Why is my pixma mp 240 flashing "alarm" and "color" with a 5 (or S ?) in the window next to the on button. I have one black ink cartridge properly installed. The problem begins when I push the black start...


Error 5: The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine. Open the Scanning Unit (Cover) and install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If the error is not resolved, the FINE Cartridge may be damaged. Contact your Canon service representative.

Error Code 5 on Canon MP160 Printer


your problem is waste ink absorber is full,you need the canon mp tool which is use to reset the counter of your printer,but you must dismantle your printer to clean the waste absorber because if you will reset the counter without cleaning it, all waste ink will overflow on your printer.

Do I have to install a color cartirdge (CL-41)?


Some will allow printing with just black & others will not. You may need to put a color cartridge in to print. Check your owners manual or canon website to make sure but if you do need a color cartridge you can buy a generic brand that works with your printer to save some $$. Hope this helps.

Canon mp 150 error 5


Our pixma MP150 printer has a flashing E and flashing 5, also flashing on alarm, black ink and color ink. We have replaced the ink cartridges but nothing happens. They were empty. The printer doesnt recognize that the cartridges are there. We have tried unplugging the cords and taking the cartridges out and putting them in again. Also, it wont scan a thing either. ITs likes its frozen in the error. What can we do to fix this?
