  1. Press the "On" button on the top panel of the printer to turn it on. Open the paper output tray at the front of the printer.
  2. Lift the entire printer cover, which should snap open. Then lift the small inner cover.
  3. Press down on the tab below each ink tank to snap out and remove the tank. Lift the print head lock lever that holds the ink tanks in place.
  4. Lift the overflow tray toward the top of the printer and slowly pull it out of the printer. Take care to avoid spilling any ink that has collected in the tray.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: U150 Canon no cartridge recognised

Because these a refills inks the Chip things they are full so you must replace the cartridge with a new Canon one and the fault will go. If not just replace the chip with a new one!

Then your error u150 will go.

I had a similar problem. What worked for me was to remove the power pack, which is secured by two clips. Slide a knife or similar to release the power pack. It will slide out to reveal a mini-plug with five red wires. Disconnect this.

This where it gets a bit uncertain. I plugged in the power pack and put a meter across the outputs. They seemed to be working (ie I was getting voltage). I had a quick look at the indide of the MP510 and decided there was nothing further I could do. I then reassembled everything and, just out of curiosity, pressed the power button again. And it came back to life!

I suspect that in your and my cases, the MP510 had "crashed" and I performed a hard reset by removing and then reconnecting the power pack. But who knows? Best of luck

With the machine powered on. Just lift up on the entire top portion on the platen unit, lower the front verticle cover and the printhead should come to the correct position to change out the ink tanks, just tilt tanks towards the front of the unit and lift out.

Please go to this Canon link (click here) and enter the term "ink cartridge replacement" in the search window for a set of detailed instructions (with pictures) on how to replace your ink cartridges.
As you face the printer, with the scan cover open,in position to remove them, the black cartridge goes on your left and the color on the right.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Can't find my manual and don't know where the ink cartridges go, my printer is a Canon MP510

Your printer must be turned on.
Open the printer by lifting the whole scanner assembly. The Carraiges should move into position so that the cartridges can be inserted.

HOW DO YOU GET THE INK CARTRIAGES TO COME OUT SO I CAN CHANGE THEM??? I am using a Canon mp510 usually you just open the lid and they move to the middle where changing them is easy.

Lift the top cover and you will see the cartridges toward the center of the printer (they are long thin ink tanks with different colored labels). On the side of the cartridges facing you there are tabs that you pressin and then lift that side up. Then you can pull the cartridge out toward you. To insert the new cartridges, simply make sure the side with the tab is facing you and slide the cartridge into the corresponding slot. Then press down on the cartridge where it says "press" untill it clicks into place. A red indicator light should come on if you did this correctly.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges

Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper
but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.
