I installed the drivers for a canon pixma mp210 and it wont scan. it keeps saying " E 1 6"

"E 1 6" error code means Ink has run out.

Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).

If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.

The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.

Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

Did you take off the tape on the nozzle when installing the color cartridge? If you didn't do that, take it off, if you did, just run a couple black and white test pages to get the ink flowing.

Printer will not print. New cartridges have been installed. Window showing the number 5 and the letter E. The printer is Canon MP210

E, 5 is a code that definitely indicates something wrong with the ink cartridges. Either improperly installed, not seated properly or wrong cartridge (not supported). One black and one color cartridge must be installed for the printer to function.

What does e 5 mean in my canon mp210 and how can i fix it

The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine. This usually happens when you use an aftermarket or refilled cartridge. To clear the problem, open the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) and install the appropriate OEM FINE Cartridge or a better aftermarket cartridge. You might try for replacement cartridges.
If the error is not resolved, the Print Head may be damaged and you should contact an authorized Canon service shop..

Canon MP210 getting E5 message with PG-50

Sadly Canon cripple many of their printers so that they will not accept the high yield cartridges such as the 50 & 51. As a result your printer the MP210 will only accept the 37 or 38 cartridges which are only half filled, or the 40 and 41 which are fairly full, but don't contain as much as the 50 & 51. All I can suggest is that you could try to sell the 50 on eBay, and send a strongly worded email to Canon.

Cant install a print cartridge

Make sure the printer is turned on before you try to insert the cartridges. Open the cover and watch for the cartridge carrier to move from its "home" position (on the right side) all the way over to the left. Once it is all the way to the left, insert the cartridges, lifting up on the end nearest you to lock the cartridge into place.
