    I have the same problem with the magenta ink tank. When I switch the printer on, 'U150....the following ink tank cannot be recognised' comes up. I switched it on and off a few times recently which made it work, but this no longer works. I can't print at all now.

    Same error , U150 on yellow cartridge

  • ashislink Feb 15, 2008

    I did the same but after i got the new inks i still get the same problem. and canon wouldn't take it back since it was over a year left. good  thing i got the extended warranty from best buy because they took it back and said that this is happening allot. does anyone know of a good canon printer that doesn't have this issue.

    Same problem, put a bit of sellotape on the base of the ink cartridge and it is now recognising it.

    Same error with the yellow cartridge. The "tape solution" didn't work for me. This is the second yellow cartridge I've tried (Canon brand, no no-name). What now?

    I tried to call, but if your printer isn't new (mine is nine months old), Canon will charge you a $9.95 service-call fee. Guess I'll try the masking tape.

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.

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!

I needed to use the fax function so I bought a new Cyan ink. Then I call Canon and got one sent after. I had used only about 50 times on this new machine and mostly for faxing. This model Mx700 has a problem with the circuit board on their inks. Or they are set up to fail after about a year of service causing us to spend lots of money on ink!

I also had the "the following ink tank cannot be recognized" error on my Canon MP600. I did as the guest poster above said, and Canon is sending out a replacement ink tank immediately. Thanks for the useful site, and good job on this one Canon.

I am going to call and try. They are closed right now.

Posted on Nov 19, 2007

Okay....I just got off the phone with Canon Tech Support. Call 1-800-385-2155. He will need the serial number (located behind the ink tanks), your name, address, phone number, and the date of purchase. He had me remove all ink cartridges and unplug wire from printer. Then about 45 seconds later replug to see if error corrects itself. It did not. He then said he would send me a new ink tank. When I get the new one, take the old one out and store in a ziploc to use after the new one is out of ink. He also said that the mp600 is the printer that he gets the least amount of calls on. This error occurs when this printer is new. Only a few calls on this and paper jams for this printer. He says it's a good model. So, call him and get you a new ink cartridge!

Error code U150 The following ink tank cannot be recognized


First, make sure you have the right ink cartridges. Here are the right codes: CLI-8BK and PGI-5BK for black, Yellow - CLI-8Y, Magenta - CLI-8M, Cyan - CLI-8C.

If the ink lamp is off then an ink tank error has occurred. Try to remove the ink tank and re-seat it. Make sure you removed the plastic cover on the ink tank. If nothing helped, you need to replace the faulty ink tank.

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.

U150 error message


There was plenty of ink left in my Cyan tank but just replacing it with a new Canon CLI-8C one, as suggested by techguru005, did the job. I suppose that the chip must have been faulty?
Let's see how long this one lasts!
Thanks, techguru005, it's fixed for now.

Error code: U150 The following ink tank cannon be recognized (Cyan)


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!

Hey- i just wanted to say that I had the same problem with my MP600. Unlike some people, I have a problem buying ripoff cartridges from a store. I use my printer alot and I simply refill these. You can buy any refill kit and especially with these cartridges, drill a hole near the top and just fill it and plug it. The sponge sucks it up and you're all set. As far as the Chip problem-it is a pain in the ass and the **** at Canon probably won't fix it. HOWEVER, if you still want to print and don't mind that your ink counter says that you are empty simply hold the "STOP/RESET" and the "Black" print button together until it clears and you'll be set. I do it all the time and I know it works on the later MPs. Check it out and stick it to the man

Cyan ink tank not recognised


I phoned Canon Tech Support Center this morning. They had me replace the ink tank giving me the U150 error code and are sending me a replacement tank. HOPEFULLY this will solve the problem.

U150 error


Anyone game for a class action against Canon? I've called, E-Mailed, and faxed, all to no avail, not one answer, no return contact whatsoever!!! Please post this info about these piece of **** Canon printers on every website you can and anywhere else you can, the world needs to know what GARBAGE Canon is unloading onto the unsuspecting consumer. Hopefully, it will get Canon's attention and maybe those losers will take notice when their sales drop! What say everyone boycott anything that says Canon on it. Come on Canon, take care of this junk you have ripped us off on. I am even telling people IN the stores who are looking at printers to AVOID Canon completely.
