Hi Pete, your're printer is probably still good. If you haven?t done so you should run the nozzle cleaning utility a few times. Compare the first on with the second or third and see if it?s getting better. If yes some of your nozzles were clogged. If it?s close to being back to normal you can run the cleaning utility again or you can remove the ink cartridge carrier and clean the nozzles. I had a Canon printer similar to yours so it?s probably similar to yours. Your ink cartridges plug into a carrier which actually contains the ink nozzles. Remove the ink cartridges from the carrier, place a piece of tape over the bottom ink output hole and store them oriented as if they were in the printer (up). This will prevent the ink from draining to the top of the cartridge and possibly causing flow problems later. Tank the cartridge carrier and place it in a small plastic bin and fill with Windex till the nozzles are covered. Make sure you also put some Windex in the carrier itself in case the blockage is there. I use straight Windex (window cleaner containing ammonia for non-American types); I find the real stuff is better than the store brands when it comes to removing stubborn clogs. I also use a sealable plastic food container to soak the print heads in. When I?m done I snap the airproof lid on so I can save and reuse the Windex again. Once you?ve done that use a Q-tip to gently scrub the surface of the nozzles and let soak overnight. After the soak is done shake off as much of the Windex as possible and reassemble the printer. Make sure you don?t let the cartridge carrier dry out, that will probably re-clog your nozzles again. Run a couple of nozzle cleaning cycles to clean out the residual Windex and start the flow of good in again. If it worked your printer should be back to normal again. Let us know how it turns out and don?t forget to rate the posting.

it seems you open or unscrew the printer.
this may happen if the mother board has no nigative pole.
you have to reset the mother borad.
cannot do that from the available options
the reseting procedure is to take the motherboard out and you have to shortcut the battary for 10 seconds.
re install it , and try it

I am not a tech. I don't guarantee anything. It just worked for me. Here is what I did. uNPLUG THE PRINTER. The covers on the Pro 9000 are snapped on so locate the slots that look like a flat screw driver will fit. Insert the tip of the screwdriver and lift on the covers and they will come off.
Now, looking at the printer from the front, on the right side you will see a group of white gears with a black gear at the bottom. The black gear has a 'flag' that us used by the sensor right there. If you spin the white gear that is second from the top, it will lift the carriage to the hightest position. Leave it at that position.
On ther front edge of the area where the printhead slides from the right side of the printer to the left and back, you will see a small switch that is a safety switch that stops the printer from moving the print unit back and forth. I taped it down temporarily so that the printer thought the cover was on.
Next on the left side about 3/4s of the way down where the printhead would move to the left, you will see a small sensor looking up that sees the bottom of the print unit. Lay a piece of paper over that sensor so that it is in the shade.
BE CAREFUL and keep your fingers out of the printer. Plug the printer in and depres the power button. The printer shoud first cycle the paper feed area. Then, BE PATIENT, the ink unit comes to life and continues on its initiation. It should slide to the right and actually tap the frame once, then do the same move, but tap twice. Then after a bit, the left ink cartridge will light and the carriage will move to a sensor on the left and it will light up each cartridge, then it will lower the carriage for a second, then slide completely to the left and then the right. After several more girations, it will put the carriage where it belongs.
That worked for me. Good Luck
