Solved Canon IP1600 - Colour Ink Cartridge Not Recognized

Post by computerkid1328 on 28th June 2009, 7:02 pm

Hi. I have a printer that is about 3 to 5 years old. Just recently, I was refilling the black and white ink cartridge only. Once I inserted the ink cartridge back into the printer and turned on my laptop, there was this orange light that started to flash. When I tried to print something, it said that "The following ink cartridge is unrecognized - Color. Please install it into your printer." I was confused. I never touched the color ink cartridge before and how come it is undetectable? I tried to uninstall the cartridge and re-install it again but it still gave me the same message. What do I do now?

Thank You! for your help.

Are you using recycled catridges by any chance? Also try turning off the printer, taking out the cartridge and turn it back on and reinsert it.
