SOURCE: Canon MP 210 gives E5

In fact the noise/E52 service problem might be easy to fix:
You just have to oil the mirror motor shaft in the laser unit.

Step-by-step instruction:

1 – Remove gently the top cover of the printer ( 4 screws – 2 on top/front + 2 in back/side).
2 – Be careful with the connectors going to the top LCD panel. You might want to disconnect the shorter one.
3 – Remove the laser unit located on top of the printer covered by a steel plate. 

To do that:
1 – Unplug (pull) the white flat connector going to the left side of the laser unit.
2 – Unscrew the 3 screws keeping the laser unit in place.
3 – The lower/right screw also maintains in place the second connector going to the unit. Remove it and unplug (pull) the connector.
4 – Squeeze out the laser unit from under the wires (going back and up).

You now have the laser unit outside of the printer.
1 - Remove the steel plate of the laser unit. There is a plastic shutter that will come loose. Don’t loose it and take note of its location in case you need to put it back.
2 – Unscrew the 4 screws maintaining the motor section and remove it.
3 – There is a small piece of black plastic that maintains the top part of the motor unit (with the mirrors) on the left side of the board. Twist it and remove it.
4 – Pull up the mirror part. 
5 – Be careful during all that not to touch any of the mirrors or prism or whatever seems to conduct light. If you do, you can always clean with isopropyl alcohol or glasses solution.
6 – Put some sewing machine oil on the shaft. Juuuust a little. I used machine oil SAE 20 or 40 (not sure – I didn’t look). WD40 would probably work also. Again, not too much – wipe the excess.
7 – Put everything back together.

good luck

SOURCE: does not print error b200

Helo, found on web. Good Luck :0)

The error code is standard for many of the late model MPxxx printers. The B200 error is "Printhead Temperature exceeded", What this means that while you were printing some document, either one or more of the printhead ink wells ran out of ink and the printing continued. Printhing without ink in the wells will OVERHEAT THE PRINTHEAD NOZZLES and can potentially burn the out. The printer has a built in temperature sensor to detect the ambient temperature and to monitor the temperature of the head. This data is always collected and monitored and saved in the EEprom data and the Service Test print data.

If the error will not go away once you have unplugged the priner for at least 5 minutes, then there is the possibility that you have already burnt out the head. Remove the printhead and use a 5x magnification glass to look VERY CLOSE at all of the nozzles to see if you can detect any possible burnt out nozzle.

It many come down to need a new printhead.

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Canon MP 270 spooler problems paper jam problems scanning probs


I have had problems with this printer, too. See my Amazon review here:

(Mine is the second one down).

The Canon MP270 does seem to have a few problems. It's not one of Canon's finest products, to say the least. It seems to be getting a reputation for problems, problems...

I gave up and bought a HP Deskjet printer instead. I know that's not a fix, but I found it was the best solution!

We just received some used Canon Image runner 1310 copier/printer and I not have it hooked up to my computer. It is printing just a little off....it slants to one side. Any idea's why?


hi, wel now that you have two questions i still working on your first :P

this copier may only take paper from two diferent trays.
one is named the multi-purpose tray an dthe other just the cassette.
so i gathered you want to print using the MP tray, right? to copy from the bypass (or MP) tray, just choose it using the paper select button (take a look at the panel, there's a button that actually says 'paper select') . now if you want to print from it, go to your printer settings and change the default paper source to the mp tray.

about the other problem im still trying to figure out your problem.
