As the printer companies do not support refilled cartridges,B cose these cartridges inbuilt sensors which is ink sensitive,Once empty they do not work. Try using new cartridge from canon it should work

It is a shop repair since you have to use Canon diagnostics to reset the count and clear the error. The new part is around $10.00 only.

U051 actually says that the printhead is not installed, or not installed properly. You probably need a new printhead,

It may be the cartridge...try removing it and then reseating it. If that doesn't do it, clean the contacts with water or isopropyl alcohol.(power off when you do this)
Check if it work fine if not try this step:
1, Power off the printer
2, Unplug the printer's power cord, wait 5 seconds then replug the power cord in.
3, Hold the Power button for 6 Beeps
4, Release the Power Button
This will reset the printer and should resolve incorrect cartridge detection problems

Have a canon mp 240 keeps flasing P and 3 and the alarm light and on button are also flashing......what the it wont scan it wont print does any one know what this means


When the Power and Alarm lamps flash alternately, and P and number (error code) are alternately displayed on the LED, an error requiring servicing might have occurred.

Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. Plug the power cord of the machine back in, and then turn on the machine. If the problem is not resolved, contact your Canon service representative.

Error code 6500 flashing


The 6500 error code is a logic board error code. The PCI Bus error is detected by the ASCI. Sounds like it needs new logic board. but i suggest you to first of all you can try to reset your printer -

1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).
2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer.
3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. 
4. Turn the printer back on. If this works you're done, if not try the next step.

1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the paper output tray.
2. Open the top cover and wait until the print head moves to the center.
3. Open the inner cover and check that ink tanks are properly seated.
4. Properly seated
5. Press down on each ink tank until a click is heard.
6. Close the inner cover and top cover

if reset method not works for you then you go for the new logic board replacement .............

Good Luck!!

Thanks

ITs likes its frozen in the error. What can we do to fix this?
