I want to see you get this resolved. There is a problem with chips in the yellow tanks for sure. So, when Canon replaces them you are going to have to go in your profile here and rate each of these Ask Me requests to me a FixYa. in order to close these work tickets out.

We normally have people respond via comment, you've created several new threads just in communicating. Don't worry too much its okay; it happens. Just remember to close them all out with a FixYa so they aren't open in my profile.

Regards, and best of luck down there. I'm on the west coast of the US and its 4am and I have a full schedule until 9pm tomorrow.

Will Chat later.

    When you contact Canon, SA you can refer to us here at And that we referred you to them on this particular issue with the bad chip in the Yellow Tank. We have a worldwide reputation for excellence in service and support and just presented at the CES in Las Vegas.

Scan to e-mail

To be able to scan to email, your machine must have the correct hardware.
The following addon board and kits must be fitted:
1 Network Printer Kit [In South Africa we use the GA 1190]
2 Scanner Upgrade Kit [In South Africa we use the GA 1200]
3 Extended Keyboard [In South Africa we use the GJ 1040]
Once the hardware is fitted to the machine there are a few more steps to follow:
1 The machine must be connected to the network. [network must be on the internet]
2 An IP address, Subnet Mask and the Default gate way must be entered in the machine.
3 The DNS server must be entered through your internet browser.
4 The SMTP address must be entered through your internet browser.
5 The SMTP client must be entered with a valid email address through your internet browser.
6 The email section must be setup in the internet browser.
That should do it for you.

Usually they are on the left, but some will have two batteries both in the back one on the left and one on the right. They're located on a circuit board and will reset everything. Now, understand some printers do not have a battery. Canon's are the worst on this. I can do more research later.

BTW, I'm about to call it for the day and I have a really full schedule tomorrow, but later in the evening I can appy more time if you don't find the solution. The battery is in there and d.a.m.n the warranty in my opinion.

More than one ink tank (yellow) is inserted

The best solution for me is to get rid of the printer. If not South Africa, your assistant plans could maybe work for me. the problem is the exchange rate between SA Rand and $.

Thanks for the suggestion
