The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine. Open the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) and install the appropriate FINE Cartridge.

E, 7 FINE Cartridge is not installed in the correct position. Make sure that each FINE Cartridge is installed in the correct position.
E, 8 Ink absorber is almost full.

The machine has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used during Print Head Cleaning, for example. This error code indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full.

Press the Black or Color button to cancel the error so you can continue printing.

However, because printing is disabled once the ink absorber becomes completely full and until the ink absorber is replaced, you are recommended to contact Canon service center as early as possible. (You will need to replace a particular part of the machine.)

E, 9 The digital camera or digital video camcorder connected is not compatible with this machine. A communication time out occurs if an operation takes too long or if it takes too much time to send data. This may cancel printing. In such cases, disconnect and reconnect the USB cable. When printing from a PictBridge compliant device, depending on the model or brand of your device, you may have to select a PictBridge compliant print mode on the device before connecting it to the machine. You may also have to turn on your device or select Play mode manually after connecting the device to the machine. Perform necessary operations before connecting your device referring to its instruction manual. If the error is still not resolved, check if you can print another photograph.
