Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

No print on Canon Pixma MP150

Hi. When I click print then this info pops up: You cannot print as either your cartridge is placed in the wrong place or you usr wrong type of cartridge. On the LCD: E and 5 is flashing, and the yellow ligt with the triangle is on constantly, and the yellow B and C lights are flashing.
And in fact I always use the same type of cartridge, made sure there is enough ink in it, and made sure is place correctly. What do you think might be the problem? Please halp. Thank you.

My PIXMA MP150 will not scan and keeps flashing on B any ideas???

if it will still print I have no idea but if not it probably means there is something wrong with your black cartridge - a lot of these printers need both cartridges working before they will even scan

I just put in ink cartridges for my canon pixmamp150 when I turn it on the E and number 5 flashes, I cannot get it to print

E, 5 error is definitely about your cartridges, either:
1) wrong cartridge installed (or cartridge not supported)
2) right cartridge, wrong slot
3) forgot to take off the tapes
4) not properly seated (they click into place)

Trouble reloading new cartridges

They cannot be left loose. Did you remove the tapes before installing? Are they the correct cartridges for your MP150?

1) Your printer must be on.
2) The cartridge holder must move to the replacement position before you begin.
3) Push in and up until they click into place.
4) Black in the left slot, Color in the right

Can't print after refilling cartridges

Try holding the "resume" button (triangle in circle) for 5-10 sec for each cartridge. That should reset them. If that doesn't work, remove the cartridges and gently wipe the electric circuit on the cartridges with a dry cloth. Put them back in. If nothing works, you might need to replace them.
