First print a nozzlle check pattern. Check all colors. If the problem is in any other color than cyan then you can fix this issue. If not you'll have to replace the head with a new one.
Try to update the firmware also to version 1.32 (for iPF700) and 1.35 (for iPF710) and check the result.

    regarding the red stripes seem to me that at gray area(hatch) must missing cyan.

    If the firmware update fails to correct your problem then unfortunatelly you'll have to replace the print head.

  • To enter SERVICE MODE the machine has to be switched OFF. While the machine is off, hold down the sheet or roll feed button and the information button. Keep these pressed and switch the machine on, keeping the buttons pressed until you see an S in the top right-hand corner of the display, then let go of the buttons. You should now be in SERVICE MODE.

first try to print nozzle check in services mode.
Scroll right to the service mode box (rightmost box) and press OK. You should then see the word 'DISPLAY'. Scroll right until you see the choice 'ADJUST' appear. Then scroll down until you see the choice 'NOZZLE 1' appear and press OK. If you haven't already loaded paper, the printer will prompt you to do so and then it will print out the NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN.

check go any nozzle no firing out ink..if ok means printhead problem need replace.

later go to maintenance menu choice replace print head.

then follow their picture image to replace the print head.

I have a canon ipf700 and power went off and now the machine is coming up with an error message of E161-403E. any help will be great

Hold down the roll/media button and the info button while turning on. Wait about 10 seconds and release roll/info buttons. You should get an "S" in the upper right corner; this puts you in service mode.

Push menu then scroll down to maintenance then right arrow to head replacement. Then get out of service mode turn off.

E161 403E means abnormal print head temperature. The print head needs to be replaced. Boot printer into service mode, and from the menu select head replacement.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Why does my IPF700 plotter print cyan lines on the whole print?

Are you using the correct drivers? If the answer is yes you either have a bad (or dirty) printer or, a bad ink cartridge.

Canon ipf700 error 03130031-2f13.

if after the code you had to shutter down, and then the plotter made a head cleaning, we fix just putting a little of oil in the band, in the section were the head print moves.

Why does the plotter use color even if we do not plot in color?

If you print in some CAD programm try the following....
Print Target:Line Drawing
Color Mode:Color CAD when the CTB is color and Monochrome when the CTB is monochrome
Resolution:Draft 600
For your situation use CTB monochrome and ColorMode Monochrome.
The print head prints max resolution 2400X1200

Loading cut sheets

Try to check the paper media set on the plotter (roll/plain paper). It usually happens if paper media is not the same with the plotter setting. To change it, unload the paper, press the media button on the printer to the right media and load the paper again. It should work now.
