Clearing Support code 1681 on PIXMA MX922 printer


We have Support code 1681 on the large black ink cartridge on our PIXMA MX922 printer and haven't been able to clear it by replacing the ink cartridge or unplugging the power cord. It's on a wireless network. So far we haven't found any help on line for this problem. Help us if you can!

Hi bdturner,

Please open the cover to your printer and remove all of the ink tanks.  Please make sure that all of the ink tanks are Canon ink tanks and all of the orange tape/cellophane has been removed.  Please make sure that the correct ink tanks are being used as well:

CLI-251M magenta
CLI-251BK black
CLI-251Y yellow
PGI-250BK black
CLI-251C cyan

Please look inside of the printer where the ink tanks make contact with the printer and verify that there is nothing in each ink tank's slot that may be preventing contact.

Please reinsert the ink tanks and please close the cover.

If the error persists, your PIXMA MX922 would require service.  If your PIXMA MX922 was purchased less than a year ago, please contact one of Canon's Technical Support Representatives via phone or chat to obtain your in warranty options.
