Question about Canon Pixma Mp250 Allinone Inkjet Photo Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have replaced both of the ink cartridge's in my Canon Pixma MP250 and now whenever I print anything in color, it comes out very light and the color has no depth to it. I made sure the cartridge's were securely installed twice and cables and everything else has been triple checked. What could be causing this problem?

Did you use Canon cartridges or generic ones? Sometimes if you do not use brand specific cartridges the printer will realize this and not print correctly. Also after you changed the cartridges did you calibrate the printer? If not, try calibrating 3 times and see if this corrects the problem. If not, it could be the cartridges...

    I used canon cartridges and I did calibrate it, I suppose it might be the cartridges themselves.
    Thank you anyways.

Canon Printer MP250 doesn't want to keep the grayscale ONLY setting.many attempts to use only black ink but it keeps on setting color ink by default. SB001


If you are changing to greyscale before you print, it will only stay there for that print job. You need to go to the printer through the control panel - devices - printer and change it to greyscale. It should stay that way then.

I have a Canon PIXMA MP250, and it's printing black and faded lines alternatively. (one line black, one line faded black...), sometimes involve blue too.. Anyone can help?


First, are you running low on those ink colors? If not, possibly print cartridges need cleaning. If printer has separate print heads, they made need cleaning.
Lastly, print head(s) may need replacement.

I have a canon pixma mp250 printer and i can't find the manual to explain how to replace the black ink cartridge.


To change the ink, make sure that the printer is on (green light is lit). Then lift up the entire scanner unit and latch the support on the right. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move into the ink cartridge replacement position. Open the cartridge cover on the right hand side by pinching the front and the tab on the top together; then lift it upwards. The cover will rotate towards the back of the printer. Pull the empty cartridge back out of the slot. Open your new cartridge and peel off the protective tape. (Do not touch the electrical contacts or the nozzles.) Place the new cartridge in the slot (slide it forward). Then rotate the cartridge cover back down until it clicks. If you do not need to change the color cartridge, lift up on the scanner unit until the support unlocks. Then carefully lower the entire scanner unit to close it (don't pinch your fingers or drop the scanner unit). If the orange Alarm light comes on, check that the cartridges are correctly installed and the cover is in place. Wait until the printer recharges ink system before sending a print job or copying a page.

Canon has the documentation for the MP250 on their site: http://usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/photo_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mp250#BrochuresAndManuals (for the manuals) .

I hope this helps.

If the results print out like this, there are two possibilities:
1. Red ink in the cartridge runs out. Solution: injecting with red ink
2. If the red ink has been filled, and check pattern is still not out, meaning the color cartridge error.
Solution: replace the cartridges

Error code 08 keeps showing and printer does not print


Hi,
According to Canon, the error that you are getting is related to the print head overheating. Usually the one connected to the color ink. What they recommend you to do is to replace the ink cartridge. Preferably the colored one.
Please do inform me on what happened to this.

I refilled the ink cartridges on my canon mp250 printer. Now the ink lights will not quit flashing and I am unable to print anything. I tried resetting according to instructions provided by canon and it...


Hi,

How much time you have done refilling a same cartridge? You shouldn't refill a same cartridge more than three times. Make sure that the cartridges are OK. May be the head of the cartridges are not in good condition. You may need to replace cartridge. Check that you have installed the cartridges properly or reinstall it. Align the cartridges. If it doesn't solve your problem then you have to replace the cartridges. Using original cartridge always is recommended.
