SOURCE: error code E6 after I inserted a remanufactured

You could try to press the stop/reset button for at least 5 seconds.
If this does not work, remove both ink cartridges, close cover, turn off printer
Unplug printer, wait at least 20 minutes, plug printer back in.
Wait until printer stop cycling, install ink cartridges.
If there is still an error, the cartridge maybe bad.

SOURCE: Paper does not feed and E3 error code is flashing

I have one of these printers and have found the problem, crappy enigineering and inferior parts. Looking at the printer from behind, on the left side (where the motor is located) There are two white gears, located at the bottom and behind a larger black gear. One is of medium size and has a spring. The other is smaller and slides into the medium gear. If you can get these two gears back together and in their proper location, then you're set. But, if you're like me and get frustrated easily, DON'T TRY IT! I broke mine :( A repair will cost as much as a cheap printer, so bite the bullet and hit-up your local rite-aid, they have printers that wont bust the bank. Keep your MP 150, after all the scanner/copier will still work without its attached printer.

Go to this link. In the search window in the center of the screen, type "error e 1 5" and click on the Search button. Select the appropriate error message, then select the answer that says "reseat ink cartridge". You may not have locked the cartridges into place by lifting up until they click.

Select true black and white. Any other setting uses the colour cartridge to sharpen the printing.

What can i do for my printer canon pixma mp287 series if get in low-mode.???


I think you are saying that the "Low Ink" warning has stopped you from printing.......The message can be cleared by holding down the "Stop / Resume" button for a count of 10 seconds. If the message is still present it is because both ink cartridges are low. you can repeat the re-setting by doing the same thing twice. This clears the message and will allow the complete use of every drop of ink, however it can also damage the cartridges for refilling if you wish to reuse them.

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
