SOURCE: My pixma ip3000 wont turn on

This sounds suspiciously like a problem chronic to a certain type of power supply called a 'switcher' that uses a technique that employs high frequencies in the power conversion process and is caused almost always by the use of cheap capacitors in the path of high frequencies. The value of the capacitor shrinks from decay of the electrolytic solution used in these parts.
Currently, there are millions of these parts in circulation with a defective solution (poorly made in China) used in their manufacture causing failures in many different electronic devices.
The typical symptom is either a failure to turn on when powered up or simply stopping.
It is a problem that was endemic in certain fax machines in the 90s and since they were more expensive then, it made sense to remove the supply and repair them.
Quite frankly, this weakness earned me thousands of dollars as a sideline and once I had established the failure mode, I added a 50 cent part then could guarantee the repair for the 'life of the machine' and never had a single return out of many hundreds of repairs.
Unfortunately for owners, is the need for a capacitance meter to locate the faulty part and they cost more than a replacement printer.
If anyone has the instrument, the technical skills, and wishes to 'try this at home,' email me and I will detail what to look for.

I had this problem yesterday with my iP3000, but it turned out to be my own fault. I had randomly pushed the control panel buttons, as I tend to do that with printers, while I was trying to quickly cancel a print job.

The symptoms:
roller wouldn't advance, a lot of noise like it was trying to advance, then two yellow light error flashes. I knew it wasn't out of paper.

By randomly pushing buttons, I clicked the Paper Feed Switch which toggled from top sheet feeder to cassette.

I downloaded the e-user's guide from Canon and learned what those control buttons are. I simply clicked the Paper Feed Switch and it toggled back to top sheet feeder. That fixed it for me.

SOURCE: how to replace or clean waste ink absorber in Canon PIXMA iP3000

Cleaning or replacing the ink absorber is not for the faint of heart, it's a messy job,wear rubber gloves and old clothes. After the cleaning you still have to reset the counter so it will let you print again, so don't forget that part.
Here is a link to a web page with the full instructions for both procedures.
