Reasons for error codes in Canon® printers
What causes error codes in Canon printers?
A printer is a device which produces text or graphics of documents stored in electronic form, usually on physical print media such as paper or transparencies. A printer is primarily used as a local peripheral and is attached by a printer cable or a USB cable to a computer which serves as a document source. It provides a wide range of printing solutions for your home, office or business needs. You may sometimes face issues or errors with your Canon printer installed in your computer and such specific errors are called error codes. These specific codes point to a specific error that your printer encounters and the main cause of error codes are software issues or hardware malfunctions.
The causes of error codes in Canon printers:
- Error 13
- Error 21
- Error 55
Error 13 is probably one of the most common printer error codes displayed. The error points to a paper jam in your Canon printer and your printer repair manuals will give you instructions on how to get rid of a paper jam, so be sure to follow the directions on the printer screen or paper tray for the best way to remove crumpled paper from the rollers and get your printer up and running again.
You may feel that you need a printer repair specialist after seeing this error, but Error 21, or print overrun, lets you know that the job you are requesting is too complex. You can easily resolve this printer error code by replacing the font on some of the documents you are trying to print, or by adjusting some of the margins on your page so that the text will fit inside the printing page.
Error 55 is a complicated printer error code, but Error 55 will let you know that the internal communication between the printer and computer did not get fully processed. The DC controller in the printer may not be receiving proper information and you should check the DC controller connection in order to fix this issue. Also, your printer may not be receiving enough power from the power supply unit, so changing it may help solve this problem.
