Error messages: U150 + Ink tank errors have occured

Hi I have two error messages. 1st on the display screen of my canon IP 6700D which says - U 150 The following ink tank cannot be recognised. 2nd on computer screen running xp - Ink tank errors have occured. Open the printer cover & replace the ink tanks on which ink lamps are off. Cancel printing. ( 5 tank lights off 1 light on solid - should all be blinking) This situation has occurred by my refilling the original ink tanks with quality ink designed for my brand and model of printer. Had disabled ink level indicator as requested by drivers. Have only refilled 3 times on 1 tank and once on other 5 tanks. The problem is the drivers and chips on the canon tanks. Does any one know a way around the drivers and chips to stop these error messages? I spoke to canon support and they say error messages nothing to do with drivers or chips (yeah right). machine faulty but grey area as to canon repairing under warranty. How do ya like that eh????? Their advice - buy our ink! I refill cartridges. Started getting error messages that alternate between colors C and M each time I reset the cartridge. The message is "The remaining level of the following ink cannot be correctly detected."

How to Reset canon mx512 ink cartridge


To reset the Canon 240/241 cartridge low ink level monitoring in order to clear the ink level alarm condition and resume print operations, I suggest you first attempt the basic/universal ink level reset procedures before attempting any of the more advanced procedures provided on the Inkjet411 site*


A. Standard Ink Level Reset Procedure (printers without LCD display):
[ Refer to the 1st support video: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=62 ]
1) At computer screen message, select 'Stop'/'Reset', 'OK', or 'Resume'.
....or....
2) Select 'Stop'/'Reset', 'OK' or the 'Resume' button (triangle-circle icon) on your printer for 5-8 seconds:
- Printing may continue under the 'ink out' condition.

B. Standard Ink Level Reset Procedure (printers with LCD display):
[ Refer to the 2nd support video: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=62 ]
1) Install cartridge and start print job.
2) After first message appears, click 'OK' to continue. Printer should start printing.
3) If second message appears and printer's LCD screen displays error code "E", then DO NOT click 'CANCEL PRINTING'.
4) Press and hold down 'Stop'/'Reset' button (triangle-circle icon) on your printer for 5-8 seconds. Printer should start printing.

If you are able to produce a self test print, this is good since it illustrates that the cartridges are electrically stable...if you observe any 'E' or 'V' error states (i.e. E13 or V162 for example), this may indicate there is possibly an internal electrical problem with one of the ink cartridges. Refer to your user guide if E/V error messages are displayed.

*If, after following the suggested ink monitoring/level reset procedures, you still have an error condition which prohibits regular printing, then the ink cartridge probably has internal electrical damage (micro-electronics failure); such a failure is unrelated to the ink cartridge refilling process. Typically, when the cartridge fails the problem is 'masked' by the ink out/empty condition so it can be difficult to distinguish between the two. Many cartridges eventually do encounter problems or failures, especially after their original ink is gone and they are re-used, and this is often unrelated to the refill process (i.e. typically ~2 years from original manufacturing date). Refer to picture at bottom of this page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1533

NOTE: There are additional 'reset' procedures provided on Inkjet411 (see SUPPORT DOCUMENTATION - CANON RESET METHODS pdf document): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=62

For information on North American ink refill services at a major retailer near you (should you wish to save ~50% on ink costs), general printing problem resolutions or advanced Canon printer diagnosis procedures (advanced cartridge diagnostic tests/cartridge error bypass & printer reset methods, etc.), please visit Inkjet411: http://www.inkjet411.com

Getting the u150 error message too....


Hi ...

Error U150 normally comes in due to the ink tank ... Follow the below steps and I am sure you will be able to resolve this problem ...

I'll also tell you how you can find out what the problem is just by looking at the flashing ligh ...

Replacing An Ink Tank Use the following procedure to replace empty ink tanks or when an ink tank error appears.
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the <Open> button. (The paper output tray will open.)
    mp800_openbutton.gif

  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)

    mp500_scanningunit_open.gif

    NOTE: When the scanning unit (printer cover) is opened more than ten minutes, the print head moves to the right side. If this occurs, close the scanning unit (printer cover), and open it again.

  3. Open the inner cover.

  4. Press the ink tank's tab (1), then remove it from the slot (2).

  5. Unpack the ink tank and pull the orange tape off completely in the direction of the arrow and remove the film.

    Note: Tear the orange tape carefully along the dotted line. If the orange tape remains, printing problems may occur.

    05sj00141_06.jpg


    <4> Tape is completely removed.

    <5> Tape remains. Remove the orange protective cap located on the bottom of the ink tank by twisting as shown in the diagram.

    Caution: Do not touch the ink tank contact <6>. Doing so may cause printing problems. Do not squeeze the side of ink tanks as this may cause the ink to leak out. Do not reattach the protective cap once you have removed it.

  6. Insert ink tanks into the print head.

    Note: Press the mark <PUSH> on the ink tank firmly until you hear a click.

    05sj00141_08_en.gif

  7. Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red.

    05sj00141_09_en.jpg

    <7> The ink tanks are installed properly.

    <8> The ink tanks are not installed properly.

    Note: Click for Ink Tank Lamp indications.

  8. Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).

    Caution: When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam fingers.

    N
    ote: The next printing begins, the print head cleaning will begin automatically.

Ink Tank Lamp indications
You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
  • On: The printer is ready to print.
  • Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
  • Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
  • Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.

This is down to a hardware error in the tank itself. Only remedy is to replace the ink tank and not use refilled or copy tanks.
