Question about Canon MP140 PHOTO AIO All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have just bought the Canon MP140 and can't believe how complicated it is to insert the cartridges. If I position them according to the manual's diagrams, they just wobble about and there is no where for them to click into place. The hood above the cartridge place hides everything and I can't see where they may be inserted. Should the cartridges 'stand up' with the gold technical information dots pointing upwards, or should the cartridges lie down with the cartridge number facing upwards? This is very frustrating. Please help!
By default, when you open it the dock for the cartridges is parked at the far right. And with the power off (which is how I tend to open up machines) it stays there.
Try powering the printer on, THEN open the main cover: the docks slide to the left. Then it's simple enough to put the cartridge tilted with the 'smile' lower and facing you, push it along the channel until it clicks into position.
The envelope with manuals/CD was missing for my printer so this was not easy to guess...

Are you lifting the entire top of the printer 1st? I just looked at the user guide. It shows lifting the entire top. Then put the cartridge in at an angle while inserting the rear of the cartridge hold the front of it slightly tilted down then push in until it clicks.
Here's a link to the site where I downloaded the user guide, maybe it will have better pictures that yours. Good luck. take a deep breath, don't let the machine get to you :-)
