Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My PIXMa MP 780 will not print.

I get a "Check printer" error. I have checked the ink tanks, the paper feeds, and everything else. I can find no apparent reason for the problem.

Hi Sir,

Try the following steps. first of all we need to check the hardware of the printer, this can be accomplished by simply making a black an white copy of any document from the printer. it checks the scanner lamp as well as the printing. if everything goes fine,the printer is ok,its solely the issue with the software,hence move to the following steps,
1.goto the Start button--->control panel-->printers and faxes >now check the status of the printer icon,do you see any printer icon. if its greyed out,it could be a connectivity issue. unplug the cable and replug it to a different USB port. Check if your computer gives a "Found New Hardware" Balloon on the right hand corner of the screen.
if not
goto Start-->run--->type devmgmt.msc in the run box. this should open the device manager for you. if you see any yellow exclamation symbol beside the entry,it shows that the drivers aren't in good shape. so if your printer came with a cd try updating the printer driver or else download the drivers from the internet and install it.
At any point if you need a free assistance from a technician, you may log into www.techbuddies.org as their technicians provide freee technical support,you can leave a message on their chat and they'll get back to you ASAP.

6A00 means the cleaning assembly on the right where the printhead parks is jammed. Usually just gummed up with old tacky ink. To clean it requires taking all the covers and scanner off of the top and removing the print engine to access the purge assembly. It can be washed in a sink but it's a messy job.

Canon Pixma MP 800 When it prints it just feeds the paper through there is noting printing on the paper. How xan I fix it


clean the printer head using the printer software tools, do these 3 to 4 times then print a page, if still work check your ink level, if you have a full ink cartridge and there no printer error aside from this have your printer head check by a qualified tech

Won't print black ink text; looks like faint watermark print; ran all maintenance check several times (nozzle checks, etc)


Remove the black cartridge and soak it with an alcohol free window cleaner soaked paper towel let it sit on the towel for a good thirty minutes then wipe clean and put back in printer run nozzle check if necessary.

Answer Part 1 of 2

An error has occurred in the printer. The number of flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take appropriate action.
Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error
Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
Three flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
See Paper Jams
Four flashes: Ink tank is not installed properly
Open the Print Head Cover and check whether an ink tank is installed. If an ink tank is installed, push the button of the ink tank, and reinstall the ink tank properly.
Five flashes: No Print Head installed, or Print Head failure
Install a Print Head.
When the error continues, contact a Canon service representative.
Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the printer. Eight flashes indicate that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so that you can continue printing.
Important
If this error occurs, replacement of the waste ink absorber and maintenance of the printer are required. Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, it cannot be printed until the Waste ink tank is exchanged.

Nine flashes: A specified period of time has lapsed without receiving a response from a digital camera or digital video camcorder / The digital camera or digital video camcorder connected is not compatible with this printer
