Question about Cannon Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have a Cannon S300 which has been working fine. It started very eradick printing, if I had 12 songs listed it would only print even numbers, the errow light flashes 7 times and I removed the printing head but still has the same problem. Some one told me I need a new printer. I do not print on a regular basis and it is around 8 yrs. old. If you can help me I would appriecate it. It has been a real good printer, never has gave me any problems. I am not a computer wizard, probaly pretty close to being a hack. Thanks. Jon Armstrong

Jon,

I'd say if you've had a printer for 8 years, you've got your money's worth.With the cost of printers today, and with the features they have, you may be better off to purchase a new one.

But just for the sake of trying...have you made any changes in your computer lately, such as operating system changes? Upgrades? System restoration?

I would try to uninstall the printer driver and reinstall it just to be sure. It may have been corrupted.

If you need some help with that, just comment back.

    Another expert (Stickx) recommends the following also:



    "this light blinking is an indicator of a cartridge problem either there is a stuck or loose cradle, open the printer and check and clean your cartridges with denatured alcohol don't use rubbing alcohol in that it contains 75% water and this can damage the contacts. make sure you clean the contacts in the cradle also if this does not work power down the printer for two minutes and re start it."



    Try that before reinstalling the software.

Cannon multipass F60 scanner/printer striped color printing


What you have is a dried up color cartridge. You can try to use the <clean print heads> in the diagnostic tools section of you priner software. (usually, just try to print something & the window will appear) Sometimes you have to clean heads, then print test page like 2 or 3 times before it clears up. If that doesn't correct it, don't worry. Have your color cartridge filled (staples, office depot, & other stores do it cheap) - or - replace it with a new cartridge. You may have to run the clean print heads program after installing a new cartridge, but this will definitely fix your problem.

My Canon S300 printer is flashing green, then 8 oranges flashes (waste tank almost full). What exactly do I have to do to resolve the problem?


This procedure will print out information about the EPROM:

2 EEPROM information printing
a) While the printer is powered off, hold down the RESUME button, then press the POWER button.
b) When the POWER LED lights up, hold down the POWER button, and press the RESUME button twice.
c) Release both the POWER and RESUME buttons, and the service mode is entered.

<< Note: the printer will cycle through and then the power light will stay on steady>>

d) Press the RESUME button twice.
e) Press the POWER button.
==>EEPROM information printing pattern will be printed.

If a report is printed, then you know you have done the steps correctly. The top line of the report will look like this:

S300 P=V 1.00 Destination=000.0 D=095.5 Page=05716 CH=0000 BK=(000) C=(-01)

The number after "D=" is the waste tank counter. To reset this to zero, repeat the steps above except for step d) you will press the RESUME button four times. (Also, you may have to press the POWER button in step e) twice).

Repeat the steps to print the information and the counter number should be zero. Mine changed from the above line to this:

S300 P=V 1.00 Destination=000.0 D=000.0 Page=05717 CH=0001 BK=(000) C=(-01)

Blinking green and orange lights!


That is the code for a bad printhead (the part that your cartridges go into. It operator replaceable and I beleive it comes with instructions. If not, they are listed on Canon's site. You should be able to get it at any office supply store. I beleive the number is BC-24. That should do it Ed
