Hello,

you will have to re-install the printer software in other to resolve this problem. There is an error with the software. reinstalling is certainly going to solve the problem.

Disconnect your printer from your computer, uninstall the printer driver/software from the add/remove program on your control panel, restart your computer and start the installation afresh.

Once the printer software is reinstalled, its going to work well as before.

Good luck.

One of these reset methods should fix the problem

This is the procedure I used for an MP470. It is basically a modified version of that previously posted for the MP460.

1. Disconnect the power cable.
2. Hold down "On/Off" button.
3. Reconnect the power cable.
4. With the power button still down, press the "Stop/Reset" button twice.
5. Release the "On/Off" button.
6. The printer is now in "factory mode".
- wait until "idle" is displayed.
7. Press the right arrow button (next to the "OK" button) repeatedly until "Shipping Mode 3" is displayed.
8. Press the "OK" Button
9. Wait until "Without Cleaning" is displayed and then presss the "Stop/Reset" button once. (I pressed the ok button after Stop/Reset button on my MP470).
10. A test page should print.
11. Open the cover.
- the cartridges should position themselves at the far left - the cartridge removal location.
12. Disconnect the power cable.
13. Remove both cartridges.
14. Close the cover.
15. Reconnect the power cable.
16. Press the "On/Off" button once.

How can i reset the Ink Level on Canon MP240


Here are three methods that have worked on Canon printers. Have no fear. None of these will cause damage if they do not reset the ink counter. Once reset you will have to monitor the cartridges by weight, as the system will always show them to be full.

The first is basically a modified version posted for the MP460.

1. Disconnect the power cable.
2. Hold down "On/Off" button.
3. Reconnect the power cable.
4. With the power button still down, press the "Stop/Reset" button twice.
5. Release the "On/Off" button.
6. The printer is now in "factory mode".
- wait until "idle" is displayed.
7. Press the right arrow button (next to the "OK" button) repeatedly until "Shipping Mode 3" is displayed.
8. Press the "OK" Button
9. Wait until "Without Cleaning" is displayed and then presss the "Stop/Reset" button once. (I pressed the ok button after Stop/Reset button on my MP470 to get the test sheet).
10. A test page should print.
11. Open the cover.
- the cartridges should position themselves at the far left - the cartridge removal location.
12. Disconnect the power cable.
13. Remove both cartridges.
14. Close the cover.
15. Reconnect the power cable.
16. Press the "On/Off" button once.
17. Wait until a "Replace Cartridges" message is displayed.
- insert cartridges.

Since you try to uninstall and reinstall the printer software, do you set up again the printer and try to print again the test page.

Most printer if it is not responding is it due to connection error like cable set up, port driver set up or the configuration of the printer or the print spooler had stop.

Please try hard reset of the printer.

  2. Open the top cover of the printer and remove the print cartridges.
  3. Close the top cover of the printer.
  4. Press the power button on the printer to turn the printer off.
  5. Disconnect the communications, (USB or Parallel), cable from the back of the printer.
  6. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer for one minute.
  7. Reconnect the communications cable to the printer.
  8. Reconnect the power cable to the printer.
  9. Press the printer power button to turn the printer on.
  10. Open the top cover and reinsert the print cartridges.
  11. Close the top cover and print the calibration page.
  12. Restart the computer.

The printer prints a test page everytime i turn the printer on


I had the same problem and it was driving me crazy until I did this. Please follow exactly and IN ORDER.

1. Turn off the printer and wait 10 seconds. Turn it on again

2. Let the printer print the test page.

3. After the test page is printed, disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer to your computer. DO NOT turn off the printer while disconnecting the USB cable.

4. Place the test page on the scanner glass and press the SCAN button on the printer. The ON light will flash as the page is being scanned.

5. Remove the test page when the ON light is steady.

6. Finally, turn off the printer and wait another 10 seconds. Then turn it on again. No more printing test pages!

(You may now reconnect the printer to your computer via the USB cable.)

Ink system failure error 0xc18a0101


I had this problem, was about to buy me a new printer but than found the perfect solution. Just excuse my english (I am German). I have to translate the menue German into English and I hope I do it right.

Push the Setup and the arrow that shows to the left at the same time! Than push ok. A menue opens that says something with support. Push the arrow right button until system configuration appears. open it with the OK button. Now it should show the hardware failure status. If not look for it with the arrow button. When found the hardware failure status, again push OK button. Than something like clear inquiry should appear, push OK. As soon as the "hardware failure status cleared" appears, you can leave the menue by disconnecting the printer from the powercable.
Reconnect it with the powercable and it should work again.
