Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I am receiving an error regarding the waste ink tank. The Error Code is E/2/7. Is there a way I can fix this on my own? Thanks.
I wrote this on another help site I thought I'd post it here.
Let me just say this I have had many dealings with this printer type.
Before we start what needs to be done is that the two little filters under the printer carts need to be cleaned as well as the two little rubber parts housing the filters; wash these in water (after taking out of the printer) the filters should come up white-ish.
Also make sure that while you have the filters out to clean in and around that area with a cloth / tissues something to absore excess ink. After you clean this however you still need to service resert your printer.
The method for doing so is worded very badly on alot of sites so I will explain my way.
(1) have your printer power down ie. off, just to make sure pull the plug out and wait 10 seconds.
(2) plug printer back in, now Hold down the Stop/Reset button don't let go.
(2a) push and hold the on/off button
----at this point both fingers are holding down the buttons.----
(3) take your finger of Stop/Reset, pause maybe a second now press stop/reset button once and then press again and hold.
--- both fingers at this point are hold down both buttons----
(4) take your finger off on/off and now finally take your finger off stop reset.
---wait for the printer to go into its service mode ie. wait maybe 30 secs a min whatever till the printer carage has moved back into ints original spot.
---after this has occoured you should be able to press Stop/reset to cycle though the options
each time you press Stop/Reset Alarm and on/off should alternate lighting up. Hope this helps.
0 time Green Power off
1 time Orange Service pattern print (auto teste)
2 times Green EEPROM print (dados da EEPROM)
3 times Orange EEPROM reset (EEPROM reset)
4 times Green Waste ink counter reset (Absorvente reset)
Also google MPtool and downlad that this can reset your ink carts to full again, and can help with other errors, BUT your printer needs to be in low level mode. Google that I can't find that at the moment.
Hope this helps good luck

When it shows 0 just press Stop/Reset 4 times. Then turn the printer off (you may have to press power button twice to turn off) and back on. That's all.
