Canon, the well-known brand offers 200 digital imaging products, including DSLRs, digital copiers, accessories, multi-function peripherals, projectors, scanners, fax-machines, printers and more. Canon laser, inkjet and other printers give the users the all new experience of printing. You can choose from a variety of laser and inkjet models depending upon your specific requirements. No doubt, Canon printers are made using highly advanced technology; still it can stop working due to any error. Not every error comes with its description (as it directly displays the error code) that can help you fixing it out. In this article, I have got you covered with all such error codes along with their meaning and solution. Have a look: 

Canon Printer Error E04

Solution- Remove the cartridge by retracting the output tray extension and re-insert it by pushing it the right place until it fits correctly. Close the printer and use your printer like new.

Canon Printer Error E15

It may happen that the different types as well as versions of the Canon printer show different error codes for the one problem. For example, when you install a computer on a PC with Windows operating system, the problem could be different than that of the Mac operating system.
