    I have a message "Check Ink U041 8bk" om my printer and it will not print/fax or scan. I've tried holding the stop/reset button for 5 sec but this didn't help. The ink cartridge is nearly full and the red light is flashing. Is there a way to reset this error to get the printer working again?

It is damn simple,
1. open the front cover of the printer
2. remove the print head........by unlocking it and give a thorough wash in water
3.dry the print head till no water remains and re install the print head in its original position
.......... 1......2....3....poof ........... its fixed
NOTE: Remove the ink tanks before washing

My Canon Pixma MP220 is has an error code U051 Chk Ink Blk Col, but i have just refilled my ink cartridges


Using refilled ink cartridges will get this error. You have to reset the waste ink levels by doing the followin
  1. Start with printer off
  2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click “Power” button. green led should be on
  3. hold the Power button, release Resume Button.
  4. Without releasing the Power Button, double click “Resume” button and then release Both Buttons.
  5. Click “Resume” for four times then click “Power” button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).
  6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

What does the message check ink u051 BLK Col mean?


Hold the resume/reset button down for a fair few seconds and this usually overrides the message - it will make a sort of loud click sound when achieved.

Pixma mx328 check ink u051


The error usually came out after you refill ink on the black cartridge...there is no way you can make the printer work without resetting the ink cartridge..

Try to reset the printer using this procedure.. it will help.
1. turn off the printer..
2. press/hold the stop/reset button..and press/hold power button too..
3 while holding power button, release the stop/reset button..
4. then press the stop/reset button twice..
5. release power button..and wait until the power button lights a steady/still green and says "idle"...
6. open the cover...take out both catridges.. then turn off the printer.
7.put back the cover then turn on...
8. now put the catridges back.. and wait for some time to return to display menu... then try to print...

The printer may still prompt a "black ink volume unknown and color ink volume unknown" but don't worry that won't affect the operation of the printer. And you will able to use your printer, fax and scanner.

Do this every time you refill the ink of the cartridges.

If you find this solution helpful please vote on this on the YES below..thanks..

My Canon Pixma MP220 is has an error code U051 Chk Ink Blk Col, but i have just refilled my ink cartridges


Same thing happened to my MP220. U051 chk Blk and Colour. I got my colour one replaced as there was an electrical fault in it. So the solution is to replace whichever one has the electrical fault or both and it works just fine. Refilling only works for a certain number of times. 4 or 5 at most and mine only lasted 1, so not always successful.
