use isopropyl alcohol and cotton to clean metal contacts inside the carriage.

If that cannot fix the problem, then there is a lose connection on the wires connected to the ink carriage / print head assembly. TWhen that happens, the wires connected at the back of the ink carriage must be tested and eventually replaced.

Canon MP F50 "wrong cartridge" error


remove all cartridges leaving printhead intact.
close cover, turn off
turn on, let power up, error message should be gone.
open cover, reinstall cartridges
if you cleaned your print head like I did you'll probly
eventually end up getting a new one anyway, due to the color variations
but I can at least print text.

Very Faint Printouts


I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

Wrong cartridge


I have the multipass mp700 and have just experienced the same message ..... wrong cartridge. After reading the manual, from the disc, it means that there's something wrong with the print head, most likely needs cleaning, but it won't clean because the printer is sending a malfunction message. I will be trying to clean the head and if that doesn't fix it then I'll buy a new print head. Good luck with the problem.
