Question about Canon MultiPASS F80 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I found a 14" long thin strip of plastic at the bottom of my printer, a CanonMultiPASS F80, underneath the print cartridges. There are small cutout holes at each end, one square, the other rectangular. The first set of numbers on it are : QA4-0572-OOT, second line 04/02/cav.027 then PWB-RUHLATEC. Could you tell me where this goes? The printer had been working fine, I had just replaced a couple ink cartridges when I noticed this plastic strip. It now doesn't work and the display says "cartridge jammed". I searched for some help on Canon's site and on the internet, but found nothing. Please advise. Thank you very much.

I have the same problem and many Canon users , i try a trick that mayby solve this and last but not least ... Mayby the only cheap solution for all print users !!
My problem .. was looking for a cardrige solution ( IP4300 ) because 4 (of 5) cardrige leds are dimmed off and need to be replaced . I just order 5 adopters and 5 new with chip for all the five cardrige . Problem : The chip uses memory and that makes it very hard to reset . But i have thinking .. mayby this is somthing ..
What you read is new, experimenting with this idea is all at your own risk !
Here is a simple markable solution Unique !!
A - First you need all 5 brandnew cardrige with chips ( please keep all ink preventions inplace )
B - You need is a 4 poles - 1.50 / 2.50 meter +/- telephone cable
C - (five) (new) OEM cardrige without chips
D - Tin and a somthing to solder
E - 5 old chips for adopting the connection outside the printer
F - A box for the 5 new chiped cardriges
1 ) Make of 1,5 / 2,5 meter a 5 pcs of 30 / 50 centimeter
2 ) Solder on each lengt a old chip (this is functioned as a adopter) but first remove all the (useless) electronic components and place them on the cardriges
3 ) Solder the other site of the cable to each new chiped cardrige cq / toner that still sits on the new orriginal cardriges ( our make a alternative contact if you dont want to solder )
4 ) Tape the 5 new cardriges together and *
5 ) Put it in the box and give it a save unremovable place **
6 ) Put the (5) oem cardriges with the empty old chips ) in the right ink location(s)
* ) Looking into the new cardriges : this needs a box because of the intervering with the led this not only makes it nicer but mostly because of the outside light influence .
** ) Dont turn the kid upside down our shake it . If you do , the led indicates that the cardriges are empthy our low and the countdown proces for the chip will start !
I wait for arrive of the new ones, anybody who try make a handshake !
See you soon

that sounds like the indexing strip for the print head.
It may be accesible when you open the printer to replace ink carts. there will be a pin or hook on either side of the printer and you should see a slot under the print head that the strip passes thru.
the L on the strip is for LEFT this end goes to left side and there is usually a spring to keep it under tension on one end
IF this strip is damaged the print head will not move correctly and therefore not print correctly

I suspect that your have a damaged refilled cartridge. Also, you may have a clogged nozzle. Canon printers are sensitive to the quality of the ink used in the cartridges and refill ink sometimes does not meet the manufacturer's specifications. You can check this by inserting a new OEM cartridge, running the deep cleaning utillity three times and a aligning the printhead. The other problem may be that the electronic chip on the refilled cartridge may either be damaged or blocked by dried ink. In any case, you need to discard the failing cartridge and replace it.
Let me know if this solves the problem. Thanks.
