Canon imagePROGRAF iPF Hardware Error 03130031-2F22
Hardware error 03130031-2F22 is a pump shift timeout. As normal, this can be a simple repair, or it can be rather involved.
What The Code Means
Not everyone cares, but if you have the desire to know, the 2F22 error means the target position could not be reached within a predicted operation time +3 seconds during pump operation or no sensor has been detected during a pump operation involving sensor detection. Glad you asked, right?
The first thing we will do to fix this error is to open the top cover and make sure there is nothing preventing the proper movement of the print head and carriage.
Once you are certain there is nothing in the path of the carriage, power down the printer. You may turn the power back on after a few moments.
If the error clears, there is nothing more to worry about. If the error comes back, keep reading...
Replace the Sensor
We always recommend calling a Canon Authorized Service Technician to complete the repairs. In events where Canon no longer supports your printer model, you can find independent servicers that can help you as well.
We DO NOT recommend making any repairs yourself, but if you do please take appropriate precautions and disconnect the power supply. Electronic devices can cause injury, death, or damage your printer further. We strongly recommend hiring a professional If you are not experienced with electronics.
ProPrinting Systems may be available for service or parts.
If the carriage travels heavily towards the stop position: a mechanical load error may be suspected. Otherwise, the sensor or the purge unit may be at fault.
Old Printers vs. New Computers
