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

1 Answer

Canon MP730 won't print at all (blank pages).

Hi, Canon MP730 won't print at all (blank pages) after the paper was pulled out while printing (about a half of the page was printed). Tried Head Cleaning/Refreshing/Aligning - nothing worked. Please help. Thanks, OB.

    While copying a black and white document, it stopped printing in mid page. When I removed paper, a magenta spray pattern appeared across sheet, about 3/8 of an inch wide. After that, I tried several pages of nuzzle checks, and the colors (and black kept getting fainter, until after 3 or 4 sheets, no ink was getting on the paper. I replaced the print head with a new one, and still it won't print anything. Still works fine as a scanner, but I have to use my laser printer to show the scanned images. I hope there is a simple solution to fix this. It has been a handy printer so far, but the cost of professional repair is so high, I would be better off getting a cheep ink jet printer, and using the 730 only for scanning.

    While printing a doucment, printing suddenly went blank, without any warnings or signs of degraded print quality . It will not print in any mode (copy, fax, scan, photo print). It appears to be doing everything correct, except putting any print, or marks on the paper.

    My MP730 has also suddenly stopped printing. No warnings, signs of degraded print quality, or error messages. It will not print in any mode. Goes through a complete print cycle without putting any ink on the paper.

    I had a clogged printhead, yellow was clogged and black would partially print, magenta and blue printed fine. I tried cleaning per the instructions found here and then I got the message "wrong cartridge" nothing I could do with that, So I bought a new printhead, and installed it, my ink tanks are full and were just unwrapped from sealed packages, the printer will not print anything, totally blank pages, not a smudge, not a stripe, nothing,

    HELP this is costing too much to guess at problems,

    Black went out, first and color would still work. I thought ink was needed and bought new cartridge. Still doesn't work and now neither does color.

    The solution given to move the blue nozzle over the print head is not enough info.

  • retsekalb Feb 28, 2009

    My printer was printing all colors except black, but was very staggered and streaked.
    I carefully took it apart and cleaned it using distilled water with some Windex in it, but it wouldn't print anything after that.
    I don't want to waste $60 on a new print head if that is not the problem.
    I had read that sometimes the circuit boards on these go bad.

I don't know how to fax


The control panel LCD also provides menus to operate the copy and fax modes independently of a PC. One nice touch: the LCD displays small and large type on the same screen, allowing more information about a print job to show at one time. b.gif 21262659-2-200-dt2.gif
The flash card reader under the control panel means you don't need a PC to print photos.

The MP730, while easy to operate, lacks some of the advanced features you might find on separate printers or faxes. For example, the MP730 can't collate copy jobs. To make more than one collated copy of a multipage document, you have to place the document in the ADF several times. Nor can the MP730 sync fax numbers entered by hand or accessed from within the Windows Address Book (Canon doesn't provide its own fax/address-book software), so you may end up duplicating efforts. Nor does Canon's software create group dials from your address book on your PC or provide a cover sheet. Finally, the MP730 can't forward faxes to another number or hold a fax to send when nighttime low rates kick in, which other multifunctions do.

Still, the MP730 provides plenty of features we do like. Using the menus with the Photo Print mode, you can print a photo contact sheet, pick individual images to print, and set up the printer to copy or print onto high-quality glossy paper. In the Copy mode, menus let you print two reduced originals side by side or print the same image on the same page several times (useful for business cards, name tags, and so on). The fax engine distinguishes voice from fax, sending voice calls to your phone or an answering machine and sending fax calls to the printer or to buffer memory so that you don't have to get a second phone line installed for your fax.

Installing the MP730 software is slow but idiot-proof: You just pop in the CD and follow instructions, which require restarting your PC several times. Canon bundles the MP730 with ScanSoft's OmniPage SE, a lite version of the best optical-character recognition software on the market, and NewSoft's Presto PageManager 6.0, one of the best document-management databases available.
The MultiPass MP730 won't replace top-of-the-line printers and scanners, but its print and scan speeds keep up with other multifunctions' as well as that of most as midrange ink-jet printers and scanners on the market today. In our tests, it printed ordinary text at 6.4 pages per minute and printed CNET's high-resolution test photo in 3.7 minutes. For comparison, the Lexmark X5150 (only $149 but without fax capability or automatic document feeder) prints text at a more common 5.2 pages per minute, and printed our test photo in about 2 minutes. Canon's MP730 scans a page of black in 9.4 seconds and a page of color in 20 seconds; that's seconds faster than the HP PSC 1210. And the Canon makes copies in 18.7 seconds; that's almost twice as fast the HP PSC 1210.

Unfortunately, the MP730 delivers a mixed bag on image quality. When printing, better paper has a big effect. When we printed text on ordinary paper, for instance, it looked grayish instead of black, and a gray shadow haunted the edges of letterforms, while on coated (not glossy) inkjet paper, text popped out in a solid black and looked much cleaner. Our color photo on ordinary paper looked very dotty, had rough transitions between shades, made a blob of detailed areas, printed lines with jagged edges, and mixed inappropriate colors; coated inkjet paper improved detail and let colors appear in the right hues, though much too saturated. And on top-quality glossy paper, textures, shading, and transitions suddenly looked right, and we saw sharp, clear detail.

Grayscale scans on the MP730 when compared with other scans seemed overexposed, losing paler shades of gray along with some detail, while color scans showed accurate colors and fairly good detail despite somewhat grainy textures.

When I print on my Canon MP730, it always prints out a blank page after every print job. How can I fix this?


SOLUTION(S): Reset the Sheet Feeder Gears
If the power fails while the paper is feeding or during a print job, the paper feed gears will lose their proper
alignment. The reason is that after the power is restored the paper feed gears will attempt to return to the
home position, which may not be possible if the paper stop cam is not in the correct position.
PROCEDURES
1. Remove the sheet feeder from the unit.
2. Remove the sheet feeder motor from the sheet feeder assembly.
3. Remove the drive gear from its spindle.
4. Realign the lifting tray gear and paper stop cam gear.
5. Reinstall the drive gear and sheet feeder motor.
6. Reattach the sheet feeder to the print unit.
7. Reassemble the unit.
