Although i've installed it correctly and my computer registers that it is active when i go to do a testy-mc-print it wont work. it says theres an error and once or twice a box has poped up on my screen and said sumink like; your ink overflow cartridge is full and i need to contact canon bouts it but... canon have set up there website so that it spacks out when your completting the form for support which is really helpfull...NOT.

The printer needs servicing to replace the ink overflow which has become full with old ink.
The printer stops working when that point is reached to avoid ink getting everywhere and ruining your printouts.

It's generally less hassle to just buy a new printer when servicing is required, unless it's a 'pro' model costing several hundered pounds.
