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".

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.

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.
