Depends what you mean by 'strange noise'. If this was the case ever since you bought the machine, then its normal, if you do not get any printer errors. Most printers make noises while they are initializing, lots of gears and stuff moving around inside...

If this is a fairly new occurrence, please explain in greater detail, so I can provide a solution (if there is one:)

My problem begins when I start to scan with my Cannon MP240 printer , the error messages apppear..'Printer is in use or an error has occured. Check Status. Scanner Driver will be closed.' My question is...

scanning has nothing to do with the printing theory it has to scan just fine without ink at all in the printer ..if you have unexpected errors...probably it has something to do with the operating system and the driver ...first remove with the add /remove software ( control panel ) the driver ...and reinstall it clean ..if this would not fix the problem probably have to reinstall the operating system as well cause it has issues that interfere with the accurate function of the scanner /printer

Canon MP240 printer LCD alternates between P and 2.

Not sure about your machine but my Cannon would not work when my colour ink was low. The store I bought it says the manufacturer does this to sell coloured ink as well as black. The setting might say for black ink but there is a certain amount of colour goes in as well. I hardly ever used colour as I do business letters so I purchased a black ink jet which uses a black powder and I get 3000 pages for about 75 dollars worth of black jet powder.

Canon MP240 will copy and print but will not scan.

cannon MP240 will not scan. my black ink alarm keeps flashing along with E,1,6 flashing. I'm out of black ink bit I'm just trying to scan photos. Do you know what this means and does it make a difference if I'm out of black ink to scan?

Thank you! Nikki
