Question about Canon PIXMA MP510 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

''The following ink tank cannot be recognised'' MP510

The above is the error message. All inks are full and when I load they all light up as normal, however, when I then close lid, the message appears and the light has gone out.
I assume that it is easy to fix but how?

    Error message- "does not recognise ink tank". After reinserting the inktank it lights up red. But after closing the cover it comes back with the light off and the same error message.

Hi,

Try this to turn off ink level checking.

The Scan cover must be closed completely and locked in place. And the ink cartridge must be firmly locked in place as well.

Press and Hold the Stop/Reset button for 6 full seconds and then release it? Use the one Mississippi method of counting.

This will disable ink level checking. The ink level checking doesn't always work well after a while and you can use this to refill your ink tanks as well.

Refilling ink tanks comes with its own risks and is known to not work well at higher altitudes above sea level. The closer to 4,000ft, roughly, the more likely the ink tank is to leak. And, these tanks can only be refilled about three times before the holes in the bubble jet corrode and are out of round. This will show as text that is not crisp to the eye in appearance.

Regards,
Worldvet

U150 Canon no cartridge recognised


Because these a refills inks the Chip things they are full so you must replace the cartridge with a new Canon one and the fault will go. If not just replace the chip with a new one!

Then your error u150 will go.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


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.

Anyone who can help me would be appreciated

I phoned Canon Tech Support Center this morning. They had me replace the ink tank giving me the U150 error code and are sending me a replacement tank. HOPEFULLY this will solve the problem.
