How To Fix It

The power cycle should clear the error. In the event it doesn't, parts and knowledge will be needed. We always recommend repairs be made by a factory authorized service technician. In cases where a tech is not available, self diagnosis and repair may be an option.

We recommend not attempting any repairs without proper training, knowledge, and tools. Ignoring this recommendation could have undesirable results like severe injury, or death. In cases where the printer model is no longer supported, the following information may be helpful.

ProPrinting Systems may be available for service or parts.

Old Printers vs. New Computers

Depending on its age, your printer may simply not be worth repairing. Oder models may not have compatible drivers for new computers and operating systems. For information on Canon's current line of new large format printers, please see the links to the right. They are sorted by industry for convenience.
