Try this take an old empty cartridge and mix some ink cleaning fluid into each of the tanks. Now take some alcohol and a Q--tip and wipe the heads on the contacts where the cartridge comes in contact with the printer head.
There are three contacts that control color and one that controls the black . Clean with the alcohol, wipe with a Kleenex or a dry q-tip lightly. Now lightly shake the used printerhead to mix the cleaner into the residual ink that remains in the Printer cartridge. Now once the the cartridge has bee reinstalled in your printer go through a printerhead cleaning and head alignment evolution. Instructions for this should be in your printer manual which is a drop down program on the Printer Program Main File Icon. Some printers will automatically set up this program on the screen in easy to follow steps. If this doesn't work its time to get a new printer , add it to your Christmas list.

Take the print head out of the machine and sit it in a saucer of very hot ( just off boil) water about 10mm deep for a minute. Take it out and sit in on a pad of paper towel to dry briefly before returning it and the cartridges into the machine. Give it a deep clean and try again. If still no good, the print head has probably had it.

Check for screws under the rubber feet first. If none exist then prying the case open will destroy it. It is heat sealed at the factory.

three defects may cause.
1- change usb cable to different port. (test the port of pc with using pen drive)

3- printer may defect.

Get the latest driver from Canon's web site. Then uninstall the printer. Remove the driver from your computer. Use regedit to remove any traces of your printer from your registry. Install the new driver. That should do it.

I should have added that the extra plastic insert thing that comes with the CD holder is used when you want to print on the smaller 8cm disks.

According to the service manual an error has occured writing to the eeprom on the logic circuit board. I would look at the logic board as a culprit . You may need to check the voltage is correct at the power point and matches the printer required supply voltage. What worries me is what caused the logic board to fail and make a burning smell. Could be a faulty voltage regulator supplying the logic board or a fault in a power board..

When the ink cartridge is parked there is a pad that absorbs the ink when the head cleaning routine is run. Clean this out and the message will go away.

Try turning it off, unplug it from the wall, don't use a power strip. Plug it back into the wall (no power strip) and see if that helps reset everything...

i was having the same problem as the original poster of this thread, where nothing was happening, and this was what i did:

using a mac, i:

- spotlight searched "image capture" (that's what it's called) and opened up the app
- it somehow "woke up" my printer, aka connected the printer to the app, and it would scan the overview, but not scan the final selection that i made. see comnomad's post if you don't know the difference between overview vs. scan.
- so i restarted my printer
- i then did the overview, selected the parts that i wanted, and scanned it again

Two possibilities come to mind:
  1. There is a function in many printers that lets you print in the single colour of your choice. Check every tab and every "advanced..." dialog box you get when you are about to print. Then go to the printer's properties in the control panel and check whether there's anything like that
  2. Many printers let you print black with black ink, OR alternatively make black by mixing the other three colours CMY. Look for that setting in the same places and deactivate it
