    Thanks for your reply to my problem but I cannot get the printer to do a nozzle check or a head cleaning. It keeps coming back with the message that the printer is not recognising the cyan ink cartridge. I have taken it out and put it back several times. The printer was not out of ink for any length of time.

Try doing a nozzle check to see which colors are getting through the printhead. If you are missing lines in the pattern or there is no ink color showing, you will have to do a head cleaning. Was your printer out of ink for any length of time? If so, it is a clogged printhead. some printers are designed in a way that will not allow you to print at all, if you are out of a color. They do this for a specific reason- If you were allowed to print in black and you were out of yellow and you did this for a month and then replaced the yellow, you would have a clogged printhead. Why? Because there is a reservoir in the print head and if you do not replace the ink, after a while, the ink in the reservoir will dry out and you will have a clogged printhead. The only way to fix this is to do a head cleaning (2-3-4, depending on how bad the clog is) and that uses a lot of ink. So, Epson does not allow you to print if one color is out, to save you the time and expense of having to do a head cleaning.

Did you remember to take the tape off the top of the cartridge? If so, run a few cleanings and do a nozzle check. If there is still no cyan, your print heads may be clogged

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.

Can't find where the ink cartridges are on the cannon mp830 to replace


THE INK CARTRIDGES :
This multifunction printer is compatible with all of the following ink cartridges. Here is a list of these cartridges and how they you can get them:

PGI-5 Pigment Black
CLI-8Bk Black
CLI-8C Cyan
CLI-8M Magenta
CLI-8Y Yellow

All of the ink cartridges are easy to install and/or replace; all you have to do is keep the printer ON, then open the cover it will come in the position and then unlock the cartridge which allows you to remove and replace the cartridge.

These cartridges cost any where between $10 and $15 each. But if you want a good deal, I would suggest purchasing your ink supplies from Costco Wholesale as they provide good prices on packages.
