Hi,

I tried installing a full ink cartridge (CO), but the cartridge will not click in place. I tried two different cartridges, both Canon manufactured. Printer is showing error 1660. Any comments / hints would be appreciated.

Best,

Try to clean the gold contacts of the chip sensor inside the printer with a long Q-tip drenched in pure isopropanol and also the chips of your cartridges. Have a look with a torch if the contacts are levelled and not indentated.

It might be that the part holding the cart in place ( a flexible plastic tab or similar) it's broken. If so, then you're in trouble, because the cartridge won't seat firmly against the printer contacts -> no communication between chip and printer -> error 1660.
For your sake, I hope that the problem lies elsewhere (dirty contacts, like pharmacist said ).
