Error 1681 more than one Cyan cartridge installed
I have the same issue as well - I just open the printer, pop out the cyan cartridge, and reinsert it (the same one). This generally works - sometimes I need to do it once or twice. I figure I'll be patient and keep doing this until I a) finish the cyan ink cartridge, b) replace it out of annoyance, or c) through the printer out the window in total frustration.
Interesting to hear about "faulty" cartridges though - I shell out for the "authentic" Canon cartridges which you would think would be reliable - maybe I should switch to using the imitation ones if I'm going to have issues with them anyway...?

My computer can not find my new wireless printer.
Check the Lan/Wlan settings on the printer. Set to DHCP for address and reboot the printer. This should ensure the machine is getting it's IP address from your router. Recheck the IP address and subnet mask are in the same range as your computer and router and try a test print. If that does not work - manually set an address in the printer with a terminal value of 50 eg 192.168.0.50. Try that. If still no good, reset the printer IP to DHCP automatic and reboot the entire system. Please note if you are using Apple/Mac portable computers - your IP address range may change every time you boot in a different location.

I have the below mentioned printer a
- Turn off the machine and unplug the power cord from power supply
- Plug the machine back in and turn the power on
NOTE- If you disconnect the power plug, all the faxes stored in the machine's memory will be deleted
If the error message is still showing, then it is necessary to deliver or send the printer to an authorised repair centre. I am assuming it has run out of warranty, so any repairs will cost you.
You can find the details of your nearest repair centre using this link interactive repair centre locator
Also It may be worth checking the roller bar and rollers to ensure they are running at the same speed when flipping the paper over.

Many printers will not scan over a network, even when they are supposed to. Try connect to it with a standard USB cable and scan to PC directly. If that doesn't work - you have probably got a faulty scanner.
If the scanner works OK directly to a printer, then your issue is either LAN/WLAN bandwidth or an unstable IP address. Try fixing the IP Address rather than running DHCP address allocation eg set it at 192.168.x.150 where x is the range value for your network. Then set the printer port address on your devices to the same values and try again.
