You can find the solution here:

You must hold the stop/resume button for 2 or 3 seconds. The printers detects that it's a filled cartridge and alert you about it... That's all.

  • Hold the Power Button, release the Resume Button.
  • Not releasing the Power Button, double click “Resume” and release Both Buttons.
  • Click “Resume” for Four times
  • Once you click “Power”, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber). To disable the printer “Power” button to click again.

Canon Pixma MP610 CARTRIDGE PROBLEM

Have been using the MP610 for 2 months from new without any problems until now when each time I try to power up, Error message says U150 The following ink tank cannot be recognised. On lifting the panel discovers that the Yellow ink light is turned off. Removed the ink cartridge and placed back and the light comes on again. However when all the cartridges goes back into the printing position, same error message appears because the cartridge light is turned off again.

How do I get the light to stay on so that the cartridge is recognised?

Have tried removing all the cartridges and replacing them again but with the same error message appearing each time.

HELP!!!

Desperate,
Kegan

HI. Try holding the reset button for 6 seconds to overide the error. This may dissable the chip so it won't report but will allow you to keep printing. Simply check the ink tanks visually.

Refilling will give the same error too, again dissable the error.

Canon MP 210 gives E5 error and will not print.

Looked on internet but found nothing that works. Others seem to have had this problem but don't find anything that looks like a solution. Printer has never worked. Has black plus color cartridges properly installed. They are not refilled cartridges. Printer just doesn't want to print.

disconnect the power and usb cable from the back of the printer and press and hold down the
power button for 30 sec and then reconnect the cables and try again...open the backdoor and
try to move the rollers in upward direction.Make sure the unit is connected directly to the
walljack.

As for the drivers, go to the following link and then click on the "Drivers and Downloads" tab, then choose your operating system. It should then give you the drivers under the "Driver" heading right below the operating system drop-down box. The software is there as well.
