    Recently installed new cartridge. Worked for a few days, then gave U150 message. Can this still be chip error and should my vendor replace it?

    I had the same problem and called Canon at 1-800-4040 and they are sending me a new cyan cartridge. I hope it works. This was to correct error U150 and other errors.

U150 is a 'faulty electronic chip on the tank' error. If you installed a new Canon OEM tank then probably the chip on the new tank is bad.. Take that tank back for a replacement.. If you installed a Clone(non-OEM) tank, then that one will only work if you retrieve a chip from a known good OEM tank and glue it on to it. Clone(non-OEM) tanks all come without chips.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


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.

Error code: U150 The following ink tank cannon be recognized (Cyan)


U150 ink error fixed!

I too was getting the error for unrecognized ink cartridge. Then the little green circ board fell out of the end of the ink cartridge and it hit me that maybe if I put in the little green circ board from the old ink cartridge of the same color, then maybe the ink cartridge would be recognized. It worked! So don't throw out an ink cartridge that still has ink just because of that error and hold onto your empty cartridges in case you need the little green/gold circ boards.

This works!

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
