U150 error on canon mx885

Solution 1:
  • Open the paper output tray.
  • Turn on the printer and open the scanning unit. The printer cartridge carriage will move to the center. Open the inner cover securing the cartridge in place by pulling it downward.
  • Press the tab on the problematic ink cartridge and lift it to remove it from the printer. You will be able to tell which ink cartridge is causing the problem because its indicator light will be off or flashing.
  • Open the replacement ink cartridge and pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove the protective film. Tear the orange tape off along the dotted line.
  • Place the ink cartridges into the printer and press where indicated on the cartridge until it clicks into place. Ensure that all ink cartridges have a red indicator light showing that they are properly installed.
  • Close the inner cover on the cartridge carriage and the scanning unit. The printer will automatically start a print head cleaning cycle. When the cleaning cycle is complete, the printer is ready to use.
Solution 2:
  • Put the little green circuit board from the old ink cartridge of the same color in the new cartridge.

Red light under ink cartridge

The flashing light could indicate either a communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer, a short in one of the cartridges, paper jam or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Make sure there are no foreign objects or debris in the feeder.
  2. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges.
  3. While the cover is open, ensure there are no paper jams and the cartridge carrier is free from obstructions.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.
  7. Close the printer cover and check the light status.
  8. If light on printer is normal, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Check the light status.
  9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the light to flash with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
  10. Load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Orange light flashing printer not printing

On an HP the flashing orange indicates trouble, be it the printer has just plain gone bad to almost anything else, I would try re-seating the ink cartridges, check for paper jams, or any sounds out of the ordinary when you turn it on, as I need some clarification to give you a more specific answer.

Check the back of the printer for a reset button, most 5000 series have them, it will allow you to hard reset the printer which may just do the trick, if not, turn the printer on and pull the power while it is on, wait 60 seconds, plug it in and turn it back on.

There is a good chance that a critical component in the printer has given up its ghost, so be prepared for the worst but hope for the best, give some of those options a try and get back to me, at which point I can help you narrow down what is ailing your printer.

I replaced my black cartridge and now my ink/paper light remains lit and when i press it, after a few noises, the green power light begins to blink. i have recently replaced the color cartridge as well.

It is important for you to post the make of your printer. Anyway, it sounds like your new cartridge is faulty, which is not unusual. First of all, turn your machine off, unplug it, wait a minute, then plug it in and turn it on. If the problem is still there, try another new cartridge. If the problem goes away, get a refund for the one you just replaced.

Colour ink cartridge empty but the on off light and red ink light flashes alternately and the carriage will not move to allow access to remove the empty cartridge.

hello, are you sure its not the error light that is blinking alternately with the power light, or is ink light indicator blinking , and just the power light blinking. i would first problably pull the power cord. then plug back in, and try again. the alternating error light and power light would be inkjet service, maint or waste pads are full, as far as the other error, i looked it up, and that error not coming up, unless there is something else going on. maybe cover for ink cartridge is caught, and not allowing printer to cycle.

Paper Jam


You need to try clearing the paper using a airblower if you do not have a air blower try with a vacuum cleaner, surely it cleans up. Unless until you remove the paper it shows the msg.

If you think you have no other option and you tried everything its better to call some service guy and get it done.
