You need to run the clean print head from the software utility or from the printer menu. you may need to run it a few times until the test pages looks good

this is common on ink jet printers, the nozzles may get clogged

After replacing cyan, magenta and yellow toners with genuine Canon toners, my Canon MFC 8180c does only use yellow color to print while trying to print or copy color stuff.


You will need to do an ink reset because from what you have explained the machine has only recognised one of the coloured inks and the black.

1. Switch on the machine and set it up for removal of all the ink cartridges . Then fully remove each of them (including the black) and then replace them back in the correct slots. Make sure they are fully home when you fit them. The machine now thinks you have removed used cartridges and replaced them with new ones.


2. Then close the printer and follow the instructions on the display window on the printer to indicate to the machine that you have replaced each ink tank with a new one.. It will ask in order if you have replaced each of the ink tanks from black onwards and the answer has to be yes. Make sure you hit the correct buttons when responding because if you do not the printer will not recognise the presence of that particular ink cartridge (and will not use it) which I believe is part of the problem you have now.. Check your user manual to make sure you are pressing the all the correct keys for your model machine.

Hope this helps some.

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.

If you would like to vote for the answer, this will help the others to see the similar problems solved and also will be a satisfaction factor for me to continue helping you.
All the best.
