    I bought this printer for school next year about three months ago. I installed the ink cartridges, because I had to do so just so I could scan documents. I have not printed anything yet, hoping to save my ink for when I really need it next year. However, I have now have an error message that states my ink tank cannot be recognized. Why is this message showing up and what can I do to fix it?

I had the same problem with black ink. Error U150. Contact Canon on their website. They're sending me a new ink cartridge.

There chances the yellow ink may dried if not used for a week, First remove the cart clean the bottom of the cart with damp tissue paper where the ink comes out on the color cart and then with dry tissue, this this did not work then ,Please contact cannon and get the ink cartridges replaced for free

Error code U150 The following ink tank cannot be recognized


First, make sure you have the right ink cartridges. Here are the right codes: CLI-8BK and PGI-5BK for black, Yellow - CLI-8Y, Magenta - CLI-8M, Cyan - CLI-8C.

If the ink lamp is off then an ink tank error has occurred. Try to remove the ink tank and re-seat it. Make sure you removed the plastic cover on the ink tank. If nothing helped, you need to replace the faulty ink tank.

Epson printer says "cannot recognize ink cartridges".


Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left.
I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.

Changed yellow ink to new cartridge. Printer won't recognize.


I contacted the Brother site, the support function there. Pursuant to what I found there, I unplugged the printer for ten seconds and replugged. The message display then told me that cyan was empty, and that magenta was near empty.

I installed a new cartridge in place of the empty cyan, and that fixed it.

Yellow color light keeps going off


Yeah its a pain in the rear - only solution I have found is bite the bullet and replace the ink tank. They have have a chip and if the chip goes bad you are screwed. Mine likes to go out on the cyan tank. Great product Canon.

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.

Hi, I went local and found that to fix the problem would cost a lot to time and much money, so I bought the later model at half the price of my old one purchased one year and three weeks ago. Thank you for replying.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


I had the same problem. My mp630 is also only 4 months old. I replaced all colour ink cartrdiges(inc black), but was only able to release the function for detecting the ink levels for magenta and cyan. Yellow and black then started giving error message U043, with them alternating between working, but never working at the same time. Getting them all clicked in with the lights glowing red does not solve the problem, as once the printer cover is closed, the same error message turns up. The only thing that worked for me is moving the chip slightly out of alignment, by pushing the sliding chip holder, and I only had to do this twice before they all started working and the printer was unlocked.
