Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer

Printer error on a canon mp 470

My MP470 printer is around a year old. We replaced the ink cartridges with black 40 and colour 41 a few months ago, we used the printer a few times, then an error came up on the LCD screen
U051 Printhead is not installed. Install the printhead. It has now sat around for about 2 months. The printer is also telling us that it doesn't recognise the colour ink. The cartridge is in correctly.
Can you please tell me whether it is worth fixing, I paid $114 for it, am I better off buying a new one.

    Same problem as above post. U051, print head not install. Install the print head.



    This problem occurred after I have not use the color cartridge for a while. I was using only black. This allowed printing for around 30 pages or so after color was low, at which time i switched to black only. Unable to reset this problem, even with refilled color cartridge. Attempted to clean contacts in back of cartridge with alcohol, still same error code. Is there a solution to this problem without getting a new OEM cartridge?

What should I do when Error 5100 shows up???

Posted on Sep 13, 2008

According to an employee at my local cartridge refiller, this is a trick Canon put in to stop people from using refilled or off-brand cartridges. Each cartridge comes with a special code programmed by Canon that the printer must recognize before it'll work. Sort of like DRM for printers. She says the solution is to "reset" your printer. I'm trying to figure out how to do that, and I'll post a link to instructions as soon as I find them.

I have a Canon MP470, I had to replace the black ink cartridge, and after doing so, I got an error saying that the black ink cartridge is not recognized. I have done everything I know to do to correct...


Welcome to FixYa!

Check if the ink cartridge is compatible with your printer. There are only 2 models of Canon Black Ink that is compatible with MP470. PG-30 11ml and PG-40 16ml.

Good Day. Do I need to replace both cartridges at the same time to get a good print from my Canon MP 470 printer Thank you


Absolutely not! Every printing head/cartridge is totally indipendent! Change cartridges only when their ink level is low...

Good day,
Pelu.

I want to use black ink only and stop wasting color ink


Hi,
Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.

Compatibility of Ink cartidge.


The MP600 does not use the 40 or 41 cartridges, it uses individual color (and black) ink tanks. But other models (MP190, MP460, MP470, etc) do use these cartridges. The error message you are receiving indicates that the printer does not recognize the cartridge you installed as a valid black ink cartridge. This can mean that either the cartridge is faulty, or that the printer has a problem.
I would suggest trying another new cartridge, and if you still get the same error, to contact Canon for support options if the unit is still in warranty.
