Hi there ok

  1. Start with printer off
  2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click “Power” button. green led should be on
  3. While holding the Power button, release the Resume Button.
  4. Without releasing the Power Button, click “Resume” button for two times and release Both Buttons.
  5. Click “Resume” for four times then soon click “Power” button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).
  6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

    The solution on Error 5 - Canon MP190 really works. Thanks so much! Vincent

  • Vincent Chan Mar 05, 2013

    Clive, I am sorry to inform you that this solution only worked once on my MP190, however, when I turned it off and turn on again, it doesn't work any more in spite of my continuous trial, it still shows error 5. Do you have an alternative solution on this issue?

SOURCE: U150 Canon no cartridge recognised

Because these a refills inks the Chip things they are full so you must replace the cartridge with a new Canon one and the fault will go. If not just replace the chip with a new one!

Then your error u150 will go.

U051 error message. Won't print

Well, you must be using PG30, CL31 cartridge for your printer.

Did you refill your cartridge?
For error 051 means printer is not reading the cartridge. (cartridge is not readable)
When you put refilled cartridge, that's what it happens.
(after 3~4 times of color refill, color cartridge is no long to use, only applies in Canon
and there is no solution for it.)

Pls replace with new one.. and will work again.

Or if you need to refill again with other cartridge, pls....unplug your printer before you taking out the cartridge. In this way, you can re use your cartridge. Little trick... but no solution will work, once cartridge is not readable.

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

Error code E6 after I inserted a remanufactured black (pg30) ink cartridge. Continues after removing cartridge and turning machine off

You could try to press the stop/reset button for at least 5 seconds.
If this does not work, remove both ink cartridges, close cover, turn off printer
Unplug printer, wait at least 20 minutes, plug printer back in.
Wait until printer stop cycling, install ink cartridges.
If there is still an error, the cartridge maybe bad.

Cannon pixma MP190 wont print - replace ink cartigages - errors 5 and 13 showing up on LED. help. Used genuine cannon cartigages. Checked all cables etc.

Were the cartridges new? if they were used they would need to be reset. Also you can go onto the Canon website and that should help too.

My canon pixma 190 printer is not working

In printer utility settings, you have to modify the ink cartridge settings and specify that printer should use only black ink cartridge. Click apply. Then press "stop\reset" button for 5-7 sec. and then release
Then it will work!

I purchased new ink cartridges PG-30 and CL-31 I get error 5

Make sure you take the tape off of the electrical contacts before installing, and if they are refilled cartridges they have not been reset properly. If they are genuine Canon, you can return defective ones for 30 days.
