open the top lid cover.
The printer carriage ink will position itself in the middle.
Lift up the cover and gently remove the ink cartridges upward.
Examine the ink cartridge. Drill a small hole at the mid section at the top of the cartridge. Small enough for the syringe carrying the ink to get in. Do not push the needle of the syringe inside so far, cause this may damage he foam inside the cartridge. Press gently and slowly the ink in the syringe. After filling up the cartridge , do not forget to cover the small opening as this may dry up the ink.
Return back the cartridge to he printer.

After that reset the printer. Press and hold down the resume button and wait untill the printer restart itself.

Hope it helps.

Place the empty PG-30 cartridge on a layer of paper towels on a flat surface.

Use the thumb screwdriver to enlarge the small refill hole just below the letter "B" on the top of the cartridge.

Fill the syringe with 20 ml. of black printer ink.

Slowly insert the syringe into the refill hole that you drilled and release the contents of the syringe.

Allow the cartridge to sit upright for 4 hours before inserting into the printer.

Power up your printer. You should hold the paper feed or the 'stop reset' button down for about 10 seconds.

Having same problem on 2 IP2600's - they say going to 'Maintenance' and choosing 'Roller Cleaning' should do it -- if that doesn't work expert says to clean it manually with ear swab & water (the roller is the little rubber circle in bottom right feeder area).

You can download the software and drivers from the manufacturer's support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, select the operating system of your computer (Windows XP/ Vista..) from the drop-down menu (See attached image).
Then download the required drivers and software.

The list of available software and drivers will load only after selecting the operating system of the computer.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hold down (most forward) paper feed button (yellow light) for about 30 seconds. Ink minder function will be turned off, and will no longer moniter ink level.

Canon Pixma... | Answered on Nov 21, 2010

The ink-jet printers if not used get the ink dry and this can affect the quality of the printing as well as the print head. So it is recommended you use it every once in a while to avoid ink getting dried inside.
