Printer is asking for new ink cartridge - which

There should be a reset ink counter in the printers properties. There also shouldve been a message on the lcd about the new cartridges installed. If you didnt answer those questions and just continued with the printing you will get the error messages that your getting. The error should go away once you go into the properties and reset it.

Best of luck..

How to install new cartridge

Make sure the printer is on and not printing. Have a new cartridge handy, as this installation should be done in one session.

Note if the "cartridge is low" or the "cartridge is empty" light is activated on the printer and follow the specific instructions carefully in the document below for each situation.

See "Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges" in the following document:

Printer set up

you need to refer to the part in your instruction manual on installing printer cartridges. the computer/printer does not or will not print as the cartridge needs to be setup first ie the amount of ink and a general printer head test. if you don't have the manual check this site out and download it, at the top on the right hand side type in pixma mp150, then enter on the next page chose operating system and then language, then submit, go right to the bottom and chose printer user guide, then on the next page under manual click on the .exe file and it will download. Open this from your desktop. I have looked at it and it seems as if you need to do it from your software within windows - check ink level is found under the heading routine maintenance. Hope this solves the problem!
