Have you tried re-seating the cartridges by removing them and re-inserting them? It's possible they are aligned incorrectly

I am not sure how I got to this site and had to pay. I was on with Canon Printer. I want and expect a refund. NOW
Expert:  Jesse Brower replied 8 months ago.

Unfortunately I cannot help you with the refund process, but I am sure that our customer service department will help you out with that if you're dissatisfied with this service.

Expert:  Jesse Brower replied 8 months ago.

I would still recommend re-seating your ink cartridges, though; the other thing I recommend trying is removing them and wiping them off with a clean piece of paper towel to ensure that nothing is preventing them from making contact inside of the machine

I'm sorry to hear you are upset, but I hope that this advice helps!
