Canon StarWriter 30 no longer turns on


Check the power cord to be sure it is plugged in well (on both sides if it is removable from the unit). Try a different outlet if you haven't already.

Check the machine for a small reset button or hole and try that

Finally, these machines run about $60...here's a link (see below) I found for one with free shipping....not my machine...I just found this for you.

When I try to print, I get a notification, error 5110, turn printer off and on and if problem persists, call service center. someone said to reinstall printer software, but I cannot find any on the...


This error is one of the most common issue with Canon printer. And as you mentioned, "If problem persists, call service center", I can recommend you do that. In fact canon gives another replacement for the printer having this error and if it isn't possible to get rid of it manually. Let me share my experience and how I used to fix this error.

First, turn off the printer, unplug the usb cable and power cord. Now, also turn off the computer (it needs to be restarted since the error is showing on the computer and will never go until you restart the system).

I hope you are not using longer usb cable other than the one that came with the printer. Sometimes long and defective cable cause this problem.

When you turn on the machine, open the lid (front panel door) and help move the cartridge carriage with your hand so that it'll move sideways. Sometimes when the carriage stuck, this happens.

If the above tips don't help, you need to call Canon and ask them your problem. If you are in the U.S. use this number to call Canon "1-800-OKCANON" or you can write using this form (Click here)
If you need for help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Canon MP850 error code 6A00 flashing lights. no


Hi

The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

This may be caused by:
  • Faulty carriage part so thatit cannot read film encoder properly. As a result, carriagepart move on uncontrolled.
  • Dirty film timing **** strip (Horizontal film encoder;available only ini series and above) so carriage part cannot read film encoder properly.
  • Another material (such as broken paper, etc) present in carriage path, blocking carriage part from moving.
To fix this problem you may try the following tips:
  • Check if any material present in carriage path; remove (clear) it
  • Check if film encoder is dirty; wipe slightly with moistened clothe.
  • At last, if carriage part is faulty you need to replace it.
Hope this will be helpful for you. Please don't forget to rate me.

Canon starwriter 400 won't print


Usually the problem is a plugged cartridge.
It is possible the ink cartridge is empty.
It would be best to buy another cartridge and try that first.

Canon IP4000 Error Code 5100


It is a carriage error.
Most times this is a serious error that requires a Canon tech to fix it.
Look at the carriage and see if there is something obstructing it's movement. If you recently had a paper jam, there may be some paper stuck in the path.
You should be able to move the carriage freely with the power off.
Let me know.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
