SOURCE: Canon Pixma MP150 Error code E 42

Had exact same problem. Scanner light should come on at power up. Found ribbon cable connecting scanner unit to base had come unplugged from socket on circuit board. The ribbon cable is one of three found near back hinge of scanner and is hidden underneath the other two. It should drape over the edge of circuit board and then plug into small recepticle on inner side of board. I plugged it in and printer works again. Hope this helps.

You need to carefully clean the encoder strip. It's the clear strip behind the carriage that runs all the way from right to left. A damp Q-tip should remove any grease or fingerprints.

SOURCE: my canon mp240 printer will not scan

It won't scan unless it's connected to a computer, and has the scan software running. Will it copy a document on the glass?

You need to down load the full feature package to make the scanner work.
Remember to select the windows you are running 32 or 64 bit version.

Good luck.

I have canon ir3750. When I switch on the machine it goes to the start screen , The screen displays wait message, for about 3 minutes and than nothing happens and then the error code message comes up...


This is an error in the communication with the scanner. Check or reseat the connectors from the scanner , check to see if the scanner even moves during initialization ( power supply for it may be bad ), check/replace reader controller, scanner board, or main controller of copier. I've not seen this error before. Good luck.

Amber and green light keep flashing back and forth, not printing. I tried rebooting, nothing happens


Switch off the printer and disconnect from the power supply. Leave for 10 minutes and then try powering up again from cold. If you are still getting flashing lights please count the number of each flash and repost

My Canon MP480 is giving me the 'error 5100' screen and will not print. how do I fix this?


Hi,
  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

Good Luck!

This could be a problem with the power adapter of the printer. get an expert to check out the power adpter if it was connected to an unprotected power source.

I can't install the cd rom on my computer i have a macproduct is pixma mp480


I don't know if I understood your problem correctly: you have a Canon Pixma MP480 and you want to install it in a computer with MAC OS and the CD that came with the printer is for Windows systems?

CANON has drivers and software available for your printer and MAC OS X. You can dowload them from PIXMA MP480 Photo All-In-One-Printer support homepage .

On that page, clickon the "Drivers & Downloads" tab and then select your operating system to get a list of compatible drivers, sofware and manuals.
Download the printer and scanner drivers compatible with your system, from "Drivers" section and select and download the software you need from the 'Software section".
For help and troubleshooting installation issues, click on 'Support & Service".
If I misunderstood your post and you have a different problem, please comment and I will try to help more.
