Question about Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8000 Printer

4 Answers

I need to change the printer head in our canon iPF 700. I have the new print head but, it will not let me change the head becasue the ink level it too low. We replaced all 6 inks last wednesday and only printed twice from it and all of the in drained into the maintenance cartrage. We did recieve an error code last week the number is: HDWR ERROR 03130031-2F1F, Does anyone know what the code means and how to correct it? is there anyway to replace the print head without changing the ink first?

You can solve this error code by removing the purge unit (take care of the ink).
Then you have to turn upside down the unit to check the gears. There is a white gear that moves in the ''air''. you have to re adjust the gear to transfer the move normally.
Then the problem dissapears.
Also you have to check if the motor is still moving.

I received the same error message and after I replaced the purge unit the error message went away. Replacing the purge unit will also help fix 2F22, well it did for my plotter.

That error refers to a purge motor failure. which could explain why the printer is saying that you do not have enough ink. I would recommend contacting canon or the reseller that you bought the printer from.

My Canon IPF 5100 printer black ink is really fuzzy, I have to prit dark grey as I can't read the black. I have cleaned the heads and done nozzle checks, what else could it be?


If prints are coming out fuzzy this is likely to be an alignment issue. I would recommend doing some alignment tests from your printer/printer software.

Hi,
maybe the print head nozzles are to badlly clodged or purge unit is faulty and cant **** out the ink.
Try to phisicallly remove print head, put the nozzles on piece of wipe, previouslly moistured with destiled water.Press gentlly few times. Dry it by pressing it on dry wipe.Put back in, run head cleaning once again and check the nozzle pattern.

If you want service manual, you can write me on emma.servis@gmail.com

The head management sensor detected an ink discharge error. A sensor sensitivity error was detected during head management sensor position adjustment.

Print head, head management sensor, or main controller PCB

1) Start by replacing the print head.
2) Visual check for any foreign substances around the head management sensor.
3) Replace the head management sensor.
4) If continuity of the cable between the head management sensor and the main controller PCB is abnormal, replace the cable.
5) Replace the main controller PCB.

Canon IPF 700 with a hardware error 03800500-2f30. Please help


this means that you have no ink flowing from the nozzles.
1.st if possible print a nozzle check from test print menu an see the result.
the other issue i can imagine is that you replace the print head without perform firmware update.
It is very important before replacing the print head to perform firmware upgrade (cd incl. inside the head box)
Also try a head cleaning B twice or more

Canon ipf 8000 print head problems


You need to boot the printer into service mode.

Hold down the roll/source button and the info button while you are powering on the machine.

This should get you booted into the service menu where you can then access the replace printhead function

When you have successfully replaced the printhead, reboot the printer to get out of service mode,

You may also want to check the firmware version of your printer and update it.

Updates can be found on the Canon website

Canon Pixma MP500 error


ok I figured out what to do. Open the over take out all your ink cartriages. Then flip the print head level on the left hand side up and squeeze the top of the print head (where all your ink sits on) and lift it up. You may want to blow off any dust that may be in there and put the peint head back and replace al your ink put the level down and you should be good to go if not you may have to replace the head.

The print head has an abnormally high temperature. You will need to replace the print head in service mode to clear condition.
