I am having problems sending you a photo. At this moment, an orange light is on next to a triangle with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver inside the Triangle. Ill keep tying to send you a photo.

Would you be so kind to tell me more about your issue?

Customer Replay

Customer Replay

I'm so sorry but its a Canon Pixma TS3160


Okay, thank you
What is the problem with your printer?

Customer Replay

So sorry Hanna. I have never come across this problem

Usually, the error code E04 means that the FINE cartridge in your printer is not installed correctly.
To remove the cartridges you will need to push the output tray back in before opening the cover. Once cartridges have been removed they can be re-install them by firmly pushing them back in until they click into place. The cover must then be closed so that printing can be resumed.

I have taken several photos and sent them to my computer. Now, I have been looking for them and they don't come up in the album where they should be.

Let me try and put the cartridge in again.

Thank you

Hanna, thank you so much. I just needed to print several pages for work and it has been dring me crazy. You hit the nail right on it's head. Problem was with the cartridges. I replaced them and it's working as it should. Thank you so much. I'll buy a new printer tomorrow. Thanks again.

I’m glad I was able to get that sorted out for you. Is there anything else I can assist you with today?

Customer Replay

No thank you. You saved me so much grief. Thanks again. I hope not to bother you again but I now know where to go if I have any printer problems. Have a great day or night.
