I just changed all the ink cartridges in my printer and an error keeps appearing on the cyan cartridge. The error states "the remaining level of the following ink cannot be correctly detected".....error U130
Can anyone tell me something to do?? Im really sick of paying for more ink cartridges when there is nothing wrong with the ones ive bought, Ive already changed it twice and it keeps giving me the same error.

Re: "ink cannot be correctly detected" error U130
If you have changed the cartridge twice and the error remains, it would suggest the cartridge is not at fault.
Look at the contact where the cartridge inserts into the carriage and make sure they are A) Clean and B) Not bent or distorted
If you are certain the contact between cartridge and carriage is good then it would suggest there may a fault further down the line. This would implicate either the cable running back to the main board or the main board itself.
It would be worth spending a little time to fully investigate the carriage to cartridge contact.

Very simple solution: When the pixma mp620 screen shows error U130, Hold down the stop (red triangle) key for about 7 - 10 seconds. This overrides/turns off the ink monitoring function. The printer will begin "thinking" for a bit and then start printing. Note: you may have to do this seperately for each color. You'll also notice that when the lid is open and the cartridges are in position for changing, the cartridges that used to be "out" are no longer flashing red, nor a stead red. They are dark.
I was changing my cyan cartridge and got this error. I thought for sure it was that cartridge. Tried a few things including pulling them all out and putting them all back in. Didn't work.
Finally, I found a place in the software that showed the info on all the cartridges. Turned out the light cyan was not reading. Took it out and rubbed the contacts with a pencil eraser. Voila! Problem solved.
It would appear that the black ink cartridge is either out of ink or running out soon.Change the cartridge.If your need to print now and don't have a new cartridge try this open the unit pull out the black cartridge shake it and the reinstall it you may get a little more out of it.If this is a new printer the cartridges install are always limited in use,so you'll buy more.If you must print know try changing your font color to dark blue avoiding black.Good luck.
Could have a corrupt driver. Disconnect
the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do
both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer
to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
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.
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.
