I have been repairing Canon inkjet printers for over 20 years. The manufacturers do not make money on the printer. They make it on the ink. No that's not correct. I should have said "they make it on their dye". That's is what is in the genuine cartridge. Your refilled ones are filled with ink which is often watered down to get it to come out of a syringe. It will splash about and ruin your printer. If you print a photo it will look awful and probably be fuzzy. If you shop around you can find the genuine cartridges at just a little more than refills.

SOURCE: U150 Canon no cartridge recognised

Because these a refills inks the Chip things they are full so you must replace the cartridge with a new Canon one and the fault will go. If not just replace the chip with a new one!

Then your error u150 will go.

SOURCE: Ink cartridge cannot be recognised

My solution is not to take the word of cack-handed amateurs like the one who suggested the eraser technique - this is just Canon holding us to ransom by making us buy their overpriced consumables. I would rather there were no fancy electronic monitoring systems - give me the good old days when there was no (expensive, ironically adding to the sky high cost) technique other than to know your print was fading.

SOURCE: refilled cartridge not recognised

dont you hate that when that happend. this is why i do not use refilled carts. The issue here is the ink system has failed because of the refilled cart. the chip that reads the cartridge (printhead) is bad and needs to be replaced.

Ive just filled my ink cartridges but have the following error message when trying to print: (see add details section)


You need to reset the chip in the cartridge that tells the printer when it's low. The part can be found on sites that sell refill kits.

My black ink button on my pixma mp495 printer is blinking. Why?


A B LED light denotes that the black ink cartridge is running low.
A C LED light denotes that the colour ink cartridge is running low.
If the alarm light is on (lightning bolt in a triangle) it should be accompanied by an error code.

The led screen on the printer will flash a letter E and will then be followed by two numbers:

Epson stylus sx200 refuses to acknowledge black ink bought direct from epson


I believe the DX series and the SX use the same system

# Determine which ink cartridges are not recognised.
# With the ink cartridge holder in the ink cartridge replacement position, lift up the ink cartridge holder lid and take the cartridge or cartridges out.
# Check that the cartridge is a genuine Epson ink cartridge - look for the EPSON branding and T0xxx codes on the cartridge labels.
# Check that the cartridges are correct for your Epson product.
# Wipe the green Intellidge Chip on the cartridge that is not recognised.
# Check the chip contacts within the ink cartridge holder for any debris or dried ink and wipe with a lint-free cloth if necessary.
# Check that the plastic at the bottom of the cartridge has been pierced.
# Check that the cartridges are in the correct slots.
# Reinstall the cartridges into the ink cartridge holder in the correct order.
# Push the ink cartridge down firmly. It should click into place.
# Repeat this for any ink cartridges that were removed.
# Push the ink cartridge holder lid down. It should clip into place and be secure.
# Press the Stop button, this will return the ink cartridge holder to the right hand side of the unit.
# If the error light flashes after the print head returns to the home position, the ink cartridge may not be installed properly.
# If the red light is no longer displayed, but Status Monitor still reports a Non-Genuine Ink warning.
# If the red light is still on the printer, and Status Monitor indicates that an ink cartridge is not recognised, follow the steps below.
# If the problem remains, there may be a fault with the ink cartridge.

My Brother MFC-685CW Printer Wireless doesn't recognise a new colour cartridge despite having cleaned the printer head. It also is not recognised by the PC despite reloading it. Help!! Troubleshooter...


If the message "NO CARTRIDGE" remains on the LCD after you have installed the ink cartridge(s), it is possible another ink cartridge is empty and needs to be replaced or one or more of the cartridges are not installed properly. Complete the following steps:
  1. Unplug the machine from the AC power outlet, wait approximately 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

    1a. If the display continues to show NO CARTRIDGE, verify the cartridges are installed properly by uninstalling and reinstalling all four ink cartridges. Follow Steps 2a through 2f.


    1b. If "INK EMPTY XXXXX" (Xs = color, i.e. INK EMPTY CYAN) is displayed on the LCD, the specified ink cartridge is empty and needs to be replaced. Follow Steps 2a through 2f.

  2. To resolve an INK EMPTY message or to confirm the ink cartridges are installed properly, complete the following steps:

    2a. Open the ink cartridge cover. Pull the lock release lever(s) down and take out the ink cartridge(s). While you have the ink cartridge(s) out of the machine, verify the cartridge(s) are genuine Brother supplies with the Brother logo embossed into the side of cartridge.

    2b. Reinstall the ink cartridge(s). Lift and push the lock release lever(s) until it clicks into place and close the ink cartridge cover.



    ink_replace04.gif

    2c. The LCD may then display:

    Did you change xxxxxx? Yes No.

    for the color(s) that was replaced. If this message appears, BE SURE to follow the instructions on the LCD to correctly select Yes or No. Select Yes if you installed a new cartridge(s) to automatically reset the ink dot counter for that color. Select No if you did not install a NEW ink cartridge(s).


    2d. After all the correct selections are made, the machine will then enter a cleaning cycle.


    2e.If the display again shows INK EMPTY XXXX, go back to Step 2 and follow the instructions to install a NEW ink cartridge.


    2f.If the machine did not enter a cleaning cycle and the display continues to show NO CARTRIDGE after reinstalling new genuine Brother ink cartridges, your machine may require service.
If your computer is not recognizing the printer you should uninstall and reload the drivers. You might consider downloading a new driver for your operating system from this site:

Ink carts not recognised


OK, i know this one ;-)

1 take out the cartridge thats not recognised ( 1 or all dont matter)

2 do a ink change with no ink in

3 put ink cartridge(s) back in.... wiggle the cartridge(s) to seat the "chip" right

4 do a ink change again, if not just follow the steps again.

I had to do this 5 times the other day before it picked it up.

It does work
