Canon Pixma MG3150 - loud banging noises!!

  Joe G 16:13 12 May 2017


I recently changed the cartridges in the above printer and afterwards (perhaps coincidentally) the printer began to make loud noises when preparing to print or printing - the paper now seems to jam occasionally and duplex printing is unusable - I've found a newer Canon printer that uses the same ink so last resort will be to buy one of those (as ink in new cartridges is worth around £20!) but does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be - I can't see any foreign bodies in either the printer input or output areas or in the duplex unit

Sounds like either one of the cartridges is faulty or it's not seated correctly.

Thanks - just tried it again but it decided to take all the 20 odd sheets of paper through and feed them back out - I think I need to cut my losses and get another one so ordered a printer that takes same ink for £35 - that will probably only last 2 or 3 years too :-( Appreciate the responses though :-)
