Question about Canon Fax Machines

2 Answers

I have a Pixma iP4500 printer, Serial No. AAWE14845 and have difficulty when attempting to print onto a disc. Following all directions, when it gets to the stage of wanting the disc inserted on the tray, it then either pushes the tray out, or just sits there. Eventually a message appears requesting the resume button be pushed. This can go on for five or six times, with no response. Switching everything off, and starting all over will sometimes cure the problem, but not always. To print about 35 discs to date, I have had to attempt the process at least 120 times. Very occasionally it has worked first up.

    You suggested downloading a later driver. I see the last posted was in 2007. My printer is only about 7 - 8 months old, so presumaly would have the same driver. ? I have just changed computers, so the printer has only recently been installed on this, but I had the same printer problem with the earlier computer. You also mentioned the paper on the disc/s possibly being not suitable. I am using printable discs, and have four different types, but meet the same problem from the printer with any of those.

    This is a good printer BUT it was a nightmare to install. The 'blue screen of death'(crash) appeared repeatedly after installation and several reinstallations from the CD. There was no driver update on the Canon UK website and I thought I had a software clash which I could not resolve. After 2 days of hassle only by chance and as a long shot I decided to look at the USA Canon website for software downloads. To my surprise I found a more recent printer driver for the ip4500, posted in Jan 2008. Without any hitches this solved the problem - a lucky break.I hope this info. may save someone else a lot of bother.

Mechanically, there could be an issue but first thing you may want to do is update the drivers for the device, if you have not updated it yet, please click on the link below to get the device drivers, if you have an updated one, just flash it, somehow uninstall and then reinstalling the printer.

    just a follow up, have you tried using another brand of CDs? because as as per others, if the paper label of the CD is too thick, it will not be accepted by the feeder therefor taking the CD out.

    before we try to open up the printer and try to perform physical troubleshooting, you may want to consult Canon for the warranty of your device, this has at least 12 months on it. you won't want the warranty voided for this one, it sure looks like it may need to be sent to canon for repair.

My Hp officejet 4255 all in one is showing error 0xf0af8005.The printer carriage is hard up against the left side of the carriage rail. Can't fit cartridges. Help!!


Per HP, this error message indicates an "internal condition" and requires reset. In order to reset as they direct, please do the following:
  1. Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from the back of the product, but leave the product turned on.
  2. Open the cover of the product and remove the print cartridges.
  3. Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message to display.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product and wait for one minute.
  5. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.
  6. Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges.
  7. Close the cover. If prompted, print a calibration page.
  8. Reconnect the USB cable, and try to print a print job from the computer.
However, it sounds from your description as though there may be more to this problem, as you have indicated "can't fit cartridges". As this seems to indicate that perhaps you have no cartridges in the machine at present, please post further details.
If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

I want to print CD labels, what software and extra equipment will I need


You can print on labels without special software, or you can use software from the label company. There are label applicators that help center the label, but you can do that yourself if you are careful.

Or, you can get a printer, like the Epson photo 200 series that will print directly onto a CD, and comes with all the hardware and software.

Black cartridge problem device documentation. HP Officejet 4500


This type of HP 901 ink cartridge error ("Refer to Device Documentation", etc.) condition is likely an internal micro-electronic failure inside the HP 901 (or 901XL) black ink cartridge. These failures typically occur due to natural degradation of internal micro-electronics over time and can occur with brand new ink cartridges.

To confirm root cause and check the internal electrical condition of both black and color ink cartridges, please execute the 'Tap 41' cartridge's electrical diagnostic test below (refer to procedure B).

CAUTION: Be advised, the use of remanufactured ink cartridges is considered somewhat unreliable since the cartridges are already on their 3rd life when purchased new (off the internet or at select retailer stores). As well, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from China) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors.

NOTE 1: Unfortunately, alignment pages and internal self test prints will usually print Ok even if the cartridge is internally electrically damaged. Do not use these test pages as a proxy for determining whether a cartridge is good or bad, only the 'Tap 41/43' diagnostic test report can yield this information.

DIAGNOSTIC CHECKS:

A. Ensure BOTH carriage/flex cables and BOTH ink cartridge contacts are thoroughly clean before proceeding: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

B. Validate the cartridge's electrical health by running the 'Tap 41' diagnostics test. Refer to 2nd video procedure at the following link on how to activate and read the service test: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=620

a. Load Letter/A4-size paper into paper feed tray.
b. If any lights are blinking, first press Cancel to attempt to clear.
c. Press the * and # keys simultaneously.
d. Enter 124 at keypad. The 'Underware' menu should be displayed.
e. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the System Menu. Select Ok.
f. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the 'print-mech tap test'. Select Ok. Printer screen should display "code = 0".
g. Use the arrow keys to enter "code = 41" (or just enter 41 on keypad). Select Ok. The Tap 41 diagnostic test pattern prints.

--- Providing the HP 901 (or 901XL) color cartridge is partially functioning the Tap 41 diagnostic test print will be printed (this is a forced service print test which is mainly used for the evaluation of ink cartridge electrical health - the printer will attempt to print the diagnostic test print). A good HP 901 color cartridge should display 1248 good nozzles, while a good HP 901/901XL black ink cartridge should show 336 good nozzles. If the results yield anything different then the ink cartridge is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. Refer to 2nd video on how to read the diagnostic test print: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=620

---- If the printer attempts to print the diagnostic test pattern (1 page) then the printer is generally considered operational and functional, if nothing is printed, but the printer attempts to print the pattern, then the tri-color ink cartridge is either empty, clogged or severely electrically damaged (black ink cartridge is not used). You can remove the tri-color cartridge, reactivate the tap 41 test and the printer will print the diagnostic test print in black ink.

For more diagnostic tests and error bypass procedures, please visit the Inkjet411 support center: http://www.inkjet411.com

Hopefully this helps....
