Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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."
ON THE CHIPS, TRY CLEANING THEM WITH ALCOHOL (70%)
SOME BRANDS YOU CAN SHAKE THE CARTRDGES TO RESET THE INK COUNTER
