Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Dear Randy, My printer is from 9/2005,

Dear Randy, My printer is from 9/2005, serial number FCJA72295. The repair procedure by e-mail as I see it is that I send you written explanations of my end of the repair and close-up photos, per your instruction, of the parts involved. This may result in my having to order replacement parts from Canon if they still have them. Is that the way it will work? The specific problem is that the printer has been going along okay but suddenly it simply wouldn't turn on --the power light remained dark. I tried a different wall-socket with the same result. What's the first step? Regards, Jack Owens

Hi Jack (your profile identified you as John),

I'll do my best to help you resolve this problem. Here are three things to try:

1. The PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer is equipped with an auto shutoff that could cause the printer to "go dark" when it does not received data for a predefined period of time. Try sending a print job to the printer and see if it "wakes up" automatically.

2. Trying various power sources is a good idea, but it is also possible that the power cord could be damaged or not fully connected to the printer end of the cord. If possible, try the cord on another piece of equipment with the same voltage/electrical requirements to see if the cord is ok. Also, if possible, try another cord on the printer.

3. Try removing the power for 10 minutes so that the printer can reset.

If neither of these solutions help, please let me know. Your printer could need servicing.

I hope this helps,

    Dear Randy,

    "1. The PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer is equipped with an auto shutoff that could cause the printer to 'go dark' when it does not received data for a predefined period of time."

    The printer could not have gone to auto shutoff since it was not turned on. I don't leave the printer turned on. I only turn it on when I'm ready to print, and in this case I simply tried to turn it on, as I've customarily done since I've had the printer, and it wouldn't turn on.

    " is also possible that the power cord could be damaged or not fully connected to the printer end of the cord."

    I tried connecting the power-cord of the printer to a functioning wall socket and wiggled the cord at the printer end and repeatedly pressed the "on" button with no results.

    "Also, if possible, try another cord on the printer."

    The cord is an integral part of the printer.

    "Your printer could need servicing."

    That's what I assumed when I wrote you.

Workcentre 7238. What causes error code 124-315?

The serial no., product no., and billing count are stored at three locations; the MCU NVM PWB (IOT), the SEEP ROM (SYS1) on the Backplane (BP) PWB, and the ESS NVM PWB (SYS2). This procedure allows the data in all three locations to be synchronized in case of replacement of one of the PWBs, or due to data corruption associated with one of the following faults:
  • 124-324 (3 Billing Counter Mismatch)
    124-325 (1 Billing Counter Mismatch; Unable to recover Billing Counter during recovery)
    124-312 (Product No. Mismatch)
    124-313 (Serial No. Mismatch)
    124-310 (Product No. Failure: Not initialized)
  • 124-311 (Serial No. Failure: Not initialized)


  1. Enter UI Diagnostic mode ( Accessing UI Diagnostics).
    Select Adjustment/Others.
    Select Machine ID/Billing Data Settings.
    Select a PWB with the correct data.
    Select Start.
  2. Enter the correct serial number in the Serial Number screen and then select Confirm.

I can't find the Serial number on the inside of the printer.

To find the serial number on the MP830, open up the printer by lifting up on on the front shelf (the one with all the buttons and display). It should tilt back and and be held up on two pistons, one on each side.

There is a large cutout inside the center of the printer where you can see a folded over grey ribbon cable. If you look behind the ribbon cable on the right side, you will find the serial number.

Happy hunting.

HP has extended the warranty for some of these printers like the 7410. It's worth giving them a call. They just replaced mine without charge.

Have your serial number ready when you call HP. (800) 474-6836
Tell them you have a "broken carriage shute and print cartridge rejection".

Hope that helps.
