Canon Pixma MP950 Ink Refill Error

I have a Canon Pixma MP950, and have just refilled the large black ink tank with generic ink. I am getting an error message U043 telling me that the ink tank cannot be recognised. Pressing the "Stop/Reset" button for 8 seconds does not override and allow me to print. What can I do?

    I have replaced the large Black ink cartridge with a new Canon 5 PGBK cartridge. Every time I try to print, a message comes up telling me that more than one ink tank of the following color is installed (Bk)
    I open the cover, remove the cartridge and reinstall it and it then will print, until the next time when I get the same message.
    What's up with this?

Replace the cartridge with a Canon as the chip has gone on the cartridge.

this is the only way around it with the mp950.

This is to stop them being refilled

Error U071 or U140


check in bottom of the ink cartidge u must have to remove plastic strip.then also check u proper fixed ink cartridge in ink tank as matching color.
re-seating the cartridge may temporarily fix the problem but it will not last. but if even that doesnt give u relief.... then its a hardware failure and wud service is required at this point. contact Hp...

thank you for using Fixya...

Alarm light is lit -


Ok my printer is giving me the U140 message saying that ink tank cannot be recognized. The new ink tank is Cannon (not a off brand or refill). i think it is a problem with the chip reader port inside the printer not the ink tank chip. I feel this way because if you switch around the yellow and black 8 tanks, the printer accepts them without error.. soo if it was the ink cartridge i could be able to swap the black with the magenta and it should read it.

First check the cartridge slots for spilled or dried ink. You can clean the slots with a tiny bit of alcohol on a Qtip.

Cartridge refill


The printer is made for the ink cartridges to be replaced. Some drill a small hole in the top and fill it for there. Any area of the top,where you can make and cover the hole will work. Yes. I would use that ink.The worst that will happen is that it will be too thick or thin and not print properly. You would know that soon enough.

press and hold (stop/reset) for at least 5 seconds, then release it. It will tell the printer that refilled ink tanks are installed. Therefore, allowing printing to continue.
