Try striking the keys not just pressing them a quick stroke and lifting motion like touching something hot

When typing the letters pile up on each other


Most likely it needs lubrication. WD40 is a wonderful thing. Make sure that you put rags under the typewriter to catch the mess. As you press keys and the space bar, spray under the platen as it moves. You want to lube the escapement and the rails. When finished, use denatured alcohol to clean the platen and rollers. (But try really hard NOT to get WD40 on the rollers or the platen. The rollers can be hard to get to). DO NOT do this if this is an electric. They have a rolling platen under the typewriter to provide movement to the keys, etc. If the roller gets oil on it, it will stop working! You can keep cleaning the roller, but as the oil keeps dripping on the roller, all the movements will slip. Eventually you might get it clean, but it is a pain.

The screen is really dark


Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard. It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters. Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard. These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F6 and F7. They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness. Hold down the Fn key while pressing F7, or whichever "F" key your laptop uses to increase brightness. Tap F7 repeatedly until you reach the desired brightness. Fn must be held down as you continue to tap. Hope this helps.

Key disabled message


The Down Arrow and the View buttons are disabled on the T6050 as default because reverse paper feeding is not recommended on the T6050 printer because they only have one pair of tractors which are mounted above the platen. If the printer tries to reverse feed paper, it could cause a paper jam unless the platen gap is open sufficiently to allow the paper to feed down through the gap unhindered.
You can enable reverse paper feeding if you are sure that a paper jam will not occur. This is done as follows. Set the printer to Offline. Press the Mode key: display will show Offline Normal. Press any Arrow key until display shows Offline Oper. Press the Forms/1 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows Oper Forms. Press the CPI/2 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows Forms RevPap. Press the LPI/3 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows RevPap Enabled. Press the Enter key and reverse feeding will be set. Set the printer to Online. Once the reverse paper function has been enabled this option will need to be saved to prevent the setting being lost when the printer is powered off. To save the Menu Configuration; Put the printer OFFLINE Press the MODE button, then press the DOWN ARROW until CONFIG is displayed Press FORMS/1, then press the DOWN ARROW until PRINTER is displayed Press CPI/2, then press the DOWN ARROW until SAVE is displayed Press LPI/3, and with POWERUP shown in the display, press ENTER.

E8 Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full WHAT MUST DO?


I am told that this will reset your counter and eliminate the full absorber warning that you are getting.

Cleaning the pads is messy, sending the printer to Canon is expensive,

I used a simular reset code for my MP470 and haven't had any problems.

1. To clean physical pads:
Open cover (as if replacing ink cartridge).
Locate waste ink pads, they are far right under cartridge slider.
Pry up waste ink pads (inky, might want to wear gloves).
Rinse pads in sink or with alcohol, dry.
Replace pads. Make sure pads are fully seated.

2. To reset waste ink counter:
Press Menu-Scan-Copy-Scan to enter service menu.
Use arrow keys to scroll to "Service menu counter access".
Press OK.
Use arrow keys to scroll to "ABS-M DOT COUNT"
Press Copy.
Use arrow keys to reset count to zero.
Press OK.
Press Stop/Reset.

Ink absorber is full.... what will i do.


When you get the warning that the ink absorber tank is full, leave your printer on!, open the front of the printer and the cartridges will move to the centre, at this point look into the printer and down in the far right bottom area you will see(you may need a small torch if in a dark room) two small rectangular sponge pads in a black plastic caddy, this is the "absorber ink tank" all you do is carfully hold a folded sheet of kitchen paper on the two sponges, this will soak up the excess ink, keep doing this until the your paper kitch towel has removed all the ink it can. Now, (with the Canon Pixma mp110 anyway), you need to reset the abs-m level as follows:- with the printer on press MENU-SCAN-COPY-SCAN this will enter the "service menu", click the + or - arrow key until you get to NVRAM ACCESS? then click ok, now click on one of the arrow keys until you get to ABS-M LEVE now click ok and you will see SET ABS-M use the arrow keys to set the level to 0 press ok and turn your printrer off!. Now you can turn your printer back on and all should be fine!. pcdcool.
