Canon Printer Support: Troubleshooting

46

The Canon printers are some of the most popular on the market today. The Canon name is renowned for offering high quality, durable and functional printers and other computer accessories. You always get the very best with a Canon printer, but sometimes you may find yourself needing to troubleshoot a problem. These printers, just like any others, are subject to technical difficulties but you should be able to fix the problem easily enough.

If you notice the ink on your printer is showing up dry and barely visible on the pages when you try to print, but have just refilled the ink cartridge, you know it is not the ink running dry so there is another problem. Look under the ink cartridge and make sure it is not getting blocked in any way. There may be dust or dirt stuck on the cartridge which is keeping the ink from making it onto the paper.

If you need Canon printer support because you see an error message saying the “Ink Absorber is full”, try resetting your printer and see what that does. This should work to fix the error and if not you simply access the printer’s menu section and reset the ink absorber. Usually this is not a serious problem and you can take care of it yourself. If you can’t seem to figure it out, take it in to avoid wrecking it and causing further damage.

Another common problem on the Canon printer light flashing on and off. If this starts happening during use of the printer or even when it is off and not in use, the best thing to do is try resetting it. A simple hard reset-where you unplug the printer from the power source rather than turning it off with the power button-should be enough to fix this problem. If not you may need to open the printer up and check the light bulbs to ensure one is not broken. This may require the skills of a professional electronics repair person.

If you have any troubleshooting questions, you can always consult your printer manual or contact the Canon Company. They have a skilled and qualified support staff that is always ready and available for any questions. You can call about any Canon printer no matter what the make and model, old or new. You will need to have the make and model ready, as the answer to the same question can change from one model to the next.
