I open the case to change the print cartiridge, but the cartiridge holders remain on the left hand side, and will not come to the middle for me to change. and the green on switch keeps blinking while it is on.

Please follow the instructions given below:
1. Disconnect the USB cable and the printer power cable.
2. Please disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
3. Then remove the cartridges from the printer.
4. Please reconnect the power supply back and turn on the printer.
5. If lights are blinking then printer encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
6. The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
7. The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and let us know if the lights are still blinking.
8. If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer.

9. However, if lights are not blinking then try inserting one cartridge at a time and check if you can see any lights blinking. If light blinks with one cartridge then that cartridge is defective.

IF the jammed paper tears and you cannot remove the paper either from the paper output slot or from the transport unit, or the jammed paper remains inside the machine, remove the paper following the procedure below. 1. Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. 2. Open the paper output cover. Remove the paper on the front tray if any.
Important:
    Do not touch the clear film (A). If the paper or your hands touch these parts and blot or scratch them, the machine can be damaged.

3. Make sure that the FINE cartridge holder does not hang over the paper. If the FINE cartridge holder hangs over the paper, move the FINE cartridge holder to the right edge or the left edge whichever is easier to remove the paper. When you move the FINE cartridge holder, hold the FINE cartridge holder and slide it slowly to the right edge or the left edge.
4. Hold the jammed paper with your hands.
If the edge of paper is jammed near the paper output slot, pull the edge of paper to the position where you can hold it with your hands.
5. Pull the paper slowly not to tear it, then pull the paper out.

6. Make sure that all the jammed paper is removed. If the paper is torn, a piece of paper may remain inside the machine. Check the following and remove the piece of paper if it remains.

How to change ink cartiridges


  • 1

    Turn on the Canon iP2000 if the device is not on. Allow it to power up for about 30 seconds.

  • 2

    Gently lift the cover of the unit with your hands. Lift only the top cover of the printer.

  • 3

    Wait until the print head moves to the center of the unit. It automatically moves to this position, allowing you access to all the cartridges. Do not try to move the print head manually, or remove a cartridge before this part stops and the light turns green.

  • 4

    Remove the section of orange film on the side of the new ink cartridge. Twist off the small plastic guard on the bottom of the ink cartridge.

  • 5

    Remove the old ink cartridge from the ink cartridge holder with your fingers. Press the tab on the cartridge forward and then pull it up and out of the holder. Slide the new cartridge into its place. Push down on the top of the cartridge to snap it into the unit. Close the cover when finished.

The instructions tell me to lift the lid, but I don't know how, it seems to be locked, is there something underneath I need to push or pull. I need to change the ink cartidges


On this particular printer there is no locking mechanism to access the ink cartridges. In order to open the cover, use a single open hand and place your fingers just underneath the screen on the front, and pull upward. The entire scanner piece should raise and a plastic bar on the right-hand side will lower down to prop it open.

If you're having a lot of trouble opening it, you may want to check around the sides of the printer to see if there is any tape leftover from when the printer was packed in its original box. When they ship a printer it is always covered in tape to make sure that nothing falls open or breaks before it's delivered, and there may be a piece of clear (almost invisible!) tape left over preventing the printer from opening.

Once it's open, the ink cartridges should come to the middle. Press down on the small lever on the print head (the ink cartridge holder) to pop the cover open so that you can install the cartridge.

Hope this is helpful!

My printer won't print multiple pages


The Toner is running low. What is happening is you are low on toner in the MIDDLE of the Cartiridge. Take the cartridge out and jently shake it left to right (be careful you dont make a mess) this will distribute the toner evenly. time to buy a spare as this wont last much longer.

How do i know when to change ink?


Your print properties may have a gauge that shows remaining ink levels. If not with the ink is running out you will notice the ink not being as dark or vvid. The rule of thumb is have spare cartiridges on hand because you will run out when you need the printer the most. Good Luck, Tim
