Data Light comes on - boots up but stays on wait - please help!

I have just purchased second hand a Canon IRC2100 Printer, i recently printed some test pages fine and tried to install on my network but now printer does not start up fully - hangs on the wait screen and if i turn of and turn back on a config screen shows up with green data light on screen part. I been through the config screen options and done a diagnostics check etc and its passed - it times out on parralel flush? but im wanting to use the network option anyway. Any way of resetting? Is the printboard talking to the printer? Is it a hard drive problem? Please help ive just purchased this second hand and i hope i havent wasted my money?

Network printing was optional. The network connection is misleading; it is there for scanning. You may have to use it as a local printer and share it.

Canon bjc 240/orange light stays on


The blinking orange light could mean one or more of the following: -Home position error -Waste ink full error -Temperature sensor error -Printing position correction error -Cleaning error -Printer memory error I would probably clean the waste ink tank first. Make sure you unplug it first. Take the cartridge out and clean real good at the bottom.
