SOURCE: canon pixma mp 110 - saying 'put in cartridge'

The print heads on this printer are integrated to the cartridges. I would check the inside of the cartridge caddy, and make sure that all of the gold contact pins are exposed, not looking damaged, and that there are no tears on the film it is connected with. If you notice anything shady with that film, you want to do an RMA (Return to Merchant Authorization) so you can get a replacement,

Canon offers a 1 year upgrade warranty with all of its printers, which very few people use or pay attention to. This means that if you did not void this warranty by using remanufactured cartridges or freaked out the chips on genuine ones by refilling past 1200 prints, you will actually get the newest model (currently the Canon MP140)

SOURCE: Error U043 - Ink Tank Cannot be recognized

Try to open and close the main cover a bit, ... ink recognition will start and may solve the probleme ...
... otherwise remove the cartridge and clean the chip contacts e.g. with spirit
Maybe also pressing the stop/reset-button for >10s will also help to continue printing, but in this case the fill level of the cartridge will no longer be shown

SOURCE: MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043

Same problem - two solutions I found helped me work out mine. One said contacts needed to be cleaned and it worked to use a Q-tip and alcohol or just click it in position several times until it recognizes the cartridge - this may work. Another said that they got it to work by installing a brand new cartridge - cool, but I have one full of ink it won't recognize. So I pulled the little circuit board off a used cartridge (like you need to do with some refills) and put it on the cartridge that it wouldn't recogrnize - works great. Still haven't figured out how to get it to acknowledge ink levels though. Canon really should be more consumer friendly since these problems seem to be intended to compel the use of proprietary cartridges.

Canon mp 530 error u043 cant get rid of it


It is registering a empty ink cartridge. If you had the cartridge refilled instea of replacing the cartridge that is what happened. The chip on the cartridge wont register the refilled ink and tells the printer it is empty.

U043


The U043 error code indicates that an ink tank is not installed. One or more ink tank icons on the LCD should also be lit up. The lit up icon indicates the applicable ink tank. Verify these tanks are indeed fully seated in the print head and that they are lit up red.

You can also press the OK button to clear this message and continue.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


I have a canon mp510 pixma same message U043 and a u150 fault.
I cant see any chip to replace and have replaced my original cartridges with a non branded cheaper type, this might be why. Does this make a difference or is this the same problem occurring with replacement canon cartridges as well.

Dont want to buy genuine ones if its not going to make any difference.

Anyone who can help me would be appreciated

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


I had the u043 problem on the blue cartridge on my mp830.

I was using non-original replacement inks but re-using the chips from the originals - replacing the blue cartridge would cause it randomly work but i then noticed the chip holder was not centred so I realigned it and hey presto! the problem was solved first time.
