Question about Canon PIXMA MX850 Multifunction Printer
I had the same problem after a paper jam. I removed all the paper and still had a same error. I read around the internet and ran into other Canon printers with similar problems. The error is caused by the print clean mechanism getting stuck. The suggested solution for other Canon printers also worked allowing me to fix my printer. First thing I did was turn off my printer. Second is to open the top cover allowing me access to the print cartridge area. With the power off, you can pull the printer cartridge carridge from the right of the printer to the left. Once you do that, look into the area in the right where the print carridge was and you will see two sponges in the bottom of the printer. Behind them to the left is a little mechanism that moves over the to clean them, I gently gave it a pull and it moved a little forward. I closed the printer and turned it back on. Error went away and it's working fine again.
Hope this helps!
