    Hello

    I refilled the black Ink cartridge on my Canon Pixma MP190 All-in-One Inkjet - Printer. I have refilled the black Ink cartridge many of times and this is the first time this massage as come up or wouldn't print.

    Ink cartridge cannot be recognized.

    I have googled with no luck as yet to sort out problem.

    Can anyone help with a solution to the problem?

    Thanks

    Thanks greg_68

    I shall give it ago?

    yes. you'll need to thoroughly clean the heads with isopropyl (I think it is - kits available on the bay, Printhead Hospital item 140501520839) then you may need to use originals to start with, I did as my printer wouldnt recognise my compats.

    Sounds strange but googling says to try rebooting the pc.

    Found this, maybe worth a try.


    A Canon Pixma MP250 printer will stop recognizing the ink cartridge if it's past the cartridge's expiration date. This is true even if there's still usable ink left in the cartridge. Resetting the printer will solve this problem by turning back the date associated with the expiration of the cartridge. Performing a reset of the printer will also remedy other problems such as the printer not recognizing the ink cartridge, error messages saying the ink cartridge isn't installed properly, and other problems associated with refilling the ink cartridge.

    1.
    * 1

    Press the power button to turn off the printer.
    * 2

    Hold the "Stop/Reset" button while pushing the power button. While still holding down the power button, release the "Stop/Reset" button and then push it twice in a row.
    * 3

    Wait approximately 20 to 30 seconds until the LED shows 0.
    * 4

    Push the "Stop/Reset" button four times in a row.
    * 5

    Push the power button twice.
    * 6

    Turn off the printer by pushing the power button one more time. The printer is now reset. Next comes resetting the counter on the cartridge.
    * 7

    Unplug the power and the USB cables from the printer.
    * 8

    Open the cartridge door and hold down the power button.
    * 9

    Reconnect the power cables while still holding down the power button.
    * 10

    Close the cartridge door and release the power button. The ink cartridge is now reset.

    Sorry. I gave you the link to a 500ml bottle. I bought a 50ml set for £10 and it should do several cleans (once every 6 months or so)

    Thanks anyway greg_68

    I think kingy58 may of come up with the answer. I will try cleaning heads and get back.

    Thanks again.

    According to my info above cartridges maybe time stamped and so your one may have expired, if true no end of cleaning or messing about with the cartridges will make any difference.

    I've never heard of this time stamping a cartridge before though.
