MG3150the printer is showing E and1 followed by 6 and will not print Can you Help please
Hello!Thank you for your question. I amCustomerand I look forward to helping you with your issue today. The error means that the ink has run out. Please check if any of the cartridge is empty and replace it in order to get the issue resolved. Replace the ink cartridge and close the paper output cover. Canon recommends using new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities. If the issue persists, please do the following. Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine.Then clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself. Inside means the printhead where the cartrdige seats.Do this with a small amount of warm water on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab.If any of the other cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them.Then turn off the machine and unplug it for 5 minutes.Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message.Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there. If the issue persists, or you have any questions, please be back and let me know.If you appreciate my service, please rate it EXCELLENT by clicking the EXCELLENT (5 Stars) and Submit.
