It's a multiple problem....there is no enough ink for the head managment sensor to understand the good function of the print head.
Print a nozzle check to see what is going on
Then come back for more information

I have a ipf710 and is always having difficulties with cyan ink. I have read somewhere that I should perform cleaning B. After cleaning I always get an error message. (I dont check the number any more). I turn off the plotter and clean the space under the printhead. Not very accessible, though. I carefully slide a piece of paper with a damp paper napkin under it. Turn on again and all works fine for some time, nozzle check print shows all colors ok.
Does anybody know the difference between cleaning A and B?

    to be short, cleaning a is light cleaning and cleaning b is heavy cleaning

    Update: after exactly one year of use, the printhead died. No cleaning accepted. So I bought a new one (horribly expensive!) and changed it following the steps as shown on the plotter screen. A nice surprise: the plotter retrieves all the ink in the old printhead to put it in the new one! Since then, seven months have passed and only last week did the plotter perform a cleaning (on its own will, I dont know if A or B). Nozzles, still perfect. Maintainence cartridge, also 7 months old, still 80% empty. Less use of ink also. I think I will start saving money for the next printhead...

    Guest, thank you. Mkoltowski, take a loan in the bank and buy a new printhead! Maybe later we will find a way of recycling old printheads.

Ipf 8000 error E161-403f


I think you need to manually move the carriage unit and replace the print head but go into the service mode first and see whether its asking to have the print head replaced before you spend any money.

Ipf 8000 error code 003800500-2f-2f


there is no enough ink in the head managment sensor.
Go to menu, test print, nozzle check, check the grids 12 pair of grids.
Check if there are any brocken grids.
After that you have to perform head cleaning B twice or more.
If the problem still remains then replace print head.
also perform firmware update to the latest version though the official canon site

Canon IPF 700 with a hardware error 03800500-2f30. Please help


this means that you have no ink flowing from the nozzles.
1.st if possible print a nozzle check from test print menu an see the result.
the other issue i can imagine is that you replace the print head without perform firmware update.
It is very important before replacing the print head to perform firmware upgrade (cd incl. inside the head box)
Also try a head cleaning B twice or more

My Canon iPF 9000 continues to have Hardware Errors 03800500-2F2F


Clean the area below where the carriage rests, where it dumps ink into the maintenance cartridge. Apparently the sensor is not detecting how much in is being dumped or not even detecting ink at all.

Hope this helps

Canon ipf 8000 Error Code E161-403F


I have had two of my Canon plotters give this error.message, I had to manually move the carriage unit and replace the printhead. On one of the plotters the error message returned, on the second plotter I was able to go into service mode where it asked me to replace the printhead. I just went though the motions since the printhead was brand new and I was able to get the plotter to function correctly.

Canon ipf 8000 print head problems


You need to boot the printer into service mode.

Hold down the roll/source button and the info button while you are powering on the machine.

This should get you booted into the service menu where you can then access the replace printhead function

When you have successfully replaced the printhead, reboot the printer to get out of service mode,

You may also want to check the firmware version of your printer and update it.

Updates can be found on the Canon website

Try to update the firmware version to 1.32 (latest version on www.canon-europe.com).
Then check the move of the carriage unit if any foreign object is on the move.
Last try a lubricate the shaft and replace the shaft cleaner.
