I have a Canon IPF8000s. It was working when we bought. But my employee screwed me over and now it doesn't work. I am getting the same error. The screen (Small one where the information is displayed) is saying Multi-Sensor Error, Please turn off printer, wait a while, then turn printer on again. I do this to no avail. It seems to turn on fine. Display would say to close the cave cover and the ink tank cover, so I do this then it would go to the multi sensor error. Please help me, I'm just a kid (18) starting business, and I want to impress my parents. Help! Please!

SOURCE: Canon ipf8000 won't cut paper

Check to see if the cutter module has fallen off the print heaqd carriage. A common problem. It is a blue module that snaps into the left side of the carriage. Usually if it has fallen out, it can be found in the far left end of the printer, so you have to stop the printer, lift the lid and stick your hand into the left cave.

SOURCE: My canon IPF8000 printer has

In my knowledge the error indicates the voltage on the print head is abnormal. It is an hardware related issue.

Possible cases can the print head is faulty or the relays to the PCB may be faulty or the PCB itself.

We have to perform continuity checks between the relays and between relays and PCB. then we can confirm if the relay is faulty or the cables between them . If not print head would have failed and needs to be replaced.

This error is caused due to a faulty thermister however; you can check the fuser unit for any jammed paper around the upper fixing roller and try to clean that area. After this is done try to clear the error by entering the service mode, to enter press Additional functions, #. Then go to #7 Printer and press OK, then go to #4 printer reset and press OK, yes= *. If the issue returns then replace the thermister. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

What causes error 031300312618?

Farid: According to : this is "Print Head failure.
First try replacing the Print Heads and if the problem persist, re-seat all the cabling to the Relay PCB and the Carriage Unit PCB.
A loss or faulty connection to either one of the PCB's could cause the problem. In one case, the problem was related to both a faulty Flex Cable Assembly (QM3-2005-000) and the Carriage Assembly PCB (QM3-1995-020) for the IPF8000 and (QM3-3093-000) for the 8000S.

I have a Canon iPF8000 large format printer and a message comes up saying, "Clean Right P Head". I have cleaned the printhead as it states, but it keeps on showing on the printer screen. Because of this,...

Canon has bad heads for this LFP, it is not unusuall. Every model has this issue, canon even lower the price of head because of this.
When you replace the print head message disapears for some period of time.If Im not wrong I think that is P-01 or 03 print head involved.

I have had two of my Canon plotters give this error.message, I had to manually move the carriage unit and replace the printhead. On one of the plotters the error message returned, on the second plotter I was able to go into service mode where it asked me to replace the printhead. I just went though the motions since the printhead was brand new and I was able to get the plotter to function correctly.
