Immovable Cartridge & Printing problems

I have a Canon iP1000 printer that has the following problems:

 

a) When I open the door of the printer, the cartridge doesn't move.

b) When I try to print a test page, the following message is received "The waste ink absorber is full" and the "colour tank is running low". My black ink tank is full and I only want to print in black, so why am I unable to do so even though my colour tank is low? Also, how do solve the problem with the waste ink absorber?

My canon ip1000 printer show error "print head not available". but head already fix in place


The print head may not be proper electrical connection. Remove the print head and clean the electrical contacts on the ink cartridge and in the printer with methylated spirits, replace the print head and hopefully this will fix the problem.

I have error 5100 pixma ip1000


Turn off printer.
Remove both the cartridges from the printer. Use a clothe moistened with alcohol to clean the surface contact on the cartridges where the terminals inside the printers touches.
Return the cartridges and turn on the printer.

Error 5100 means that the cartridge can not be detected by the printer.

Hope it helps!

My Canon Multipass F50 has a "check printer" error and won't print. The ink cartridges will not move when you open the door (as if to replace). It won't even turn off to cycle it to clear the error,


I had a similar problem. Go to this page http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/inkjet/29693 and try the codes they suggest to reset the count for the waste tanks. Good luck.

Canon pixma ip1000 problem


you have to reset your printer


1. Unplug AC (and usb just for good measure)
2. Hold Start while plugging in...
3. While still holding Start press Resume twice.
4. This then allows for Removal of Ink Cartridges(if you are past the limit)... a very important step apparently.
5. Now repeat Step 1... Step 2
6. Now press the Resume 4 times (only blinks for 1st two presses !)
7. Should be ready...

Canon Problem


Well, you have to open the entire printer and reach out on that area to free the cartridge, it is caused by an obstruction on the gears of the head cleaner... remove that and have to wash it with water and then let it dry... place some grease to the gears so movement becomes smooth and last longer.

Keep me posted if you still have problems.
Hope this Fixya the problem.
