Cant clear Error Code E161-403E on canon iPF605
to enter SERVICE MODE the machine has to be switched OFF. While the machine is off, hold down the sheet or roll feed button and the information button. Keep these pressed and switch the machine on, keeping the buttons pressed until you see an S in the top right-hand corner of the display, then let go of the buttons. You should now be in SERVICE MODE.
later go to maintenance menu choice replace print head.
then follow their picture image to replace the print head.
first try to print nozzle check in services mode.
Scroll right to the service mode box (rightmost box) and press OK. You should then see the word 'DISPLAY'. Scroll right until you see the choice 'ADJUST' appear. Then scroll down until you see the choice 'NOZZLE 1' appear and press OK. If you haven't already loaded paper, the printer will prompt you to do so and then it will print out the NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN.
check go any nozzle no firing out ink..

Tried upgrading Canon iPF710 firmware
Power off and unplug the printer for several minutes. On power on the
printer had the same "ERROR E196-4040 Call For Service" after
Initialization. Next start the printer in Service Mode,
turn on the printer while holding down the [Paper Source/Feeder
Selection] button and [Information] button until Initializing appeared
in the display. An "S" will appear in the upper right of the version
display. Power down and do a normal Power On and the printer should do a normal initialization and came On Line.

that indicates poor connection of the hard disk connection.
you have to remove and put back the disk and if the problem remains then you have to buy one from your local market and put it.
That might solve your problem

IPF700 keeps replenishing with ink after power went down
I had the same problem and the answer was relatively simple: the head was not seated perfectly in place.
The left printing head of my IPF 8300 went bad and called for replacement (was popping an error requiring to reboot the printer and was almost 1000 days old), so I got a new head. When the new head was in, the machine entered the that replenishing ink spiral which first filled up the maintenance cartridge and then, after spending $100 to get a new MC, kept replenishing until one of my inks ran out and stopped with en error code. At that point I ordered 7 bottles of inks that were low and entered the service mode to clear the error and see what's going on. I ran nozzle check, and surprise, for the left head I just replaced printed nothing, completely blank! I put the old head back and the machine worked just fine so I called Canon to complain they sent me a bad head for $500 and they said not to worry, I have 1 year to get it replaced for free, but the problem is not the head but me not seating it properly. Too bad I wasted all that ink and a MC. To summarize, if the replenishing process takes more than 5-7 minutes after replacing the printing head, unplug the machine (will be only way to stop it) and restart in service mode (press power while holding down Load and Navigation buttons until the small S gets on the LCD) and print a nozzle check. If comes out blank for the new head, that is where the problem resides. Reseat the head and restart the printer. If problem persists Canon will replace it for free.

How to start in service mode for Canon IPF8100?
We have a Canon iPF810 plotter and to enter SERVICE MODE the machine has to be switched OFF. While the machine is off, hold down the sheet or roll feed button and the information button. Keep these pressed and switch the machine on, keeping the buttons pressed until you see an S in the top right-hand corner of the display, then let go of the buttons. You should now be in SERVICE MODE.
