Question about Canon MultiPASS F80 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The message is:
'Check the printer
Press Resume key'
The Alarm light is blinking.
When I open the cover the printhead with the ink tanks does not come in the middle.
So I can not print, scan or change the ink tanks!!!! Only the fax is working. Pressing the Resume key does not help, nether turining off/on the printer or computer.
I would appreciate very much any suggestion. Thank you.
On the right side of the print cartridge carriage there are two small felt ink pads. When they fill with ink somehow the machine detects it. Mine started with the flashing light and check printer error code and then progressed to a nasty grinding sound everytime I hit resume or tried to reset the counter. I thought all was lost, but kept trying. I found two pads, one square and one rectangular. They aren't very spongy but they are full of ink. They are only about an inch across. I got them out without taking the printer apart and repeatedly soaked them in a little water until the water was clear, then I let them dry and replaced them in the little trays where they came from. I cleaned the plastic fins that were nearby and coated with ink with a Qtip and rubbing alcohol. And I removed the print head and cleaned the muck of ink on the connectors with a Qtip and rubbing alcohol. Much to my suprise, after all of this the damn thing worked fine again when I plugged it back in.
