Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
This is a new printer, and the original cartridge was going out. I bought the replacements, and got the UO51 Cartridge cannot be recognized message. OK I went and got two more cartridges- same thing. This is basically a new printer, and I'm ready to smash it into a thousand pieces, drive over it repeatedly with my car, and buy a different brand. I tried every conceivable cleaning, alignment, restart, etc. Please talk me off the ledge- THX
"Verify that you are using Canon(TM) cartridges. The technology has progressed to where they have modified the ink to be identified by their printers. You cannot currently use refill cartridge inks to refill Canon cartridges. If that is not your issue, then try removing and replacing the cartridge(s)and reset the ink level indicator.
Lets hope for the best!
Honestly.. There is absolutely no way for Those Canon printers to "look inside" or "Detect" the formulation of ink inside the cartridge...
Canon CL-31, CL-41, CL-51, CL-52 Print cartridges have the highest electronic _Failure_ rate of anything other inkjet cartridge on the market. Canon is aware of this. Replacing the Cartridge is the only sure-fire way of fixing this.
*sometimes the printer will tell you its the color cartridge, when in fact its the black cartridge. its advised to replace them both during these error messages.. it'll save you a trip, and the customer service rep's head. haha"
Using an Aftermarket or "re-filled" canon original cartridge is a sustainable resource for anyone looking to re-use an end-user item, and save money in this "tied-selling" market.
I proved you wrong by replacing my inkjets with Oringinal Canon PG-40 black, and CL-41 color cartridge. I ran them until they were empty. Bypassed the Ink Metering System explained to me through the canon software provided during the printer installation, and continued to print with them until they were 110% bone dry empty, laying absolutely no ink on the page. this took approx. 3 hours from perfect start, to finish.
If "canon printers have progressed so much as to distinguish formulations of ink" then.. this canon sure was the PICK of the litter. it continued to print *** as the day it was purchased, while not laying a single droplet of ink on the page.
get a life. stop dissing the aftermarket with your un-supported facts!
