I have a IPF 8300 and everytime i try to print it gives me this error code: 03800500-2f42. It says that it is a hardware issue and that I should shut it down and try again but the problem persists.

I had this problem with the ink carriage jammed at the left hand side of the printer. I operated the lever in a hole on the top left hand side and eased the carriage along to the middle and pushed it back onto it's runners. All OK now.

it's a multiple problem....there is no enough ink for the head managment sensor to understand the good function of the print head.
Print a nozzle check to see what is going on
Then come back for more information

SOURCE: Hardware I/O error
I had the same problem and found no solution on the net, so I sent Samsung an email. Turns out I did not have the right driver (the original model on the printer says SCX-4521F, but there was a sticker in the box where the model shows SCX-4521FG. The Samsung help desk told me to install the scanner driver for the FG model and sent me print screen of the Printer Settings Utility. You have to set the output type to Grayscale (8bit mono) and the resolution to 150dpi.
Anyway, it works now. I had tried just about everything, I was about to put the printer back in its box...

We have an IPF700 and have been getting the 031300312f26 error alot upon warm up. We have found to fix this problem the best option is to push the print head back to its home position (far right) and unplugging the printer for 1 min or so (just to make sure its memory has lost all awarness we messed with it). Then plug it in and it goes fine... The problem we used to have is the same many of you are complaining about it drains ink like a vampire whenever you have to restart it. To cope with this we have upgraded our firmware which has drastically decreased the amount of ink we waist due to less cleaning and agitating functions. Hope this helps out someone it took us a while to get back any love for the canon but we are comming round again (I mean it worked great for 3 years why give up on it now).

this means that you have no ink flowing from the nozzles.
1.st if possible print a nozzle check from test print menu an see the result.
the other issue i can imagine is that you replace the print head without perform firmware update.
It is very important before replacing the print head to perform firmware upgrade (cd incl. inside the head box)
Also try a head cleaning B twice or more
