Question about Canon MultiPASS MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Horrible grinding noise

My canon mp730 printer wont print, it keeps on coming up saying error and the alarm light keeps flashing. When resume is pressed, it makes a horrible grinding noise. No paper gets pulled through and when opened the ink cradle does not move into its position for cartridge removal. Pressing the copy button the alarm goes off and the printer just sits there and all ink cartridges are full.
What could be the possible problem there?
Any suggestions?

The problem sounds like a broken or stripped gear in the printer. If the unit is under warranty I would contact the authorized repair station for that printer in your local area.

I have a Canon MultiPass MP730 that is flashing the Alarm and reads cartridge jammed. However I can move the cartridge manually. The machine won't do anything because of the alarm. How do I fix this?...


To fix this you first need to remove the ink and the print head.
Wash the 4 ink pads in luke warm water.
Keep running the water over the bottom of the print head until the water shows no sign of ink colouration.
Make sure all of the print head is completely dry before replacing it into your printer.
After restarting your printer you will probably see the alarm light still flashing.
Now hold your finger on the resume button for up to 2 minutes or until you hear a clunking sound.
Hold your finger on this button and the printer will fix itself and the alarm light will stop.

Check printer & alarm flashing.I cannot get it to reset.


Electric connection terminals scratched? Maybe short circuit. Use warranty from purchase for repair.
