Re: Scanner Cover

Yes. Simply stick some tape onto the cover!


On the opposite side of the menu button (to the inside of the printer) is a double plastic contact. This contact signals the open cover message. Stick some thick tape onto the cover where the contact touches down.

How do i change the ink

First make sure that the printer is on and the document cover of the scanner is closed. Then lift up the entire scanner unit and secure the support (on the right side of the unit). The cartridge carrier should move to where you can reach the cartridges. Wait until this comes to a stop.

Pinch the tabs on the cartridge cover for the cartridge that you want to replace together. (One is at the front of the cover (near you); the other is on the top of the cover part way into the printer.) Then lift up the cover. Pull the old cartridge out. Open your new cartridge and remove the protective tape. (Do not touch the electrical contacts or the print nozzles.)

Push the new cartridge into its slot (just push forward and slightly down. Make sure that the black cartridge is in the right hand slot. Then close the ink cartridge cover and make sure that it clicks into place. The front edge of the cover should end up parallel to the front of the printer.

Repeat this for the other cartridge if needed. Then lift up the scanner unit slightly to release the support and then lower the scanner unit to close the printer. Wait until the printer stops the self-cleaning to recharge the ink system before doing anything else with the printer.

Note: if the scanner unit is open for more than 10 minutes, the cartridge carrier will move to the home position. If this happens, close the printer and then lift up the scanner unit again.

For pictures, see . Alternatively start at: and search for replace ink cartridge.

I hope this helps.

Changing ink instructions canon MP240

With the printer on, open the paper output tray. Then lift up the scanner unit (with the document cover closed). Make sure the support is holding the scanner unit. Then wait until the cartridges move to the replacement area. Pinch the tabs together to open the cartridge locking cover (it just rotates up). Then remove the cartridge by pulling it towards you. Prepare the new cartridge - remove it from the box and remove the orange tape. Do not touch the electrical contacts or the print nozzles.

Slide the new cartridge into the cartridge slot (color on the left). Then close the locking cover - it should click into place. Make sure the cover is correctly closed. Lift the scanner unit to disengage the support and lower the scanner to close it. Wait for the printer to clean the new print heads before sending a new job to the printer. (It will finish printing a job that was in progress when the ink ran out.)

Note: if the scanner unit is open for too long, the cartridges will move to their home position. Close the scanner unit and reopen it.

You can find pictures of the procedure at Canon's support site: . Searach for replace ink cartridge. Altternatively, go to the Brochures and Manuals page and see the manual.

I hope this helps.

Printer will not print showing error 2200. How do l fix it?

This is a scanner error. You could try the following...
Power off and remove the power supply(Power Cord) from the back of the unit.
Open the scanner cover. Check the scanner glass for cracks and the scanner casing for cracks. Close the scanner lid.
Open the top cover
Using the carrier belt, move the cartridge carrier to the middle of the unit.
Remove both cartridges, close the top cover, reinsert the power supply, and power on.
Power off and remove the power supply from the back of the unit.
Open the top cover
Using the carrier belt, move the cartridge carrier to the middle of the unit.
Close the top cover, reinsert the power supply, and power on
Power down as before, do all the same to get the carrier to the middle of the unit and RE-INSTALL THE BLACK CARTRIDGE.
Power back up as in previous steps...
If after trying all of the above and the error message does not go away, you unit would need serviced (if it's under warranty, it's worth it; if not, you might want to replace it.)

I would like to know how to install the cartridges for the x2650?

Make sure the printer is on. Lift the scanner unit to access the cartridge area. The cartridge carrier will automatically move to the center for the loading position.

Press down the carrier levers to open and remove the used cartridges. Load the new cartridges and close the cover. Close the scanner unit.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't position automatically to the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip and gently slide the carrier to the middle of the printer. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Thanks.
