Some subtle meaning here perhaps generated by the printer software.
Check out the term in Windows help, but you may have to go to Canon support.

My printer power wont turn on when i press button

Try removing your printer cartridges and then the print head from the printer. If the printer powers up with the print head removed, then the print head is either shorted or clogged. If it's shorted out then you will need a new print head (usually cheaper to just buy a new printer). If you can clean the print head without damaging it, sometimes it will work again. Usaully a good 24 hour soak in alcohol or a cleaning solution will work.
