Canon's Pixma printers are versatile colour inkjet printers that can handle a number of different media, such as photos, CDs, transparencies and regular paper. The Canon Pixma MP610 prints photos with 9600 x 2400 dpi resolution and can print directly from camera memory cards. Canon recommends that you use only Canon ink cartridges with the printer. If a non-Canon cartridge is used, you may receive "Error U150" on your printer screen, indicating the presence of an incorrect cartridge and informing you that the printer may not be used. If so, you must replace the cartridge before using your printer again.

Press the tab on the problematic ink cartridge and lift it to remove it from the printer. You will be able to tell which ink cartridge is causing the problem because its indicator light will be off or flashing.
Open the replacement ink cartridge and pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove the protective film. Tear the orange tape off along the dotted line.
Place the ink cartridges into the printer and press where indicated on the cartridge until it clicks into place. Ensure that all ink cartridges have a red indicator light showing that they are properly installed.
Close the inner cover on the cartridge carriage and the scanning unit. The printer will automatically start a print head cleaning cycle. When the cleaning cycle is complete, the printer is ready to use.
