Question about Canon PIXMA MP240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

How do I reset my Canon pixma mp240 to factory settings including ink cartridge alignments?The alignment of at least one setting is so far off that the little block looks solid when printing the test page, but when actually printing, it is obvious that one of the settings is off by the width of a line.

SOURCE: Alignment of printhead on Canon Pixma iP4600

This is simply a case of the ink tanks not being pressed in hard enough. They do click in, as the manual instructs but, unless they are fully pressed in top and bottom, this problem occurs. It's a shame that the Canon manuals and even the support centre do not mention this simple solution.

SOURCE: Canon pixma mp240 ink reset

Thats funny, cause I took the cartridges out and left the lid up, unplugged it, plugged it back in with my finger on the power button and tapped the stop/reset button twice. Put the cartridges in, pressed the color start, after some moaning a test page printed. I unplugged it again, plugged it back in and I had full ink Levels!!!

Canon mx330 how to change ink cartridges


Use the thumb drill to literally drill a hole into the side of the old cartridge. Make sure to chose a location that's closer to the top of the ink cartridge to avoid over spillage when you add the new ink. Once you have the hole just squeeze in some ink of corresponding color into the hole. Not a huge amount, but enough to get some use out of it before the next refill. I highly recommend covering the hole afterward with a sticker or something so that you don't dry out the cartride. Reinsert the cartridge into the printer and use. (: All set!

*Note: You may have to reset the count on the cartridge to avoid getting messages that the ink need to be changed. From here on in, use your eyes to determine if the cartridge needs a refill (:

Your printer must have ink in both cartridges, even if you only want to print black text. You may be out of ink. The second thing is you might have to align the print head. You can do that through Windows control panel > printers.

Canon mp240 error code 5 does not clear with the holding down stop/resent, starting and stopping on button as explained in earlier advice


E 4 or E5 for PIXMA is ink cartridge not recognised by printer. Try to take out ink cartridge (one by one) and check the brass connectors (at cartridge and the printer ink holder). If nothing suspicious, put cartridge back gently in and close lock firmly. Normally have to do this 2 - 3 times. If problem still occurs a simple trick put a piece of paper (with a bit of thickness) before locking the ink holder. Detail tutorials available here. Problem is due to the cartridge and ink holder connectors not aligning properly between one another.
