Canon MP 140 problem

  Quiet Life 14:57 10 Jan 2011

MP140 About a minute after turning on the printer the Power lamp flashes green and the alarm lamp orange and I get a flashing E,2 error code.The manual says an error requiring servicing has ocurred.
If I try to use the printer I get an error E5100 . Clearing this by the solution on the web the test page prints out OK and the printer power lamp remains steady green but then after a minutes reverts to problem in first paragraph.
1.What is the problem likely to be and is there a solution for this problem?
2.Is there any fix to allow the scanner to work when the printer does not?

click here Is this one of the fixes that you have tried? Error code 2 is a paper related problem. Have a look at the paper switch.

This is not Error Code 2 paper related but as above Error code 2 lights flashing which is
"an error requiring servicing has ocurred"
Yes I have tried that fix. Thanks
