    I tried to print with my Canon Pixma i4300 and the system notified me that the cartidge (the yellow one in my case) is empty and needs to be replaced.
    I unistalled it and when I checked it out there was still c.25% of ink in it.
    I put the cartidge back (just in case...) but the led was still blinking.
    What can I do?
    (I read something about "Ink waste counter reset" and stuff. Can this be the solution?)
    Enlighten me! :p

I have a canon pixma ip2770. I just had an ink refill for the first time but magenta ink won't work. I tried cleaning, deep cleaning, etc. but the other ink worked just fine except magenta. what should I...


Sometimes after a refiling they cover a small air holes on the top of the cartridge when replacing the label. remove the label completely and try again.
Also the magenta might have been to empty for a refill to work correctly. There is a lower chamber in the cartridge that air can get into and stop the flow from the top section. This link below can help in that case. http://www.fixya.com/support/r3986425-unblock_print_heads
I hope this helps Regards GM

How to refill pixma mx700 magenta ink tank without


The colors are individual. That machine takes the Canon CLI-8. I would suggest reading your manual on what the procedure is for changing the ink cartridges out, it typically varies slightly by machine. There should be an option somewhere one of the menus to change the ink cartridges. When you buy a replacement be sure you buy from someone who isn't trying to scam you. I would recommend Cartridge World, of course, or OEM. Do not use cheap online cartridges, you will only have headache later.

Canon pixma ip4300 - magenta ink is recognized but not printing


Take the print head out of the machine and sit it in a saucer of very hot ( just off boil) water about 10mm deep for a minute. Take it out and sit in on a pad of paper towel to dry briefly before returning it and the cartridges into the machine. Give it a deep clean and try again. If still no good, the print head has probably had it.

The light for the magenta cartridge on my iP3500 printer goes off


The cartridge, as well as all ink jet cartridges has a chip inside that tells it how much ink is in the cartridge. Your cartridge is LYING, except it prevents you from printing without all cartridges working. ( same for my 6 color epson ). You need to replace the cartridge. I get my cartridges at a yahoo store called Inks4less. They have good quality for cheap.

There was a study done, analizing the amount of inks left in inkjet cartridges when they indicated empty, and the range was 7% to 25% ink still left.

Cartridges don't work


Sounds like you got a defective cartridge, it happens once in a while. On some Canons, you hold the resume button for 5 seconds and it will ignore the error, not sure on your model printer.

More than one ink tank of the following color is installed


Other forums report this problem as a faulty ink cartridge that cannot be recognized or gets recognized as the wrong color. Calling canon tech support will usually result in a free replacement from Canon. If not, try purchasing a new cart before ditching the printer.

Canon Pixma MP530


I am in the same situation. When 'Check Ink' comes up, the yellow cartridge blinks.  If I take it out and put it back again, the printer will work.  Then after a while on idle mode, the problem will show up again.  Pretty annoying.
