SOURCE: ink replaced, but sows nothing

the ink cartridges have a ink memory chip inside. it operates on the number of pages printed not the actual amount of ink inside the cartridge. if you go to some sites that refill cartridges, they'll tell you how to reset the "ink left" memory. the ink is in a sponge inside the cartridge. it flows by gravity to the printhead. the sponge is an open celled poly sponge. there are tiny air flow passages just under the tape on top of the cartridge. I have an all-in-one 5610 and when I get a low ink indication I just keep printing. when the copy gets blotchy I just replace the cartridge. If my color is off, I can usually refill the color and keep printing. I can refill the cartridge twice before the bubble jet printhead needs a new cartridge.

You need both. One is pigment and the other is dye. One is used for photographs and the other for non-photographs - but it's the printer that decides which one to use.
All Canon printers (to my knowledge) will stop working if any one ink cartridge is empty. This is to prevent damage to the print nozzles. The ink itself is the cooling medium for the hot nozzles.

Erreur code : 6A00 What to do ?

It's most likely a little sponge on the very right side beside your ink. If you open the top, push your ink to the left then look to the VERY right...there is most likely a little spongy thing that if you push down (your hands WILL be black after this) and should work.

Just press and hold down the resume/cancel button (the circle with inverted triangle) and wait until the printer restart.

That should fix it.
