When the message appears, hold the reset button for about 5 seconds, this disables ink monitor on most canon models

Error u051 color-canon mp 170


Hi,

This error usually occurs when you are using a refilled ink cartridge.

If this is the case then try using a new genuine canon ink cartridge.

Please rate my answer if this helps or reply if you need more help.

Kind regards,

Chris

I put in a new colour cartrige and I now get the message, 'check ink U051' any suggestions?


Make certain that you removed the tab covering the ink ports. This is usually the problem when the printer cannot locate a new ink cartridge. If that is not the problem, let me know and I will research you error message.

Canon MP180 Ink Problem


lads ye're all I work in an 'ink place' and the u051 fault is a fault indicating that the offending cartridge is electrically dead, this is caused by the clever little program in the canon machine that writes info to the cartridge to make it'dead' so it cant be re-used ! possible solution is to get refilled before printer thinks it empty !!
