Question about Canon PIXMA MP240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Hi, I bought a Pixma MP240 and it came with ink cartidges CL-211 and PG210, but when they ran out in the store they gave me PG-512 and CL-511. In their boxes it says they work with the MP240 but when I installed them the printer shows E 1 4 and both the color ink botton and the black ink botton are blinking and the alarm botton is also on but not blinking. Can you tell me what's wrong?

Canon mx330 how to change ink cartridges


Use the thumb drill to literally drill a hole into the side of the old cartridge. Make sure to chose a location that's closer to the top of the ink cartridge to avoid over spillage when you add the new ink. Once you have the hole just squeeze in some ink of corresponding color into the hole. Not a huge amount, but enough to get some use out of it before the next refill. I highly recommend covering the hole afterward with a sticker or something so that you don't dry out the cartride. Reinsert the cartridge into the printer and use. (: All set!

*Note: You may have to reset the count on the cartridge to avoid getting messages that the ink need to be changed. From here on in, use your eyes to determine if the cartridge needs a refill (:

I bought a new Cannon PIXMA MX320 with no ink cartridge, the manual says that it requires PG-210 & CL-211, while the cannon site says it works with the PG-510 and CL-511. so my question is do they both...


Hi,

Cannon cartidge numbers are quite confusing to say the least, but your printer requires PG-510 and CL-511, PG is black and CL colour.

The 210/211 is a non european number, but they are the same as CL-511 and PG-510.

Hope this helps.

I bought some ink cartridges yesterday for my printer and got 510&511 combo pack for a MX320 only to get home and notice mine has 40&41 combo in it and is a MX310. Can I still use the 510&511...


That printer uses the following ink cartridges

PG-30
CL-31
(low capacity)

PG-40
CL-41
(normal capacity)

PG-50
CL-51
(high capacity)

The ink you purchased will not work on the Canon PIXMA MX310 printer.

Is there a cheaper way to replace the Canon MP240 ink cartridges by using a generic source?


I would not recommend using generics for the PG-210 CL-211. Canon builds these style cartridges with what we simply call a "digital fuse". Basically there is coding on the cartridge that turns the cartridge off once the printer believes it to be empty. For this reason we do not refill these cartridges in our shop, nor do we suggest refills at all. If you would like to use refills, Canon printers that take the 221 series cartridges refill well and are reliable. But make sure you only use refills of Canon original cores. Internet "compatibles" commonly don't fit right, or have communication errors.
