Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

U150 canon pixma MP830 "the following inktank can not be recognized" magenta. Please help, Thanks, Ted I had this problem with the original yellow tank that came with my MP830 printer. Removing and replacing the ink tank multiple times, each time I wanted to print, allowed me to print. With a new set of Canon ink cartridges I have the same error, but with the magenta cartridge, and nothing I do will allow me to print. Removing and reinstalling the magneta ink tank worked for a week or so. Then just opening and closing the printer cover several times worked for a few days. Now I get the U150 error every time I try to print, and I can't get rid of it. (Although for variety, sometimes it says I have two magnent ink tanks installed) Now I can't print at all with this 3-month old printer. Very frustrating!

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.

Error code U150 on Pixma MP830


U150 error is ink tank not recognized, it happens alot on the y cartridge. i would advise you to get a version 3 cartridge. on the back of the cartridge if you hold it in the right light you will see a code like 2AHU 3FGH, this tells us its a version 2, i would maybe buy a version 3 or 5 with a updated chip, this will work fr you, if the fault is still there then the 4 contacts in the carriage unit that reads the cartridges is prob bent or broken!

hope this helps

U150 canon pixma MP830 "the following inktank can not be recognized" magenta. Please help, Thanks, Ted


I have had this problem repeatedly lately. To try the Stop/Reset solution already mentioned, I turned on my infrequently used Canon Pixma MP830. Most of the time at a fresh startup it gives an alarm message "the following ink tank cannot be recognized" OR "there are two of the following ink tanks installed" ??! for the single black 8 cartridge !, a Canon original. Of course, tonight it started just fine, but the methods I have used when it does not work because of these alarms are the following:

I open the top, wait for the cartridge carrier to center, unsnap the black 8 cartridge, then snap it back in and close the top. This sometimes works if repeated until the machine recognizes it. Sometimes I unsnap all the cartridges and resnap them. If this doesn't work, I remove the black 8 entirely and use a clean cloth to wipe the electrical contacts of the cartridge in the direction of their length and reinstall. It sometimes takes a repeated combination of these steps and sometimes the two different alarm messages will appear alternately. There does not appear to be any logic to it. Once the machine does recognize it, it works just fine.

However, if the machine is turned off, many times when it is turned back on later I have to go through all this frustrating rigamarole again. I hope it is a glitch with this particular cartridge (fairly new) and not the machine. Next time I get the alarm messages I will definitely first try the Stop/Reset button solution suggestion, but I thought I'd add my two cents solution, which so far has eventually caused the machine to recognize the cartridge.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


I have a canon mp510 pixma same message U043 and a u150 fault.
I cant see any chip to replace and have replaced my original cartridges with a non branded cheaper type, this might be why. Does this make a difference or is this the same problem occurring with replacement canon cartridges as well.

Dont want to buy genuine ones if its not going to make any difference.

Anyone who can help me would be appreciated

INK TANK


U150 is a 'faulty electronic chip on the tank' error. If you installed a new Canon OEM tank then probably the chip on the new tank is bad.. Take that tank back for a replacement.. If you installed a Clone(non-OEM) tank, then that one will only work if you retrieve a chip from a known good OEM tank and glue it on to it. Clone(non-OEM) tanks all come without chips.
