Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
No, how do I do it?
It printed a couple of pages after cleaning and then repeated the error message (Code B200) that I had received earlier. Cleaning seemed to be straightforward, but as I had no message to insert cartridges after waiting some minutes, I did return them to their positions without the message.
I'd really like to get this fixed tonight if at all possible, PLEASE.
Have looked with torch/flashlight and can see no liftable latch or lever. Orange light has stopped flashing, but I haven't asked it to print again. White light has also stopped flashing; shall I try printing again?
That doesn't seem to work - there's nothing to lift or slide back and forth as far as I can see and I don't want to break anything with too much pulling. Cartridges are out again; carriage is in centre of opening; light is again flashing; power is on. And I can't remove the print head. Where do I go from here, Freddy M?
I've looked at several of the videos but still cannot remove the print head from the machine. I've tried Cannon support, incidentally, in case the ip7250 has some secret opener, but the web site I'm directed to is in an oriental language or languages which I've no idea how to read.
Must go to bed now; will switch all off after your reply, Freddy, and maybe be able to find time to try again tomorrow.
After coming back to the problem before 6 a.m. this morning and rereading instructions that said I shouldn't use multiple power outlets for plugging in the printer, I brought out extension cord to one power outlet, plugged computer in there, and hey presto! the printer is now back on form. Although you didn't suggest this yourself, maybe the cleaning of the printheads and the resting of the printer overnight, plus isolated power source made the difference. Anyway, I am overjoyed not to have to ask neighbours for help or find a new printer or find a shop that does printing for others.
Thank you for your attempts to help - it is wonderful to have the printer operating properly again, and maybe next time someone gets into a similar problem you might suggest the single power source. (It's in the set-up instructions, but I hadn't paid sufficient attention to that point untill yesterday.)
Best wishes, Elizabeth Murley
