That does not answer my question..............I have replaced ink tanks before with no problem. Is there a way to re program the printer so that it recognises a correct canon ink cartridge instead of rejecting it?

Thanks for your time....
Absolutely useless, I have all the information given already in the hand book!
is the cartridge is branded one or not
Please clean the print head
The cartridge is canon, print head is cleaned automatically
cleaned the head, no change.
The red light in the cartrige lights up(brighter than the others) when put in but after process routine it is extinguished when I raise the cover again after receiving the 'ink tank not recognised' display.
I have tried 3 different brand new cartridges.
