U150 error on MP600 Canon printer

Re MP600: What is the best way to deal with a U150 error on my yellow tank? it is about one third full on first cartridge. I recently replaced the black ink cartridge with a proper Canon PG1 5BK. Should I buy a new yellow cartridge or return the printer to the shop as unusable? If so, what would you recommend as a replacement?

    I have the exact same problem! A few weeks ago I had to replace a half full blue cartdrige, and that solved the problem. But that is hardly a good solution in the long run. Any ideas?

    I get the U150 error on the black ink tank which still is about half full.

    Very frustrating. Users beware!

    I've had the same problem with my 1 1/2 year old MP600 printer. I was on the line with the customer service rep solving ANOTHER problem, mentioned this problem, and he said basically because it was over the year warranty period there was nothing they could do. I told him I would flame Canon online, and he said go ahead. So, here it is. Don't buy Canon products!

I worked for a reputable refill shop and we have had a lot of troubles with the canon cli 8, especially yellows. They definately have faults. Canon will replace the particular ink cartridge for you or you can return it to the place of purchase and they will send it away and reimburse you. OR get Cartridge World to refill your cli 8's, as they will generally notice if the cartridge is no good when they reset the chip ( The chips are resettable these days.) You will find you will go home with more peace of mind then if you had a genuine.

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.

This works!

Canon should offer a product recall on all printers affected by this common U150 problem. I wonder though if they are even aware of it, or care. There are no forums (as far as I can see) on the Canon web site. Maybe they're clueless, and that's bad. Maybe they're NOT clueless and don't care, and that's bad too.

I keep getting the error code U150 on my canon mp600....the ink is full??? it says the ink tank cannot be recognized on the black 8 and the red light is NOT on?????


Hello,
your problem is easy to solve.
Press and hold Resume button for at least 10 seconds, if that dose not work press and hold the OK button for at least 10 seconds. This procedure will bypass the ink level detector and will continue to print as before.

Error code U150 The following ink tank cannot be recognized


First, make sure you have the right ink cartridges. Here are the right codes: CLI-8BK and PGI-5BK for black, Yellow - CLI-8Y, Magenta - CLI-8M, Cyan - CLI-8C.

If the ink lamp is off then an ink tank error has occurred. Try to remove the ink tank and re-seat it. Make sure you removed the plastic cover on the ink tank. If nothing helped, you need to replace the faulty ink tank.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


I had the same problem. My mp630 is also only 4 months old. I replaced all colour ink cartrdiges(inc black), but was only able to release the function for detecting the ink levels for magenta and cyan. Yellow and black then started giving error message U043, with them alternating between working, but never working at the same time. Getting them all clicked in with the lights glowing red does not solve the problem, as once the printer cover is closed, the same error message turns up. The only thing that worked for me is moving the chip slightly out of alignment, by pushing the sliding chip holder, and I only had to do this twice before they all started working and the printer was unlocked.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


Same problem - two solutions I found helped me work out mine. One said contacts needed to be cleaned and it worked to use a Q-tip and alcohol or just click it in position several times until it recognizes the cartridge - this may work. Another said that they got it to work by installing a brand new cartridge - cool, but I have one full of ink it won't recognize. So I pulled the little circuit board off a used cartridge (like you need to do with some refills) and put it on the cartridge that it wouldn't recogrnize - works great. Still haven't figured out how to get it to acknowledge ink levels though. Canon really should be more consumer friendly since these problems seem to be intended to compel the use of proprietary cartridges.

U150 error?


My dad is having this same problem and has been for the last 5 months. It's not from the printer being new it's a defect in the engineering of the printer cartridge older. The yellow cartridge (being the middle) doesn't snugly fit and so it wiggles around losing it's connection with the printer. I fixed this by taking making tape and taping around the base of the cartridge. It's a tight fit and it doesn't disconnect itself ever. Hope this helps!
