Question about Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Printer

Open Question

Canon Pro 9000 "holder is in the replacement position. Close the printer's cover." but neither is true. How do I get rid of this error?

The ink tanks are all half full or better. I've taken out each ink tank and cleaned the sensors. What else can I try? This error keeps occuring.

This is down to a hardware error in the tank itself. Only remedy is to replace the ink tank and not use refilled or copy tanks.

An on-line problem solver answered this question for me as follows, and it worked beautifully. I had previously tried just removing the ink cartridges, and then re inserting them, but that did not work.

"This is a somewhat common problem with the metal contacts that connect to the ink cartridge. Sometimes it can be fixed by cleaning the contacts, but other times it requires getting a new ink holder from Canon customer service.
To clean the contacts, you'll need a Q-tip and some isopropyl alcohol (it's important that it is isopropyl and not another kind of alcohol). Pull out the ink cartridges and clean the contacts on each one with the Q-tip dipped in alcohol. In particular, you want to make sure there are no fingerprints on the contacts. Then, turn off your printer and do the same with the contacts in the ink holder in the printer. Once the alcohol has dried on both sides, reinstall the cartridges and give it a try.
If this doesn't work, I recommend calling Canon tech support, so they can send you a replacement part."

According to Canon's instruction manual, you must complete the cleaning in less than 10 minutes. It took me about five. I did exactly the tech suggested, and after turning everything off and waiting a minute or so, I restarted everything, and the problem was solved.
You must be careful though, because if you leave a Canon Pi6600 cartridge out of the printer for more than 10 minutes, not only will the cartridge tray move back to the "off" position (out of reach), but the ink cartridges nossles will dry out and possibly not work. Also, do not "squeeze" the ink cartridges or you will get ink on yourself.

Hi, my canon MP250 is displaying the error P08 and error 5200 on the computer. Can you help me please


Start with printer powered off
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder.
6. Close printer cover. Plug electricity back in.
7. There should be a message about checking the ink cartridge on the display (I can't remember exactly what it said but it was something like that).
8. Open printer, lift the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridge area and reinsert the ink cartridge holder (with the ink cartridges in it). Lower the gray arm.
9. Close printer cover.
10. The display should appear normal now, and you should be able to print again.

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help


  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    My 9500 printer is not printing one color and ive done the deep cleaning as instructed. how do i remove the print head so i can clean it?


    Turn the printer on.
    Lift the cover to expose the print-head mechanism.
    The print-heads will slide to a position from where you can "unlock" the ink-cartridge from its holder, and then gently remove the empty(???) ink-cartridge.
    Insert a new ink-cartridge (or refill the empty cartridge).
    Close the lid.
    Print a "test" page.
