Question about Canon PIXMA Office Equipment & Supplies
When I turn on the power, the LED light of A4 paper, black and color ink is flashing with error code P>2>2 on the screen. I can do notthing with the printer. When I open the lid to check , cartridges have no action and I can not get the Cartridges. What should I do? I wish to fix it myself before sending to service centers.

I have one of these printers and have found the problem, crappy enigineering and inferior parts. Looking at the printer from behind, on the left side (where the motor is located) There are two white gears, located at the bottom and behind a larger black gear. One is of medium size and has a spring. The other is smaller and slides into the medium gear. If you can get these two gears back together and in their proper location, then you're set. But, if you're like me and get frustrated easily, DON'T TRY IT! I broke mine :( A repair will cost as much as a cheap printer, so bite the bullet and hit-up your local rite-aid, they have printers that wont bust the bank. Keep your MP 150, after all the scanner/copier will still work without its attached printer.

Please go to this Canon link (click here) and enter the term "ink cartridge replacement" in the search window for a set of detailed instructions (with pictures) on how to replace your ink cartridges.
As you face the printer, with the scan cover open,in position to remove them, the black cartridge goes on your left and the color on the right.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Sometimes the Canon printers which use PG-5BK/CL-8 colour cartridges with chips will give error massages like 6502 or other types of error message to do with the cartridges, which has the orange light flashing and the printer will not work. Follow this procedure which quite often resets the printer and allows it to resume printing.
When error is indicated, turn power switch off so green light is extinguished.
First hold down resume button and then hold down power button so both are held down at same time
When green light comes on, continue holding down power button and let resume button go, then press resume button twice. Then let power button go.
Then press resume button four times, power button should be released before doing this.
Wait until printer settles down, if power is off, turn on. If power will not come on, remove power cord from back of printer, then wait 15 seconds before plugging back in again and turn power on. This normally solves the error problem - if not go through same procedure again.
Incidentally, you may find that if the chips had previously been disabled, the low ink warnings are showing again and they will have to be disabled once more. This would indicate that the above procedure clears the firmware memory of the disabling of the chips, this may be useful if you need some warranty work done on your
printer after the chips had been disabled.
