Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
I cannot print (or clean) my printer due to the above message. The Cyan Cartridge used to work fine, and it's still 70 % full. I reinstalled the blue ink cartridge several time, turned the printer off and on, but the same message keeps appearing. When I push the cartridge in, the printer seems to recognize the cartrdige, as the red light turns on, but when I close the printer, the U150 message appears. What can I do? I hope you can help me.
U150 ink error fixed!
I too was getting the error for unrecognized ink cartridge. Then the little green circ board fell out of the end of the ink cartridge and it hit me that maybe if I put in the little green circ board from the old ink cartridge of the same color, then maybe the ink cartridge would be recognized. It worked! So don't throw out an ink cartridge that still has ink just because of that error and hold onto your empty cartridges in case you need the little green/gold circ boards.

The U150 problem is all too common and apparently there is no fix other than replacing the ink tank the error code refers to. I've gone through cartridges in the past 3 months, all of which were original Canon products and were over 50% full. From experience, this U150 error can happen to any ink tank and it completely shuts the printer off from any further use.
Before I bought the printer I read rave reviews about Canon printers. Looks like we all got duped.

The good news: Office Depot replaces "damaged" cartridges. This is my only solution to this problem. At least we'll get our money back. This is certainly an issue, Canon has to solve. Other than that I think this printer is much better than other products in this price range.
