The Canon PIXMA MP240 is geared toward printing, scanning, and copying photos, but it handles everyday documents just as well. Its compact design won’t take up a lot of space, and it can handle media up to 8.5x17 inches in size. The unit connects via USB and includes a PictBridge port for connecting a digital camera, though it lacks network sharing features or memory card slots.
Although the model shown differs in appearance, the replacement steps are the same.
With the printer powered on, start by opening the front paper tray, then lift up from the opening to open the top of the machine. As you lift, a lever will slide out to prop the top cover safely into place.
Once the carriage holding the Canon MP240 ink cartridges moves into place, you will see a C for the color cartridge and a B for the black cartridge. Open the proper cover by pinching the two small handles together and lifting it all the way up and out of the way. The cartridge has a small handle that you can grip to pull it out of the slot.
Now you can prepare your new cartridge. Remove the PIXMA MP240 cartridge from the box, and open and remove the plastic bag. The cartridge may come with a tape strip that you can pull to remove, or a plastic cover, which is removed by pinching the handles at the top and bottom.
Insert the new Canon MP240 ink cartridge into the slot, then lower the small cover and snap it into place. If it doesn’t close easily, you may have to realign the cartridge.
Lift up on the top cover just a bit, then press the prop backward so that it will begin folding as you lower the top cover into place. Be sure to lower it gently to avoid damage.
You are now ready to resume printing with your Canon PIXMA MP240 printer.
