Canon MP460 cartridge error

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

    You have got to be kidding me that you answered
    that quickly. I never thought about it, but I was
    getting the replacements at Cartridge World or
    World O' Cartridges or something. They are
    refilling and packaging these refurbs. I'll take
    them back and buy the real mccoy. And OK maybe
    two pots of coffee is too much. THX-JH

"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!

reguards,

My canon printer pima MP460 is displaying error message U051 and is not recognising the cartridge.What can be done to fix it?


The cartridge may not be installed properly, so try to remove and put it back again. if this does not work, replace it with new cartridge because maybe the one you are using is damaged. hope this helps. Good day!

Canon MP460 ink cartridge not recognised


Perhaps the chips in the cartridges have failed? In which case you may need to replace them with brand new cartridges. If that doesn't work you might need to send it for repair as the cartridges might have damaged your machine.

Canon pixma mp460 all in one printer will not recognise ink cartr


You need to check that the canon label on top of the cartridge is near to the to the two lugs, there should be only a tiny gap. The label should not be placed at the bottom near the curved lug. If it is not in the right place I think it covers the chip that talks with the printer and thus sends an error message.

Check the labels are near the top straight lugs and not near the curved lug and there is nothing covering the indent near the curved lug. If they are to low down it will block the signal from the chip to printer.

Canon MP530 U052 Error


The dreaded U052 error means that the 'chip' fitted to the Cartridge is not responding .. Canon (like all printer mfgs) makes all it's profit from selling Ink .. so they fit these chips to try to prevent you refilling or using a 'compatible' replacement cartridge

You have to move the chip from the Canon cartridge to the 'compatible' and (it seems) the chips are particularly sensitive to static / damage .. many people end up blowing the chips during the swap over .. or even when fitting the original genuine cartridges to a brand new unit for the first time ...

If the unit is brand new, take it back and demand a replacement ... if you have just swapped over the chip onto a compatible cartridge, you can try buying a genuine Canon cartridge (which will have a new chip) = hopefully that will do the trick

NB. I have seen some suggestions that canon's have a 'Service Mode' that allows you to disable the cartridge chip checking and allow you to print no matter what .. however I've never found any details ... perhaps some-one else has the details ??

Error message UO51


Are you using official Cannon cartridges or "ink refill" cartridges? Did you reset your ink levels in the software?
