Canon C3200 / C1 Rip

Hi Canonman1,
In following up to this previous post:

We tried installing the C1 RIP. It is currently supplied with a power cord and a cable which plugs into the Video port. When we installed the C1, there was no port on the printer itself to accommodate the connection of the video cable. The one the scanner body plugs into is slightly smaller so this cable will not work. Another post I came across mentioned someone who had the C1 video plugged into a card beneath the network port on the 3200. There are no expansion cards on our printer under the network port. So, there is no place to even plug the rip into.

Our next step was to plug our network cable into the network port on the C1 where the LEDs are. We then ran both regular ethernet and crossover cable between the remaining network port on the C1 (next to the video port) and the network port on the 3200. (Our thinking is that the video cable may not be necessary).

Once the cables were connected, we powered up the rip. There was a problem. The power (fan and LEDs) come on for a split second then the entire C1 rip powers off. Each time we power cycle the rip, it does the same thing, everything on for a second, then it all shuts off. We disconnected all the cables (video and network) and power cycled, it is still displaying the same symptoms.

We sent the unit back to the place we purchased it. They claim they powered it up and ran it successfully on a 3200 unit they had in house and even printed out a Info sheet from the rip itself, sent the unit and the printout back to us. We powered it up again... same thing happened. Obviously, the printout displays the serial number for the 3200 they had it hooked up to but not the rip, so I don't know if it was really this rip that was connected.

In either case, we have a C1 rip that is not working. We have no technical manual to test the power leads to see if the voltages are correct in the C1 and we are left to believe that perhaps the video cable in some way is a checksum to make sure it is connected to a 3200 in order to then power up.

(One final note: we also set the printer to Int-face 3, for kicks - this was unsuccessful at establishing any power up or connection with the rip).

If you have any ideas or solutions, I really appreciate your help.
Thank you!

SOURCE: Canon MP830 power outage while printing

My MP830 did the same thing today. I thought it was toast. However through a Google search I found the following suggestion.

Unplug the MP830 for 20 minutes or more. Plug the MP830 back in and hit the power button.

To might great relief my MP830 powered up and is working just fine.
