Have you tried a different black cartridge. It sounds like the chip on the cartridge is defective.

Every time I turn my Canon mp460 on, it comes up with this code U140 - The following in cartridge can not be reconized B. It is preventing me from printing.

Well.. seems like you are using PG40 or PG50..(black) CL41 or CL51 for your printer.

Pls unplug the power first....before taking out the cartridge.

And then, try to wipe out the cartridge socket part..gentely.

And try back.

If you used refilled cartridge for your printer.. especially "color one", you may have to change your cartridge with brand new..

That's what it happens to Canon printer and there is no other solution for it.

Canon mp460 printer. refilled cartridge not recognised

Dear Sir,

This is deffinately due to catridge circuit problem.Canon suggest that we have to replace emptied catridges with new genuine canon catridge they dont suggest refilling and also not give any support for refilling catridges. So you can replace catridge with new one.
This Happens due to weakining of catridge circuit portion or may long period printer not in use.
If you not want to replace catridges i will give you the possible hints it may fix refilled catridges.
1.Clean the catridge circuit portion with soft cloth,care must be taken that there is no smudge or ink traces on catridge circuit.
2.Clean the ciruit of printer catridge placing box present inside the printer .wipe out the any sumdge or ink traces.
Then re install the catridges. give the print if it shows error press resume button continuosly. I think it will fix your problem.
If it is not solution is replace the catridge with new one.

good luck

How can I get the Canon MP460 to print in black and white only?

what you'll need to do is just refill the color cartridge.
you may not need to use it, but refill it to prevent it from drying out and not being able to work. That is because for the printer to work both cartridges need to be in working order.

Printer won't recognize ink cartridges. How to align heads????

try to restart your printer by long press atleast 40 sec. at power button..and while the printer is off..wipe the tab circuit of the carrier with a cloth and alcohol and also the tab circuit of the printhead.. unload and load the catridge..on the printer..and ON it again..

if the problem still persist..
try to replace your cartridge maybe the circuit on the cartidge has been damage...that's why the printer don't recognize the printhead's..

thanks for choosing FIXYA..
