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

1 Answer

Alarm light flashing, please wait message

I returned from holidays to discover that my MP730 is not working. The alarm light flashes continually and the message, Please wait is on the display. Every few minutes the display says: Check printer, press resume key.

I have pressed the Resume key. Nothing happens. I've turned the machine on and off. I've checked the to see that the computer recognises the printer and it says it's ready.

I did get a weird thing pop up when I first tried to print (and discovered these problems) saying that the drivers were missing. I instructed the computer to reinstall them and it said it did, but nothing has changed. Please help!

    Alarm light flashing, please wait message occurred after paper ran out & was reloaded. Have tried turning machine on & off with no change. Have tried troubleshooting by turning spooling off, cancelling documents with no change.

I have a Canon MultiPass MP730 that is flashing the Alarm and reads cartridge jammed. However I can move the cartridge manually. The machine won't do anything because of the alarm. How do I fix this?...


To fix this you first need to remove the ink and the print head.
Wash the 4 ink pads in luke warm water.
Keep running the water over the bottom of the print head until the water shows no sign of ink colouration.
Make sure all of the print head is completely dry before replacing it into your printer.
After restarting your printer you will probably see the alarm light still flashing.
Now hold your finger on the resume button for up to 2 minutes or until you hear a clunking sound.
Hold your finger on this button and the printer will fix itself and the alarm light will stop.

Alarm flashes ink emptyhas ink! color was printing only yellow/green now prints only red/pink!


any chance it has dried out? run the test / head cleaning / did you reset the cartridge when you replaced it? generally if one or two colors work - the problem is the ink cartridge or the head for the colors not working. Did you remove the "tape" on the new cartridge?

Check printer & alarm flashing.I cannot get it to reset.


Electric connection terminals scratched? Maybe short circuit. Use warranty from purchase for repair.
