Question about Canon PIXMA MP760 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Pixma MP780 Series All-in-0ne Printer

Hello. Found your site while looking for solution for my printer problem. The display is stuck on "Please Wait", has been all day.

I've unplugged waited replugged; uninstalled reinstalled , checked computer configurationconfigurations. I thought that maybe it makes you wait if it needs new ink cartridges, which I have, but the ink arm won't slide to the middle so you can't put the cartridges in. Pressing the power on and off doesn't clear the Please Wait message, nor does anything else I've tried.

I have used the printer in the past without any problems. But then a few months ago it started to print a pale green color, no black print at all. I put in generic matched ink cartridges with no change. I ran the diagnostics, cleaning, maintenance, and still green. I then bought Canon's brand of ink, and was prepared to try these, but am stuck on Please Wait. Any ideas? Thanks for your time.

How can i reset canon pixma ix6520 printer?

hi there.
this is all i could find,if this does not work go to the link at the bottom.
Press "OK", "Yes" or "Close" to dismiss alert prompts, or press "OK" on the printer. Instead, press the "OK" or "Stop/Resume" button (down arrow/triangle-circle) on yourprinter, for 5-8 seconds, until the low ink indicator goes out, the power light stops blinking and/or the printer resumes printing.

Error code 5010 displayed on screen. I've tryed turning it off &on, unplugging it etc. nothing seems to work. It had been workin fine then one day i went to change the ink cartridges & since...

Hello Tina Auger! Welcome to FixYa!
Actually Error Code 5010 refers to the scanner issue of the printer. It is because of scanner malfunction. Mostly its because of some hardware issue but there are some solution which may solve this Error Code.

First of all turn off the printer and check the ribbon cables from the scanner, if they are a bit loose it can cause this error, These cable runs from scanner to logic board so they must be firmly seated and also check that scanner unit is must be unlocked, to check it Lift the document cover open and Slide the scanner lock switch to the release mark and Close the document cover.Turn On the printer now If problem is still there then go the other Solutions

First of all Re install the Driver of the Printer, Installing the latest driver may solve the problem. If problem not solved then try the givens solution:-
When there is problem of error then Resetting the device may solve the problem, it cleans the memory and there is a chance to solve the problem, To reset the printer

1. On the operator panel, press and hold the <ON/OFF> button for one second. (The display will go blank.)

Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer.

2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the <ON/OFF> button again.

3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.

I hope it may solve the problem. But if the problem is still there then surely it may an hardware issue, Either the lamp is dead, or the scan assembly is stuck or its a problem is main logic board.

In this case i suggest that if your printer is in warranty then go to authorized Canon center for the warranty claim, They will surely solve your problem free but If it is out of warranty then Authorized Service Center of Canon fix this hardware issue.

I hope you have a clear picture in your mind, Feel free to let me know if you have some confusion.

Printer error meaning

I found a couple of references to the error ?07,010.43?, it?s a generic message with lots of possible causes. Xerox?s official web site says to turn your printer off a contact their technical support. I did find one reference that said for them it turned out to be a wiper assembly stuck between the print head and the roller. I?ve never owned a Xerox printer (I?m an HP guy) so I can?t help you beyond that. Xerox?s support site for the phaser series is here:
