    U071, The small black ink cartridge, "Canon CLI Ink Tank" flashes. Printer won't print. I remove and install it about 5-10 times then it will work for a little while. This is one of the original cartridges that came with the printer. I've had this problem for over 8 months.

I had the same problem when using "chip free" cheap cartridges. Use original Canon ink or cartridges sold with a chip. Once I replaced mine with a chipped cartridge, I had no problems at all.

Error code U071 , more than one ink tank of te following color is installed, is the message on the screen. This is not the case as each cartridge is different and correctly installed?

Hi there,

Error U071 : More than one ink tank of the following color is installed. U071.
Action : Confirm that the ink tanks are installed in the appropriate positions.
The machine will not print if the wrong type of ink tank is used, or if it is installed in the incorrect position.
Be sure to install the ink tanks in the correct order. The proper arrangement from the left is Black (CLI-8BK), Black (PGI-5BK), Yellow (CLI-8Y), Magenta (CLI-8M), Cyan (CLI-8C).

Hope this hepls.

Check ink U071 cyan

Are you using genuine ink cartridges? If not, then perhaps there is no microchip on your ink cartridge. You can take the old chip off your used cartridge and put it on this cartridge and see if this solves your problem.

your cartridge should must be sitted well at the printer head. check it out and clean it.

did you make a hard-reset, if not yet try it.
  • remove data cable from print
  • switch off your printer
  • remove power card from printer and wait atleast 3-5 min to clear the error message que from printer memory.
  • after 3-5 min, make all connection as well, and turn your printer on.
