Use scanner only on a Canon MP140 Printer Answered
Hey everyone, I had a great idea to take a non working all-in-one Canon Pixma MP140 printer, remove the non working printer part and use only the working upper tray with the scanner.
How complicated can this be?
Not as straight forward as I thought.
The scanner worked great before I took the printer apart.
I removed all the plastic, metal bars and cartridges and thought that with a bit of tweaking it'll work. Hell, at this point I need devine intervention, or at least a knowledgeable instructables member...
Right now when I turn it on (I don't know what to call it anymore a scanner or a printer) the power and the alarm LEDs blink with the 7-segment display showing E...2...6... and I can't scan.
The following procedure changes the indication, but the end result is the same:
•Turn off the printer
•Hold the Resume Button (red circle in the triangle), click “Power” which will turn green.
•Hold the Power Button, release the Resume Button.
•Not releasing the Power Button, double click “Resume” and release Both Buttons.
•Click “Resume” for Four times
•Once you click “Power”, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber). To disable the printer “Power” button to click again.
and I can't scan.
I fiddled a bit with a wire innocently thinking it'll do the trick.... somehow... but ended up accidently touching the part that connects the scanner white data cables to the PCB. It sparked and the scanner turned OFF.
I'm afraid that might have caused the E26 error that I found indicated: Internal temperature rise error.
