Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I replaced the magenta ink tank and got the message that the cartridge was no recognized so bought another new one, CANON OEM, and it still says U043 The following ink tank cannot be recognized I cannot scan either with it locked up like this and the stop/reset button does nothing when I hold it down for several seconds. HELP :( Canon MP600. Every time I replace an ink tank I get the message "ink tank cannot be rcognized." Usually after several tries it is resolved. However, I recently replaced the Cyan ink tank and the printer will not recognize it under any circumstances. I cannot get out of this error message. My Canon MP600 (less than a year since purchase) is now out of service. the black ink cartridge was replaced by a new one but the color one is still empty.i get this error even if i select black only option from preferences
Canon pixma mp600 geeft U043 fout melding terwijl de cartridge allemaal vol zijn
deze hebben volgens de leversansier geen chip
hoe los ik dit op hij herkent geeneen cartridge
hartelijk dank b.v

Same problem - two solutions I found helped me work out mine. One said contacts needed to be cleaned and it worked to use a Q-tip and alcohol or just click it in position several times until it recognizes the cartridge - this may work. Another said that they got it to work by installing a brand new cartridge - cool, but I have one full of ink it won't recognize. So I pulled the little circuit board off a used cartridge (like you need to do with some refills) and put it on the cartridge that it wouldn't recogrnize - works great. Still haven't figured out how to get it to acknowledge ink levels though. Canon really should be more consumer friendly since these problems seem to be intended to compel the use of proprietary cartridges.
