Cartridge error message U041. Says black ink is

Cartridge error message U041. Says black ink is out but just filled it.

  • maryproctor1 Jul 02, 2009

    Message says Black ink has run out but I just put a new "refilled" cartridge in and it is full. I have used these before and they have always worked. I was wondering if there is some way I can "reset" whatever is causing the message. Pressing down the reset button for 5 seconds doesn't do anything.

    Still blinking when cover is open. I have turned it on and off quite a few times and hit the reset button more. Have taken the cartridges out and back in. Maybe I should dump the iP6600D!!

    Miss Maryproctor1,

    Kindly go through the link. Where have you read this error is "due to black ink".

    Please clarify, so that we can solve the problem.

    Unless , i would appreciate if you can contact Canon or Local tech. It might happen, if you are using the product first time.

    Thanks for using 'Fixya'.

    Hi,

    The meaning of the above error :-

    The ink has run out (The lamp on the ink tank flashes).

    Replace the ink tank, and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).

    If
    printing is in progress and you want to continue printing, press [OK]
    with the ink tank installed. Then printing can continue under the ink
    out condition. Replace the empty ink tank immediately after the
    printing. The machine may be damaged if printing is continued under the
    ink out condition.

    Note

    If multiple ink tank lamps
    are flashing red, check how fast they flash. Fast flashing (at about
    one second interval) indicates the ink is empty. Slow flashing (at
    about three second interval) indicates ink is low. For details on
    different flashing speeds, see Knowing When to Replace Ink Tank.

    Print head is not installed./The type of print head is incorrect.
    Follow the directions given in the Easy Setup Instructions to install the Print Head.

    If the Print Head is already installed, remove the Print Head and reinstall it.

    If this error still remains, the Print Head may be damaged. Contact a Canon service representative.

    Inner cover is open. Close the inner cover and press [OK]./Open the inner cover, place the CD-R tray and press [OK].
    If the Inner Cover is open when starting normal printing, close it before pressing [OK] on the machine.

    If
    the Inner Cover is closed when starting DVD/CD printing, open it with
    the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) closed and set the CD-R Tray before
    pressing [OK] on the machine.

    Do not open or close the Inner Cover when printing. This may damage the machine.

    Some ink tanks are not installed in place.

    Any further help, let me know.

    Hope i helped.

    Thanks for using "Fixya".

Canon MP620 , full ink cartridge reads as " ink has run out" U041


The Canon printer may only use genuine ink cartridges which contain a chip so that you cannot fill the cartridge with ink or use non genuine ink cartridges.

New ink cartridge and still getting error UO41


Error U041 is strictly a low ink error message, so it's strange that replacing the ink would not resolve it. Make sure the ink cartridges are inserted properly and the protective tape has been removed from the cartridge. If not, there might be an issue with the ink cartridges not being locked in place.

Printer wont reconise ink cartrige


Make sure you've removed the protective tape from the cartridges that you inserted into the printer and that the cartridges were installed properly. Are you getting an error message or is the printer just not printing? If you get an error such as Error U041 or U043, the printer may just be low on ink or have a bad ink cartridge.

Installed a black ink cartridge and the printer shows the message 'black cartridge missing' and also says 'cartridge error: error 50c'


Hi there Error 50c

Can only gave it a try.

Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

3) Turn the printer on.
The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
color cartridge.
If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

You may have to buy a new cartrige.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Hp photosmart d7200 erro Oxc18a0001


Filling your cartridge with non-HP ink won't cause an error. There are basically two reasons for ink system failure, The cartridge is no good or the ink system has failed. Some of these machines can be reset. But, try replacing cartridge first.
