Unfortunately, thats a firmware error. And canon is yet to release a firmware update for that printer.

how long have you had it?

1 year
Expert:  Dustin replied 1 year ago.

If its under a year old, you can get canon to replace it for free.

Lets go to this page and enter your serial number for the printer..

That will tell you if you are past the warranty expiration or not. If it hasnt expired, I would contact canon immediately to have them replace the printer with a new one.
