Hold down the Stop/Reset button for 5 seconds or so - should start working now - although this stops the low ink warnings from then on

SOURCE: Error messages: U150 + Ink tank errors have occured

An on-line problem solver answered this question for me as follows, and it worked beautifully. I had previously tried just removing the ink cartridges, and then re inserting them, but that did not work.

"This is a somewhat common problem with the metal contacts that connect to the ink cartridge. Sometimes it can be fixed by cleaning the contacts, but other times it requires getting a new ink holder from Canon customer service.
To clean the contacts, you'll need a Q-tip and some isopropyl alcohol (it's important that it is isopropyl and not another kind of alcohol). Pull out the ink cartridges and clean the contacts on each one with the Q-tip dipped in alcohol. In particular, you want to make sure there are no fingerprints on the contacts. Then, turn off your printer and do the same with the contacts in the ink holder in the printer. Once the alcohol has dried on both sides, reinstall the cartridges and give it a try.
If this doesn't work, I recommend calling Canon tech support, so they can send you a replacement part."

According to Canon's instruction manual, you must complete the cleaning in less than 10 minutes. It took me about five. I did exactly the tech suggested, and after turning everything off and waiting a minute or so, I restarted everything, and the problem was solved.
You must be careful though, because if you leave a Canon Pi6600 cartridge out of the printer for more than 10 minutes, not only will the cartridge tray move back to the "off" position (out of reach), but the ink cartridges nossles will dry out and possibly not work. Also, do not "squeeze" the ink cartridges or you will get ink on yourself.

Try printing the Nozzle Check pattern. Check if colors are printed correctly. If not, try Printhead Cleaning A first then check again the Nozzle Pattern. If there's a small changes to the pattern, try Printhead Cleaning B. If problem persist, try changing the Printhead.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Print out blank page

Hello there.

What is the status of your ink cartridges? Are they empty? Has it been used recently or has it been turned off for long time?

All I can suspect from this little info you have given is the ink cartridges. Either they have become bad, or empty, which need to be replaced, or they didn't get inserted into the printer properly.

Thank you.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Tank absorber full and lights blinking

The POWER Lamp Flashes Orange Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.

Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible.

What does Waste ink near full mean

When the printer cleans the print heads it draws ink and disposes it to a foam collector in the base of the printer. Frequent cleaning via software causes this to to become saturated. To my knowledge it cannot be emptied or replaced easily and it is essentially the end of the printers life when full because the excess ink has nowhere to go and cakes on the print head. You can confirm with Canon or check the manual for replacement instructions.
