My printer is not working, I have put in new ink, but this is not the problem. I purchased my equipment at a Staples store in Vancouver and I was informed they do not do repairs unless my printer is still under warranty. I have taken my printer in for cleaning, and I was informed that I need a new light, but I am having difficulty finding repair shop. I took my printer into a canon repair shop in Kamloops, BC and I was informed they only repair commercial equipment. Where can I take my printer for repairs in Kamloops, BC?

Many times , if we use refilled ink cartridge , then also we might get such error messages on the printer display .
Ensure that you are using genuine Canon ink cartridges.. but if the error is after changing to a new set of genuine ink cartridges..
try by cleaning the electrical contacts of both ink cartridge and the printer.. and also do a semi full reset..
I dont know the exact process that I have done before, however the trick is to zero your page count, and this worked twice for me. The printer figures your waste ink reservoir (actually a sponge) is near full by a page counter. There are articles out there on how to repair this physically but please dont go there, get a new printer or even better an less used MP730.
I have the identical problem. After talking with the Canon Service Center here in Arizona, they stated that the problem is with the Printhead, not the ink cartridges. The choices are to buy a new Printhead, which are very hard to find now, or buy a new printer. I found one last Printhead in Tucson, which I can purchase of $50.00, and install it myself. Otherwise, the Service Center can do it for the price of the part, plus $65.00 labor.
Seems like the logical solution is to buy a new printer. The PIXMA MX330 is $99.00 or the PIXMA MX860 is $199.00, which are similar replacements.
I am leaning toward purchasing a new printer. We've had the MP730 for about 5 years.
You might like to try purchasing a new Ink cartridge Carriage after Deep Head Cleaning 4 - 6 times. Sometimes it takes this number of times to clean the Cartridge Heads.
This has worked for me on a IP4000 Pixma.
