I talked to a Canon personnel and he said that if the error is . He said the software is the one doing the destruction. All new IP printers from IP1.
Only IP1. 20. 0 software doesn't have the capability to destroy the cartridge. If I try to open that russian software (i.
PTool) it crashes just at the begining. I really don't want to throw this new printer in the trash can : (. Replace the cartridges, making sure thet are fully clicked into position in the correct slots, then try the printer to see if there is any difference.
If there was no difference, I would try to borrow some known good cartridges and see if they worked in my machine.
As a last resort, I would buy two new cartridges (because the message doesn't say which one is causing the problem). New cartridges are almost as expensive as the printer, so if I still ended up junking the printer, I would auction them as nearly- new on e. Bay. Have you tried disabling the monitoring as suggested by metalhead.
I refilled them when I got the warning message.
I haven't taken a cartridge apart to find out, but it seems that they contain a chip which can remember messages it has received from the printer. There is a chip resetter available for Epson cartridges and no doubt someone will come along with a Canon resetter before too long. So it might be worth hanging on to your old cartridges until that time.
If anyone has bought new cartridges, it might be worth trying a little experiment - Start the reset tool with new cartridges in the printer, then change back to the old cartridges and see if they can be reset. Might work?
Mike. Nobody touched them by the hands
- this IPTool freezes if I turn- on my printer
Damn! If there is invalid data in the buffer, or sensors are stuck in a particular mode; errors may occur.
Follow these steps to reset the printer:
1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).
Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to Wi. Fi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .
3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 1.
If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data cable (not applicable to Wi. Fi, Bluetooth or Infrared).
4. Turn the printer back on.
Note: If resetting the printer does not work, please attempt any other solutions that appeared in your search results. If this is a hardware error on the printer, the printer may need to be repaired.
If that doesn't help, contact them by email and tell them you have a problem. Then post their reply here, so we can all see what they say.
I just wonder if there is a problem with their software? See if it runs (you should be able to read the ink levels and print a test page).
If that is ok, leave it running and re- install your old cartridges.
Now see if you can perform a reset.
You could also try only changing one cartridge at a time, because it may be that only one of them has been 'switched off'.
Let us know how you get on. I did try the procedure on a CL- 3.
PG- 4. 0 and CL- 4. I look forward to getting my HP 6. L pieces out of the box and letting you all help me get it running again. Didn't work unfortunately. There doesn't seem to be any instructions out there for this type of cartridge.
Anyone done it and can pass on info. Thanks
It didn't work and I have very messy fingers now. Is the cartidge really destroyed for the moment ? I think seriously to change my printer.
I will buy Hewlett Packard within the same price range. Read everything above so will give it a try.
I must mention i have the CL- 3. OEM version of CL- 4.
