I assume you are using 'compatible' Cartridges ?

Many people have reported problems with the 'chips' (especially the Yellow one) you have to move from the original to the 'compatible' set .

If you are feeling rich, you could buy a set of genuine Canon cartridges, however that's going to cost you over £50 with no guarantee of a fix .. you might want to shop around for a new printer instead - you should be able to find the MP530 for about £150 .... http://www.twenga.co.uk/prices-Pixma-MP530-CANON-Multi-function-printer-16288-0

My printer has an error with error code E42 how can i fix that? pls help..


E42 I believe is a scanner error. Try first to switch it off for 30 minutes and try. Else re-attach the ribbon cables of the scanner and try again.


If error still persist then do a factory reset as per below


1) Switch off the printer

2) Press and hold the Stop/Reset button while switching on the printer.

3) With the Power LED lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.

4) Release the Power button and the Stop/Reset button that will put the printer in service mode. Just wait for the menu selection.

5) When the LED lights in green, press Stop/Reset button to specified number of time(s)
according to the Legend below.

Legend:

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 See waste ink counter reset procedures below.
5 times Orange Destination setting See Destination setting procedures below.

Keep printing test sheets


A lot of HP printers print a page to enable the print head alignment and calabration. This normally orcurs when a cartridge has been changed. If the alignment page fails then it will reprint alignment page until it can align.

So, you need to get that page it prints and place it on the glass and press scan, then it will complete alignment and be ready to rock.

R200 Stopped printing black only


"This printer is less than a year old." Well it is under warranty... have it checked from its vendor, I am sure that it is free. Unless they have a 6-month warranty on you.

How to reset the Canon MP150 after a refill (Step 10 concerns refill; instructions below the steps):
Method1 (Safe Factory Method):
1) Disconnect the printer’s power outlet
2) Press and hold the power button while connecting the power outlet back.
3) While still holding down the power button, press the reset button twice.(red circle with a triangle)
4) Release the power button
The printer takes about 10 seconds to show the number 0.
5) Press + to change the value from 0 to 1.
6) When this value is 1, press colour button; this will light up two leds.
One is for plain paper and the other for photo paper. At this point is feed the printer with paper.
7) Press the power button twice and the printer will print a some stuff (if this page doesn't print by itself, press the "color" button once and the test page will print). Don’t worry much about the printed material. I got some stripped lines and some numbers. I believe that my colour cartridge is clogged which is why I got the green strips.
When you print this sheet the value in the display returns to zero.
8 ) Open the printer cover cover (not the scanner cover) and remove the cartridges. With the printer still open, disconnect the power outlet.
9) Close the lid and turn on the printer.
10) Refill cartridges and place them back in their nice little abode in the printer.
