Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Can you tell me what specific error code/message you're getting?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no error code, all i want to do is swap the black ink tank
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
normally when the ink tank is empty ,you open the front cover and the machine automatically moves the empty tank into position to eject . however because the ink tank i want to replace is not empty this does not happen

Thank you for clarifying.

You should be able to go into the settings menu, then to INK, and select Change Cartridge, to prompt the carriage over.

menu : maintenence..all the options are to do with cleaning and print head allignment
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

Not under maintenance, but there should be one for status or consumables (ink level) where you can access the cartridge change

no mention of ink tanks
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

If you aren't finding that, open the front cover and you should be able to slide the carriage over manually (with slight resistance) to the proper position.

If it won't move freely, unplug power to the printer and move it in that state.

Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

Do not turn off power or the head will park, just pull the cord right from the outlet.

I tried both ways .... it is locked in position

It seems like you are guessing ...I will contact canon do i cancel ?
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

I'm not guessing, the printer (at least at one time, on the factory original firmware) had the ink change option, I'm trying to give you some alternatives since it isn't there.

You may cancel from the help page. Best of luck to you.
