Re: Problem in w7200

Hi - I had a different problem involving the carriage, but the solution may help you. There is (or should be) a pin on the carriage, visible on the right side when you lift the plastic pieces that hold in the printhead. This pin is about 2 in long and varies in diameter from about 1/8 inch diameter to 3/16 inch diameter. If this pin is not there, which in my case it had fallen down into the ink purge unit, the black will be shadowed by magenta. I don't know how to fix that part, but if the pin is gone you may soon have a bigger problem, which is the pin binds in the gears of the ink purge system and the printer won't do anything after that. Check for the pin, and if its gone and you live in an area where someone can service your machine call them up! In my case i was able to dig the pin out myself and the printer works again, but there is a slight overshadow of magenta.

Canon W7200 stays in initialising mode at startup. is memory bad?

From what I have discovered having had a total head failure, which the printer did not report, even though the prints were heavily lined, the printer appears to halt on any task until the problem is fixed

Speaking to a very helpfull service engineer, he advised that in all his years working on wide formats, Canons only have two problems, dirt or head failure. Never has he seen a card or any other electronic problem

My guess is that the head has failed, even though it doesn't report it.

Go into service mode during start-up and see if any of the self test functions work, fan tests etc. If they look like they are about too, but nothing happens, then I would look to the print head.

Pin w7200 canon

Yes, it had two springs. Once we pulled the pin out the printer started working again. The tech support person said this may cause magenta to show up along the edges of black lines, but we haven't noticed this problem. I attached a picture. Good luck!059318f.jpg
