Had the same problem, i just replaced the black ink cartridge which was finishing at that time and resetted the counters. No problems after that. Not sure whether this will help though.

SOURCE: Canon pixma mp240 ink reset

Thats funny, cause I took the cartridges out and left the lid up, unplugged it, plugged it back in with my finger on the power button and tapped the stop/reset button twice. Put the cartridges in, pressed the color start, after some moaning a test page printed. I unplugged it again, plugged it back in and I had full ink Levels!!!

Printer Canon 240PM It stopped printing and despays P8


on the printer you have a buton called resume/cancel; it has on it a red circle and in the circle a red triangle; hold that buton for at least 10 seconds and the error should go away; if it still shows the error hold one more time the same buton for at least 10 seconds, after that power off and power on the printer.
your printer will never show the amount of ink in the cartridges again until you put in new and original ones but it will print scan & copy like it is new.

Receiving error message 5200...but i have lost my original manual thanks


According to the error code, http://pixma.ulmb.com/?p=226, the error #5200 means "Print head temperature rise error".

Some of the nozzles of your printer are clogged. The print head will overheat because it does not have ink going through the nozzles to cool it. But you continued to print repeatedly, the print head may have been destroyed due to overheating.

Service error 5200 canon mp240


Sir,
Error 5200 indicated an error with the print head. Try to cleaning all contacts on the print head as well as on the connecting pad. And also the power needs to be restated, so do it and try it again, just take out the USB, the power from the wall outlet and the USB in the printer itself.
Thanks Good Luck

I am recieving a P8 error


Canon's P8 error indicates that the ink absorber is full and might need replacement.

You can have the printer checked thru an authorized service center.

What does P8 error code mean?


The 8 error code just means that the ink absorber is full and needs to be replaced. Power cycling will not help this problem. A shop needs to replace the absorber and reset the counter.
