Question about Canon iPF700 InkJet Printer
I would really appreciate some help. My IPF700 was printing when the power went down. After that it started up doing a replenishing with ink cycle, during that it ran out of both MBK cartridges...I've changed them, then the maintenance cartridge went full....after changing that, the yellow and magenta cartridges went empty...changed them too, but now it asks for a new BK cartridge and I'm losing my mind. I'm afraid to change it, because after another replenishing cycle my Cyan will go empty and then I'll be out of cartridges and I would really need to print...Any ideas how to turn off this replenishing in service mode, or how to find the cause of this endless cycle?
I had the same problem and the answer was relatively simple: the head was not seated perfectly in place.
The left printing head of my IPF 8300 went bad and called for replacement (was popping an error requiring to reboot the printer and was almost 1000 days old), so I got a new head. When the new head was in, the machine entered the that replenishing ink spiral which first filled up the maintenance cartridge and then, after spending $100 to get a new MC, kept replenishing until one of my inks ran out and stopped with en error code. At that point I ordered 7 bottles of inks that were low and entered the service mode to clear the error and see what's going on. I ran nozzle check, and surprise, for the left head I just replaced printed nothing, completely blank! I put the old head back and the machine worked just fine so I called Canon to complain they sent me a bad head for $500 and they said not to worry, I have 1 year to get it replaced for free, but the problem is not the head but me not seating it properly. Too bad I wasted all that ink and a MC. To summarize, if the replenishing process takes more than 5-7 minutes after replacing the printing head, unplug the machine (will be only way to stop it) and restart in service mode (press power while holding down Load and Navigation buttons until the small S gets on the LCD) and print a nozzle check. If comes out blank for the new head, that is where the problem resides. Reseat the head and restart the printer. If problem persists Canon will replace it for free.

1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.
3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.
4. reinstall print test page
5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.
I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

Sorry to say this, I had a Canon Pixma and it wouldn't print unless you replaced empty cartridge, although I did have some success for a while longer by pressing OK button?
