SOURCE: I have a canon MP630,
I've had the same problem with my MP630, and have tried everything to fix it - still not working properly. I've washed the print head, changed settings, changed printer drivers, upped the cyan on my preferences, but still get poor quality blue, which in turn skews all other colours. Can anyone help???

SOURCE: printer cover open error message
I had that problem too.
Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then wait for the printer to power on while still holding the cover open.
Then close the cover.
The buttons should work and th error message should be gone.
It worked for me.

here is the advice that Canon Customer Support give -------
Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding your Canon product.
In response to your query please be advised that you should try to remove the ink tank and reinstall it in the position. In case the error message will appear, please try to unplug the device for 1 hour from the power source.
In case after re-plug the device will show again the error message regarding the magenta ink tank, please be advised that you might either test the device with a new magenta ink tank in order to find out if the device or the ink tank is the faulty one, either contact one of our service centers for further examination of your device.

I've gotten in touch with Canon and have something a little different to try. At the very least the error should change. (Sorry, gallows humor). Please read this entire response before taking action.
After the upcoming test procedure, I have included a link and procedure to contact Canon tech support. The assure me they will replace any faulty tanks.
The purpose of this exercise is either rule out ink tanks that are behaving or isolate the one(s) responsible for the 1414. You should write down the results of this test. Please perform the following:
1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.
2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.
3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as they are not currently installed in the printer.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.
5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of the issue is the last ink tank.

Then click on e-mail support.
Fill out the form.
Under description, supply the following info:
Error 1414 Ink tank problem on my Canon PIXMA iP4200
The error won't go away.
I have replaced the <color in question> tank, reseated it, yet the error remains.
You will also need to list what inks are being used in the printer. State the type of ink that is being used and the order that the tanks are installed in the print head.
Provide the exact part number (such as BCI-6C, BCI3eBk, etc.) if possible.
The Canon support rep assured me they will be glad to replace the malfunctioning tank(s) for you at no cost. Please
respond with the results, and specify the ink tank(s) that were not recognized correctly.
They responded quickly, professionally and apologetically. They want to help get this resolved for you.
I hope this helps end the frustration you must be feeling. If you need additional help or clarification, click the ASK button.
If you could take a moment and rate this response, I would appreciate it.

SOURCE: "used ink tank is full"???
OK, Boys and Girls...here finally is the complete answer to the problem of the waste ink tank counter reset for Canon i250 and i350 printers.
1. Disconnect printer from AC power (take out AC cord or power off your power strip). Disconnect USB PC cable from printer.
2. Press and HOLD the POWER button (untill step 7).
3. Reconnect power cord (turn on power) to the printer.
4. The indicator should be green.
5. Press and release the RESUME button , the indicator should be orange.
6. Press and release the RESUME button again, the indicator should be green.
7. NOW Release POWER buttons.
8. NOW Connect the printer to PC (USB cable).
9. NOW...I opened "Printers" and saw that a "copy" of my printer (i250 or i350) had been made. Make that COPY your default printer and all should work...It did for me.
You May Thank Me NOW!!!!
I must say...I went into the "GUTS" of the beast and cleaned out the PADS (they are actually vacuum pads that the INK is sucked through during a HEAD cleaning) a very messy undertaking.
I'm not sure how much life this will add to your printer.
