We had our computer shut down for 2 months, due to the hard drive failing. Covered by warranty, hence the long wait. We can't get the printer to start again. It keeps flashing the amber LED,6 times. Indicating ink cartridge probs. Anything done to this response is to no avail. The printer was working perfect before the hard drive failure. There is plenty of ink in each pot, so thats not the problem. Can the ink dryup/ or harden at the ink jets/ports?? To buy new parts for this will cos almost the Printers new price. Any good informed help would be appreciated.
I dont know whether it applies to this model but some canon models have a waste tank for ink used during cleaning. Once this is full you have to invariably call canon to empty it before it will work again. Check your led error codes to see if this might be the problem
