The cleaning sponges are on a spingy pad, which can get stuck because of the old ink get a bit gunky. This can cause error 5101. Try this... Open the bonnet, use a torch, gently tug the ink carriage to the left of the rails. Clear any paper jammed in the right of the ink carriage. Lightly press the cleaning sponges down, (I used a long pen) Restart the printer.
Hello, your problem is easy to solve. Press and hold Resume button for at least 10 seconds, if that dose not work press and hold the OK button for at least 10 seconds. This procedure will bypass the ink level detector and will continue to print as before.
The U043 error code indicates that an ink tank is not installed. One or more ink tank icons on the LCD should also be lit up. The lit up icon indicates the applicable ink tank. Verify these tanks are indeed fully seated in the print head and that they are lit up red.

I have this Canon MP600 using unchipped cartridges. Once you have changed the chip over onto the catridge and inseted it should stop flashing which indicates the cartridge is located. The printer will not tell you the level of ink until you run out. When changing the chip over from original cartridge onto unchipped ensure it is not damaged and fitting properly other wise the error sign will show.The printer should print without any problems, i know you can not disable the ink monitoring system. Hope this is some help Mr T
The remaining ink level cannot be correctly detected. Replace the ink tank and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover). Printing with an ink tank that was once empty may damage the machine. If you want to continue printing in this condition, you need to release the function for detecting the remaining ink level. Press and hold the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds, and then release it. * With this operation, releasing the function for detecting the remaining ink level is memorized. Please be advised that Canon shall not be liable for any machine malfunction or damage caused by refilled ink tanks. See “Replacing an Ink Tank” on page 46.
