Customer Question

I am just installing a Canon Pixma MG 7751. Rather than installing the standard print cartridges I bought some Genuine Canon XL 551 cartridges for this printer. Having installed them none of their red lights come on, though when I installed the standard size Gray cartidge, the light lit up with no trouble.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Printer Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Printer Technician should be aware of?
Customer: The error code 1750 is now showing in the display.
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Printer Technician about your situation and connect you two.

Hi there and welcome

This means the correct Ink is not installed. you need to use the standard ink for this printer, else it will not allow this.

It is what the error is indicating.

This is not accurate. These cartridges are designed to work with this printer, they just give a longer working life. They fit perfectly, just like the standard cartridge. The only difference is that the red light does not come on.

The error code 1750 means incorrect ink cartridges have been installed.
