Question about Canon MultiPASS MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The alarm light keeps flashing and the LCD displays: check printer, press resume key. When pushed "resume" the machine buzzes and quits. When we press "open" and lift up the scanning unit, the printhead is not moving so we can't even check the ink cartridges to see if they are empty.

Oh dear, that means the motorized mechanism inside the printer that moves the print head has failed. I have seen it numerous times with these MultiPass printers... About the only thing you can try is simply unplugging the printer for a good 2 minutes, then replugging it in and hoping it "kick-starts" the motor. At best this is a temporary fix and it will happen again sooner than later. Many times this does not fix it either, that means the motor has already completely failed.

It can be repaired but it is very cost prohibitive... It is much less expensive to just replace the printer unfortunately. If you happened to buy this printer within 5 years (you probably did) AND used a major credit card (not a debit card) then it may be covered under your credit cards automatic electronics warranty. Many credit cards do this. Hopefully this scenario is the one you are in... and can call the card company to file a claim on the printer and get a refund.

Regardless though you will want to get a new printer... An equivalent, well better one really, can be had for $79 with free shipping and no tax. Check this one out:

We don't make any money off you buying a printer so please don't think I'm just saying that to try and get you to buy a new one, I assure you it is hardware failure you have on your printer.

Thanks

On the f80 you need a shop to go to service mode and get the error code and tell you what the problem is. Could be purge assembly, waste ink full, feeder error, printhead error, any number of possible problems.
