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

Pixma MP150 won't print

I guess I must say I upgraded my OS Tiger to 10.4.11 and after that my printer stopped working.
I can get it to do maintenance printing but it won't print from any document. I have uninstalled (as best I know how) and reinstalled the MP Navigator, I have installed the newest drivers from Canon and it still won't work!
When I try to print I only get "Error while printing" no numbers.

Also, if I try to open MP Navigator from Applications I get an error "Insufficient disc space", which is incorrect, by the way, and it just quits. Please, help.

Re: Pixma MP150 won't print

I cant help you with your problem completely but every time i change the ink the printer states to install the correct cartridges and or that my ink level is low and will not print

all previous occasions with the cannon mp150/160 if there's such a word as stubborn can apply to computer printers i have had to keep rebooting the programming that is switching off and on at length the power supply until the printer finally works or offers the alternative message to press the start button

i have 2 cannon printers mp150 and mp160 because it is just about the same price to buy a new printer than 2 new cartridges

keep rebooting it may take up to 15-30 minutes!

You should check the ink level.
Open the [Printer Properties] dialog box. Click the [Maintenance] tab and click [View Printer Status].

If the "?" mark appears then you have to disable the low ink warning. If something else appears please let me know.

The reset procedure is this:
1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding
the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a
service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the on/off lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button the specified number of time(s) according to the
function listed in the table below.(Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in
orange and green, starting with orange.)

note: press 3 times for EEPROM reset

The number of the Reset

0 time Green Power off
1 time Orange Service pattern print
2 times Green EEPROM print
3 times Orange EEPROM reset
4 times Green Waste ink counter reset

5) Turn off the printer.( it must be turn off)

Starts to feed paper and then stops and says it is jammed, it's not.

We have become aware of an incompatibility between the ZoomAlbum software and the Canon PIXMA printers listed below. This issue applies only when using the ZoomAlbum software to print Photo Album covers with Mac OS X.
Affected Models
PIXMA MP240, MP250, MP480, MP490, MP560, MP620, MP640, MP980, MP990, MX320, MX330, MX860, iP3600, iP4600, iP4700 Printers
The affected PIXMA printers are designed to feed paper via the rear tray with a center-feed mechanism and two paper guides. However, the ZoomAlbum software was intended to feed paper from the rear tray in printers with a right-feed mechanism and a single paper guide. As a result, when using the ZoomAlbum software with Mac OS X to print Photo Album covers with the affected Canon PIXMA printers, the printed image may shift.
adv_zoomalbum_1.jpg Countermeasure
To remedy this problem, please use the following settings when printing Photo Album covers with Mac OS X:
1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Print & Fax
3. Select your Canon PIXMA printer as the default printer
4. Select DL Envelope for Default Paper Size in Page Setup
Note: Be sure to change the Default Paper Size back to Letter after printing the cover.
