This can be happens, but with after several times taking it out, cleaning cartridge and slot and replacing it usually works. so just try it ,To use refilled cartridges disable the ink level indicator. that my help you .

Re: Canon printer won't recognize ink cartridge

Tried to refill cartridge and printer unable to recognize that . there was no options available for Canon .so tried to deep clean service after installing the new filled cartridge, as I did this a new option registered that allowed me to bypass the empty cartridge. I canceled the cleaning and printing starts

Re: Canon printer won't recognize ink cartridge

have a chip re-setter machine but before that disable the ink level indicator but still press the reset button. sometime there is need to reset it as it was none chipped cartridge. the another thing is just get buy a new cartridge for your printer.

Re: Canon printer won't recognize ink cartridge

Some time it will show error messages about how dangerous it is to use refilled cartridges, and are you sure you really, really want to print.Use Alcohol and cleaned the gold contacts on both the cartridge and the mating contacts in the printer.This will solve your problem.

If you refill your cartridges more then 3 times,then it is expired and that's why it is not displayed in your printer.For this,you have to go for ma new cartridge.

Re: Canon printer won't recognize ink cartridge

Try below steps.May be it will helpful.

1. I used a Q-tip with Isopropyl Alcohol and cleaned the gold contacts on both the cartridge and the mating contacts in the printer.

2. Then from the Setup Menu, I found a menu called Tools. From there I ran "Align Print Cartridges".

3. From the same menu I also ran "Clean Print Cartridges"

4. I then ran a few test prints by going into the Setup Menu and then choosing "Print Report" and then selecting "Self-Test Report". It prints grid patterns in black & white as well as magenta, yellow and blue. The black grid pattern had some missing lines until I printed this report a few times.

5. I made a few photocopies and now the printouts no longer have large stripes of missing ink as it did in the earlier steps.

Re: Canon printer won't recognize ink cartridge

Did you remove the tap from the head of ink cartridge?First remove it,then take out the cartridges and after some time ,snap it back.Then align the cartridge and then run the cleaning cycle.
