U051 actually says that the printhead is not installed, or not installed properly. You probably need a new printhead,

I put in a new colour cartrige and I now get the message, 'check ink U051' any suggestions?

Make certain that you removed the tab covering the ink ports. This is usually the problem when the printer cannot locate a new ink cartridge. If that is not the problem, let me know and I will research you error message.

I got this message on the display (canon pixma mp170): "check ink u051"The cartridge is completely new and original. What can I do? Thank you in advance.

MP170 can only accept PG40, PG50, Cl41 & CL51 only. Please check the cartridge model correctly. if problem still persist, ask for replacement for the faulty cartridge.

Check ink U051 code for a Canon printer

For starters, make sure the cartridge you have put in is the right cartridge for the machine. If it is, try pressing the STOP/REST button to cancel tthe message. Also try powering the machine down and re-seating the cartridge. The cartridge may have dirty contact, try cleaning them gently with a tissue and methylated spirits.

If the cartridge is brand new, you may have to either send it away to Canon for a replacement, or take it to where you bought it from for an exchange.

If the cartridge has been refilled, you may have to follow the reset procedure for refilled cartridges. On most Canon printers, simply holding the STOP/RESET button down for about 7 secs will turn off the ink monitoring level for the cartridge that the message is for.

Hope this helps.

I have a major printer problem; in fact I'm now worried that the printer may be corroded and I will have to buy a new one. My printer is a Canon Pixma MP170 and I have so far used a remanufactured...

Cleaning the cartridges or shaking them will not solve your problem. Your printer remembers the serial numbers encoded into the electronics of the cartridges you've used in it. If it sees the same code in a row it will kick out the cartridge. It is designed this way to kick out refills so you have to buy the expensive Canon ink. I own a Cartridge World store and it is my opinion that the Cartridge World you visited should have informed you of this problem. If I were you, I would break down and purchase a Canon original cartridge and see if it works. If it doesn't the first time, exchange it at the store for another new original cartridge and see if that fixes the problem. If not, it is likely there is something wrong with the printer. If you get one of the originals working I would think it would be safe to try a refill again (not a refill of YOUR cartridge but someone else's).

Error message U051 on canon MP460

Check the Label on the cartridge if it covers a certain area then you will get an error message. Compare it with a good cartridge the label should nearly touch the lugs at top end. Only applies to refilled Carts.

Error message UO51

Are you using official Cannon cartridges or "ink refill" cartridges? Did you reset your ink levels in the software?
