    I think you are hitting the ground correctly because when I picked up the printer it would print the first page then jam at the second page every time. When I got it back to the shop it would not power up. Then I left it off over the weekend one time and it powered back up and was printing the second and consecutive pages without jamming but i was getting printing abnormalities(first page would print with short line about 1/32" above the image and the image was transferring to second and other consecutive page).

    I then came back(thinking that the image was not being removed from the drum between printings) after changing two consumable parts(maintenance kit drawer and page release Mylar bar) and I am back to the not fully powering up. I think what I have stated in the first post may be confusing individuals. The unit will power up but during it warm phase (Xerox takes forever) about 50%-70% of the way the unit will go into a cleaning mode in which it will attempt to clean the print head. During this portion of the cycle, half way through the machine will shut off completely.

    The above is it in a nutshell. If you want anything else please feel free to ask. I will be changing the system board on Monday.

    I appreciate the help from you and the thinking outside of the box that is require within fixing any end user issue that normally has to be done in order for them to perform their job.

It is my pleasure. I am glad you sent me a seperate post outside of the other one.
I really am trying to help, and i could care less about the payment thing they have going.
of all of the answers i have been providing, I think this is the only "premium" one, and only because I honestly thought I might be able to give you some insight.

Had I seen this post from you a few minutes ago, I would have put my latest suggestions to you here.

Please really read and digest my last post that I just sent.

I am looking at this whole situation from a technical point of view, NOT a xerox phaser point of view.

At this point something that "shouldn't be wrong" is wrong. I am a Senior CE for my company. I have taught Lexmark and Dell training classes, and I still am called in to fix things after others get stuck. ( but i still make mistakes sometimes too... lol ). But one of the reasons I am successful is because i am like Fox Mulder... lol, the truth is out there and it may not be what you think it is :)

Two weeks ago I fixed a Lexmark Printer at Patrick AFB after one of our other techs got stuck on it. He had already changed a bunch of parts, and ordered a few more.

20 minutes after I got there I had the unit repaired and tested with no parts used.

the problem... they were getting a constant paper jam, and the had to tape the side door closed or the interlock kept saying the door was open.

the solution.... I took the printer off of the table it was sitting on ( which was just a tiny bit too small ) and set it on the floor which was perfectly level.

reason... the printer was actually being bowed, just enough that the door interlock was not closing. The table was just a hair to small, and at one point sitting back just a little more then when the problem arose. someone probably bumped into the printer and shifted it on the table enough that the weight of the printer itself was causing this bow effect.

Anyway.. enough rambling for now. I guess I just want you to know i am offering up some ideas to try to stimulate positive troubleshooting, and know it isnt just to try to earn a buck.

Noise printing to much cyan

Unfortunately, No, there is no "quiet" mode available on these. Keep in mind that this is a high speed 62 page per minute laser printer. The faster printers get, the more noise they are likely to produce. Combined with the fact that these are very compact printers printing at a very fast speed, the case being plastic and there is basically no sound deadening material inside, these printers will produce more sound compared to a slower machine. I think these are expected to be used in high volume offices that have printer/copy rooms, or where noise is not much of an issue and they are isolated away from offices and users. There is really no easy and aesthetic way to quiet these in a small office environment that you've described without enclosing them in an acoustic enclosure (which reduces accessibility and potential cooling problems) or in a separate room.

Yellow light keeps flashing underneath triangle- Error code 6480. Please advise what this means? many thanks

There is a thin (1/4"wide) plastic strip running across the width in front of and below the drive belt. This is part of the optical encoder that tells the print-head where it is. If you look closely, there are fine black vertical lines on this strip. If the strip gets a piece of crud on it, you get an error during the start-up sequence. Gently clean this strip with a damp lint-free tissue. This also will fix a gap in the printing running lengthwise (not across the page like a clogged head).

The problem here is the waste ink pads are full, these pads are located at the lock posistion to the far right where the units cartridge holder goes when you power down the unit and on start up. The way to solve this to to have the pads replaced, they are used to collect the waste ink the printer uses to clean itself when starting up, These pads usually take a long time to fill up, so either you do alot of printing or you hve used Non Canon inks or generic refill cartridges in the past, these are not good for your printer as some of these types of inks are either to thin or to thick and fill the pads up prematurely..Keep in mind to always use recommended guine ink cartridges you may save a little now with ink refill cartridges but in the long run your printer will eventually give out.

Canon Pixma MP170 waste ink abosorber is full. Please advise how to empty it

That's a "normal" issue on Canon printers. Canon will change the absorber for free if your printer is still on Warranty. If it isn't they usually charge $10.

For toll-free technical support, please call Canon at 1 (800) 828-4040 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. EST, excluding holidays).

Our MFC 7840 printer when faxing keeps saying

Depending on your location the line coulod well be poor quality for a sensitive fax. Any spurious sounds on a fax line will cause it to fault.
May I suggest you try the fax on the mainline first before assuming the unit is at fault.

Length of line from point a to b can also reduce the efficiency of signal. It may sound ok to the ear, but resistance may be the factor in reducing the level of the tone that the fax requires to hear and then activate send or receive.It reports poor line condition and even poor memory because it keeps loading to send.

If it does it on the mainline as well then I would be considering a technical call for help. There may be a fault in the unit.

please rwte my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Call your local CANON office -- presumably, your employer is paying a "service contract" to CANON to get support (9 to 5, Monday to Friday).

I am trying to order some ink for my printer and i need to talk to some one to oder them but the office is close where can i go online to get that done i don't want to wait til monday morning

Several choices:

1. '' -- search for 'X5470 ink'.

2. try a "big-box" store (Best Buy, Office Depot, etc.) looking for

"Black #32 ink Cartridge 18C0032" and/or

"Color #33 ink cartridge 18C0033"

for your printer.

Have online microsoft Home & Student 2007, Trial period 60 days. Started program around June 21. Not able to "print" anything. Printer works fine except for Microsoft abilities.

I was told by someone at MICROSOFT to purchase the program at an office supply store and install it with a disk. I'll keep you in mind should something serious happen. thank you.
