U150 error on canon mx885


Solution 1:
  • Open the paper output tray.
  • Turn on the printer and open the scanning unit. The printer cartridge carriage will move to the center. Open the inner cover securing the cartridge in place by pulling it downward.
  • Press the tab on the problematic ink cartridge and lift it to remove it from the printer. You will be able to tell which ink cartridge is causing the problem because its indicator light will be off or flashing.
  • Open the replacement ink cartridge and pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove the protective film. Tear the orange tape off along the dotted line.
  • Place the ink cartridges into the printer and press where indicated on the cartridge until it clicks into place. Ensure that all ink cartridges have a red indicator light showing that they are properly installed.
  • Close the inner cover on the cartridge carriage and the scanning unit. The printer will automatically start a print head cleaning cycle. When the cleaning cycle is complete, the printer is ready to use.
Solution 2:
  • Put the little green circuit board from the old ink cartridge of the same color in the new cartridge.

I have a canon pixma mp250 printer and i can't find the manual to explain how to replace the black ink cartridge.


To change the ink, make sure that the printer is on (green light is lit). Then lift up the entire scanner unit and latch the support on the right. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move into the ink cartridge replacement position. Open the cartridge cover on the right hand side by pinching the front and the tab on the top together; then lift it upwards. The cover will rotate towards the back of the printer. Pull the empty cartridge back out of the slot. Open your new cartridge and peel off the protective tape. (Do not touch the electrical contacts or the nozzles.) Place the new cartridge in the slot (slide it forward). Then rotate the cartridge cover back down until it clicks. If you do not need to change the color cartridge, lift up on the scanner unit until the support unlocks. Then carefully lower the entire scanner unit to close it (don't pinch your fingers or drop the scanner unit). If the orange Alarm light comes on, check that the cartridges are correctly installed and the cover is in place. Wait until the printer recharges ink system before sending a print job or copying a page.

Canon has the documentation for the MP250 on their site: http://usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/photo_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mp250#BrochuresAndManuals (for the manuals) .

I hope this helps.

Need to install new ink


Lift the entire top including the scanner portion until it clicks to stay open by itself (like some vehicle hoods). You should see the print head containing all the ink. It will slide back and forth for a moment, this is normal. Wait until it comes to a stop. Notice any blinking lights below the ink cartridges. If the light is solid, there is enough ink. If the light is blinking you'll need to replace that cartridge for the best print quality. Remove the ink by carefully but forcefully pushing on the tab with one finger and holding the back of the cartridge with other. It should simply slide out. Note the EXACT #'s on the ink cartridges. Right down all the information and the type of printer you have and take it to your local best buy or equivalent store, they will give you the replacement cartridges you need. Unwrap the package and carefully remove the orange tab on the bottom by twisting in the direction shown. (You may want to wear rubber gloves because the ink stains fingers badly.) Carefully but forcefully slide the new cartridge in place of the old and push down until you hear a click. The light under the cartridge should now be solid. Once all carts have been replaced close the lid of the printer and give it a moment to situate. Run a print head alignment to manually align all nozzles for best printing quality. Simply click the head align software button and follow the instructions, quite easy. You should be all set and ready to print!

How to load new ink into printer Canon Pixma 620B ? Thank you!


Step 1.
Open the hood of your printer; if the ink cartridge holder does not slide into view, check to make sure the printer is turned on.
  • Step 2 Remove any empty cartridges from the ink cartridge holder and dispose of them properly. Some Canon printers have a protective cartridge lid that must be opened before you can change a cartridge.
  • Step 3 Remove all protective tape and plastic film from the fresh cartridge. Canon uses a bright orange protective tape on its ink cartridges. Some Canon ink cartridges also have a bright orange protective cap over the ink nozzle that must be removed before installation.
  • Step 4 Insert the new cartridge into the ink cartridge holder. Tilt the cartridge up slightly and insert end-first into the proper slot; push down gently on the cartridge to lock it into place. Some Canon printers have an indicator light that will activate when the cartridge is firmly installed; other models have a cartridge cover that will lock into place when closed.
  • Step 5 Close the hood of the printer. The printer will indicate when it is ready for use with a message on the LCD screen or by blinking the LED indicator light.

    I refilled the ink cartridges on my Canon iP1700. The print screen says they are low on ink and the orange light blinks four times. I unpluged the printer as directed in my manual. ??? The orange light...


    The refilled ink cartridges do not have the chip which comes charged from the company. It is suggestable if you can spend on the new ink cartridges, do it. or else you can buy from the market compatible ink cartridges which comes with pre charged chip on the cartridge. this chip when comes in contact to the printer carriage assembly where the circuit is located. the printer works fine without any errors

    Inserted new cartridges..orange light still on


    Try re-seating the ink cartridges. A lot of times, the electrical contacts on HP's ink cartridges do not make a solid connection.
