I installed a Canon MX870, Winxp SP2, I also have a stand alone Canon printer I550, and HP Scanjet 5370C, a wireless modem, all of these units are usb hookups. The computer takes almost 5 minutes to boot up when the canon MX870 is installed. It lockes up My Computer, Explorer.Exe. It finally comes in but why so long? I was afraid to buy an all-in-one unit and now maybe I wish I didn't. I removed the Canon MX870 and the computer works great. Can anyone help?
i dont have the tricolor cartridge in my hp 5610 and i want to work only with black cartridge and my printer says there is no cartridge on the left , is it posible to solve this problem and work with one cartridge only ? i can print but copy and fax doesnt work .
I use a clear silicone tube to carefully prime the carts by sucking a
dab of ink out of the tiny print holes before installation. I am
careful to have a tight seal at the holes to prevent getting too much
ink and possibly getting it in my mouth.
1st thing would be to remove the cartridge & check for any damage to the copper contacts as these are what tell the printer that a new cart has been installed. Next make sure you removed the tape covering the nozzles (I've done this before & boy do you feel silly).
If this all looks OK then pull the power out while the cart is still not fitted (this will fully reset the printer).
Once it comes back up, try fitting the cart again also checking that the contacts in the cartridge holder are not damaged/dirty.
