I had contacted Canon to resolve my problem.

Through the technician I am informed that the printer has to be sent back for service as one of the 4 pins on print-head print has dropped off leaving only 3pins that is why the error code U043 simply occur which is why replacing another new ink cartridge does not resolve the issue.

I have understand from him that:-

  1. Most of the time when error code flash up, usually are due to the unique feature that Canon has build on the ink cartridges not properly done which resulted to be faulty. Canon's purpose is to prevent the usage of 3rd party ink cartridges. Of course this causes inconvenient to users, but if users are not using 3rd party ink cartridges, once detected is Canon's ink cartridge issue, do contact Canon, they will provide house call for 1 to 1 exchange for the ink cartridge.
  2. Other times if by replacing new ink cartridge the problem for error code still occurs, it might be the pin on the print-head has lost the alighting, this will require for Canon to service to alight back the pin on print-head in order for the printer to operate smoothly again.
  3. If your problem is like mine, inputting the ink cartridge into the wrong slot, well I guess only have to contact Canon as the printer's components used seem to be highly sensitive, by input the wrong slot would have caused scatches on the pin, well it is better to have the ink cartridge remove by the expert than to DIY. (Maybe check with your own nearby technician if by any lucks they can help to rescue your printer, which I hope Canon does not have further enhancement on their printer with other Unique features to prevent users from using 3rd party technical support.)
I hope the above information will help all the troubled Canon printer users as I notice from previous search on this website, there are other users having problem like ink cartridge is only partial used, but error code appear to check ink cartridge, maybe trying to taking out and putting back, it works sometime and problem occurs again, by replace a new ink cartridge will help as the partial used one would be faulty already, and do call up Canon to report the issue and they will exchange a new ink cartridge for the faulty partial used cartridge.

Canon PIXMA MP160 - can you use a black ink cartridge in place of the color?


Hi,
you cannot insert or interchange the cartridges in black to color slot. It will not accept and if you do it by force, you are damaging the printing mechanism of the printer

Canon error 6400


Open the ink replacement cartridge and unplug the printer when the printer head assembly moves to the center. Check the rollers and other parts for pieces of paper that may stop them from moving properly. Check the purge unit to make sure no foreign objects interfere with its movement. It should move easily along its rails without being forced. Also make sure the small ink pads in the purge unit are secure in their holders.If you removed any obstructions, the printer should start working. If the error persists, you may need to take the printer in for service.

Printer will not accept ink cartridges - displays "check ink" even with brand new cartridges


First make sure you are placing the right
color cartridge into the right slot.
Most Printers are touchy about the
installation of ink cartridges. If the
instructions say to press the cartridge
into the slot until you hear a loud click,
that's what they mean. If at first you
don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
reinsert it into the slot again and press
on it hard till it clicks.
Then your printer should work properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

I forgot how to change ink cartridge on my printer CANON MP520


usually with the pixma range, if you lift the lid to expose the cartridges, the printer will automatically bring the print head along to the opening to allow you to exchange the cartridges, once it does, simply press down on the exposed cart, and remove it from the printer, the new one is then placed in the now vacant slot and gently lift up the edge until it clicks in to place. Close the lid and the printer will do the rest.

How to remove the ink cartridge from the wrong slot for canon mp530


There is no solution to this problem unless you know how to take the printer apart to remove the cartridge. The printer has probably been damaged when trying to get the cartridge out anyway so my solution is buy a new printer.
