20 Most Recent Canon Pixma MX410 All-In-One Printer Questions & Answers

Hi, Try this: Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. Then, unplug the USB from the back of the printer. After a minute, plug the power cord back in. Let the printer boot up for a minute. Then plug the USB in again. Let the USB get connected. If you don't see any errors and you setup your printer, then that should have reset the "other operation".
Thanks for using FixYa.

I don't have a Pixma printer but the ink absorbers are usually located at the right side if the printer just under the print heads. This is the area used by the printer to clean the print heads. My guess is that more of the ink used by a printer ends up here instead of of be ing used for printing. There is good information on youtube. See Link

The printheads for this printer are part of the ink cartridge. They can be cleaned by sitting the bottom of the cartridge (where the printhead is) in a shallow dish of warm water to dissolve the dried ink. Blot on a dry tissue (dont wipe) then try print again.

If that computer has internet access, then try updating the driver. In windows 7, go to Start -> control panel -> system and security -> system. Device manager is on the left. If that doesn't help, try a different USB cable, or better yet, try that first.

On the print window, click on preferences. Click the Main tab at the top, then click the arrow for the drop down menu next to Media Type. At the bottom is Other Papers. Click there, and you'll find T-Shirt Transfers where you can print in reverse. Don't forget to switch back!

Is the Pixma connected to a wireless router (or connected by USB or ethernet cable)? It could be that the router connection failed. Try restarting the router, or repeat wireless connection on the Pixma.

Either there is a small fragment of paper still hidden in the carriage somewhere, or the sensor is defective. If you can't seem to locate the problem, it would be best to contact Canon directly and ask technical service for assistance.

PG510 and CL511 cartridges have a memory chip which records the number of pixels printed to give an approximate ink level so it won't know if you have added more ink. These levels cannot be re-set. The error message on computer screen should give instructions to continue printing with an "empty" cartridge which normally involve holding the Stop/Reset button on the printer for more than 5 seconds whilst the message is still on the PC screen. You may have to do this once for each of the 2 cartridges.

I am a bit rusty on this and not up with later machines (from my old fax machine) or latest phone system features, it is possible that your answering system is getting in ahead of the fax so it is unable to hear the fax tones to respond.
Now I do not have an answering service but my line runs through a ring counter which transfers a call to my fax after 8 rings.

If your answering service is a home device unit its instructions may help or it may have a socket on it for a fax to plug into so it can transfer a call.
If its a provided service you may need to talk with them regarding this problem and they may have a setting that can be done to include a fax.
That fax may have a ring count setting itself in the menu which may need to be lowered.
Phones are not my normal subject so I may not make much sense but it seems that the answering service is winning the pick up the phone first contest, fax's are a bit older technology and tend to be lower on the priority list. They either have a dedicated line or get switched in at night when a company shuts shop.

You may need a PBX system (a local phone exchange) if you have a home answering unit, these units can pick up a line at first ring then direct it to a fax if it hears tones, or phone if not after a few seconds but this will not work with a provided service. I think we are both confused now but I hope this helps in some way..........
