First try the following tips..;
Remove all the cartridges, turn off the printer, disconnect the cables like usb, ethernet, power cable, leave it Off for few minutes (5 mins min.). Clean the contact points on the printer and on the cartridges using a small ball of cotton dipped in alcohol/spirit/acetone.
Now switch on the machine only with the power cord connected to it. Leave it On for few minutes, and then put it Off.. Connect the usb/ethernet and again power it On while you keep pressing the power button and the cancel button.

Install the cartridges and check whether this helps or not [you also need to check drum's "waste ink tank", if it's full, remove the waste ink and do some possible cleaning with it].
If the above tips don't help, you need to call for a Service from the Canon, there must be a fatal system failure with the Machine.

I can only wish you good luck for now.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Well, now, remove the drum and all the cartridges after that power on the printer without anything installed, leave it for few minutes and watch what error message you can see. If you can't see any error message like "Insert Cartridge" or "Insert drum" etc ... etc.. then there's internal mechanical problem with the printer/machine which will not be able to fixed without the qualified technician from Canon. You need to call the Service Center for servicing so that they can inspect it personally. Possibly the board could be the culprit, in that case, it'll be hard to get it repaired since most printers have not spares available in the market, never you can give a try, and perhaps, they could provide other alternatives.




    If you see any error message, firstly please install the drum and then reboot the machine again, check the error message, Is it asking for cartridges? then install the cartridges one by one and check the error messages every time you install a cartridge. If you see no error messages when you install a cartridge, then remove and skip that rather install another. You better try with another cartridge when you see an error in place of the one you just installed. If this is the case, definitely your problem will be fixed after you replace the faulty cartridge.




    On the other hand, your only option is call for Service.




    I wish you Good Luck.




    Thanks for using FixYa.

Faulty CIS (contact image sensor) or the flat cable connecting the CIS to the PCB. Error only appears when you scan/copy/fax. But printing function I guess is normal.
