In order to get rid of this error message, you will need to restore your printer. Please keep in mind that whenever you restore one of these devices it may change numbers on your computer. This particular solution is a very simple one, but you can always contact us by posting a comment in the section below this post if you have any problems with this procedure.

This error usually shows up when the ink cartridges haven’t been installed properly, or when the contacts on them are dirty. You should also know this error message appears on canon printer models created more than 3 years ago.

The solution to this problem can be summarized in three steps.

Procedure for solving the u041 error message on canon printers:
Step #1:
First of all, turn your printer off. You won’t need to disconnect the power cable this time.

Step #2:
Now that the printer’s off, please press and hold the ok and stop/reset buttons on it simultaneously. The stop/reset button key can be found on the lower-left side of the panel.

Step #3:
While keeping both buttons pressed down, turn your printer on. You will now be able to see the printer restore itself.

After this last procedure has finished, we recommend you install the ink cartridges on the printer as we’re about to show you. If the u041 error is being caused by some malfunction in your ink cartridges, this should get rid of it.

This procedure will work on any printer that uses canon 30 and canon 40 ink cartridges, among many others.

Please repeat the following steps to change the ink cartridges on your canon printer

Once you’ve checked the printer is turned on, open the lid that’s located under the scanner, just as the following picture indicates. Now take a look at it.
