I have a canon ipf700 and power went off and now the machine is coming up with an error message of E161-403E. any help will be great

Hold down the roll/media button and the info button while turning on. Wait about 10 seconds and release roll/info buttons. You should get an "S" in the upper right corner; this puts you in service mode.

Push menu then scroll down to maintenance then right arrow to head replacement. Then get out of service mode turn off.

E161 403E means abnormal print head temperature. The print head needs to be replaced. Boot printer into service mode, and from the menu select head replacement.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.

C6380 hp printer displays message: ink system failure Oxc19a0022 I have reset the system and then cleaned the printhead but the message persists

Try resetting the printer a second time. If you have done this step, unfortunately, you either need a replacement print head or the printer needs service.

Print heads are not returnable if a new one doesn't solve the problem.

You can order a replacement print head either by phone or by entering your printer's model and serial numbers here: .

I wish that I had better news.

Make sure your print spooler service is running. This article in the Lexmark website about How to Restart or Reset the Print Spooler in Windows might help you enable the service again. If problem continues, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Replaced black ink but still says no black ink

please ignore that message and keep on printing, and if your printer does not print then dont use your printer for several days and keep your cartridge out of your printer for around a week and a half,but keep it safely so that its printing head is not damaged. and run the printer without cartridge for several times . this will help the printer in identifying that there is no cartridge in the printer and after that keep the cartridge safely out of printer and run after 10 days again by putting back your cartridge
that may help you, and after this procedure the problem which you can face is of dry ink .so apply some isopropyle alcohol on your cartridge print head (don't rub it)only put some drops of it on head and let the print head absorb it, this may be done when your cartridge s identified by your printer after 10 days and the error of low ink is gone.
Best of luck
Take care and please vote for me

"ink absorber is almost full, contact service center" - what does this mean?

Inkjet printer has waste ink absorber inside, sponge alike. The function of waste ink absorber is to localize and keep waste ink safe inside the printer and does not harm the electrical parts.
Waste ink is produced from print head cleaning process and borderless printing. When capacity of the ink absorber raise to about 90% then warning message appears.
You need to bring your printer to the nearest service center to get waste ink absorber replaced.
