Back in early December I’d bought a brand spanking new Canon Pixma MP600 multifunction colour printer, as our old Brother laserjet printer was on its last legs. At the time it was a bargain at £94 from Argos and I was chuffed to bits – especially after reading such a positive review of it in PC Pro magazine.
So here I find myself a few weeks on with a constant ‘U150 – The following ink tank cannot be recognized’ errors, meaning I can’t use the darn printer and as a result have an outstanding support call to Canon to “sort it out”.
My frustation – anger? – is compounded by the fact that a quick search on Google reveals numerous other people having the same problems, which to me indicates a design fault with the MP600 (and the ink tray in particular). Don’t these companies test their products stringently enough before releasing them for general sale?
Huh, some start to the new year eh!?
