Question about Canon PIXMA MG5320 All-in-One Printer
Problem U150 the following ink tank cannot be recognized
Posted by Anonymous on
I wish I could add a solution but I can only advise to stay away from these terrible printers. My Canon MG5320 is just barely a year old, barely used, maybe a dozen times and I'm getting an irreconcilable C000 error. "Consult the manual"? Manual advises that it needs to be seen by a tech. Same thing, can't get the cartridge tank to move to center to access the inks. It's called a built in "f-u" by Canon.

U150 ink error fixed!
I too was getting the error for unrecognized ink cartridge. Then the little green circ board fell out of the end of the ink cartridge and it hit me that maybe if I put in the little green circ board from the old ink cartridge of the same color, then maybe the ink cartridge would be recognized. It worked! So don't throw out an ink cartridge that still has ink just because of that error and hold onto your empty cartridges in case you need the little green/gold circ boards.

U150 is a 'faulty electronic chip on the tank' error. If you installed a new Canon OEM tank then probably the chip on the new tank is bad.. Take that tank back for a replacement.. If you installed a Clone(non-OEM) tank, then that one will only work if you retrieve a chip from a known good OEM tank and glue it on to it. Clone(non-OEM) tanks all come without chips.

SOURCE: u150 error?
This problem has been pissing me off for quite some time. My printer is
brand new and rarely used. And the comments I've read about Canon
reaction to this engineering problem has left me mystified. I will
never buy another canon printer.
So ... with that said. I must add that after 3 tries at experimenting with the masking tape fix, I have finally found it to work! ... I tried several combinations of taping, with no success. What finally worked was adding 3 layers of standard electrical tape to the left and right sides at the bottom of the cartridge. Do not wrap it around the front or back, only along the sides. This is what i finally got to work. Good luck ... and boo to Canon for this one.
