    I have talked to a repair man after having this same error. What we did was take the paper out and reload it and turned it back on and everything works great. No problem printed right after and have had no problem.
    Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: ask for error message

I have seen this problem being caused by Ink tubes.They will get warped.You can check them by reaching inside and feeling for them.When they are new,they should be flat and against the flat railing.Also you can visually inspect them by pulling them slightly down and look for a tear in the outer jacket.If there is a tear,you have to replace them.
Hope this helps

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.

Loading roll paper printhead path type 1


Switch on & observe the carriage behavior for hitting right ot left frames. Clean encoder with dry cloth to avoid ink marks on it & also check for damages.. if found replace it, check..
Enter in to service mode, scroll to carriage test, enter. Check for the result, if its failed, replace it..
Entering in service mode: Power off the printer by using through front panel power switch. Hold the color key switch on the printer using power switch mounted on front panel.Wait till "initializing" appears release the button, you can observe "service test" on panel scroll to carriage test> enter.
I hope you can solve the issue..

Tried upgrading Canon iPF710 firmware from 1.35 to 1.40 on 2 separate plotters and received a !Error E196-4040 Call for service message. Plotter will not come to a Online status.


Power off and unplug the printer for several minutes. On power on the printer had the same "ERROR E196-4040 Call For Service" after Initialization. Next start the printer in Service Mode, turn on the printer while holding down the [Paper Source/Feeder Selection] button and [Information] button until Initializing appeared in the display. An "S" will appear in the upper right of the version display. Power down and do a normal Power On and the printer should do a normal initialization and came On Line.

My problem is after claibration i receive a message POWER OFF AND CHECK PRINTHEAD CLEANER PATH


Something is blocking the printhead cleaner assembly from moving forward and backward.
Turn the plotter off, open the printhead cleaner access cover (RH side) and see if you can move the cleaners to the front of the machine.
If you can move them fairly easily, then try (with the plotter still off) to move the carriage assembly (holds the printheads) to the left of the machine.
Check the condition of the carriage belt for frayed areas or missing belt teeth.
(I suspect a worn out carriage belt is causing the problem)
With the cleaner assembly to the front, and the carriage to the left, turn the plotter back on and see if the error continues.

Hi,
Printhead failure this is.

Turn the printer on.
Following initialization,
use the Down Arrow key to scroll to the Ink system menu icon and press Enter.
NOTE:If the error code appears during initialization press the Enter
key to allow printer to complete the rest of the initialization process.
Scroll to Replace Printheads and press Enter.
The printer should now move the carriage to an accessible position.
Open the top cover.
Remove all four printheads.
Turn the printer off using the main power switch located on the back of the printer.
Turn the printer on.
Following initialization, insert one printhead at a time, starting with the black printhead.
Determine whether or not the printer accepts the printhead.
Turn the printer off and repeat steps for each of the printhead.
Replace the failed printhead.

Hope this helps
Regards
