Getting error U043 "The following ink tank cannot be recognized. I have the correct tank. Pixma 520 ...tank # 5 PGBK


Hi,

The little chips on the front of the cartridge create a trouble for people trying to refill the cartridge, as of right now, there is no way to easily reset the chips. If you refill them, they still register as empty, and therefore don't work.

If the following tips doesn’t help, you can try to install the original new ink cartridge following the instructions in the user manual. This can solve the problem.
Note :
Be sure to install the ink tanks in the correct order indicated by the label on the Print Head Holder. The machine will not print if an ink tank is installed in the incorrect position.
For information on the compatible ink tanks, refer to the back cover of the Quick Start Guide.
Tips before Replacing Ink Tanks : Important:
- To maintain optimal printing quality, we recommend the use of specified Canon brand ink tanks.
Refilling ink is not recommended.

- Once you remove an ink tank, replace it immediately. Do not leave the machine with ink tanks removed.
- Replace empty tanks with new ones. Inserting partially used ink tanks may cause the nozzles to clog. Furthermore, with such tanks, the machine will not be able to inform you when to replace the tanks properly.
- Once an ink tank has been installed, do not remove it from the machine and leave it out in the open. This will cause the ink tank to dry out, and the machine may not operate properly when it is reinstalled. To maintain optimal printing quality, use an ink tank within six months of first use.
- Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black-and-white document or when black-and-white printing is specified.
Color ink is also consumed in Print Head Cleaning and Print Head Deep Cleaning, which may be necessary to maintain the machine's performance. When an ink tank is out of ink, replace it immediately with a new one.

After replacing ink tank;
Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. After five minutes or more, plug the power cord of the machine back in, and then turn on the machine.

All the best.

Showing Check Ink U051 COL. Have removed the


Hi there

For troubleshooting purposes,
Perform the following:

1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.

2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.

3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank
properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as
they are not currently installed in the printer.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.

5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are
installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if
you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink
tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of
the issue is the last ink tank.



Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Hi there,

Canon ink tank problems


I think I figured this B!tch out.

When you get the error:
"More than one ink tank of the following color is installed" or
"Ink cartridge not recognized"

Open up the lid where the cartridges are and hold done the "SEARCH" button. This has been working for me, and I bought my ip6600d in 2005, so my machine is old, and ready for this..........ORIGINAL INK!!! Never really used it beyond printing very few pics. So I was really pissed when I found these messages to almost 5 years after buying this printer. So to recap, open the lid where the ink cartridges are while holding the "SEARCH" button, hold it up for like 5 to 10 seconds, place lid down still holding the search button, then let go of the search button. I did notice the alarm was lit, but went away after I released the search button. Good Luck!!!

Until I held the search button down I had turned of the printer, reseeded the cartridges and open and closed the lid but it never worked.

Ink cartridge


The message seems to be saying that you have two black cartridges installed and therefore one of the colors is missing. Is that possible?
