MP210: Can I use the scanner without the printer?

Hi, I need your help with this problem: the Canon MP210 ran out of color ink. The cartridge was refilled, but now I get the E5 error - the printer does not recognize the ink cartridge /from what I read, there is a chip in the cartridge and I need to buy a new one/.

Anyway, the problem is not in the E5 error. The problem is, that the scanner does not work, too, as long as the printer is out of order! That is so silly! When I try to scan, the scanner dialog opens with the scanner buttons, but when I try to scan, I get the following error message: Printer maintenance in progress. Scan after it is complete. Code: 2,11,0

What is the bloody connection between the scanner and printer??? Is there a way, that I can disable this - is it possible to be able to scan, without fixing the printer issue?

If printing and scanning is related in a way, that missing ink prevents from scanning, then this is the most stupid and useless piece of machinery I've ever seen ;(

    Printer won't recognize refilled ink cartridges so I installed a brand new one and it doesn't see that one either.

Hi, I need your help with this problem: the Canon MP210 ran out of color ink. I have removed both the cartridge. Anyway, the problem is not in the E5 error. The problem is, that the scanner does not work,...


The scanner and the printer are connected together.Both need initialized for printing or scanning.You can't scan if you haven't cartridges in printer and you can't print if the scanner not initialized.Put cartridges back and press and hold the resume button for 5 seconds.If you still have E5 error that mean you have a defective cartridge and you need to replaced.

All in one MP210


This worked for me: hold down the stop/reset button til the indicator light near the on/off button starts cycling.  The color ink orange light remains on but I can still print black and white and scan as normal.  Good luck!

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.

Ink cartage


This printer will take either the PG-30 or PG-40 (larger size) cartridges for black ink, and either the CL-31 or CL-41 (larger size) cartridges for color ink.
