Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

Scanner malfunction Hi! I have a pixma MP210. The scanner glass is busted and now it gives me error code 24 when starting up. I don't need the scanner so much - just want to print. How can I 'short-circuit' or fool the machine to ignore the scanner part of it? Please write a cc of a reply to hesselhaker@gmail.com. Thank you for your help!

The same thing happened to my canon mp160. I didn't want to risk playing with the wires so i just diligently cleaned out the broken glasses to make sure that the scanner mechanism (the little bar that scans) can move back and forth freely. This essentially makes your machine to operate as normal b/c there's nothing to obstruct the scanning 'bar' from powering up, etc. You might keep on getting error messages, but i was able to override them by holding the reset button and powering the thing on and off. Just making sure that there are no obstructions in the mechanism seems to be the key.

Scanner has a sense to observe ..

Try with normal 2.0 or 2.5 mm. glass (available on store of glass/mirror seller)

The same size cutting is necessary,

What does error code E000202 mean


Hi Osterlie

This error code indicates that the document scanner is not going back to it's initial position or home position as we say , which is to the left of the glass , This happens when it's in the need of lubrication or the rails and cleaning as well.

If not then there is a sensor at the home position which might have got out of position or not working.

Try checking the scanner. Hope it gives you an idea of the problem and answers your question ...
If you need any further clarification don't hesitate to contact me again...:)

What error number is show on printer display? May be a software problem, try to reinstall the printer software. If a ink cartdrige is missing or malfunction all the printer function (including scanner) is unusable, you need to replace the broken cartdrige!

Hi, I need your help with this problem: the Canon MP210 ran out of color ink. I have removed both the cartridge. Anyway, the problem is not in the E5 error. The problem is, that the scanner does not work,...


The scanner and the printer are connected together.Both need initialized for printing or scanning.You can't scan if you haven't cartridges in printer and you can't print if the scanner not initialized.Put cartridges back and press and hold the resume button for 5 seconds.If you still have E5 error that mean you have a defective cartridge and you need to replaced.
