My Canon MP640 keeps turning itself off and I have to turn it back on and resume print several times to get it going again. Do I need to adjust a setting? Thanks!

If this is doing it during a print job then it is unlikely any setting will help. There are time outs for various things that could put it into sleep mode but all of those will reset the sleep timer as soon as it sees a print job.If this is the usb model then you can get this if it is plugged in the usb port at the same time as other devices. You will find that there will be one device it just wont play nice with. So as long as you keep the other one unplugged during printing it will behave,

If it is doing this in wifi mode then you have a problem with the printer itself and you will probably need to get it repaired or replaced. This will be covered under warrenty. If it isn't then you will want to check out the price of a replacement as the repair cost can cost more than that.

Will not power back up.


Hi
The waste ink are in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out, but after this you got to reset it after you cleaned it or it will still not work, you may not have to get inside to clean it try this first to reset it.
Reset CANON PIXMA IP5000 printer To reset the counter or to find out about it’s reading you have to use the service mode.
Turn off the printer, push the resume button and keep on pushing.
Press the power button and keep on pushing. Now let go off the resume button,
but not the power button. Push the resume button twice, then let go off all buttons.
You are now in service mode.

To leave the service mode, give the power button one push.

Push the resume buttons once, after that the power button once.
The first information page appears.
Push resume twice, then power once: You get the second page.

Newer PIXMA-printers print the first page as a test for the nozzles.
The second page contains a lot of information.

Our advice: Print the second page before and after reset of the waste ink counter.
Only then can you be sure that the reset was a success.

To reset the waste ink counter right now, push resume four times and after that power once.

Important: Before starting with normal printing again, switch off the printer.
That gets you out of service mode.

Then switch on the printer again and print, as you like
