Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have just bought a Canon PIXMA MP220 printer. However I can't get it to work as I can't insert the ink cartridges and the manual isn't very clear. The display keeps saying 'check printer' I've tried putting the cartridges in different ways but still can't get the printer to work. The cartridges are the PG-40 and Cl-41 recommended for it. Anyone can help or can lead me to a diagram showing how?

You might be better off calling Canon's tech support directly. It sounds like something is very strange, either the printer or your approach; they may be able to talk you through it better. There should not be more than one way of putting the cartridges in.

It may be you've got the cartridges in correctly but are having other problems.You can look on Canon's Web site for a firmware upgrade for the printer ... but I'd call their tech support first.

Have installed new ink cartridges in my cannon mp220,but the display is flashing ink is low on both


Hello!

After you installed the new cartridge, just press and hold the stop/reset button for at least 5 seconds. The printer will restart then.
Do it twice if both cartridge have been replaced. This will reset the counter for the black and colored cartridge..

Using refilled ink cartridges will get this error. You have to reset the waste ink levels by doing the followin
  1. Start with printer off
  2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click “Power” button. green led should be on
  3. hold the Power button, release Resume Button.
  4. Without releasing the Power Button, double click “Resume” button and then release Both Buttons.
  5. Click “Resume” for four times then click “Power” button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).
  6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

Error code U163 on cannon pixma mp220 printer


Those cartridges don't refill unless you have a way to reset the internal chip. Check online for refillable cartridges or a chip resetter. For priming you go into printer properties and choose maintenance and head cleaning, or choose cleaning from the front panel.

My Canon Pixma MP220 is has an error code U051 Chk Ink Blk Col, but i have just refilled my ink cartridges


Same thing happened to my MP220. U051 chk Blk and Colour. I got my colour one replaced as there was an electrical fault in it. So the solution is to replace whichever one has the electrical fault or both and it works just fine. Refilling only works for a certain number of times. 4 or 5 at most and mine only lasted 1, so not always successful.
