Sometimes cartridges just go bad. when installing, make sure you don't touch the electrical parts on the bottom edge that goes into printer. it can short them out. try a new yellow cartridge.

Keep getting error msg ink tank cannot be recognized after I replaced all ink cart


Hi

try removing/replacing all cartridges again - ONE AT A TIME. If that doesn't work, open the printer again and check which cartridge LED is not on. Replace the 'LED off' cartridge with a new one.

good luck

Error code U150 on Pixma MP830


U150 error is ink tank not recognized, it happens alot on the y cartridge. i would advise you to get a version 3 cartridge. on the back of the cartridge if you hold it in the right light you will see a code like 2AHU 3FGH, this tells us its a version 2, i would maybe buy a version 3 or 5 with a updated chip, this will work fr you, if the fault is still there then the 4 contacts in the carriage unit that reads the cartridges is prob bent or broken!

hope this helps

Getting ink cart error message U150


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.

This works!

U150 error on MP600 Canon printer


Canon should offer a product recall on all printers affected by this common U150 problem. I wonder though if they are even aware of it, or care. There are no forums (as far as I can see) on the Canon web site. Maybe they're clueless, and that's bad. Maybe they're NOT clueless and don't care, and that's bad too.
