Make sure the printer ink cartridges are set in all the way.  If it is not properly set in place, printer will not work correctly.

SOURCE: Inserting the ink cartridges!

I read one of the earlier posts which helped; the problem was that there is a dock built in to the left, but that is NOT where the ink goes! The real place hides to the right and only slides over when the printer is turned on. I had to almost force it to get it to stay to the left over the dock so I could actually insert the ink cartridge. The previous posters' soluntion, turning the printer on so the cartridge dock moves into view, is the only thing that worked for me.

Angle the cartridges upward as you place them in the holder. Then lift the back end (towards yourself) and they should snap into place.

How do I get the ink cartridges to stop so I can change the ink!

Cancel the current print job and power off your printer. You can even unplug it to make sure it won't move.

My cannon mp600 printer makes a whirling noise when i switch it on.and comes up with error 6B00. the noise sounds like the cartridges are struggling to move across

From reading up specifics...

i have a couple of different pixma printers but have done similar things...

Paper feed position error [6B00]

possibly something is jamming the paper feed... like a toy or pen down the back or a tiny piece of paper?

have a good look ... maybe blow out with AIR DUSTER ... (still no go?)then after that try turning printer upside down and give it a gentle shake, yes, really

be careful though

if helpful please rate

Cannon MP830 Printer cartridge jam

So you cant get the ink tanks in place properly?

Have you tried this method to ensure they're properly seated? Is the printer on or off when you try to seat the tanks?

Refer to the following steps to verify the ink tanks are seated correctly:
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the Open button. (The paper output tray will open.)


  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)


  3. Open the inner cover.

    a. Do not try to manually move or stop the Print Head Holder.
    b. Do not touch any metal parts.

  4. Press down on the ink tank until a click is heard, thereby making sure the ink tank is seated properly.


    Make sure that the ink tank is inserted in the slot that corresponds to the ink tank's color.

  5. Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red.


    Ink Tank Lamp
    You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
    • - On: The printer is ready to print.
    • - Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
    • - Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
    • - Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.
  6. Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).

    1. When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam your finger.
    2. When starting printing next time, the print head cleaning launches automatically.

E22 error on Pixma MP210

I had this problem as well. After turning on, there'd eventually be a whirring noise followed up by a "CLUNK" noise, and then I'd get the e22 message. Took it down to a local printer place and the guy had a quick look.

- If you open up the printer so that the ink moves to the left, you should see the white plastic cleaning bed all the way to the right. The guy showed me how this thing can be snapped into an up and down position. Mine was stuck in an up position, therefore after the guy pushed it down everything was hunky dory.

Apparently it was cos the printer needs to do a cleaning cycle before it does anything else, so with the cleaning bed in the stuck position it couldn't do it. Hope this helps.
