Re: Alarm light on. F80

This worked for me on an F60 and someone else on an F30. Re: Check Printer error message on Canon MultiPass by watsonk (6/7/05 11:16 PM) reply + / - It could be due to "waste tank full" alarm; you may need to reset the waste tank counter. I found a reset sequence for a MP730 printer in this website that works for F30 as well. Try: Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter 1) Enter SERVICE MODE.--- By pressing Menu-Copy-# 2) Select TEST MODE. 3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE. 4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR]. 5) Select 0. [INK COUNT]. 6) Press the [OK] key. 7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key. Skip step (6) since there is no [OK] key on F30 printers.

Canon f80 multipass New five years ago never

Are you using Windows Vista or Windows 7? If so, the driver download page at Canon does not provide drivers beyond XP. Otherwise, go back to the XP (or earlier versions) driver downlaod site and download the MultiPASS F80 Software User's Guide. That may provide the answer to your problem. Also, if you are using unpopular, proprietary software programs the driver may not recognize the commands. Good Luck!

MultiPASS F80

Just to be sure, these are the drivers you've tried from Canon? Follow this link: Click on F80 Assuming those aren't working - what kind of error are you getting? I've looked for drivers elsewhere, but everyone seems to have the same driver. If you can give me more specifics on exactly what you're doing, and what kind of errors you're getting, I should be able to walk you through setting it up though.

1320 not printing all the time

Your USB cord may be too long, or you have too many USB devices running. Try removing any other USB device, except the printer and do a test print.

Check Printer Press Resume button

When your printing? thats the problem? Remove the USB cable then turn off the printer, then turn on it again and plug in the USB cable on the USB port. See what will happen?
