Canon is most trust able and big brand which is known for its quality products. The company is offering a variety of printers for personal as well as official use. In this article, we are discussing different errors that users may encounter in their Canon printers while installing its cartridges. For further details on any issues, users can also connect with tech support using Canon printer helpline numbers UK.

Error Message E13 and E16

The reason of getting these error codes on Canon inkjet printer will occur due to empty ink cartridges. If user’s ink cartridge has no ink the, the user will encounter either E13 or E16 error message. The user can see this message on their printer screen, once the message appears on the screen, the printer will stop printing and scanning. However, this issue will not damage your printer at all, you just need to replace the empty ink cartridges will the filled one.

Canon error code 1686 and 1688

These error codes also warn users that their printer’s cartridge is empty and prompt error “the ink may have run out” or “The ink has run out”.

We always receive the same query of encountering error message “The Ink has run out” for the Canon Printer even after refilling the cartridge.

 So the reason behind the occurrence of this problem is, even if users have installed or replaced the empty cartridge, printers have no way of checking inside the fresh cartridge instead of this printer only look for the pages that have been printed and average page coverage since it was first installed into the Canon printer. Only from this information, the printer will decide that the ink level is running low or it is empty.

The user can update the information about the replaced cartridge by pressing and holding STOP/RESUME/ RESET button.

You can encounter error codes   E04, E05, E14 or E15 if your Canon Pixma inkjet printer is not recognizing the cartridges due to this user will get warning “The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized”. Error code E04 will occur if the FINE cartridge is not installed correctly.

 The error code E05 may causes an orange light in the printer that will blink for 5 times, this error will found if the print head is installed incorrectly.

Error code E14 will occur if the ink cartridge is not being supported by the printer, which also results in an orange light that may blink for 14 times. Error code 15 may occur if the cartridge is not recognized by the printer.

These errors generally occur if the cartridge is not installed in right position, to resolve these issues one can re-install the cartridge and resolve the problem.
