Re: Where are the ink tanks on the Canon MP810?
If you turn the printer on and then lift up the entire top portion of the printer, the ink tanks will move back and forth twice then come to a complete stop in the center of the unit so the ink tanks can be changed or checked. Make sure you do not reach into machine while the unit is moving...
When I say lift the entire top portion of printer I mean the whole top not just the lid where the glass is located.
I hope this helps you out. Let us know.

Brand new cartridge or refilled one? If refilled cartridge, just wait for 30 minutes after refilling and use good quality of ink. It's caused by bad ink flow. While ink spray (bubbling) form head, ink at ink tank not flow to head.
I just replaced my MP810 printer head. Procedure: open printer - remove ink cartridges - Pick up arm located on right side of cartridge holder- remove printer head by picking up by the cartridge slots. Place new printer head in holder - replace printer cartridges - press arm down and your done....However, the error message stays on and reset procedure doesn't remove it. Canon tech support said their solution (because of distance from canon support) is to replace MP810 with comparable printer, which came to $299 with 15% discount and free shipping. My solution, I’m checking out other printers.
Follow these steps: start off removing the ink tank holder (held in place by the grey lever) and cleaning it with an alcohol solution and paper towel. When the ink tanks are not in use they slide to the right side and rest on a pad that collects excess ink. Mine was loaded up and gel like so I cleaned it as well. With the ink tank removed place your MP600 upside down on the table with a towel underneath to protect the lid, then gave it a few good hits on either side of the lower paper tray.
There was plenty of ink left in my Cyan tank but just replacing it with a new Canon CLI-8C one, as suggested by techguru005, did the job. I suppose that the chip must have been faulty? Let's see how long this one lasts! Thanks, techguru005, it's fixed for now.
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.
