I've recently been given a Pixma TS3122. It was unopened and in the box. As soon as it's plugged in, the alarm light lights up (little triangle with lightening bolt). There isn't anything on the display, even when I hit the power button. I've tried looking up solutions but I can't find any. Can someone please assist me with this??
I recommend performing a reset of the printer. While the printer is on, unplug the power cord from the printer. While the power is off, press the power button 5 times. After 60 seconds plug the power cord back in and power on the printer.
If the error will not clear after the restart then the printer will require service.
If the printer is in it's 1 year warranty and you have a copy of the printer's proof of purchase, I recommend reaching out to Canon support for this issue. You will need to register your Canon gear HERE to access additional support options.
If the printer is out of warranty, you would qualify for the Canon Upgrade program. This is for out of warranty units which have been diagnosed to require service or are incompatible with a new or upgraded system. This program allows you the opportunity to purchase a replacement product discounted from the list price. Free ground shipping is included with your purchase.
