Cannon MP 270 stuck with the error message

I was using it as a copier and it got an error but when that was sorted it wouldn't stop flashing the number of copies left and E. I have used the red reset button to no avail. Left it un plugged for well over a week but it still wont clear and can't be used till it does. I can't find a real reset button on it but can you help please?

Will the ink cartridges move to the center?
If so take them out and unplug the machine for 30 minutes.
Plug it back in.
Hopefully this will reset it to thinking it is a new machine.

SOURCE: Drum life low replace soon Error Message

I already answered this at some other place here - but just to make sure the word gets out there:

There is a little special (white) gear on the outer left side of the drumkit - a little bit below where the toner sits. That gear joins with toner assembly - and you can rotate it counterclockwise all the way back. This should reset the drum counter - worked for me!

I hope it also does the trick for you ;-)

That error code refers to the FUSING WEB END.
First of all you must see if the fusing web is end.
If the error occurs before the web ended you have to upgrade your firmware. There is a release firmware that corrects this symptom.

How do i rest my cannon pixma mp 220

I would imagine the error message is asking you to hold down the reset button of your printer for 5 seconds due to a low ink estimate with these refilled cartridges. If this is the case the STOP/RESET/RESUME button is represented by an upside-down triangle in a circle and is normally red or grey.

More information on this error message can be found here.

Hope this helps.

I have a cannon MP 510. When I turn it on, the carriage slams right and left. Then the lights on the front flash Green (left) Orange (right), Green (left) and Orange (right), then stops flashing for a...

I suspect you had a paper jam and removed it from under the main cover. It sounds like you have got grease on the encoder strip (the long blackish plastic strip that runs the full width of the machine. The carriage looks at the encoder so it knows where it is. Clean the encoder with soapy water on a cotton bud. You may have even snapped the encoder which will mean you will need a new one.
Good luck

My cannon mp 270 printer error 5200. i m olready change ink

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts
