Use of High yield Cartridges in Canon Pixma 150

I purchased 1 x Canon high yield ink cartridge CL 51, and 1 x Canon High yield ink cartridge PG 50 . – The cartridges say on the sides of the box the printers they are suitable for and list the Canon Pixma MP 150. However when I install the cartridges I get the message “cartridge not recognised” My printer is definitely a Canon Pixma MP 150 printer. This is the first time I have tried the 'high yield' cartridges.

    Har precis samma fel. Skrivaren skrev dock ut ett tag efter jag lyckats få igång den (vet inte riktigt hur).

    Efter ett tag stannade den helt och larmar E5...

    Vad ska jag göra...

    I did not succeed to install the PG-50 cartridge on my Canon PIXMA MP150. It does not seem to fix.

    I bought some ink cartridges yesterday for my printer and got 510&511 combo pack for a MX320 only to get home and notice mine has 40&41 combo in it and is a MX310. Can I still use the 510&511...

    That printer uses the following ink cartridges

    (low capacity)

    (normal capacity)

    (high capacity)

    The ink you purchased will not work on the Canon PIXMA MX310 printer.

    Canon Pixma MP210 will not recognize high yield PG-50 & CL-51 cartridges.

    The canon pixma mp 210 uses PG-30, CL-31, PG-40, CL-41
    It will not recognized the PG-50 & CL- 51
    See if you can return it and exchange it for the PG-40 & CL-41.
    If not, the only other way is to transfer the ink into the other ink cartridges.
    The cartridge cap can be removed by a sharp tap at the back end of the cover.
    You can glue back the cover.
    If there is an E 1,6 Error code, Ink has run out after you install your ink cartridges
    Press and hold the stop/reset button for about 10 seconds to clear the error code.
