Question about Canon MultiPASS F80 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Multipass print head stopped working

When I went to reload paper on my printer I heard the head move and then heard a loud noise abd the alarm light went on advising me to "check Printer press resume key" When I did this the same loud noise appeared. When I opened up the cover to look at the print head, the head did not move. Is there a band or some device that my be broken? If so any ideas on how to repair or is it not repairable. A.P. DePirro

    Taks but d not work. n fact when I moved the head there was hardly any tension causing me to think that a band or restraint was broken. The ink heads are secure and the head can move both ways. Any other suggestions?
    Thank you

    I am having the same issue. a week ago I got a paper jam, so I cleared it and still got the same check printer... message. My ink seemed to be leaking too, so I took out the cartridge and tried to clean out some of the ink and noticed that one of the little pads that sits under the cartridge when it is all the way over to the right is missing??? Where could it be?!

Try to move the printhead left to right. and make sure there is nothing obstructing it. Also make sure you ink cartridges are in securely. If that doesnt work let me know.

I have a Canon MultiPass MP730 that is flashing the Alarm and reads cartridge jammed. However I can move the cartridge manually. The machine won't do anything because of the alarm. How do I fix this?...

To fix this you first need to remove the ink and the print head.
Wash the 4 ink pads in luke warm water.
Keep running the water over the bottom of the print head until the water shows no sign of ink colouration.
Make sure all of the print head is completely dry before replacing it into your printer.
After restarting your printer you will probably see the alarm light still flashing.
Now hold your finger on the resume button for up to 2 minutes or until you hear a clunking sound.
Hold your finger on this button and the printer will fix itself and the alarm light will stop.

Cannon multipass f80

Hi,I would suggest you to first trying unplugging/ switching off your device for 5 minutes. This restores and refreshes the device. Go for it
Let me know if this works, if it doesn’t then I’ll provide some other alternative solution.


Horrible grinding noise

The problem sounds like a broken or stripped gear in the printer. If the unit is under warranty I would contact the authorized repair station for that printer in your local area.

Alarm light on, Printer can't seem to grab the paper to print.

yes..they are deep and well protected. not something you want to mess with, frankly.


Alarm light flashing

Is the front cover on the printer(ifs its not the alarm light will keep flashing as there is a sensor that will trigger the alarm if the cover is not on or not on properly.Hope this helps?

LCD Error: "Check Printer"

I FOUND A SOLUTION that worked for me for the CANON F50:

F30/F50 Printer
1. Enter Service Mode - by pressing "menu then copy then #"
2. Select TEST MODE
4. Select 3 (EEPROM CLEAR)
5. Select 0 (INK COUNT)
6. Press Stop/Reset key
7. Press On/Off Key


Stop working

The covers are pretty easy to remove and access print catridges once you know how. Unscrew screws as they become available, 4 on back then two on each side then 4 on top. the balck plastic front bezels pop off as do the grey side panles. Try pulling out and up from the top. This can be a little tricky but I have not had to be too brazen and have not broken any panels. I am pretty sure that clicking sounds indicates broken parts and a trip to the repair shop. Basically the lock to keep the heads covered is not disengaging.
