Error messages: U150 + Ink tank errors have occured

Hi I have two error messages. 1st on the display screen of my canon IP 6700D which says - U 150 The following ink tank cannot be recognised. 2nd on computer screen running xp - Ink tank errors have occured. Open the printer cover & replace the ink tanks on which ink lamps are off. Cancel printing. ( 5 tank lights off 1 light on solid - should all be blinking) This situation has occurred by my refilling the original ink tanks with quality ink designed for my brand and model of printer. Had disabled ink level indicator as requested by drivers. Have only refilled 3 times on 1 tank and once on other 5 tanks. The problem is the drivers and chips on the canon tanks. Does any one know a way around the drivers and chips to stop these error messages? I spoke to canon support and they say error messages nothing to do with drivers or chips (yeah right). machine faulty but grey area as to canon repairing under warranty. How do ya like that eh????? Their advice - buy our ink! Get U150 error message reporting ink tank cannot be recognized. Tank is essentially full and have used nothing but Canon OEM ink tanks. Removing and reinserting the tank has allowed me to print on 2 out of 10 trys. I intend to replace the tank and complain to Cannon. Canon PIXMA MP610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

    I also have the same problem for the Magenta. "The following ink tank can not be recognized." When I open the top to check if the red light is on, it is not. But, if I take the cartridge out and insert again the red light comes back. I then close the top and the error message comes back. The printer is new, hardly used.

    Yes I have same problem. Sometimes it says your black ink tank 5pgbk is not recognised and other times it tells me I have two black ink tanks, which suprise suprise!!! is correct! but it willnot print. Canon told me to replace the print head, I did at the cost of £40 even though the printer, a pixma mp800 was under a year old, canon would not replace it for me. Even after all that I still get the same messages. I replaced the tanks with three new canon tanks but it make no difference. I find their support very poor. jbl.

How to clean ink absorber for canon mp237

First of all open the ink cartridge of your printer.
When the ink cartridge would move all the way over, then disconnect the power cord of your printer.
Now pull the frame of rubber from the printer and remove ink pads.
To clean ink pads you may place them in a bowl having warm water and start rubbing and squeezing them to clean it from ink.
After removal of ink, keep the pads separate for dry.
When the pads get dry completely, place them back in rubber frame.
Reinstall the rubber frame in your printer.

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on

Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.
