Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I replaced the Magenta cartridge when it ran out using a Canon 4ink tank package. This worked fine. A few days later the Black8, Cyan8 and Yellow 8 ran out. When I replaced them I now get various messages. Sometimes it says U043 that the Black Yellow and Cyan cannot be recognized. Other times it says that all four cannot be recognized, then it says that I have duplicate cartridges installed. I have clicked the cartridges out and pushed them back in. Sometimes the red light goes on for a few seconds then it goes off. Occassionally one or two of the lights blink and then stay on for a few seconds and then go off. As expensive as these cartridges are, I am hesitant to just try another box. Any suggestions you may have would be greatly appreciated.
Aligning the cartridge has nothing to do with the problem of the u150 error that two of the same ink tank cartridges are installed. It's a defective chip in the ink cartridge, as soon as I placed a new cartridge in it worked like a charm. HOLD ON TO YOUR INK CARTRIDGE RECEIPTS, because if this happens to you and the cartridge is obviously new....the store of purchase should provide you with a replacement (+ if you don't want to make a 2nd trip, some stores have the mp830 on display and you can have them toss the cartridge in and check to make sure the chip is working properly). IF THE STORE WON'T REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE CARTRIDGE, contact CANON (USA 1-800-828-4040)and explain the problem & hopefully the will stand behind their product and replace the defective cartridge.

I have a U043 saying the cyan ink cannot be recognized after I was trying to replace it with a new one. I did accidently put the blue on there & the cyan in the blue than the printer did not recognize both at first, but after I switched it, the blue was recognized and the cyan still did not work. Than I had went back to return the new cartridge at the store with another one and it still did not work with the new one. Do I need to clean the cyan area? And how?

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.

Try to open and close the main cover a bit, ... ink recognition will start and may solve the probleme ...
... otherwise remove the cartridge and clean the chip contacts e.g. with spirit
Maybe also pressing the stop/reset-button for >10s will also help to continue printing, but in this case the fill level of the cartridge will no longer be shown

Same problem - two solutions I found helped me work out mine. One said contacts needed to be cleaned and it worked to use a Q-tip and alcohol or just click it in position several times until it recognizes the cartridge - this may work. Another said that they got it to work by installing a brand new cartridge - cool, but I have one full of ink it won't recognize. So I pulled the little circuit board off a used cartridge (like you need to do with some refills) and put it on the cartridge that it wouldn't recogrnize - works great. Still haven't figured out how to get it to acknowledge ink levels though. Canon really should be more consumer friendly since these problems seem to be intended to compel the use of proprietary cartridges.
