This error means the printer in need of service from the manufacturer. You will have to check your warranty and decide if it is worth fixing if it is out of warranty.

I hope this helps. I wish I had better news for you.

How can I work with fax and scaner when I get u051 error printer I don't need the printer


U051 indicates an ink cartridge that cannot be recognised by the printer. Sadly you cannot use your printer while this error remains.

I would advise the following:
-Remove the problem cartridge from the printer
-Wipe the gold contacts on the front of the cartridge with a piece of non fibrous tissue (like kitchen tissue).
-Re-install the cartridge.

If the error remains it is likely that there is a genuine problem with the cartridge. So I would advise re-installing whichever cartridge you had in the printer before the error began to show or purchasing a new ink cartridge.

On my canon MX 310 printer I put in new Canon CL-41 Fine color cartridge and now the alarm light is lit and the screen says Check Ink U051 COL How can I correcty the problem?


You may need a new cartridge, that error says the ink cartridge is wrong or not installed properly. If it's a refilled cartridge it won't work, if it's a new canon cartridge, they warranty for 30 days from date of purchase.
