Question about Canon MultiPASS F50 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer went into alarm mode and won't reset after changing Ink.

I just changed 3 of the four ink tanks. I checked for proper seating. Closed the cover. The cartridge moves slightly but does not come to center when the cover is lifted. The monitor indicator shifts to a disconnect mode alert when the print action is chosen.

All connections checked - restarted program - rebooted computer.
I 'm at a loss. Thanks

There is an error inside, could mean it just needs a good cleaning and lubrication, could be paper scraps, dirty encoder strip, worn out purge assembly, any number of things.

Why is alarm light flashing? 5800


The ink absorber is full,The waste ink error is based upon time instead of actual volume in the tank. You can reset the counter by the instructions below.

(1) Turn off the printer.
(2) Press and hold the STOP/RESET button, then press and hold the POWER button.
(3) Release the STOP/RESET button, Next press and release the STOP/RESET button two(2) more times in
succession. Note: you are still holding the POWER button). The printer's carriage will "reset"
or move momentarily. If the above was properly performed the printer will enter the
"Service Mode".
(4) Press the STOP/RESET button 4 times, this will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp
will alternate (change) color with each key press.
1. Service/Factory test printout, including ink sensor check.
2. EEPROM - Info printout.
3. EEPROM - Initialization.
4. Reset the Waste ink counter.

I bought some new ink cartrige from Canon for my MP560 but it says that my printer doesn't recognize this ink, and the error U140 appears on the screen. What should I do? I know it's the right ink...


Before trying anything else, make sure that your refill cartridge is seated firmly in the moving printhead assembly. I had one that I had to play with a while until I got it to seat properly.

If you are not using genuine Canon ink tank replacements, you will get an out of ink warning. This may not be related to your problem, but if it is, you need to buy replacements that have the little computer chip that tells the printer that it has a new ink tank if you want the printer and software to think it has a full ink tank. I use a third party ink system with a resettable chip. When the ink tank is removed it resets to tell the printer it is a new, full ink tank. The downside is that, if I remove a partial tank for some reason, it resets and the printer won't warn me in time before the tank goes dry.

New black cartridge installed. Won't print. HELP please.


Try

Resetting the Ink Counter When an ink tank is replaced, the ink counter must be reset. The low ink warning is only displayed properly if the ink counter is reset.

Message Prompting Confirmation of Ink Tank Replacement
If an ink tank is removed, the printer will output a message prompting you to confirm replacement of the ink tank at the start of the next print job.
When an ink tank has been replaced, follow the procedure below to reset the ink counter. The low ink warning is only displayed properly if the ink counter is reset.
Important
If infrared communication is performed in Windows XP or Windows 2000, the printer will not output the message asking for confirmation of ink tank replacement.
Reset the ink counter from the printer driver when you replace the ink tank.

1 Check the message, and click Yes.

Note
Mistakenly clicking No instead, will prevent the low ink warning from functioning properly. If this happens, be sure to open the driver's Properties dialog box and manually reset the ink tank counter in the Maintenance tab.


2 Select the replaced ink tank, and click OK.
The dialog box allows you to select the replaced ink tank.
When both black and color ink tanks have been replaced, select both Black and Color.
If you have not replaced the ink tank with a new one, click Cancel.

Resetting the Ink Counter in Printer Properties dialog box

1 Open the Printer Properties dialog box and click the Maintenance tab.
2 Click Ink Counter Reset.
3 Select the newly installed ink tank, then click OK

I CHANGED MY PIXMA INK CARTRIDGE AND HOW TO RESTART?


Here's what you can do....

METHOD #1 - Easiest, but it disables the ink tank level indicators.
1) Ignore the low ink indicator, and press the RESET BUTTON to continue printing. If you press and hold the reset button for 5+ seconds, it will disable the counter for that particular ink tank. Refill tank now.

2) Repeat as needed.
You will get a dire warning that this will void you warranty, blah blah blah. If you do need to take your printer in during warranty and you've disabled ink tank counting, simple reset the entire printer as describe below for the wate tank warning, and nobody will ever know. SAVE YOUR CANON CARTS with a bit of ink left in- your printer will need to have Canon carts installed for warranty service.

3) Eventually you may be warned that the tank is empty. Press reset as above to disable and continue printing.

If you think this entire thing is ridiculous- you are right.
Get an earlier model that takes un-chip carts, like an ip6000, or ip3000, or i960. Much simpler and you get to use the ink tank indicators after refilling.

************

You can reset the entire printer with the WASTE TANK reset (below) when you need to clean or change the waste tank PAD (its really not a tank) See the above instructions for the i960 and similar for other Canon printer waste tank changes.
Here's the ip4200 reset options:
1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing
the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power
button. (DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED
lights in green to indicate that a function is
selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the
resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power
button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the
Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both
the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the

Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and
Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power
in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the
Resume/Cancel button the specified number of
time(s)
setting).

Time(s) LED indication Function Remarks
0 times Green (Power) Power off When the print head is

not installed, the carriage returns and locks in the

home position capped.
1 time Orange (Alarm) Service test print .
2 times Green (Power) EEPROM information print
3 times Orange (Alarm) EEPROM initialization
4 times Green (Power) Waste ink counter resetting
5 times Orange (Alarm) Destination settings After
entering the destination settings mode, press the
Resume/Cancel button the specified number of time(s)

to select the destination. For detail, see
"Destination settings procedures" below.
