Hello!
I have the same printer and the only ink cartridges I use are Canons own.
I've tried these cheaper replacement ones and zip nothing will not recognise them.
It is false economy as now I have a full bank of copy ink cartridges that charity will not even accept.
Hope this helps!

    Hi again, As you say standing for a while, Can you get into maintenance and perform a clean? if not then if you a careful remove the cartridges and clean the printed circuit area gently with some quality absorbent paper maybe you'll see results (Excuse pun)
    Good luck!

Ink Monitoring System


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

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


I had the same problem. My mp630 is also only 4 months old. I replaced all colour ink cartrdiges(inc black), but was only able to release the function for detecting the ink levels for magenta and cyan. Yellow and black then started giving error message U043, with them alternating between working, but never working at the same time. Getting them all clicked in with the lights glowing red does not solve the problem, as once the printer cover is closed, the same error message turns up. The only thing that worked for me is moving the chip slightly out of alignment, by pushing the sliding chip holder, and I only had to do this twice before they all started working and the printer was unlocked.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


Same problem - two solutions I found helped me work out mine. One said contacts needed to be cleaned and it worked to use a Q-tip and alcohol or just click it in position several times until it recognizes the cartridge - this may work. Another said that they got it to work by installing a brand new cartridge - cool, but I have one full of ink it won't recognize. So I pulled the little circuit board off a used cartridge (like you need to do with some refills) and put it on the cartridge that it wouldn't recogrnize - works great. Still haven't figured out how to get it to acknowledge ink levels though. Canon really should be more consumer friendly since these problems seem to be intended to compel the use of proprietary cartridges.

PGI5BK Ink tank not recognized on MP600


You say the "original" is 3 months old? You are out of ink. Replace the cartridge. Even when there is still a little ink in the "tank" it reports back to the printer as empty. And yes it will go through all its checks and still show empty. They don't last forever even if you don't use the printer. The ink evaporates out over time.

U150 error?


My dad is having this same problem and has been for the last 5 months. It's not from the printer being new it's a defect in the engineering of the printer cartridge older. The yellow cartridge (being the middle) doesn't snugly fit and so it wiggles around losing it's connection with the printer. I fixed this by taking making tape and taping around the base of the cartridge. It's a tight fit and it doesn't disconnect itself ever. Hope this helps!
