Error code 357 has to do with the print head & waste tank.

You can try and fix it yourself by performing the following:

-Turn off the printer.
-Open the top & both doors.
-Manually slide the ink cartridge carrier to the left.
-When you look back where the ink parks you will see a rectangular white assembly with 1 long & 2 short plastic tabs standing vertically.
-clean these carefully with a cotton swab & rubbing alcohol. They don't have to be perfect.
-NOW HERE IS THE HARD PART. Carefully reach around to the back of this assembly & move it forward. It should slide front to back easily. If it doesn't it's probably stuck with some dried ink.
Once this is free, slide the ink tray back, close evedrything up & start your printer.
The problem should disappear.

good luck!

##357 error code


The 357 error is usually caused by a paper jam or even a small bit of paper or such getting stuck inside the printer. First try using a flashlight to see if there's anything visibly stuck inside.
If you cannot find anything stuck inside then the best choice would be to take it into canon repair center and get a quote on fixing it. If it's under warranty still they can fix it for free.
There is a lengthy repair you can do, but unless you are knowledgable with doing printer repairs, I don't recommend it.

Does anyone know how to fix error code #357 with regards to CanonPixma MP780. I cannot get it to print even after changing the ink cartridge...the display keeps flashing "CHECK PRINTER" Please help


Hi
The most common cause of this error, is the purge unit being blocked somehow (small piece of paper, dried up ink, etc.), however, it IS indicated as a paper feed position error, and as such CAN be related to internal mechanical timing on the sheet feeder unit, or positioning of the purge unit in accordance to the positioning of the sheet feeder unit.

My first bet would be to take a flash light, open the top cover, and move the printhead to the far left, checking the purge unit for any visible obstructions or clogging ink

Error 357 the print head appears to be stuck


357 says the sheet feeder is out of sync with the drive assembly, needs to have the encoder wheel checked, and also the drive gears on the side of the feed assembly. Sometimes the plastic studs break leaving the drive gears just floating.

Canon all in one pixma MP 780 problem code ##357


Hi

This is an error message which refers to the position of the paper feed unit,or if the sensors that detect the paper is malfunctioning.

Take out all the papers,fan them a little and also unplug the power cord from the printer
Now,press the power button on the printer and hold it for 15 sec,to perform a power flee.

turn on the printer put,the papers back and check if it works out

it is possible to fix if you have 3 to 4 hours to kill, you have to dissasemble the printer completley and split the main unit inside into two(sheet feed and cassette feeder) they are connected by 4 screws, correct the timing(marks in red) on the gears auto sheet feeder and cassette feeder on both units and and rotate the cam shaft assembly to the start position

takes time but the fix works.
