    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    @stratman OK, thank you for your assistance. Luckily I can still print in black and I rarely need to print in color. So I am going to do nothing for the moment.

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    I asked a technician in my city. I showed him the nozzle check and he told me that there is an electric failure in the color head. I asked him if he can determine that just by seeing the nozzle check and if it is useless to keep trying cleaning the heads. He said yes. And that the head can be...

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    @The Hat Oh, no... do you mean the color print head is damaged? But I just printed in color once in a while and I didn't do anything wrong. Can it be ruined just by doing nothing? Should I print more often to avoid damaging the head? (even if Canon doesn't say nothing about it, at least...

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    This time I didn’t watch the videos because I did some improvements before reading your message. First, I tried doing the Deep Cleaning with the printer buttons and after some seconds the orange and green lights flashed as when I did it via software, probably indicating and error. Then, I did...

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    I could try doing a Deep Cleaning or System Cleaning directly with the printer buttons, without the software.

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    @stratman Hello, thank you. But yesterday I managed to fill the pipes with the syringe method. Here is a photo of how they look right now: I watched the videos you showed me. But the problem is that Error 5200 shows up. I mean, I didn’t try doing the System Cleaning right now. But, before...

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    @stratman I don’t have an Ink Flush option. Is it the same as System Cleaning? Anyway, I couldn’t do a System Cleaning right now because the ink levels are too low for that. And also, as I said in my original post, I think Error 5200 will show up and won’t let me do the cleaning. In fact...

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    @stratman Hello. I just did the thing with the syringes, according to this video: Now I can see ink in all the tubes (at least, ten minutes ago). And it was not easy, because I did it once, and when I sucked the last color ink, the other inks go back… But the thing is that the nozzle check...

    @stratman This is how it looks:

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    The color lines have basically air, and not ink, specially at the end... (tomorrow I can post photos) So, you can suck the ink with syringes to fill the lines. And this procedure will have the same result as a "system cleaning", but without wasting ink. Right? And by the way, when you do the...

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    Thank you. But how can the printhead be overheated if I rarely print in color? In principle, I suspect the problem is due precisely to lack of use of color inks. Am I wrong in thinking this way?

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    Thank you for the information. The color tanks are half-filled, I don't think I need to add more ink for the moment. So, this "system cleaning" apparently consumes A LOT of ink. Should I do it if the “Cleaning” and “Deep Cleaning” didn’t solve the problem?

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    Thank you for the reply. There is ink. This printer has tanks which I can refill.

    Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color – ERROR 5200

    My Canon G2100 doesn’t print in color. The “Cleaning” and “Deep Cleaning” didn’t solve the problem. And I was not able to do the “System Cleaning” because Error 5200 showed up. This error has been showing up lately. I don’t know if it is related to the lack of color printing, probably it is. I...

    Canon ink expiration date

    @stratman I didn’t return the bottle because it was all very difficult. The shop was far away from home, I had to go to another far away shop to buy a new bottle which was more expensive, etc. And this new bottle it would say “install before 1-2021”, just 8 or 9 months of difference. Not worth...

    Canon ink expiration date

    @stratman I refilled the black tank with the “install before 4-2020” bottle and it works fine for the moment. By the way, the tank was seemingly empty. I thought it was at the lower indicator, because the plastic is not so transparent, and there is a mark that confused me. So, it is good to...

    Canon ink expiration date

    @stratman I just bought the black one and I think I am going to be okay with that. If I had the color bottles, I would fill all the tanks. But in my case that is not possible. I just have one printer, at home. I print regularly, but not too much really. Printing is not out of control. I think...

    Canon ink expiration date

    @stratman Thanks again. Thank you for the recommendation. I read the links and I think I now understand. Though I don’t clearly understand how the automatic ink alarm works. But the fact is I print much more in black and white, and most probably I use another, a second black bottle before...

    Canon ink expiration date

    Hi @stratman Thank you for your reply. It is an expiration date. The seller told me that they put that label because Canon is compelled to do that, but that the expiration date “doesn’t mind”, but maybe he was lying. Also, the seller told me that this bottle was part of an old stock (I don’t...

    Canon ink expiration date

    Hi. I bought a Canon GI-190 BK bottle of ink for a Canon G2100 printer. This would be my first refilling. 1) EXPIRATION DATE The sticker on the box says the expiration date is April 2020. So, according to this, it has already expired. The seller told me that it was still working fine, but...
