SOURCE: Failed to print

At the head you said 'paper thickness position'and then you seems to have ignored that and did all the other things. Is there an adjustment for paper thickness, a lever perhaps. It does seem to be with the paper feed or paper presence detection. Take a look around, is there something stuck in the paper feed track? Can you have pass a piece of paper through without it rucking up? Do these things see what happens Take a look also at www.fixyourownprinter.com

SOURCE: printer not responding to the computer

I had a similar problem with a Multipass F30 - check that the Canon Service "mpservice" is running. In the situation I had it was set to automatic, but the service was stopped. You can locate the Services by going to the Control Panel, then Performance & Maintenance if you are using catagory view or directly to Administrative Tools if in Classic View. Double click on Administrative Tools and then open Services. Scroll down and locate mpservice to see if it is running. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Canon MP460 ink cartridge not recognised

Perhaps the chips in the cartridges have failed? In which case you may need to replace them with brand new cartridges. If that doesn't work you might need to send it for repair as the cartridges might have damaged your machine.

SOURCE: How to reset the Canon MX850 Printer, after ink

One way is to hold the 'Stop/Reset' button for at least 5 seconds until the display shows a new message about ignoring the current ink condition. This does not reset the chip but it does allow you to continue printing with the refilled ink tanks.

You need to contact Xerox on this one. The LCD readout being blank and the machine not responding is indicative of an internal board failure. The red light being on all of the time is an indication of a fault. Without a front panel readout of the fault you will only continue to guess what the problem is.

Definately contact Xerox about your problem or get in contact with a Xerox certified technician in your area.

Hp 6150 won't print clearly --new cartridges are in


Clean the print head if you suspect that the nozzles might be clogged. Cleaning the print head consumes ink, so perform print head cleaning only when necessary.

Hope this initial info/idea helps.

Installing ink cartridge


I've had this problem too. The only way to make the message go away is to buy the ink from Dell. Although generic ink cartriges will work the printer will not/can not reset the "low ink" message unless you buy the cartriges directly from Dell. So you can use another brand, but you'll just have to overide the low ink message when it pops up by telling it to continue printing. Then you can tell when the ink is low by seeing it when it prints out.

When you moved, did you secure the print head and remove the ink cartrdiges? A Changer Error message is bad. Check the changer for any broken or bent parts.

Pixma 4200 compatible ink cartridge problem help


The ink detection is a critical function of the printer.

Ink actually acts as a lubricant for the heads, and running (Printing) without ink is equavalent to driving a car without oil.

I.E. It will seize eventually....

Hopefully you didn't print much without the ink, and your heads are still in good shape...

Here is a chip reset procedure....

With the original chip now attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to reset the chips.
  1. The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
  2. Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
  3. The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
  4. Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
  5. The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
  6. Continue to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
  7. Another dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button (for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
  8. The "Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds

Printing Error


try changing the ink cartridges.

 

This may have happened due to low ink levels. Also try reinstalling the printer driver.

 

 

If the print cartridges are damaged this problem will pop up. Even static electricity in human hand could damage the print cartridges.
