descriptionCanon IP1600 Ink Cartridge Not Working!

more_horiz
Hey guys.

So yea...my ink cartridge isnt working for some reason. It was working all the time until when it suddenly ran out of ink, so I added new ink in. But for some reason when I added ink in it was still not working...so then I thought that I have to wait for a bit before I use the printer, but still doesnt work!

I think its the ink cartridge's nozzle...it might be clogged...but im not sure if that is the real problem.

any suggestions?

Thanks!

Have you tried rubbing alcohol on the contacts of the cartridge?? Sometimes this works for me when I haven't printed anything for a while. Although I have never had any luck with the cartridge refill inks. Good Luck

Well, I have one question: you said that to use alcohol, but what percentage of alcohol should I use?
