E2 just says load paper and press continue, sounds like it wants to print with the new ink and just needs paper.

SOURCE: Changed black ink cartridge. Closed machine up.

Hi,

I am sorry, however this error is no related to print head. So, why did you replace print head?

This error means "Ink Detection Waste Ink Tank Full"
You need to replace the ink pad and reset the eeprom counter to 0.

You could try to reset it :-

1. Printer ‘on.’
2. Press: “Additional Functions” button
Press “Scan” button
Press “Copy” button
Press “Scan” button
3. Now it says, “Service Mode / #1 SSSW.
4. Keep hitting “+” [which is the right arrow]; it will go through #1 to #11 (Date/Time), then “Service Report,” and, lastly, “Test Mode.” Then hit “Set.”
5. Now you will have another set of selections. Keep hitting “+” [the right arrow] to go from #1(DRAM) to #8 (Printer Test). Then hit “Set.”
6. When it finishes some sort of function, “Please Wait” will be replaced by “-8-2+” Then hit “+” and it should then say “-8-3+” and you hit “Set.”
7. The screen should now say “EEPROM Clear.” [You may need to press “Set” then, to get to the next step? My notes aren’t clear.]
8. Option 0 should be “select ink count.” Press “Set.”
9. Press the “Stop/Reset” button.
10. Press the “On/Off” button.
11. Wait for the printer to restart.

You could have the complete service manual from :-

http://soft-manufaktura.ru/manual/hp/mp390sm.pdf

You need to have acrobat reader to view the file.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help


  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    Alarm message says "cartridge jammed". Does that


    What you see moving is the print carriage. The carriage moves the cartridge, adjacent to the printhead, back and forth.
    Although the carriage is moving, the ink cartridge can not dispense ink because an obstruction is
    blocking the path of the ink.
    Remove the ink cartridges, inspect the cartridges as well as the cartridge holders for any foreign debris and reinstall.
    If the alarm message continues, I suggest changing the ink cartridges.

    I replaced the color ink cartridge. Now there is an "E" flashing alternately with a "5". The alarm light is on steadily, and the black ink and color ink lights are flashing. How do I...


    E5 is a Cartridge cannot be recognized error.
    Reinstalling the cartridge could clear the alarm.
    If this does not work,
    Removed both ink cartridges.
    Turn off printer and unplug fron electrical outlet.
    Wait at least 5 minutes.
    This will let the printer reset itself.
    Plug printer back in and turn on.
    Printer will cycle and an E5 will appear.
    Installed back ink cartridges.

    I only want to scan but need a new cartridge - do i have to replace cartridge before scanning is enabled.


    You will need a new cartridge before you can scan.
    What you could try is to remove both ink cartridges.
    Turn printer off and unplug from outlet.
    Wait at least 30 minutes, this will let the printer to reset
    Turn your ink cartridge upside down for 2 minutes before installing.
    This will let some of the ink from the bottom to reach the printhead.
    Plug printer back in and turn on and install ink cartridges.
    This might work if your printer only detected a low ink condition at first.
    For the scanner to work, the printer must have no alarm.

    Alarm lights keep blinking after I changed my printer ink.


    E5 means cartridges error - to fix press the "stop\reset" button for 5-7 seconds and then release it.

    You can also try this:

    1) With the printer power turned off but connected to a power source, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button.
    (DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

    2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power button.)

    3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and
    Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light
    alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

    4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the specified number of time(s)according to the function listed in the table below. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and
    Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

    I CHANGED MY PIXMA INK CARTRIDGE AND HOW TO RESTART?


    Here's what you can do....

    METHOD #1 - Easiest, but it disables the ink tank level indicators.
    1) Ignore the low ink indicator, and press the RESET BUTTON to continue printing. If you press and hold the reset button for 5+ seconds, it will disable the counter for that particular ink tank. Refill tank now.

    2) Repeat as needed.
    You will get a dire warning that this will void you warranty, blah blah blah. If you do need to take your printer in during warranty and you've disabled ink tank counting, simple reset the entire printer as describe below for the wate tank warning, and nobody will ever know. SAVE YOUR CANON CARTS with a bit of ink left in- your printer will need to have Canon carts installed for warranty service.

    3) Eventually you may be warned that the tank is empty. Press reset as above to disable and continue printing.

    If you think this entire thing is ridiculous- you are right.
    Get an earlier model that takes un-chip carts, like an ip6000, or ip3000, or i960. Much simpler and you get to use the ink tank indicators after refilling.

    ************

    You can reset the entire printer with the WASTE TANK reset (below) when you need to clean or change the waste tank PAD (its really not a tank) See the above instructions for the i960 and similar for other Canon printer waste tank changes.
    Here's the ip4200 reset options:
    1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing
    the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power
    button. (DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED
    lights in green to indicate that a function is
    selectable.)

    2) While holding the Power button, release the
    resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power
    button.)

    3) While holding the Power button, press the
    Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both
    the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the

    Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and
    Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power
    in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

    4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the
    Resume/Cancel button the specified number of
    time(s)
    setting).

    Time(s) LED indication Function Remarks
    0 times Green (Power) Power off When the print head is
