The solution is very simple. No need to change your USB cables or press every button like a piano to kill the printer. All you have to do is this:


1. Press and hold the "Stop/Reset" button for 5 seconds.

Wow, i finally solved this bloody problem but in very odd way.
i also had got the messege saying that print maintenance still in progress after inks had run out, and as you know it did not function as scanner.
i tried to figure it out by switching off both of the computer and printer , replacing inks, downloding new programme..
nothing still happend.
finally i got mad.
i was too mad so started to press all the buttons (not in particular order)like playing the piano to kill this bloody printer
how crazy i was.
but without expectation, suddely the function of scan came back to me.
absolutely unbelievable.
i am not sure whether your one can work in this way,
but if you have same problem,and still has not solved, have a try
could be working.

    Hi, I am using a PIXMA MX 310 and have replaced the cartridges. It says Check Ink U051 BLK COL. I have tried holding the STOP/RESET button but this has not worked (it has worked in the past). It won't...


    Hello Maggie

    You need to replace the cartridge with a new one original canon,not refill.If you refill the cartridge the printer not recognize it.If i have been useful pls give me a vote :)

    Cannon Pixma mp145 model error for scan i dont have need for printer i am using only scanner --------------------------- Printer maintenance is in progress. Scan after it is complete. Code : 2,114,0


    Hi,

    According to you your scanner not working well which error code 2,114,0.

    To solve this you can try the following

    unplug cable

    press and hold "power" button

    plug cable

    press "resume" and release

    release the "power" button

    At this stage, your computer will detect a new hardware.

    Insert the the driver CD and update the scanner driver.

    It may happens also for empty cartridge of also.

    Replacing of your empty or dry ink cartridge can solve your problem.

    Troubleshooting in scanning and printing


    You have to reset that cart. before you fill it there should be instructions on how to do this on the refill kit you bought, you cannot just fill the cart and put it in the printer you will dmage the print head if you have not already done so. I cannot see what was done so I could not give you a solution but only tell you that the ink needs to be charged before you put it into the printer!!!
