U150 error on canon mx885


Solution 1:
  • Open the paper output tray.
  • Turn on the printer and open the scanning unit. The printer cartridge carriage will move to the center. Open the inner cover securing the cartridge in place by pulling it downward.
  • Press the tab on the problematic ink cartridge and lift it to remove it from the printer. You will be able to tell which ink cartridge is causing the problem because its indicator light will be off or flashing.
  • Open the replacement ink cartridge and pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove the protective film. Tear the orange tape off along the dotted line.
  • Place the ink cartridges into the printer and press where indicated on the cartridge until it clicks into place. Ensure that all ink cartridges have a red indicator light showing that they are properly installed.
  • Close the inner cover on the cartridge carriage and the scanning unit. The printer will automatically start a print head cleaning cycle. When the cleaning cycle is complete, the printer is ready to use.
Solution 2:
  • Put the little green circuit board from the old ink cartridge of the same color in the new cartridge.

How do i install mt inks


Please follow the steps below on how to install/replace ink cartridges on your model:
  1. Make sure the All-In-One is on.
  2. Lift the scanner unit until the scanner support keeps it open. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the All-In-One is busy.
  3. Grasp the tabs on the cartridge lids, and then lift the lids.
  4. Remove the old cartridges. Store them in an air-tight container or dispose of them.
  5. If you are installing new cartridges, remove the stickers and transparent tape from the bottom of the cartridges.
  6. Insert the new cartridges. Make sure the black print cartridge is secure in the right carrier and the color cartridge is secure in the left carrier, and then snap the lids closed.
  7. Lift the scanner unit and push the scanner support back while lowering the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:


1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

Changing ink instructions canon MP240


With the printer on, open the paper output tray. Then lift up the scanner unit (with the document cover closed). Make sure the support is holding the scanner unit. Then wait until the cartridges move to the replacement area. Pinch the tabs together to open the cartridge locking cover (it just rotates up). Then remove the cartridge by pulling it towards you. Prepare the new cartridge - remove it from the box and remove the orange tape. Do not touch the electrical contacts or the print nozzles.

Slide the new cartridge into the cartridge slot (color on the left). Then close the locking cover - it should click into place. Make sure the cover is correctly closed. Lift the scanner unit to disengage the support and lower the scanner to close it. Wait for the printer to clean the new print heads before sending a new job to the printer. (It will finish printing a job that was in progress when the ink ran out.)

Note: if the scanner unit is open for too long, the cartridges will move to their home position. Close the scanner unit and reopen it.

You can find pictures of the procedure at Canon's support site: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp240#ServiceAndSupport . Searach for replace ink cartridge. Altternatively, go to the Brochures and Manuals page and see the manual.

I hope this helps.

Caution: Do Not move the print head by hand; this may damage the printer, always press the ink
button to move it.
4. Press the " ink " button again

cartridge replacement position.

6. Squeeze the tab at the back of the empty/low cartridge and lift it straight out.

from the package.

    Do not touch the green chip
    on the side of the cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge.

    Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink cartridge.

    3400723.jpg
    You must remove the yellow tape from the cartridge before installing it; otherwise, print quality may decline or you may not be able to print.

    If you have installed an ink cartridge without removing the yellow tape, take the cartridge out of the product remove the yellow tape, and then reinstall it.

    Do not remove the transparent seal from the bottom of the cartridge or the label on the cartridge; otherwise the cartridge may become unusable or ink will leak.

    Place the ink cartridge into the cartridge holder with the bottom down. Then push down the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.
    38585f1.jpg
    Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each ink cartridge.


  • Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place
  • 5ee2013.jpg
      If you find it difficult to close the cartridge cover, make sure all the cartridges are firmly seated. Press down on each cartridge until you hear it click into place. Do not attempt to force the cover closed.

    1. Close the printer cover and press the ink or start button to begin charging the system. Charging can take up to three minutes and is complete when the power light stops flashing.
    While the ink system is charging do not switch off the printer.
