Question about Canon MultiPASS F50 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Alarm light is flashing and "check printer" is flashing on the LCD screen When I open the cover, the print head stays all the way to the right (does not move to center) According to the troubleshooting section in the manual:
-I have tried pressing "resume" - doesn't clear the alarm.
-I have checked for a paper jam - there is none -I have checked for any obstructions to the print head - there are none.
-I have shut down and unplugged the printer, and upon reconnection, the print head moves to the center and then back to the right side and the same set of conditions appear as described above. So it appear there is nothing obstruction the printhead.
Is there anything else that you can suggest that I try?
According to the manual I need to contact support regarding possible "Waste tank" replacement. What is this? How do I access/check it? What do I need? How is it done?
I FOUND A SOLUTION that worked for me for the CANON F50:
1. Enter Service Mode - by pressing "menu then copy then #"
2. Select TEST MODE
3. Select (8) PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE
4. Select 3 (EEPROM CLEAR)
5. Select 0 (INK COUNT)
6. Press Stop/Reset key
7. Press On/Off Key

You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
