Hallo Nard,

To resolve that issue you are getting when using the Canon Pixma printer, you will need to do the following:

  • You will need to try holding down the Stop/Reset key for about 5 seconds of the Canon MP140.
  • After that you will need to reset it and see if it will recognize the cartridge.
  • Anyways, you will need to verify if have replaced the cartridge or you did a refill of it, for that may be a possible cause of the issue that you're getting.

Another thing you'd need to be sure about is that the colored tape was removed from the back of the ink cartridges. The tape is usually put on by the manufacturer to protect the circuits during shipping.
