Canon printers are one of the best printers on the market, they give quality work and have a significant high page yield.  Some printer can use the same model of ink cartridges from three previous generations.

Printers from this manufacturer have caught our attention as printer technicians because of the high sale rate. In fact, we decide to study them and check what are the most common error and how to find a solution.

We are going to focus on the Canon Pixma series especially the ones using the PG210 and PG211 ink cartridges.

When using a refill ink cartridge sometime the printer connectors are not able to recognize the ink cartridge connectors, to fix this situation you will have to clean the ink cartridge connector with a napkin and put it back in the printer.

Here are the possible solutions for the 5400 or E26 error code on Canon printers:

Before you begin any restoring procedure, please disconnect the printer power cable for about 10 minutes before starting the process.

Leaving the printer disconnect for about 10 minutes will keep it from processing data and make it cool down. When the printer connectors are not overheating anymore it will be able to recognize the ink cartridge, this is one of the solutions.

Another possible solution is cleaning the contacts on the printer and on the ink cartridges.

Like we said before, this error message could also appear after refilling an ink cartridge: they could be filling the contacts up with ink. If this is the case, you can fix this problem by cleaning the printhead.
