Question about Canon XL1S Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Can't select clear scan in menu Canon xl1s

Clear scan remains highlighted in blue in menu. I don't have any special features selected (that I am aware of). I have taken out and replaced both batteries hoping it would resset the XL1s to factory settings.

Any suggestions as to why I can't select clear scan?

You have to Be in [A] mode the first option after [off] then press EXP. Lock and keep pushing the shutter + or - button until the viewfinder displays CS where the shutter speed were at, now you can select clear scan in the menu. Note: it will only work in this mode and fashion.

"The waste ink absorber is almost full" message?

This applies to the CANON PIXMA MP130 and other ink-jets made by Canon/Pixma.

According to the user's manual, "Ink used to clean the print head is absorbed by the waste ink tank. When this message is displayed, the waste ink tank needs to be replaced, or the machine requires maintenance". There is no information about how to replace or empty the waste ink tank.

In any case, you can try the following to clear up the error, but eventually you'll need the waste tank to be emptied or replaced. And as far as I know, you can't find the replacement parts to buy, nor the instructions to empty the waste tank.

Turn on your MP130.
1) After that press: Menu - Scan - Copy - Scan or Menu-Copy-Scan-Copy-Copy in some models, it depends on the date it was produced)
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Enter NVRAM ACCESS
4) Select SET ABS-M LEVEL TO 0
5) Select OK
6) Keep selecting OK untill you leave the TEST MODE

Then turn it OFF and again ON. Check if the error message is still there.
The following is taken from the Canon website, regarding this specific error:

"Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk."

As I mentioned before, I have not found any way or procedure to empty or replace the waste ink absorber nor the necesary replacement part.

I HAVE THE X47850 SCANER HOW DO I SET THE SCANER CODE SO I CAN SCAN?

Hello.

You don't need a scanner code (pin ?) to scan. Here are the steps from Lexmark Support:

Step Action 1 Make sure the printer is configured to scan over a network. 2 Load an original document face down on the scanner glass. 3
From the control panel, press pattlnk_1182007_1150-uparrow.gif or pattlnk_1182007_1146-downarrow.gif repeatedly until Scan is highlighted. 4
Press pattlnk_1182007_1151-selectbutton.gif. 5
Press pattlnk_1182007_1150-uparrow.gif or pattlnk_1182007_1146-downarrow.gif repeatedly until the computer you want to scan to is highlighted. 6
Press pattlnk_1182007_1151-selectbutton.gif. 7
If you set a PIN during network setup and are being prompted for it:

  1. Enter the PIN using pattlnk_1182007_1151-leftarrow.gif and pattlnk_1182007_1152-rightarrow.gif to select a digit location and using pattlnk_1182007_1150-uparrow.gif and pattlnk_1182007_1146-downarrow.gif to select a value for that digit.

  2. Press pattlnk_1182007_1151-selectbutton.gif.
8
Wait until the printer has finished downloading the scan applications list. 9
Make your selections using the control panel buttons. 10
