It may happen due to printer head error, please follow the steps mentioned below:

  • 1. Check the "Alarm/Power" light and count the number of times it's flashing to determine if there is a print head error.
  • 2 Open the printer cover and allow the printer cartridges to center. Remove all the ink tanks. Unclip the print head with the blue lever and re-seat it. Snap it in, put the tanks back in, and close the lid. Turn the printer off and then on again.
  • 3 Run a print test to verify the print quality is acceptable and that the ink is ejecting satisfactorily from the nozzles. Press and hold the "Resume/Cancel" button. The power lamp will flash twice. Release the button and the test page will print. Take a look at the output.
  • 4 Perform deep cleaning if the output in the test is unacceptable. Enter the printer properties dialog box in the "Printers" folder on the computer and choose the "Maintenance" tab from the printer properties dialog box. Choose "Deep Cleaning" and then "Execute." Perform deep cleaning a couple of times if necessary.
  • 5 Replace the ink cartridge if you continue to get unsatisfactory results for a particular color ink. Open the lid, allow the print head to center. Remove the ink cartridge. Insert a new one into the printer. Close the cover and allow the printer to reset itself.

  • Thanks and regards,

    My canon MP560 series has an error. it says an error has ocurred .Turn off the printer then back on again.If problem persists see the manual.I have done what has been asked me to do but it is not working....

    Your computer will be showing an error code, probably 4 digits. Also the green and orange lamps will be flashing in a set sequence, ie green flashes 4 times and orange 5 times. the sequence of flashing lights is more accurate than the error code.Please come back and tell us what they are.

    Canon mp560.. I have replaced the head and it is still printing blank pages. Is it something to do with the purge thingy??

    Try accessing the menu on the printer and it should have some printer options that you can use to tell the printer you installed a new cartridge

    Message on my window: Error - The feeder cover is open. The printer is new to me. I don't even know what the feeder cover is. Have tried to close all apparent "covers." Help

    here is a website that tells how to correct jams and also shows some pictures of all the door openings, It sounds like the cover that holds you bulk paper, sometimes there is a lid on top of it. it may not be seated properly.
    hope this helps

    My Canon Mp560 wont print because one of the black cartridges does not have ink although the others do. and i want to print but it is telling me that i need to change that one cartridge. please help!

    This printer has and ink flow detection system to prevent "dry-firing" of the printhead which can cause damage. You will have to replace the cartridge in order to print on this model.
