Nope! Canon played a little nasty on re-fillers and made these cartridge virtually un-fillable. Not that they can't be refilled, they can. They just won't be recognized in your machine.
They have done a couple of strange things with the software and the cartridge.

1. Software writes to the cartridge to actually marry it to the machine. This encodes id numbers on the cartridge so that another machine cannot use the cartridge.
2. They have placed a "fuse" of some type in the cartridge which is actually "blown" when the "out of ink" message is displayed. This renders the cartridge un-usuable for another cycle.

I like the Canon product. Just not these particular ones. The ones that take cartridges 30/31/40/41/50/51. I have seen too many of them come into my shop for repairs after barely 2 years of use. They are un-repairable regardless of their issues.

I suggest you look at a different Canon product, one that takes the individual ink tank cartridge PG-5 and CL-8 series. These are much better machines and the printer itself will last longer.
Just be aware that you will have an added cost in the print head which is a consumable that will need to be replaced every 3 years or so!

Canon Pixma MP210 will not recognize high yield PG-50 & CL-51 cartridges.


The canon pixma mp 210 uses PG-30, CL-31, PG-40, CL-41
It will not recognized the PG-50 & CL- 51
See if you can return it and exchange it for the PG-40 & CL-41.
If not, the only other way is to transfer the ink into the other ink cartridges.
The cartridge cap can be removed by a sharp tap at the back end of the cover.
You can glue back the cover.
If there is an E 1,6 Error code, Ink has run out after you install your ink cartridges
Press and hold the stop/reset button for about 10 seconds to clear the error code.

Correct loading of ink cartridges. Error E2


When a printer error occurs, the Alarm lamp is lit orange. The number displayed on the LED indicates the type of error that has occurred. Check the error code displayed on the LED and take the appropriate action to correct the error.


E and number (error code) are alternately displayed on the LED of MP210 series.


Error E, 2:


Cause: The machine is out of paper. / Paper does not feed.


Solution: Reload the paper correctly and press the Black or Color button.


This sounds like to simple a solution. Make sure this is the correct error code and it is not followed by another number. If problem persists check that you have removed the protecftive material from the FINE cartridge holder. Unplug the machine from the power source for several minutes. Power up. Hopefully this corrects the problem.


If not, try checking the status of your ink cartridges:


1 Open the printer properties dialog box from Control Panel.


2 Click View Printer Status on the Maintenance sheet.


To confirm the FINE Cartridge information, click the Ink Details menu.


This my give further clues to any problem.


Trust this is helpful. :)

Canon MP210 getting E5 message with PG-50


Sadly Canon cripple many of their printers so that they will not accept the high yield cartridges such as the 50 & 51. As a result your printer the MP210 will only accept the 37 or 38 cartridges which are only half filled, or the 40 and 41 which are fairly full, but don't contain as much as the 50 & 51. All I can suggest is that you could try to sell the 50 on eBay, and send a strongly worded email to Canon.

Replacement ink cartridges


to be honest the generic or refurb cartridges are hit and miss

And the printer heads on these are used and may have allot of previous use .

Best bet it to use official ink cartridges.

Hi, my canon pixma mp210 shows error 61 or 16 after refilling black ink... ? thanks!


Dear cappina,
Error code E16 indicates that remaining ink is unknown. It is common problem in refilling the cartridge. To fix this problem you need to deactivate ink level detection function. Follow this procedure: press and hold STOP/RESET button for about 9 seconds or more then release it. Now E16 has disappeared and the printer should work properly. As consequence, ink volume in panel become UNKNOWN. No problem. It will be back to normal condition when you replace the cartridge with new one.
Regards,

I have a new canon mp210 printer ink is low i bought new ink to replace old their is no ink cartridges in printer. When i look at the pictures to load new ink and put it in alarm light is flashing


Even if the ink level is low, you can continue printing.Press the paperfeed knob for 5 seconds. inklevel indicator will stop now.
Sometimes a new (or refilled) cartridge is not recognised correctly.
When one color is really mt, stop printing and replace inmideatly the colorcartridge.Printing or scanning without the 2 cartridges in place is impossible.
