First off, work through these steps to troubleshoot the power cables, even if you feel that they are repetitive. You'd be surprised how often a cord is the issue, even if it appears to be fine. Check the transformer and make sure the power cable is firmly plugged into it.
If you work through that and still have no power, please read through this troubleshooter, verify that your cartridge is installed correctly, and perform a partial reset of the printer (step 7).
If neither solution works in your situation, you may wish to consult the HP support forums and search your printer model number; sometimes specific solutions can be found there for products the HP technicians have devised workarounds for.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Printer claims ink cartridge is expired and won't let me print


Hello, if you change the date on your computer to 3 months previous (say), then reboot, you can probably overcome this temporarily. Obviously, for normal operation it's best to restore the date to current, and only set the date back when you want to print something.Regards,nicam49

Error 5100. the ink cradle moves on start up, the ink cartridges are brand new. Won't print a thing... "Check Printer, Error 5100" Canon MX300. Used once.


You need to reset your printer to remove this error. But first, may I suggest that you remove first your ink cartridge. Clean the contact surface using a cotton bud moistened with alcohol. After cleaning return back the cartridge.

Follow these steps:
1. Turn off the printer
2. Press and hold down the Stop/Reset button and Power button for 5 seconds.
3. While holding the Power button, release the Stop/Reset button.
4. While still holding the Power button, press the Stop/Reset button twice
5. Release Power button (wait till you get the lights)
6. Press the Stop/Reset button 3 times each having a 3 seconds gap. (check whether you are getting the orange light or not)
7. Press the Power button and enter data.
8. Remove the cartridge. Leave it for 20 seconds
9. Press the Power button and shutdown printer.
10. Return cartridge and start the printer.
11. Set the language and country.

After the first reset procedure and there is still an error, do this 2nd reset.
When the error is displayed on the display panel of the printer, 1. Press and Hold the STOP/RESET button and wait until it self restart.
2. Release the STOP/RESET button so printer will completely restart. After this, your printer will print again.

Please give this solution a 4 thumbs up rating.

My canon mx320 multi function printer doesnt want to scan. it shows a U051 code and refuses to work.does a printer need tp have ink to scan?? i dont think so. pl help


Need to reset the cartridge.

How to fix the printing problem when Canon PIXMA MX320 series detected the errors in your cartridge?

After refilling the cartridge, the next thing to do is to reset the cartridge. This will clear your printer from displaying common printer errors like U041, U042, U053, U051 and U052. The importance of the "reset the cartridge" procedure is to avoid the printer from detecting your cartridge as reused one. The steps below is recommended to do after refilling an ink cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer
2. Press and hold the STOP/RESET button
3. Press and hold Power ON button
4. While holding the Power ON button, release the STOP/RESET button
5. While holding still the Power ON button, press twice the STOP/RESET button
6. Release the Power ON button
7. Wait until it display an "idle" message. It will take about a minute.
8. When "idle" appear, open the top cover to expose the cartridges.
9. Lift up the cover for cartridge holder and take out both the black and color cartridges
10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer
11. Return the top cover and turn on the printer again
12. After the printer initialize, return the cartridges.

For error U162 or U163 All functions of the all-in-one printer will stop and your printer will not work.
1. Turn off your printer an turn it on again
2. After the printer initialize try to copy or print. The error will appear.
3. When the error is displayed on the display panel of the printer, Press and Hold the STOP/RESET button and wait until it self restart.
4. Release the STOP/RESET button the the printer is restarting.
5. Wait for a few seconds and the pending print jobs will commence.

Please give this solution a good ratings. thanks

I have canon mp145 printer when power on the error e5 display what is the problem, how to solve.


Hi.. E5 means the cartridge is not installed or the cartridge is not recognized. Here are some possible solutions that will work on your printer.

First step
1. Remove the cartridge and clean the copper surface contact by a moistened cloth. Then return back the cartridge properly, you will hear a snapping sound to tell you its properly seated.

Reset the Printer to clear the error. This is done after refilling the cartridge with ink.
1. Disconnect the printer's power outlet.
2. Press and Hold Power button while connecting the power outlet back.
3. While holding the Power button, Press the Reset button twice (red circle with inverted triangle)
4. Release the power button.. wait until the printer shown number 0
5. Press + to change the value from 0 to 1.
6. when this value is 1, press the color button; this will light up two leds, one is for plain paper and the another for photo paper . at this point is feed the printer with paper.
7. Press the Power button
8. Press the Color button
9. Press the Reset button. The canon will print some stripped lines and some numbers and letters (all black if colored ink is empty). When you print this sheet the value in the display returns to zero.
10. Open the printer cover (not the scanner cover) and remove the cartridges.
11. With the printer stll open, disconnect the power outlet.
12. Close the lid
13. Re-connect the printer to the power outlet and turn on the printer.
14. Open the lid, return the cartridge and wait for the printer until it fully initialize.
Try printing again.

IF another error appears, do this reset.
1. While the errors appear in your printer...Press and Hold the Reset button (red circle with inverted triangle) and wait until it self restart.
2. Release the Reset button when the printer restart.

Take note of this as you will use this everytime you refill the canon cartridge.
Please comeback and rate this answer.

I put new cartridges in my photosmart c7280 printer and keep getting a Wrong Cartridges message. No matter what I try (putting in previous working cartridges, cleaning points) nothing changes. HELP !


Try these 2 procedures:

1/
- Unplug the printer without turning it off.
- Press On for 1O seconds.
- Release the button and replug the printer.

2/

(Careful, this will erase the printer's memory, like printing queues etc.)
- Unplug the printer.
- Press simultaneously "#" and "6" and keep these buttons pressed.
- Replug the printer without releasing these buttons.
- The display will say " Stop " or something like this, then "semi full reset" . Release the buttons now.
- Start the printer now. It will ask you to set the language and the country. If it doesn't, repeat all steps.
