    I have been told that you have to override or reset the printer because of a ship on the ink cartrage, but I still have not gotten an answer on how to do it. Good Luck..............

    My ip6700d gives an error message that either the pc ink tank is not recognized or that there is more than one c installed. All the tanks are the originals...we have used the printer very little. The tanks are all full. Not sure why this happens or how it can be fixed.

    When attempting to print I get any one of the following error messages:

    1) "More than one ink tank of the following color is installed. Black [8]. Use only one ink tank per color at a time." More than one ink tank of the same color is installed.

    2) "Ink tank errors have occurred. Open the printer's cover and replace the ink tanks on which ink lamps are off." Some ink tanks cannot be recognised.

    3) "The following ink tank cannot be recognized. Black [8]. Printing cannot be executed because the ink tank may not be installed properly or may not be compatible with this printer. Install the appropriate ink tank." Some ink tanks cannot be recognised.



    I have found that I can temporarily fix the problem by opening the cover and taking the offending ink cartridge out and putting it back in again. I usually have to do this several times before it sorts itself out.

    I am having the exact same problem with my Cannon pixma ip6700d printer. In the past I was able to solve it (can't recorgnize Magenta cartridge) by opening and closing the cover a few times. Now as of this morning I've been trying for over and hour and just cannot get the problem solved. This is so frustrating to say the least and what is really bothering me as well is to see the amout of people having the same trouble. And not only with this model but with other Cannon printers as well. This is a great printer, or at least it was up until a few months ago. I have no idea what to do and any help would be appreciated. I am going to try Cannon Tech Support even though I already know its not going to be of any help at all.

    I've had exactly the same on my iP6700D, now I tried everything, the Cyan ink tank cannot be recognized. NEVER CANON AGAIN !!! It's already quite scandalous that one has to use their ink (I don't actually have to put BMW petrol in my car, you know...), and now what ??

  • deanson Sep 12, 2008

    I have this same issue - all the same errors occuring and a quick fix used to be to open and close the cover. Then I had to started popping the cartridge (magenta8 for me) in and then out. Soon, I had to do it several times to fix it. Now it won't fix no matter what. It's a useless piece of junk sitting by my computer at the moment... and less than a year old.

Here's info on the reset:
When your printer detects a problem with the cartridge you are attempting to use, a flag is set inside the device. This flag may not reset until you perform a hard reset on the device.

1. Verify that the printer is turned on.
2. Open printer's lid/top cover and remove all of the cartridges from their carriers. Close the lid/top cover.
3. Unplug the power cord from the printer.
4. Wait for 10 minutes.
5. Plug the power cord back into the printer.
6. Open the lid/top cover and reinsert both cartridges back in to their carriers.
7. Turn the printer on.
8. Print a test page.

Chip(s) not recognised can have number of causes. The most likely one is bad connection between the chip itself (on ink tank) and the contacts (in printer). Just wipeing the chip & contacts with metho can cure the problem.

hope this helps

I don't have a problem with inks,But i only use genuine Canon ones.

If a brand new ink tank is not recognized, it has a faulty chip. I took the chip off the faulty tank and replaced it with another one. That worked for me.

I have tried replacing all ink cartridges with brand new ones but it keeps saying Error U052 ? I am not really sure why it won't recognize the ink cartridges especially because they are from Canon


The error code indicated, the print head is defective, so it will not get solve by replacing any number of cartridges. Just follow the steps below to reseat the print head, if that does not help, then replace the print head.

  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the <Open> button. (The paper output tray will open.)

  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)

    mp500_scanningunit_open.gif

    Note: When the scanning unit (printer cover) is opened more than ten minutes, the print head moves to the right side. If this occurs, close the scanning unit (printer cover), and open it again.

  3. Open the inner cover.

  4. Remove the ink tanks by pressing the tab of each tank.


    Caution: Handle the ink tanks with care so that your clothes and surrounding area do not get soiled. Make sure to remove the ink tanks one by one.

  5. Raise the print head lock lever.

  6. Tilt the print head slightly towards the front of the machine and lift out gently.

    Caution: Do not touch the print head nozzles <1> , electrical contacts <2>, or ink supply ports <3>. Doing so may cause printing problems.

  7. Place the print head in the print head holder and lower the print head lock lever carefully until you hear a click.

- Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.

- Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.

- Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.

I have a Brother MFC 3340CN and 1940CN,fax,print,copier I was working fine and then all at one message was yellow out of ink please replace and start again. It has a brand knew yellow ink cartiage in it...


The ink that is given to you when you buy a new machine is not the same as if you went out and bought ink. The "starter" ink cartridges are not filled completely (that is a marketing gimmick to get you to buy more quickly). When you say "NEW" do you mean "new, never been used", or "new, just got it last week"?


If it's never been used, be sure that you have removed the protective tape from that cartridge. If it's been removed then the cartridge its self could have a problem or the machine could be at fault (not correctly reading the ink). You choices are to return it to where you got it, or buy a yellow cartridge and replace it.


If it was working and stopped after a very short time (a week or two) I would get a new yellow and try it.


For your sake I hope it's the protective tape was forgotten, it happens quite often.

New print head installed not working well


First thing I would look for is something on the print head contacts. Also is it a new black ink tank? Your old tank may be clogged and thus the ink can not even travel to the print head.

Misreads ink tanks: says full ones are empty and there are 2 cyans, etc.


I had the same problem -- error message saying two cyan print tanks installed. Nothing helped (including disconnecting power cord). Then found I had an older cyan print tank still in its pack on hand, Installed that. No further problems. Assume this means print tank giving error is part of a faulty batch so am returning to retailer for refund from Canon.
