Customer Question

I'm looking at the OCE CS2336 error E161-403e information and I cannot clear the message to get to the screen to install the new printhead.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That error code, in 'OCE' branded printers manufactured by Canon, means 'replace the left printhead', essentially (in machines with two printheads.)
In machines with one printhead, it would mean 'replace the printhead'.

For the model you have (CS2336) the printhead replacement would be this one, I think:

and the part # ***** on that page, for that printhead, is


and is called an IH-035 Printhead, and can be bought (at a high price) from

or for a lesser price (note: 'surplus quality' is the listed quality for that lower price) at:

I (or you) can search elsewhere using those part numbers, and possibly find an even better deal on this printhead. Let me know if you'd like me to search further.

You did not answer my question. I have pressed the menu button and and combination of information and paper load buttons but it will not clear the error screen. The print head cannot be accessed without clearing the error screen. Do you know how to do this?

The information you provided I already got from the Canon people.

I'm sorry to say that I missed that nuance of the question. I do not know how to clear the error screen, so I have Opted Out, opening the case to other Experts in this category. I hope one of them can give you the assistance you require. Thanks.
