Error U150 refers to a cartridge not being recognised. This is due to the refilled cartridge. The machine knows that the cartridge has already been used and is expecting a new one. Some people say that if you hold down the stop key for 3 seconds when powering up it will remove the cartridge check. I have never tried it personally.
U150 error is ink tank not recognized, it happens alot on the y cartridge. i would advise you to get a version 3 cartridge. on the back of the cartridge if you hold it in the right light you will see a code like 2AHU 3FGH, this tells us its a version 2, i would maybe buy a version 3 or 5 with a updated chip, this will work fr you, if the fault is still there then the 4 contacts in the carriage unit that reads the cartridges is prob bent or broken!
have had a MP810 about 3 months. Recently I've been getting a U150
error message. My C tank is not lighting up and being recognised. When
I open up and replace the tank the light comes on. Initially this
allowed me to carry on printing but now I have a constant error message
even after replacing the tank. Is there a permanent solution to this annoying problem? I would be grateful for any assistance.
I have a canon mp510 pixma same message U043 and a u150 fault. I cant see any chip to replace and have replaced my original cartridges with a non branded cheaper type, this might be why. Does this make a difference or is this the same problem occurring with replacement canon cartridges as well.
Dont want to buy genuine ones if its not going to make any difference.
Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.
Dirty or faulty contacts in the cartridge chamber is the only logical explanation. Remove the cart and with a cotton wool bud and a little alcohol or similar[NOT ACTETONE it melts plastic] give a gentle clean.
