    I appreciate the advice. I actually sent Canon support an email describing my problem and they state that I will be receiving a new cartridge in the mail. Not a big help for trying to use the printer or scanner or any other function now but at least they recognize the problem and are trying to make good on it. Thanks again. -John

John, the chip resetter usually will not work on a faulty chip. You could make sure that the chip is aligned on the cartridge and connecting properly in the printer but it will generally be an electronic problem inside the chip itself. You will most probably need a new cartridge OR replace the faulty chip with the one off an old empty cartridge of the same colour, and then reset it using a "chip resetter" device.

I bought some new ink cartrige from Canon for my MP560 but it says that my printer doesn't recognize this ink, and the error U140 appears on the screen. What should I do? I know it's the right ink...


Before trying anything else, make sure that your refill cartridge is seated firmly in the moving printhead assembly. I had one that I had to play with a while until I got it to seat properly.

If you are not using genuine Canon ink tank replacements, you will get an out of ink warning. This may not be related to your problem, but if it is, you need to buy replacements that have the little computer chip that tells the printer that it has a new ink tank if you want the printer and software to think it has a full ink tank. I use a third party ink system with a resettable chip. When the ink tank is removed it resets to tell the printer it is a new, full ink tank. The downside is that, if I remove a partial tank for some reason, it resets and the printer won't warn me in time before the tank goes dry.

MP610 does not recognize ink tank . This keeps happening even after restting the tank (tank is full). Initially, I could lift the tank up and reseat it and it would resolve the problem...not anymore. I...


Every now and then we get a defective cartridge, and Canon will replace it. If it's generic or refilled, you just need a new one. It's a cartridge problem, not a printer problem

Canon MP610 ink refill


Without the resetter it will continue to give error codes, holding the resume button for 5-10 seconds sometimes will turn off ink level reporting, but you either need the resetter or to purchase and install reset circuit boards on each cartridge you refill.

My printer is saying that it does not recognize one of my cartrid


First thing to check is whether there's any soiling on the chip (eg: ink smear or similar). Try removing the cartridge and gently cleaning the chip with a bit of tissue and then replace it.

Otherwise if this an OEM (ie: Canon branded) cartridge, it's possible that the chip has been damaged and you can get a replacement from Canon.

However, you can save yourself problems in the future (as well as open the option for refilling) if you get a chip resetter (the most popular keyword is "redsetter") as this can actually reset problem chips and get them working.

U150, the following ink tank cannot be recognized


I had this same problem too and it's so frustrating because you cannot even scan and scanning is completely unrelated to ink. We called Canon and found out that it was a bad print head (ink tank). They ended up sending us one for free so I recommend calling them to report the problem. 1-800-828-4040.

What is a chip resetter?


The resetter actually resets the Reset Ink Counter not a chip. It resets the ink level (ink metrer) . You can use the resetter tool.

Canon Pixma MP610 CARTRIDGE PROBLEM


HI. Try holding the reset button for 6 seconds to overide the error. This may dissable the chip so it won't report but will allow you to keep printing. Simply check the ink tanks visually.

Refilling will give the same error too, again dissable the error.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


I have a canon mp510 pixma same message U043 and a u150 fault.
I cant see any chip to replace and have replaced my original cartridges with a non branded cheaper type, this might be why. Does this make a difference or is this the same problem occurring with replacement canon cartridges as well.

Dont want to buy genuine ones if its not going to make any difference.

Anyone who can help me would be appreciated
