Question about Canon MultiPASS MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Canon Multipass Mp730 says wrong cartridge and the alarm light is blinking. I changed the cartridge, but it's still the same message. I turned it off and unplugged it, still the same message. It won't print.

    The cartridges are BCI3eBK, C, M, and Y. It was working with the same cartridges until today.

I have the identical problem. After talking with the Canon Service Center here in Arizona, they stated that the problem is with the Printhead, not the ink cartridges. The choices are to buy a new Printhead, which are very hard to find now, or buy a new printer. I found one last Printhead in Tucson, which I can purchase of $50.00, and install it myself. Otherwise, the Service Center can do it for the price of the part, plus $65.00 labor.

Seems like the logical solution is to buy a new printer. The PIXMA MX330 is $99.00 or the PIXMA MX860 is $199.00, which are similar replacements.

I am leaning toward purchasing a new printer. We've had the MP730 for about 5 years.

"wrong cartridge" message appears, new


It could be due to "waste tank full" alarm; you may need to reset the waste tank counter.
I found a reset sequence for a MP730 printer in this website that works for F30 and F50 as well. Try:
Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter

1) Enter SERVICE MODE.---
By pressing Menu-Copy-#

2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [OK] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.

Skip step (6) since there is no [OK] key on F30 or F50 printers.

WRONG CARTRIDGE


Press the reset button if they can correct that problem. Maybe you can used the not genuine cartridge on your printer or it could be not properly inserted your cartridge. Try to power off the printer and check your cartridge then power on it again.

My toner was low, so I replaced it...it printed one page and now won't copy or print (cannon multipass mp730)


Hello,

If you changed the toner cartridge before the previous one was completely empty, it is possible the machine simply did not reset.

Turn the power off and take the new toner cartridge out. Turn the power back on and wait for a message telling you there is no toner.
When you get the no toner message re-insert the new toner cartridge.

If this does not clear the message, you will need to find the button to press to manually reset the toner cartridge from Canon.

Thanks,

Pat

I have a Canon MulitPass MP730. Wrong Cartridge message.


It's worth repairing, That error on a Canon is saying that the printhead is bad, not your cartridges. The part number for your printhead is stamped on the side of the printhead could be QY6-0049-000 but I'm not sure.
