Setting Ink Cartridge Canon Pixma ip1980: Keep Printing When Only One Cartridge Has Ink Inside

Written By admin on November 24, 2009 | 4:24 PM

Applicable Models: 
Canon Pixma iP series: iP1300,iP1700,iP1200,iP1600,iP2200,and iP1880
  One day a visitor left comment in comment box asking:
Is it true that ip1980 can't print while only one catridge operation. So, how i can keep printing when only 1 catridge that contain ink?
Thanks to Arcava who has left her comment in my previous post Product Review: Canon Pixma ip1980. The question gives me a fresh idea to write this post for you all.
Have you ever experienced the problem like Arcava got?. And how can you solve the problem?.
 Well, I will start by answering the question listed above. That's right that Canon Pixma ip1980 can't print when only one cartridge is installed. We must install all the cartridges both black and color.
So, how can we keep printing if you have just one cartridge with the ink inside while other is empty?. Alright, to get your printer keep printing under this condition you must specify ink cartridge for printing in the printer driver properties. You can find this function under Maintenance tab.

 The following steps will lead you how to set (specify) ink cartridge of Canon Pixma iP1980 for printing:

  1. Set all the printer cartridge both black and color cartridge (including the empty one)
  2. Right click on printer driver properties
  3. Click Maintenance tab
  4. Click on Ink Cartridge Setting mark
  5. In pop up menu, select the cartridge which has ink inside (black only or color only).
Now your printer will keep printing by using only one cartridge that you specify in Ink Cartridge Setting menu.

Note: It's not recommended to install empty cartridge in your printer for long time due to thermal issue. I promise to discuss it later, okay?

      Canon Pixma MX308: Service Call Error 6000

      Written By admin on November 03, 2009 | 8:46 PM

      Error Code: 6000
      Related Models:
      Canon Pixma MX308,MX318,MX700,MX850,MX7600
      Have you ever experienced that your Canon Pixma MX308 displays 'Service Call Error 6000' on LCD?. At the same time the printer cannot feed the paper at all. So,what happen with the printer?. Now, we'll discuss about this problem.

      Service Call Error 6000 is error code generated by the printer when the Line Feed error occurs. The error rises since Line Feed (LF) encoder signal has problem causes the printer fail in line feeding process.

      The problem may happen under the following conditions:

      • Logic board fail in reading the LF encoder signal
      • LF sensor is faulty
      • Drive assy broken
      Here are the remedial actions:
      • Replace logic board
      • Replace LF sensor
      • Replace drive assy
      Oh yes, I have unique experience with this problem. One day I found the problem and did all above actions but no result. What's wrong???. After observing the printer behaviour, I found that paper feed motor belt was set too tight gave heavy load to the motor. The problem resolved after the belt of paper feed motor was loosen. Bingo..!
