    You could have either a flawed cartridge or it's installed improperly. Take each cartridge out, examine it carefully, put it back in to see if you can identify the offending cartridge and check to see if there's a protective film of some time still attached. If you know which one is causing the problem then try swapping it out with another to see if that solves the problem.

    I was wondering how long it would take you to pop in and move it. Not long! :D

    Printer gives error in numbers because user can understand which type of error occurred. 1681 Error code indicates that two ink tanks of same colors are installed. You can check your ink tanks to solve this error.
