    I have "EXACTLY" the same problem (Errors U071 for the yellow cartridge and U140) on my Canon Pixma MP500, which was barely used. Last time it was used for scanning and it stopped working after reboot. I guessed there's no relationship between the cartridges and the scanning function. It just simply stopped working... by itself !!!...

Thanks for checking back my printer problem. Solved the problem--purchased a new printer.My big problem now is repairs on my Mitsubishi WD 52725. I do not think I will buy a new one of those.I will purchase your help package for help with that. Please advise.

Error code U071 , more than one ink tank of te following color is installed, is the message on the screen. This is not the case as each cartridge is different and correctly installed?


Hi there,

Error U071 : More than one ink tank of the following color is installed. U071.
Action : Confirm that the ink tanks are installed in the appropriate positions.
The machine will not print if the wrong type of ink tank is used, or if it is installed in the incorrect position.
Be sure to install the ink tanks in the correct order. The proper arrangement from the left is Black (CLI-8BK), Black (PGI-5BK), Yellow (CLI-8Y), Magenta (CLI-8M), Cyan (CLI-8C).

Hope this hepls.

Error U071 or U140


check in bottom of the ink cartidge u must have to remove plastic strip.then also check u proper fixed ink cartridge in ink tank as matching color.
re-seating the cartridge may temporarily fix the problem but it will not last. but if even that doesnt give u relief.... then its a hardware failure and wud service is required at this point. contact Hp...

thank you for using Fixya...
have a nice day

Error U071


Make sure that the inks are not re-manuafactured ones with chips taken off genuine canon inks. It is possible that the wrong chips could be fitted to the wrong colours.

Alarm light is lit -


Ok my printer is giving me the U140 message saying that ink tank cannot be recognized. The new ink tank is Cannon (not a off brand or refill). i think it is a problem with the chip reader port inside the printer not the ink tank chip. I feel this way because if you switch around the yellow and black 8 tanks, the printer accepts them without error.. soo if it was the ink cartridge i could be able to swap the black with the magenta and it should read it.
