Ink tank lamp lights not coming on when ink cartridges installed


Remove tape from the ink tank - MP800R / MP830 / MP530

Check ink tank vent hole The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads. It is necessary to adjust air pressure outside and inside the tank so that ink flows properly. If ink does not come out, check to make sure that the protective film has been correctly removed.
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the Open button. (The paper output tray will open.)

Alarm light on, Display indicates error message: Check Ink U150 M


I added my post today with the same problem, and thought I'd share what I since learned. Apparently this "Alarm light/U150" is common with several Canon models. The U150 indicates a faulty electronic chip (on the ink cartridge). Though I tried cleaning the sensor with isopropyl alcohol, and also tried removing all the cartridges, unplugging the printer for 45 seconds, then reconnecting,etc. as I had read might help, I still had the same frustrating problem. Contacting Canon was the solution that worked for me. First I emailed, but decided I didn't want to wait for their response. A call to Canon Tech Support (1-800-385-2155) was quick and painless. They will more than likely send you a new cartridge, but you'll need to have your serial # & date of purchase handy.
