I cant print it says I'm out of black link and I just replaced it and it's flashing E 1 6


Locate the STOP/RESET/RESUME button on your printer which is represented by a triangle within a circle on the body of your printer and is usually in red, white or black as pictured below. With the reset button located hold it down for at least five seconds and then release it.

Canon MP970 prints blank pages. How can I FIX that problem?

Some times when you get a new cart. a fine film can be blocking the
exit hole,check that this is clear by shaking the cart. up and down
over a large piece of paper ,if you do not get any ink out ,take a small
pin and gently insert it into the exit hole and move it around in a circle,
don't go to deep,then try shaking it again..? Another idea is to replace
all the carts.(colour ones also) as some printers wont work unless you
do this, after changing carts. disconect your printer from mains supply
and leave for about 15 minuets to reset..Hope this works for you
good luck. T.C.

Unable to use canon mp970 with error 2.114.0

Print cartridge

When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

Canon MP970 5100 error

I had this same problem. I took a flash light, moved the ink carriage and was able to feel around and find a small wad of paper. After removing it, I noticed a large amount of ink build-up running along UNDER the ink carriage. I took a damp Q-tip and got off as much as I could. To my surprise, it worked.

Canon PIXMA MP130 printing blank pages & cartridge jammed message

Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100 Yes see lots of this errors
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.
