The Times Of India , a print and digital newspaper in India, has reported that the new Canon EPT-500 inkjet print cartridge has a faulty circuit board.
The news comes after a new batch of the inkjet cartridges, known as the Epson Ciss ink cartridge, were announced by Canon in January.
The cartridges are made by Epson, which has previously struggled with the recall of several Epson printers.
The Epson cartridges were originally released in 2013, but since then have seen a number of changes.
These include a new firmware update that requires a new version of the printer driver, which in turn requires the EPT500 to run on an Intel-based platform, the Times of India reported.
The EPT1000 inkjet was also launched in 2016.
As of January 2018, Canon E-Series and E-series Epson print cartridges have the same firmware and can be used on the same Canon EP-500 printer.
But there are still some issues with the cartridges, the report said.
It’s not the first time the ink cartridges have faced issues.
A similar issue in the US resulted in a recall of about 400 million Canon EPS inkjet prints.
