ok I figured out what to do. Open the over take out all your ink cartriages. Then flip the print head level on the left hand side up and squeeze the top of the print head (where all your ink sits on) and lift it up. You may want to blow off any dust that may be in there and put the peint head back and replace al your ink put the level down and you should be good to go if not you may have to replace the head.

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

you can solve this error code by removing the purge unit (take care of the ink).
Then you have to turn upside down the unit to check the gears. There is a white gear that moves in the ''air''. you have to re adjust the gear to transfer the move normally.
Then the problem dissapears.
Also you have to check if the motor is still moving.

Locate the STOP/RESET/RESUME button on your printer which is represented by a triangle within a circle on the body of your printer and is usually in red, white or black as pictured below. With the reset button located hold it down for at least five seconds and then release it.

I have changed all ink cartridges on my canon pixma ip4200 printer and it now doesn't work, the green and amber lights flash for 11 times and the cartridge carrier doesn't move. Please can someone advice...

From Canon Help Files.

Automatic Print Head alignment failed
Possible causes are as follows:
6128_image_6.gif A4 or Letter-sized paper is not loaded on the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, then load one sheet of A4 or Letter-sized paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Automatic print head alignment cannot be performed using paper from the Cassette. For automatic print head alignment, always load paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.

6128_image_6.gif Print Head nozzles are clogged.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, and then print out the nozzle check pattern to examine the print head condition.

For information on how to print a nozzle check pattern, see "Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern."

6128_image_6.gif The Paper Output Slot has been exposed to a strong light source preventing correct Print Head alignment.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error and move the printer to a darker location.
After carrying out the above measures, if the problem continues after aligning the Print Head again, press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error, and then perform manual print head alignment. For details on manual print head alignment, see "Manual Print Head Alignment."

What cause the Error hardware 03130031-2F49 ?

Problem :
For errors 2618, 2F48, 2F49, 2F50, 2F51, 2F52 randomly occurring please follow the steps below.

Solution :
If the printer has the latest firmware installed (Ver. 1.25 or higher - iPF8300 Series), you only need to do the following:

1. Check if the Status Print or Print INF files indicate which print head experienced the error and replace it.
2. If the specific print head failure cannot be determined, replace both print heads.
NOTE: With the previous low level firmware installed, any printhead damage may have spread to other components. Upgrading to the latest firmware version prevents the other components from being damaged in the future. For the initial failures with the low level firmware, you must replace the other components that would have also failed.

Canon iPF 8300: Hardware Error 2F48

Canon have a Technical Bulletin regarding this error (TP11 3337d.pdf). In my experience it starts with E161-403F/E and if you get past this in Service Mode it cannot detect the paper size (the multi-sensor lights on the carriage do not work). After re-seating the flex into the PCB I got the 2F48 error. I think it is related to poor ink flow at some point.

The bulletin recommends (after updating firmware) you:
-Turn printer off
-Remove both heads and dispose of them (Can carriage EEPROM corrupt new heads? $1000 in the bin?) - bulletin states heads MUST NOT BE REUSED so seems like they mean it.
- Replace Carriage PCB - another cost!
- Turn on in Service Mode - WITHOUT HEADS INSTALLED YET
- Turn off (clears errors)
- Turn on in User Mode and install heads as normal
- Check ink is flowing into heads - if not you may well fry another head so you need to get hold of a Syringe Kit to pull it through manually (don't ask me how!)

The bulletin also then - disgracefully I add - goes on to say that if this doesn't work change the Main PCB as if the $2000 outlay to do so was an arbitrary amount of money to pay to get the clearly mal-designed printer to work again!

Good luck anyone reading this, I'm about to do this myself today on my Canon iPF8300S - but before I hook out the Carriage Relay PCB and heads I'm going to connect a new flex from Main PCB to Carriage PCB and hold it in the air while the printer initializes (chasing it through the machine is a ballache if not required). The crushing of the flex by the chain/against plastic mount is far too common - and a known issue since ipf8000 at least and definitely worth a try if more than one head error occurs.

Canon Hardware Error 03130031-2F50

My printer just gave that code, and Canon fixed it. It has to do with communication between a head (that code say's right head, is what tech said) and the driver board that is on the carriage.
To fix mine, they replaced the carriage and both heads (because if one went bad, it could take out a new one as well).

Error code 5200 means the print head temperature is too high. The only was to resolve this error is either replace the print head or replace the logic board. The print head is available, part number QY6-0061 but you will struggle to find a logic board. The only other thing you can try is resetting the EEPROM on the logic board, this sometimes clears the error. A service manual will show you how to do this:
