Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Where does the P07 code show up? on the printer itself?
and, before you cleaned the ink absorbers, what error showed on the printer? the same P07?
How old is the priner in question?
I think that with careful consideration and good information, this problem can be solved. Let me know the above information, please. Thanks.
Was the P07 error showing on the printer, before you cleaned the ink absorbers ? or a different error ?
OK, I see. That problem must be quite annoying.
Please tell me how long it was, from the first occurrence of the P07 error, to the current occurrence of the P07 error and the cleaning of the ink absorbers ?
So it has only been a few days.
Have you tried an Ink Absorber Reset, since you cleaned the ink absorbers?
Did any of the ink absorber resets you tried, relieve the problem even briefly?
Have all the Ink Absorber Resets you have tried, been by way of entering Service Mode?
If so, exit from Service Mode. That's not how to do what you are trying to do.
For an Epson printer at least, there is a Reset Program issued (for free) by the manufacturer.
Let me see if there's one for your model from Canon.
Yes, that's likely.
I'm still looking, please wait a few more minutes. Thanks, meanwhile...
Try this reset program... supposedly only for iPxxxx series, but has been reported to work on a Canon MP280 (?) model:
and the full procedure is on a posting titled/headed 'Eureka', on this page:
Let me know whether that works.
That's OK. I will still take up the case, depending on how it turns out and as-needed.
Resume at your convenience. This page will take up the case where you left off:
True. I regret having pointed you to a wrong solution.
Epson has a printer reset program... Canon evidently does not now have one.
I'm sorry to say that aside from having your printer serviced by Canon (at some cost) I do not know of a good solution for this problem.
In case another Expert has a solution, I have Opted Out, opening the case to all other Experts in this category.
Thank you for following the JustAnswer.com process so far.
