Dear cappina,
Error code E16 indicates that remaining ink is unknown. It is common problem in refilling the cartridge. To fix this problem you need to deactivate ink level detection function. Follow this procedure: press and hold STOP/RESET button for about 9 seconds or more then release it. Now E16 has disappeared and the printer should work properly. As consequence, ink volume in panel become UNKNOWN. No problem. It will be back to normal condition when you replace the cartridge with new one.

Hi. This might be stating the obvious, but try cleaning the contacts in the printer and on the cartridge with isopropal alcohol. I have a Canon Pixma MP520 which I have had for most of this year now, and it works fine. I am not sure if I will be buying another Canon printer after the problems I have just read on FixYa though! Another thing you might try is carefully bending the contacts on the printer that touch the copper strips on the cartridge to ensure they touch properly. I have not looked too closely at mine, but I presume there must be copper contacts of some sort that are spring loaded, which press up against the contacts on the cartridge when it is installed. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: E22 error on Pixma MP210

I had this problem as well. After turning on, there'd eventually be a whirring noise followed up by a "CLUNK" noise, and then I'd get the e22 message. Took it down to a local printer place and the guy had a quick look.

- If you open up the printer so that the ink moves to the left, you should see the white plastic cleaning bed all the way to the right. The guy showed me how this thing can be snapped into an up and down position. Mine was stuck in an up position, therefore after the guy pushed it down everything was hunky dory.

Apparently it was cos the printer needs to do a cleaning cycle before it does anything else, so with the cleaning bed in the stuck position it couldn't do it. Hope this helps.

I installed the drivers for a canon pixma mp210 and it wont scan. it keeps saying " E 1 6"

"E 1 6" error code means Ink has run out.

Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).

If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.

The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.

Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

Error message that blinks E 1 6. Help!

This error indicates replacement of ink cartridge. You can try to reset the printer by turning power off and then switch it on after 20 seconds. If this works, great, else you will have to get new ink cartridge.

Scanning problem

For scanning, the printer need the cartridges in place. So the best thing is to place your cartridges back in the printer ( even if the are empty).You can refill the cartridges but the niveau wil still be empty. To print again, press the paperfeed button at least for 5 seconds. Now everything wil work fine again, except the inkniveau meter. So dont print when one color is empty.good luck.
