    We think we have the black cartridge in correctly, but if we pushed any harder to get the color cartridge to snap in, we would have to stand on it.  Four people have tried.  I am afraid we will snap or crack the housing (track) for it. Are we doing something wrong?  The pictures are not helpful on the instruction page.  JJ

Oh my goodess! I did get the cartridge in finally but I had to take the previous advice and add to it. : ) I turned the printer on... and the old cartridge came into position on the left where you're supposed to click it out and click the new one in ... but it quickly moved back to the right out of sight. The only way I got it to stop on the left where I could click the old one out and the new one in was to
Absolutely crazy there's such a complication with merely putting a new cartridge in this machine.
Hope this helps you and many others.

Hours later- in small writing you got to turn it off then on, open it up and then you'll see the thing you got to click the ink cartridges making it's way to the left, then all you have to do is follow instructions- comical actually..

My MP 210 is not scanning it shows an E 5 on the little screen but doesnt scan

Turn off the canon printer
Hold the Resume Button (red circle in the triangle), add a printer (click "Power") an indicator light green.
Hold the Power Button, release the Resume Button.
Not releasing the Power Button, double click "Resume" and release Both Buttons.
Click "Resume" for Four times
Once you click "Power", to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber). Power down printer . Then power back up. E5 error - The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly.

How do I install ink in MP 210?

Open the cover of your printer and wait the cartridge are in the center. When the cartridge go to the center that's the time you remove the cartridge. To remove the cartridge just push the cartridge downward until it clicks into place. To replace the cartridge just push upward until it clicks into place. Then close the cover and try to print.
