Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I recently purchased a Canon MP380 fax, copier, printer & scanner from
Staples approximately 3 months ago. I installed (replaced) the larger black ink cartridge, however, it will not light up. I need to constantly get up & re-insert this cartridge; Sometimes, I even have to re-insert the last cartridge as well.
I know how to change cartridges; how can I solve this problem? what is the nearest Canon service center in Costa Mesa, Ca. 92626? Shall I take it back to Staples? Please advise.
I am not certain why this keeps happening, but my responses just don't seem to be getting posted and then I have to recreate them. Canon's site has a whole list of MP printers, that goes as follows: 360, 370, 390... Obviously, they have left out the one we are concerned about! :-)
At any rate, as I first stated, Staples return or exchange would likely be the best solution, if you can get it done. However, as their return policy (just as everyone else now) has become more and more restrictive and time-sensitive, this may not still be possible. If it is, I would try this first. I believe you have an issue with the sensor(s) and/or the print head(s), and it would be much easier not to have to go through the repair hassle...
At any rate, the Canon page addressing this same issue relative to the 390 machine is at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=9722.
(If it doesn't automatically come up with the list of issues, type in cartridge, and then choose ERROR INSTALL CARTRIDGE.
If you haven't tried it, try the reset procedure, which they state as:
Issue: ERROR LCD: PUT IN CARTRIDGE
Solution: The MP390 may require repair
