  • Feynman Feb 28, 2009

    I have the same problem with my MP140 after changing the original black Canon cartridge for another non Canon but compatible black cartridge. After printing some documents, the printer suddenly stopped, and returned the flashing error code E and 4.



    Is there some trick to fool the Canon software.

    I have had a similar problem with my former HP printer.



    Thanks in advance for any help

Replace with genuine cartridges is the best policy.

    Of course Canon are going to say replace only with Canon cartridges - they want to make money. I use GOOD compatibles with two or three times the ink quantity and they work fine in my machine and save me a lot of money.

Service error 5100 canon MP140 series


Try cleaning the contacts on the printer and the cartridge with rubbing alcohol. Then unplug the printer for 10 mins. If that does not work contact the cartridge manufacturer and they should send a replacment.

Coloured ink not registering


You can only refill those cartridges if you do it before the ink is empty. After that you need a new cartridge or a chip resetter to reset the chip on the cartridge so it will work again.

MP140 can't recognise the black cartridge that I've just installed. Error code 4 - any ideas? I've tried the manual - nothing, and not much luck online - Thanks


Error code 4 normally indicates that there is no unk, and the solution is by installing a genuine cartridge, Try to use Black PG40 remanufactured Canon printer ink cartridge. This cartridge is a high capacity cartridge which has been filled with 23ml of ink compared with the 16ml (Black) that you get with the originals. Compatible with: Canon Pixma MP140. if this error still occur it is better that you try the following procedure below:-

When you insert a refilled ink cartridge into your Pixma MP140 printer you should get a warning about the refilled cartridge. You should also be prompted, asking if you wish to disable ink level detecting. Agree to do so, and you won’t get the warnings again because the ink levels won’t be monitored by the printer.

Thanks

I have a pixma mp10 scaner and printer it will not scan the light flashes E and 6. What can I do to fix this? Barbara Nash


Halo Barbara,
Did you mean Pixma MP140/160/150/170/180?. I never hear Canon pixma MP10. Well,it doesn't matter. Did you refill your cartridge?. Error code E6 indicates that ink level is not detected properly by the printer. It usually occurs in refilled cartridge. To fix this problem you need to deactivate ink level detection function by performing following procedure:
For MP150/160/170/180: Press START button (Black or Colour)
For MP140: Hold down STOP/RESET button for about 9 seconds

Please rate me as Fixya if this solution useful for you. Thanks

MP140 do not recognize cartrige


Ensure that you are using original cartridges.

Clean the cartridge sensor inside the printer ink carriage with isopropyl alcohol and cotton. From description it looks like a faulty cartridge contact.

The cartridge sensor is the metal plaque that connects to the cartridge chip, is located inside the printer carriage.
