Canon PIXMA MX882 printer will not turn-on has yellow error light on.

Customer service will no longer accept calls about this printer. This unit worked well over past several years, only requiring ink changes.


  • I Unplugged the Pixma than plugged directly into power socket several times, yellow light persists. 
  • Power button when pressed will not turn on the printer.
  • Stop button pressed numerious times simultaniously with power does not reset.
  • Took all ink cartridges out and replaced, no difference - yelow light on triangle persists.
  • Ink cartridge holder use to move when cover was lifted but no longer.
  • Took out all paper and replaced in tray, yellow light persists.
  • The only way to turn off the yellow light is to remove plug from wall.
