Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I am getting a P 0 2 error on my Canon mp250. Roomate spilled a drink on top of it and I think it is causing the ink cartridges to stick on the rod(or whatever) that the cartridges travel on. I can bang it and it will eventually start. But seems to be getting worse. Can I clean with alcohol and lubricate or something? I found only two screws on back and a clip to release the power supply, otherwise I can't get to the right areas. What can I do?

SOURCE: Lexmark P6250 black ink cartridge won t print

Write to Lexmark - you won't get any joy, but their reply might be interesting. I suspect that Lexmark builds a chip into their cartridges preventing it being refilled. When replying to me they did not admit this, but did not deny it, simply stating that their cartridges were designed for single use only. When I said that, apart from the cost, I wanted to minimise my impact on the environment by refilling cartridges, they pointed out their proud association with Planet Ark. I suspect that Planet Ark is happy to be an apologist for corporate vandals, and I seriously question their 'green' credentials. Order your next cartridges from Europe where the printer companies are not allowed to chip their products.

SOURCE: Canon MultiPass F20 - "Wrong Cartridge error msg" - not new but hardly used

Take both cartridges out and then you will see a grey lever in the front of the assembly that holds the two cartridges in it.
If you lift that lever up it will allow you to remove the print head assembly.
Soak that in some hot water, use a straw to help blow out any remaining ink residue in the holes that the ink flows throw and once it is dry again put it back in and see if the error goes away.
I'm just running a head cleaning, nozzle cleaning etc. now but I appear to be back in business.

SOURCE: officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

SOURCE: we have a Canon MP250 Pixma printer that recently

try to adjust the paper guides, then check the rollers for any damaged or dirt which you may need to clean with a dry cloth. make sure they are align, Then use new set of paper and test the printer again. It seems that something is causing the paper to tilt to the right side causing the paper jam.

    Why will my canon pixma mp250 not reset a refilled color cartridge


    i dont think you where trying the right solutions. the mp250 catridge 511 can not be reset as far as i know. what you can do to get it to print is to long press the reset button. this disables the ink level check function and you can work. the procedure you stated is usually for resetting the ink absorber, not catridges.

    Good Luck!

    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.

    Canon mp250 series can i print only in black and white i ran out of color ink.


    Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.
