Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described problem with a Canon Pixma MP450 indicates that the absorbent material that takes in the waste ink could no longer absorb further anymore waste ink. The waste ink if a result of cartridge/head initiation and most often when cleaning is done.

Corrective action is of course replacement of the waste ink pad. Although the reset procedure could be performed to 'trick' the printer to think that it was replaced. Steps involve are:

  1. You will turn off printer.
  2. retaining button Resume/Cancel (red triangle in the circle) press button POWER - indicator it will catch fire by green color.
  3. you will let go button Resume/Cancel, continuing to retain POWER.
  4. press button Resume/Cancel of 2 times, retaining POWER, after which you will let go all buttons.
  5. when indicator will be lit BY GREEN - press button Resume/Cancel of 4 times!
  6. you will turn off printer by button POWER.
Goodluck and thank you for using FixYa.

Welcome to Fixya! Try this. Unplug all Cables and Power from the Printer. Uninstall and Reinstall Printer Software, Restart your PC, Reinstall your Cables and Power, Run Software and Print a Test Page. Let me know where you are at then.

SOURCE: my canon pixma mp830 shows error code 5010. what

The scanner lock switch may be in the locked position. Lift the cover and check the slide switch located on the top front left. If this is not the problem, you will have to have a service center look at the problem.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

My fax wont work in my ricoh aficio 1515 mf??


Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?
