    thanks steveb, its not actually a scanner issue...nothing works at all-every button pressed gives about5 short quick beeps...like its frozen, but the message says 'scanner error' copy light and error light (and one other) flashing all the time too.   never canon again!!


    are the scanner drivers in the multi or the computer?

Unfortunately (and in common with a lot of other 'all-in-ones') the Scanner will refuse to work unless the printer is fully operational (or at least has Ink).

See if it will perform a photo-copy .. if so, then it's the driver software .. about all I can suggest is re-install the scanner drivers.

It says I have no black ink but it's a new cartridge


I have an MG2560 which did the same thing twice. The first time, there was still a bit of tape on the electronic connections on the ink cartridge. Once I cleaned this off, it worked fine. The second time, no matter what I did, the error message kept saying no black ink. I took the cartridge back to the shop and got another one. I fitted it and the printer worked perfectly.

Cannon Printer mx320 error 5200 wont' restart


Error 5200 unfortunately is a Print head overheat error. Whatever you try to do to fix it will not work unless you replace the print and the main logic board. These two parts HAVE to be replaced as a pair to get the machine to work. However the costs are often more than the machine is worth. To be honest i would scrap it and by another. Its quite an uncommon fault but have seen it before (I am a Canon engineer)

Canon MP210 Third Party Ink Canon Does Not Work!


When the error message comes up, try pressing the "stop/reset" button and holding it down for at least 5 seconds. This works when I get an error message with compatible cartridges (only my error message says the ink is empty - and I know it isn't)

Error message code 2,140,0


I had a similar problem (error Code:2,140,2) in Canon PIXMA MP250 all-in-one, and it was solved when I replaced both ink cartridges which were in low ink (almost without ink). I know an scanner problem is not supposed to be in relation with ink or printer problems, but that's the way I've fixed it. Good luck!

Ink cartridge problem


Complete the following instructions:
  1. Power off your All-in-One.
  2. Use both hands to lift up the scanner unit until the scanner support holds it open.
  3. Turn the All-in-One on. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.
  4. Remove the color print cartridge.
  5. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
  6. If the error message reappears, replace the black print cartridge with a new print cartridge.
    If it does not repeat steps 1-3 and then go to step 7.
  7. Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black print cartridge.
  8. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
  9. If the error message occurs again, replace the color cartridge.
  10. If an error message reappears, repeat steps 1-3 and reinstall both print cartridges.
  11. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
  12. If you receive the error message again, replace both cartridges.
