Sanning problems for printer PIXMA MP 160




I can print off things from the printer but cannot scan from it – will not work. It has not worked since the printer inks ran out. Can you normally operate the scanner even though the inks run out? Since then I have had the ink cartridges refilled instead of replacing with new ones, and the scanner still doesn’t work.

Once I turn on the printer, the LED flashes along with the black and colour ink lamps and the alarm lamp remains still – even though I have replaced the ink.
I then tried clicking on the MP Navigator icon and when I press preview or scan, the scan gear box comes up with the message “printer maintenance in progress, scan after it is complete – code 2,114,0”. Once hitting the ok button, nothing happens. I tried the same progress the other day and then the message displayed “scanning failed”.
Are these problems happening because the printer has not got new cannon ink cartridges?

BTW can you please give me the phone number for the NZ Cannon technical support line?
Thank you,

Maria

Some printers can detect that the cartridges are refilled based ona barcode or scanning of the cartridges. Does this Cannon have ink tanks or ink cartridges. If it has intakes then the print head needs to be cleaned wth rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. If they are cartridges then it would be good just to buy the original cartidges. As far as the scanning goes this can be a direct connection to the printer going through maintenance. If it continues to not scan then you may need to uninstall the scanner. see if the scanner shows up in your scanners area. if not then it will need to be re-installed.

I Have an 80KVA APC Symmetra PX and one of the power module is not working I already change position with other power module and still not working


Hello

Please clarify. If you change the suspected module position and the module is not working, then the problem is with the module. If you replaced a working module in the non working module position and it does not work then there is a problem with this particular slot. Normally you would replace the faulty module with a working one in its slot and things would be clearer. I do not understand well the way you describe the problem, however each module has a micro-switch on the side which activate the start up of the module. have a look at it. i hope this will help

Cannon S330 printer


You guess seems to be right. The user manual says that 7 orange flashes is "Defective print head Contact a Canon service representative". So, the is not much more we will be able to suggest you on FixYa.com, unless there is a Canon technical rep who is also an Expert here!

Sometimes, all is not lost, they may have a special (undocumented) procedure they will ask you to try. Then, if it turns out that your printer is really dead, you may still be able to resell the ink in the classified ads or on eBay. Good luck!

Printing,hp deskjet3420


Hi Malcom,

The HP3420 is connected to your PC through the USB port and not through the LPT1/parallel port.

You have to change the port setting. Go to Start, Printers, right click on HP3420, click on Properties, go to the Ports tab, check/select USB, OK.

Alternately, you may have to re-install the drivers for the HP3420 and allow the program to Search for the printer connection. Clicking on the button Stop Searching will auto install it again to LPT1.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
