Question about Canon MultiPASS F60 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon Multipass F60 Printer

I have a Canon Multipass F60 Scanner Printer that has stop responding when I try to print. I have never had a problem until now. When I try to print, a period of time will go by and then a gray box will pop up saying device can not be found, and to check and make sure the machine is on and also to make sure my printer is still coonected. I have tried another USB cable and still no response.
The weird thing is that I can scan with it and it will send what I scan to my computer, so in that way it can communicate. Also when I raise the printer lid with the printer on the printer head or ink cartridge housing will not return to the center like it should when the lid is open, it stays all the way to the right of the machine.
Can you help me solve this printer problem?
Thanks, Steveroart47

    I downloaded and reinstalled the printer drivers from the link you gave me but the printer is still not responding, is there anything else I may need to check or do?

    Thanks, Steveroart47

    It still will not print. After following the 5 steps for printing out a test page it makes a noise like it wants to do something then nothing happens.

    Now the red light does blink but that is because the yellow ink tank is empty, but that has never stopped me from printing before, because I just push resume buttom and it prints, and that is what it asked me to do when I tried printing a test page.

    I am confused why the print head will not return to the center when the printer lid is open, as soon as you open the lid it always has returned to the center where you can replace the ink tanks.

    Open to any ideas.

    Thanks, Steveroart47

    It still will not respond. You can hear it and it sounds like it is setting up or preparing to print but nothing happens.

  • Steve Robison Nov 03, 2008

    I have checked for for anything that might be jammed and there is nothing. I have tried to get paper to feed through with no luck. I have noticed when I try to run a test page that I hear the printer making the noise of preparing to print, while I hear this I am watching the back where the paper feeds into the printer to see if anything is moving, like the paper tray and the rollers that pull the paper in, but nothing moves. Its like one part of the printer is not communicating with the paper feeder area.

    I may try one more time uninstalling and reinstalling the printer.

    1. On the operator panel, press and hold the button for one second. (The display will go blank.)

      Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer.

    2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the button again.

    3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.

    4. then try to print self test page...

    1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
    2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
    3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
    4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
    5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
    6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
    7. Turn the printer off.
    8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
    9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

My MX922 printer worked well this morning. All cartridges have ink but ALL lights under the cartridges are on and print comes out blank. There are no error codes or anything abnormal displayed

This problem is mainly happens to all inkjet printers. If your printer print blank pages then please at least once go to official site of Canon and check whether there is any printer/scanner drivers update is available or not. If yes then download it. Also check your ink cartridges. Because if there is no print on paper that means your ink might be dry.Sometimes it clog the print head. If your ink cartridges get dry change it. Or you should clean your printer's print nozzle by using printer's control panel. I hope all these suggestions helps you. If doesn't then watch Canon MX922 Manual English

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?

Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on

Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.

Prinnter not printing but showing &#39;put custom in manual tray&#39;

There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.

Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...

When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.

HP printer psc 2210 all in one

Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all work in most cases. Good luck.
