Never buy a Canon printer



I’m a huge fan of Canon, having spent thousands of dollars on still cameras, video cameras, lenses and flashes over the years.

But I made a huge mistake thinking that quality would go into its printers.

I purchased the Canon MP530 a little over a year ago to replace my HP, which is another brand of printer I would never buy.

Even though I was never able to get the fax working properly, I figured it was a decent printer because it printed. But now it doesn’t even do that.

Every time I try to print, I receive the following message:

Error Number : 1681 More than one ink tank of the following color is installed. “Black [5]“ Use only one ink tank per color at a time.

But everything is installed correctly. I’ve even taken out the cartridges to make sure they had ink. I even replaced a couple of cartridges with low ink. But the problem persisted.

So I did what any frustrated person would do. I Googled those words. And I realized I wasn’t alone.

The solution apparently is to open and close the hatch. Sometimes I do this and it prints. Other times I do this ten times and I still get the same error.

So if you’re looking to buy a printer, go with an Epson.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
