OK, done that (again). Still same message and code.
Ok, can you remove the inl cartridges please, then power it off, power it on, put the cartridges back in and tell me if it clears the error please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Can't access the cartridges - not moved into view (control panel wide open)
If you move them by hand, do they then move?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes, but only further out of view to the left
Thanks It is the internal mainboard that has faulted. This then confirms it. I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you. I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know. And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I have had the Canon a few months, replacing a Lexmark whcih failed too. Probably easiest to junk this too. Not happy, rather than spend on returning it. Grrrr.

Incidentally, I have just returned from three months away, so have had minimal use of the Canon.
I am sorry to hear about this, I would recommend the Canon over the Lexmark, they are generally a lot more reliable, you just had bad luck with this one sorry Tom.If you need anything else, please let me knowThank you
