I had this error with my canon printer that showed up one day with no warning.
Using my powers of deduction and understanding how power supplies work I found an easy solution to fix that that anyone can do in about 1 minute.
If you would like to know how to do it email me.
Removed email address per FORUM GUIDELINES
You mean someone actually did canon's job for them and figured out how to fix the problem dozens of unhappy customers are having, and they removed his address??!? To say I'm not impressed is a real understatement. It appears that printer manufacturers are already making money, not on printers, but ink. So why make a printer that self distructs, when we would keep buying overpriced ink? I will replace the printer, but not with another canon. I will also be telling all my friends about this as well. If all of us that have been wronged by this treatment tell our facebook friends, and all of our ether friends, perhaps we can make ourselves felt.
The MX700 is supposed to be a multifunctional printer. But if there is something wrong with the ink level or printhead NONE of the other functions work anymore.
My printhead gives an error now, and I can not scan or fax anymore.
Solution: I bought the Brother MFC J 4410. Now I am happy.
Bad for the environment because a potential good scannner/fax, which can not be used anymore, goes on the garbage dump. Strange policy of cannon, waste of investment.
I am surprised Canon is brave enough to have a public forum. The MX700 printer is loaded with defects one of which is the print head. I threw mine in the trash bin. DO NOT buy a new print head or ink for this model. No matter what you do it will not work I quarntee it.
I seldom join these circle forums because I have other gadgets to play with. Also is it really worth being having your email inbox spammed day and night. Well in this instance yes.
Canon the MX700 is a pile of rubbish and am surpised you take no responsibilty. Trust me the product id defective and one day you may hear from me again.
I have had my printer for about 4 or 5 years now. It has always worked perfectly. Then all of a sudden I get the message that the print head is incorrect and to reinstall it. I turned it off and unplugged it and it worked for 1 print job and then went back to giving me this message. I took out my cartridges and put them back in, unplugged it, etc. VERY upset that I can not do A single thing with it. I try to go into the menu, settings, etc. and am unable to do so because of this error message.
