Question about Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8000 Printer
Error code E161 403E appears which i believe is a printhead problem, but I cant access the printheads as with this code showing i cant access any menu or any other option
Hold down the roll/media button and the info button while turning on, wait about 10 seconds and release roll/info buttons. You should get an S in the upper right corner. That puts you in service mode. Push menu then scroll down to maintenance then right arrow to head replacement. To get out of service mode turn off.

Go into service mode by holding the paper select and info button. turn on printer wait for an s to appear in the top right corner of the screen. let it continue to boot until it stops on its own even if it is another error. then turn off and reboot normal this time. If it still has the error E161 403E, then replace the head and do it again. This time go through the process to change the head, answering the questions the machine asks. If that doesnt resolve then change the carriage relay pcb. If that doesnt solve sell it kick yourself in the butt for buying the print head and the carriage relay pcb.

Before replacing the print head try to update to the latest firmware.

I had this 03130031-2F26 problem - and 03130031-2F13, 03130031-4027 on my Canon ipf8000.
Problem was broke ribbon cable from carriage to mainboard. Tiny break just before the cables are glued before they go inside the machine.
Hope that helps!
