Question about Konica Minolta Office Equipment & Supplies
I am getting a wrench on the printer status screen. The error code that appears is H17. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to resolve the problem?
You need to replace the fixing unit. It costs $120 and replacing it is not a trivial job. You may be better off buying a new all-in-one (not necessarily an HP). I've had good luck (so far) with Brother.

SOURCE: Canon MP830 error code 6A00
The problem apparently is related to the purge unit located at the far right side on where the printhead moves back and forth.
there appears to be three common problems that causes the error, which is related to a paper jam error. 1) If its a new printer or even an older one, there are two sponges that collect ink and two plastic wipers located in purge unit may be loose or missing. Check to see if its it there. If not, it may actually be stuck somewhere.
2) there may some paper stuck somewhere around the printhead and or the purge unit or
3) there is a build up of gooey ink on the purge unit.
, I turned off the printer & unplugged it, move the printhead to the left and used long Qtips with Windex to clean up the ink around the purge unit including a little white plastic spring-loaded lever. also dampen the sponges with Windex. If you do this be careful not to dislodge the sponge or wipers. If you do, you can alway stick the pieces back in. After cleaning it, and checking the sponges and wipers are seated correctly, plug the unit back in and hopefully it will work fine. hope this helps.dont forget to rate as fixyaa
thanks and Godbless

Hi, According to my BJ-30 & BJC-70 user manual, if F12 is blinking, it is required for this Error code to get in touch with a Canon Service Centre. I had this in the past and being curious I removed the printer chassis from case the and found the problem to be a loose ribbon cable in the connector on the main board from the touch pad circut board . I also had the identical problem with my BJC-70. These printers are very reliable and compact, it seems to be a problem which I think comes about from these printers being so portable. It took me about 15 minutes to fix the problem for which I have made a small modification to hold the cable in place. Having said this, it may not necessarly be your problem but it is a starting point. Canon to my mind have not made another portable printer this good, so if you value it and can find a trustworthy technician get it fixed. If you want further info contact me here.

I had exactly the same problem (error Code:2,140,2) in Canon PIXMA MP250, and it was solved when I replaced both ink cartridges which were almost empty (almost without ink). I know an scanner problem is not supposed to be in relation with ink or printer problems, but that's the way I've fixed it. Good luck!
