Question about Canon Pixma MP800 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Anyone game for a class action against Canon? I've called, E-Mailed, and faxed, all to no avail, not one answer, no return contact whatsoever!!! Please post this info about these piece of **** Canon printers on every website you can and anywhere else you can, the world needs to know what GARBAGE Canon is unloading onto the unsuspecting consumer. Hopefully, it will get Canon's attention and maybe those losers will take notice when their sales drop! What say everyone boycott anything that says Canon on it. Come on Canon, take care of this junk you have ripped us off on. I am even telling people IN the stores who are looking at printers to AVOID Canon completely.

Same issue with error U150.
Tech support on the Canon website answered my question within 10 minutes. Within an hour they agreed to send a new ink cartridge. Try tech support!

Took me 10 minutes on the phone with tech support before they replaced my full compliment of cartridges. Same error, u150 on the cyan cartridge.
I was stern and didn't admit that anything I did was related to the issue. My cyan was nearly full anyway.
All I had wanted to do was use the scanner, but free ink half win, half loss....I still can't scan tonight

I ended up taking out the cartridge and re-wetting the nozzle by drizzling some water on a sheet of paper, then tapping the nozzle on the moist part of the paper (not directly in a bead of water). Be sure there is not water left on the cartridge before inserting. This permitted my printer to recognize the cartridge...I guess the problem is the cartridges drying out. YMMV, though.

Make use of warranty!
We had same problem with MP510 yellow tank. We bought a new one which worked for a month, then endless U150 again.
The device is now repaired under warranty, some parts changed, and so far everything is working.
So, if another tank won't solve, and there's warranty left, send it to be repaired. Guess there's no DIY solution. I thought also this to be our 1st and last Canon, but let's see ;) I really like the photos printed.

Call the Canon customer service number. I had that problem with my Magenta cartridge. I fully expected I was going to be stuck with a lemon of a cartridge and have to buy a new one. The rep put me through a few attempts to fix it and in the end they are sending me a free new ink.
I am very impressed and happy. Of course that doesn't fix my immediate need to print but so be it.
