Question about Cannon Canon i960 Photo Printer

Printer won't work

My printer was working fine, now it won't even come on or power up. I took it to a repair shop and they say I need a new "card" or in spanish "tarjeta", that cost $180. Would I be able to fine one online or is that the right cost? Also would it be better just to get another printer or could it be another problem?

Re: Printer won't work

Roni1, I wouldn?t pay $180 to repair a printer with three or four year old technology. I?m sure there is a difference in printer costs in Panama but here in upstate New York you can pick up a new name brand photo printers that range between $100 and $200 and that comes with a warranty.

No power. Machine was working fine just a couple of days ago. I noticed power was off. Unplugged,verified power from plug. I may add that we had no lighting storm and I have called Brother and been told...

I don't know what kind of printer you have, but before you consider paying 'an expert' or anyone to fix your existing printer, you might want to consider buying a new printer given the UNBELIEVABLE DEALS for new all in one printers.

I bout an HP Printer/Scanner/Fax from walmart online for $20 and it work just fine.

The replacement ink cartridges cost more (that's the gimmick for the low cost to buy a new printer).

just a thought

Looks like dead. when powering on, control panel shows "self test" and then nothing shows up on the panel and printer is dead.


Try to reset the memory on your HP Officejet. Do the following:

  • Turn off the power to the HP Officejet and unplug the power cord.
  • Hold down the "# + 9" button.
  • Reconnect the power cord and continue holding the button for another five seconds.
  • Turn the HP Officejet on, and the memory should be reset.
If this won't work, you can try to upgrade the firmware but you can only do this if the printer is still detected by the Computer. You can check control panel and see if the printer is listed as "online" or "ready".

If the above steps won't work. Your printer is deem defective and needs to be replaced. You can try calling HP support for more info. Here's their US number: 1-800-474-6836

Hope this helps.

My area recently had a power failure. Oddly, during the power failure I could still see a light coming from the Canon MG5220 printer. After power was restored, it was sometime later when I noticed that...

Unfortunately, it sounds like when the power was restored, the printer experienced a surge. If this was not plugged into a surge protector, then it's possible the switch was fried at the point of power restoration. It is important that with units such as printers, monitors, towers (computer), tv's, vcr/dvd players, almost any type of electrical appliance be plugged into a surge protector. However, even if this was true in this case - when a power shortage (outage) is experienced, it is necessary to unplug everything so that when the power is restored, nothing that is plugged in will be affected; as your printer was.
Now, you can have this fixed - either take it to a local computer repair shop; that might be able to fix it, or contact the manufacturer and inquire about sending the unit in for repair - regardless of warranty or not. If it is still under warranty, they may honor it. I am not positive they will for an accidental damage such as this, but it's worth calling them.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Cannot find repair shop for canon multipass mp730

In my opinion it would cost more to have it repaired than it is worth. Unfortunately, inkjets are designed to be thrown away when they break.

I don't know of any ink jets that have lights?

Displays "cannot clean" when installing new black cartridge.

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Ink shortage button flashing and fails to print out.

Make sure you have taken the protective tape off the cart printhead. make sure levers are down correctly and nothing is jamming the side travel of the head. It is possible you have defective cartridges.

Alarm and power probelm

If you already took the printer apart, check the socket where you connect the printer to power, check that the connector soldering joints and contacts are not broke.

The circuit area near the AC adapter socket on the printer is the power board.
If there is a fuse check it.
If there is smell or trace of burnt, that means that a component, usually a capacitor, had blown.

If you do not find anything it must be the AC adapter terminal cable, or the connector , that has a broken contact.

To test it you need to get a multimeter and measure voltage from the AC adapter connector. Alternatively take the printer to a repair shop , tell them that you want to buy a power adapter for your printer, and ask to test a spare power adapter first. Many shops do not charge repair fee for this, as long as it can be done on the fly, and printer must not be left in for repairs.
