Unhook the printer then take out the new cartridges.
try to very gently clean the contacts also make sure the contact on the new cartridges is clean.
Let it dry for a few minutes assembly.
Plug it. My printer is reset by pressing the start button and hold it down until it beeps 6 times.
You can check your manual how to reset yours.

Error 6000 tells you that the paper feed roller is not turning, check for any foreign oblects in the paper path, a flashlight and small mirror is the best way to look.

SOURCE: Canon MP530 print head malfunction

I had the same problem with my printer. There is a switch that tells the printer that the cover is open or closed. Unplug the printer. Open up the printer cover and look on the inside right side edge. About half way back, you'll see a 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch hole where this switch resides. If you put your finger into it, you may be able to push on a lever and it will go down. It should spring back up when you pull your finger out. If you can feel the lever but it just sits at the bottom then there either this lever is broken or the spring fell off.

The problem with my printer was the spring had popped out. To access the switch, you'll need to remove the right side cover. Do this by removing the two screws in the back on the right side. Open the printer cover and find the third screw. It is located on the right hand side, near the front of the printer, on the top. Remove this screw and pop out the cover and see if you can find the spring that is attached to the lever. Make sure you do this in an area that if a small piece fell out you could find it.

Look at the switch and lever. If there is no spring attached to the lever then it is most likely the problem, otherwise the switch may be bad or the electronics inside the printer. There is a hook on the lever and one on the printer. Reconnect the spring and it should fix the problem. I found my spring had completely fallen out and fell on the floor when the cover was opened. It is possible that this spring if fallen out can fall back inside the printer so you may have to shake the printer to find this little spring. It is about 1/2 inch long. Hope this helps.

I tried to install non-genuine ink cartridges into my Canon MG5150 and now it wont work. It comes up with "B200 printer error unplug and contact service centre" How can i get it working again?


I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with this ink cartridge.
There may be several reasons for the problem.
Lets start out by installing the old ink cartridge if you have it. If you have the old cartidge and reinstall it and don't get the error than I would suggest purchasing another replacment cartridge. IF you still get the error with the old ink cartridge than you will need to send your printer off for service. ( i suggest purchasing a new printer before paying for service.)
Also most of the printer companies have install RFID chips in ink cartridges, So unless its a factory ink cartridge it may note actually work in your printer.
Canon, Lexmark, and HP all use RFID ( radio frequency identification) This prevents you from purchasing cheaper cartridges so you are left with either refilling you old cartridges or purchasing OE ( original Equipment).
I hope this helps you with your problem, feel fee to let me know if there is more I can do for you.

I cannot stop the ink cartridge holder to stop in the correct positioo to replace the cartridges on my epsom cx5500 printer


Hello jgw_cansdale,
Welcome to Fixya.com!
If the Ink light (fon3_66.gif) is flashing that means one or more of your ink cartridge is low on ink, and if it's steady it means one or more is out of ink. For Epson printers, there are lots of ways to identify whether your printer is out or low on ink. For today let's just stick with the printer itself.\
Remember: A flashing fon3_66.gif means LOW ON INK, and a steady fon3_66.gifmeans OUT OF INK.
1. Open the scanner bed by lifting it up just like opening a brief case. By doing this you should now be able to see the carrier area this is the area were the ink carrier or ink holder moves left and right,
2. Press the Ink button. Now remember flashing means LOW and steady means OUT of ink.
If the Ink light is flashing, and you pressed the Ink button the carrier or ink hold will move under a small arrow just right above the carrier to point to you which ink cartridge is low on ink. pressing it again will point to another if you have multiple cartridges that are running low, if not it moves directly to the ink cartridge replacement area were you can pop the carrier's lid open to access the inks.
If the Ink light is steady, and you pressed the Ink button the carrier or ink hold will move under a small arrow just right above the carrier to point to you which ink cartridge is out of ink. pressing it again will point to another if you have multiple cartridges that are out of ink, if not it moves directly to the ink cartridge replacement area were you can pop the carrier's lid open to access the inks.

The error 6A81 comes up on the sml screen of my canon PIXMA MG5150 It suggests to turn it off and on again which I've done but the same error comes up????


This is a purge unit error. There maybe something jamming the purge unit or just a absorber out of place which is picking up on the carriage preventing it from moving correctly. if you can move the carriage away from the purge (its where the printhead/carriage parks its self on the right side of the machine) with no resistance then you can shine a torch into the machine and look at the purge unit. there maybe crumpled paper jammed in the purge. If all looks well then the purge may need replacing. Lastly the wiper on the purge may have stuck. It slides back and forth and they have been known to stick. just push it with a long screwdriver to see it it moves.

Good luck

EPSON C60 RED LIGHT FLASHING ON CENTRE BUTTON CANT STOP IT


shellnbarry, As I stated in a previous post the red light flashing means an ink cartrdge is low but not empty. When the red light stays on it means an ink cartridge is empty. You can continue to use the printer until the red light stays on.

I have a canon bjc 3000 printer and cannot print...it is flashing 4 orange lights followed by a solid green light...please help


Four orange flashes means the cartridge is out of ink. The ink cartridge itself is the BC-33, and it contains four ink tanks, BCI-3B, BCI-3C, BCI-3M, and BCI-3Y. If the printer had been working properly up until this point, check each of the ink tanks (they unlatch and come out of the cartridge) and replace just the empty one(s). If all the tanks have ink in them, it indicates the cartridge itself is bad, and you will have to replace the entire cartridge.

Flashing light indicators for replacing ink cartridges.


If the light is flashing no matter the speed, remove the cartridge and inspect it. If it is low you may still be able to print some more, but if it's small ink well is empty you will not be able to print even in black only until you replace the cartridge. Hope this helps.
