I had the same error message on my MP610. I was reading posts on the net and found a lot of people with this problem so I thought I was in deep, not so. All I did was send an email to canon support explaining the problem, I told them I had tried all remedies IE: deep clean, ect. with no luck. Within 2 hours they sent me an email. They said my unit needs to be replaced. I sent them my personal info which they requested. That was last night. This morning I received an email telling me that my replacement MP610 is on a UPS truck heading to me! I've always had HP's with terrible luck. Because of the way Canon handled this I will always buy Canon! I have never before had a problem taken care of within 24 hours with any problem!! Good luck.

    I received the replacement MP610, installed it, installed printer head, ink ect. When I tried to print the exact same problem occurred as the 1st MP610. I went through the steps, align ink jets, deep clean ect. Finally I called Canon on the phone..
    1-866-261-9362. She had me do the same things again, unplug, plug-in, clean jets, align, ect. I explained that since the only thing that's not new is the print head (they didn't replace that) I felt it was be the problem. She agreed, now I have a new print head on it's way to me. Since I've wasted so much ink while doing deep cleans, she is also sending me some ink.

    I have never had a company that has been so willing to back up their product!

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 no cartridge recognised

Because these a refills inks the Chip things they are full so you must replace the cartridge with a new Canon one and the fault will go. If not just replace the chip with a new one!

Then your error u150 will go.

How do I resolve Error U150 on Canon MP810?

have had a MP810 about 3 months. Recently I've been getting a U150 error message. My C tank is not lighting up and being recognised. When I open up and replace the tank the light comes on. Initially this allowed me to carry on printing but now I have a constant error message even after replacing the tank.
Is there a permanent solution to this annoying problem?
I would be grateful for any assistance.

Error code: U150 The following ink tank cannon be recognized (Cyan)

U150 ink error fixed!

I too was getting the error for unrecognized ink cartridge. Then the little green circ board fell out of the end of the ink cartridge and it hit me that maybe if I put in the little green circ board from the old ink cartridge of the same color, then maybe the ink cartridge would be recognized. It worked! So don't throw out an ink cartridge that still has ink just because of that error and hold onto your empty cartridges in case you need the little green/gold circ boards.

This works!
