How to Troubleshoot Canon Printer Ink Error

During the time of loading the remanufactured ink cartridges in your printer, your printer cannot read it or it may show it as empty. This ink error may happen as the ink monitor chip in the cartridge is intended for single-time use only. So, now you need to start printing by ignoring the message. But the printers like canon printer cannot print if it is unable to read the cartridge. By holding down the RESUME, STOP/RESET, or COLOR START button for 5 to 15 seconds, you can avoid this error message. When the ink monitor shut off you can see the printer will stop blinking. Then you can resume printing with your Canon printer.

Step by step process to fix the canon printer ink error

  • Performing the regular cleaning cycle in the printer is very important. When you have installed the new in your printer, you need to perform deep cleaning and don’t forget to verify the alignment. To test if the alignment and the ink flow is perfect or not, you need to print a few pages.
  • In the next to that, if you find out that the printer is unable to recognize the cartridge, then you need to remove the cartridge and then you have to gently wipe the electrical contacts of the cartridge with the help of a neat and clean paper towel or a lint-free cloth. By doing this, you can remove the dust that blocks the way by which the cartridge gets the contact from the printer.
  • After doing this also, if still the ink cartridge is not recognized by your canon printer, then you need to take out the unrecognized cartridge. Now, you have to turn off the printer from 30 to 60 seconds. Next, you will be able to plug in and power on the printer again and then you will be able to reinstall the cartridge so that you can print.
  • The ink error may occur in your printer when the ink cartridge with printhead has been left flat or upside down for weeks or months and because of this, the ink is unable to reach the printhead. By this, the new cartridges are also stopped from printing. Cleaning the print head can help you to solve this issue. You have to take a damp cloth to clean the cartridge and then put those cartridges with the printhead by facing down until the flow is seen. Then you have to reinstall the cartridge and now you can enjoy printing with your Canon printer.
