Canon Pixma MP500 UO71 error

My printer was working fine before I moved, but when I re plugged it in (not having changed any of the cartridges) it came up with error UO71 "more than on eink tank of the following color is installed".

    everything i try is a temporary solution, and now nothing works...
    i guess i need to buy a new ink cartridge....
    i'll be sending the bad one back, what a pain....

    It says that I have 2 black inks installed. I don't. It will forget every once in a while for one printing. I have tried taking the cartridges out, turning it on and off again, unplugging it and nothing seems to work now.



    frusterating!

Error code U071 is a faulty cartridge - it should be flashing in error state. Just buy a new one and all should be sweet then send your faulty one with a small description of error to Canon Consumer Returns with a return address & contact number and they will send you out a new one.

I am also getting this error message. For a few days I could take out the offending cartridge and the printer would forget for one printing and then go back to telling me that two of the same cartridges were installed. HELP! I am about to chuck it out the window, though I believe CANON should send us all new ones.

Error 306 can't get printer to work with my mac. It was working just fine until I changed the cartridges and now it gives me an error 306


Error 306 is a communication error and should have nothing to do with the cartridge. Check to make sure the printer is plugged in and restart your computer, and try again.

Canon MP500 error message


If you're using Canon OEM (branded) cartridges you're going to need to ID the problem chip/cartridge so I'd try and get hold of some empty originals from somewhere (CartridgeWorld or similar perhaps?) and put those in as replacements for one cartridge at a time until you ID the problem cartridge/chip

If they're non-branded then chances are you do have more than one of the same chip but the solution is much the same...


If all else fails, take the printer to a friendly retailer who sell Canons and ask them to help you ID the problem cartridge.

Have a error message left cartridge incorrect


Hey!

Are you using Jet Tec ML32 Cartridge re-manufactured cartridges or genuine Lexmark Cartridge?

If it is the Jet Tec cartridge then it is known to be faulty - purchase a Lexmark cardridge and you should be fine.

If it is the Lexmark Cardridge then I would recommend taking all of the cartridges out, turning the printer off (from the power), turning it back on, inserting the cartridges again and checking if it works.

If none of the solutions work, then your cartridge is damaged and should be replaced.

Cheers,

Had the same error after replacing my black ink om my MP830.(UO71) I Put some Methylated Spirits on a cotton tip and gently cleaned the cartridge chip (allow it to air dry). This fixed my problem!
