Hi

Make a update of the newest firmware (1.34)

Start the plotter in the service mode.

Print the nozzle test pattern (service mode / adjust / nozzle)

If the pattern very bad, change the printhead.

The 2F2F error means: non or bad ejection of ink.

kind regards.

Liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz

I changed the print head (the right one) and it is now fine.

    This error can occur if the ink has run out in any carts. My iPF8000s printer threw this error and then shortly displayed PC cart empty. I replaced cart, which allowed head to get ink and error was resolved. So successful nozzle detection requires all ink colours to be available to print head... simple solution, but easily overlooked if the ink monitoring is turned off. :-)

Hardware Error 03130031-2E23 Turn off printer, wait, then turn on again I done this twice and it does not fix the problem, it just repeats the same message. Any ideas what the problem is?


This error on the Canon iPF-605 wide format printer means that there is a problem with the paper cutting knife. The knife (black block) should be at the left front side in it's rest position.
Powered the printer down and moved the knife block from right to left, powered on and voila: problem solved ! Thanks Canon support!

I have a Canon ipf 700 and am getting a code: 03800500-2F2F hardware error. Could someone please help me. Thank you.


03800500-2F2F Head management sensor error

The head management sensor detected an ink discharge error. A sensor sensitivity error was detected during head management sensor position adjustment.

Print head, head management sensor, or main controller PCB

1) Start by replacing the print head.
2) Visual check for any foreign substances around the head management sensor.
3) Replace the head management sensor.
4) If continuity of the cable between the head management sensor and the main controller PCB is abnormal, replace the cable.
5) Replace the main controller PCB.

Canon IPF 700 with a hardware error 03800500-2f30. Please help


this means that you have no ink flowing from the nozzles.
1.st if possible print a nozzle check from test print menu an see the result.
the other issue i can imagine is that you replace the print head without perform firmware update.
It is very important before replacing the print head to perform firmware upgrade (cd incl. inside the head box)
Also try a head cleaning B twice or more

Error code E141-4046


Hi we have a big problem with our Canon IPF 8100 printer. We use it since 1, 1 and 1/2 years. We print 2500 A1 pages every week.
Today the following error appeared:
Error E141-4046
Call for service
We read another post about IPF 5000 and it was written, that it is a page count error.
We entered Service Mode but we don't know what and how to reset.
P.S. the problem is that it's Sunday in our country and none of the service companies work. We have a lot of copies to print.

Please help. And thanks.

My Canon iPF 9000 continues to have Hardware Errors 03800500-2F2F


Clean the area below where the carriage rests, where it dumps ink into the maintenance cartridge. Apparently the sensor is not detecting how much in is being dumped or not even detecting ink at all.

Hope this helps

Canon iPF 8000: Hardware Error 03800500-2F2F and 03800500-2F30


it's a multiple problem....there is no enough ink for the head managment sensor to understand the good function of the print head.
Print a nozzle check to see what is going on
Then come back for more information

We keep getting a 03800500 2F-2F hardware error message on our Canon IPF 9000s printer. What is this exactly? We changed both heads an we keep getting this message. Thanks Louis


That is hardware error, if you have 1.2 or earlier firmware it can be a system bug that you fix updating firmware. Call Canon to get instructions on how to update firmware.
