Canon Pixma mp760 - won't power up or initialize

Printer/scanner etc always worked great altho I didn't use it too much... I always left it on and never had a problem... then one day I shut it off... next day when I went to use it I had trouble powering it up... when I unplug it and replug it it powers up but I keep getting this message:
When I press OK it powers off and won't power up again unless I unplug it and replug it... does anyone know how to fix this? I don't live near a repair facility nor do I have the money to fix it... Canon was no help at all... Printer always worked great and I didn't abuse it or overwork it... HELP...

I found this on another forum it'll clear the EEPROM so give it a go.

MP750 / MP780 waste ink counter reset instructions..

1. Service menu: Menu -> Scan -> Copy -> Scan (one at a time in sequence)
2. Select "TEST MODE"
3. Select "[8] ETC.."
4. Select "[4] EEPROM CLEAR"
5. Select "[1] INK COUNT"
6. Press the [OK] button.
7. Press the [Stop/Reset] button (returns you to the TEST MOD sub-menu))
8. press the [ON/OFF] button (which resets the printer)

TIP: Don't rush the printer as it can often take considerable time to respond to your commands. Frantic button pressing will just push the printer into snail mode (ie: slow as heck!).

Patience :)

Hope that helps... :)

try that, i stole it off <> -----

Canon Pixma MP760 no error code

First you must remove the printhead and power on again, if it only has printhead error then printhead is the culprit. Otherwise you must press a key sequence to display the numerical error code and know what part of the printer is failing, purge unit, feed assy, or dirty encoder strip.
Please rate my response!! Thanks, SF

Hello Mandb,
I also have ants in my PIXMA MP760 multifunction unit, I have just pulled it apart and reassembled it after removing several black broken bits relating to the hinges at the back of the scanner lid. The ants have seemed to have left home (wishful) but I would recomend you take to it with a phillips screwdriver, (carefully) or, if you don't want to do the surgery, take it out in to the sunshine and leave it there for about an hour, no longer.
Give it a bump every 10minutes or so, just to give the ants a help along.

If this dosent help, try coaxing them out with some ant food, but be there in person to stop them returning afta, a feed.

Failing this, take it to the repairman.

Do NOT spray bug spray into it, if the ants die in there, they will decompose, in the process it will corrode any fine copper tracks on the PCBs, it will only be fit for the dump then.

BTW, food colouring seems to be a cheeeep excellent ink replacement :)
