Canon Pixma MX330, ADF error, Code : 2,103,0
Here's what I found. There were no stuck gears or pieces of plastic caught anywhere.
The ****** can still feed paper, except for (consistently) the last page -->error/stuck.
1) In order to CLEAR THE ERROR you need to do two things
a) & b):
a) Press OK, WITH THE HOOD OPEN, with a piece of paper loaded in the ADF, being careful to grab the paper manually as it comes out of the bottom of the hood.
b) Windex the strip of glass surface which sits under the ADF next to the platen. This needs to be done with attention to minute detail, and a bright LED flashlight; since ink smudges off of documents and collects on the glass with alarming frequency. The machine may think these smudges are caught/jammed paper.
2) In order to SCAN a stack of paper, add one blank sheet to the bottom of your document. This page will be the one that
fails to clear the ADF, generates an error, and must be manually cleared before the next job.
The rest of your pages will have already scanned.

Repeat Every Time You Use it

Cleaning your head might resolve your problem. Perform the below steps to clean the head:

Print Head Cleaning / Head Refreshing If the printed nozzle check pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head (Cleaning) or print head deep cleaning (Deep Cleaning). Note:
  1. Cleaning the print head consumes a small amount of ink. Cleaning too often reduces the amount of ink in the ink tanks.

  2. Print head cleaning is performed when you connect the power cord. Your machine may perform print head cleaning periodically to avoid clogging.
Overview:
Step1:
Print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
To check whether the print head nozzles are clogged, print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
downicon.gif If the print quality is poor, perform print head cleaning.
Step 2:
Perform print head cleaning.
This unclogs the print head nozzles
Print the Nozzle Check Pattern again.
To check whether the print head nozzles are clogged, print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
If the print quality is still poor, perform two print head cleanings.
downicon.gif Print the Nozzle Check Pattern again.
Step 3:
Perform deep print head cleaning.
This is a more powerful cleaning.

  2. Press the <Menu> button.

  3. Press the left or right cursor to select [Maintenance/settings], then press <OK>.

    mp800_nozzlecheck.gif

  5. Press the up or down cursor to select [Yes], then press <OK>. (The nozzle check pattern is printed.)

  6. Confirm the nozzle check pattern.

< 2 > The abnormal nozzle check pattern

< 4 > White lines are present in the color ink pattern.
< 5 > Both black and color inks are not present.

Note:

    Note:
    Do not do any other operations until print head cleaning is completed.


  4. Print the nozzle check pattern and check the print head status.

  3. Press the up or down cursor to select [Yes], then press <OK> to start print head deep cleaning.

    Note:
    Do not do any other operations until print head deep cleaning is completed.


  4. Print the nozzle check pattern and check the print head status.

    Note:
    If the printed result does not improve even after doing print head deep cleaning, turn off the printer. Then, after 24 hours or later, do print head deep cleaning again. (After a given time interval, ink could dissolve itself, resulting in ink unclogging.)

I have a Canon MX452 All in One. I keep getting this error message, code 5,157,69, cannot scan. What can I do?

Canon PIXMA... | Answered on Nov 18, 2019


The printer offline error mostly troubles windows 7/8/10 users, The printers loses connectivity even when it is connected and operating. The status message displays offline on the computer, and the printer does not print. An Offline status indicates that the computer has failed to communicate with the printer. In some network conditions, the printer might get offline unexpectedly.

Before going to the solution for this you must know when and why printer offline error takes place:
The error may appear when Windows 8 diagnoses that the printer is unavailable, but unfortunately, most times it fails to tell whether the printer is really offline or if it has connectivity problems or printing errors. Reasons why your printer appears to be offline, include problems with hardware, such as disconnected cables or malfunctioning equipment, and problems with software, such as corrupted or incompatible driver files.
These might occur when:
1. The connection between the computer and the printer is slow/unresponsive.
2. The printer has encountered an internal error
3. There are multiple unfinished print jobs in the queue.
There are some simple steps you can follow before going to any complicated way:
Your printer offline can be a problem with the driver software. This is a small piece of code that Windows and the printers use to "talk" to each other. If the driver software is outdated, corrupted or incompatible with the version of Windows that you have installed, you may need to update it.
Restart the printer and the computer or unplug its USB cable.
Do check that the printer's power cable is plugged into an electrical outlet. If the printer is connected to a power strip, make sure the strip itself is connected to the electricity supply and is turned on.
In case you are using a network printer both wired or wireless, You restart the router as it may cause due to network failure.
Different manufacturers come with their own diagnostics software which can inform the user about the problems coming up (Ex : HP's Print and Scan Doctor), Use it as it will be really useful.
PRINTER OFFLINE ERROR Solution 1 :
Type in Services in your windows searches and hit the enter key. Click on Services option from the set of search results as shown below.
A new window for Services opens up. Scroll down and find the entry named Print Spooler.
Now right-click on Print Spooler entry and then on Properties option.
Set Startup type as Automatic from the drop-down menu.
As next, hit the Start button and wait till windows start the Print Spooler. Once done, hit Apply button.
Now if you look at the status of the Print Spooler, you can see that it is Started.
Solution 2 :
If the above method doesn't work for you, you can always try our second method. For that, type in Devices to the windows search and choose Devices and Printers from the search results.
Now find the printer that is offline and right click on it. Click on the option See what's printing from the context menu that appears.
A new window opens. Now click on the Printer tab and uncheck the option that says Use Printer Offline.
