B504 error code....

B504 error code. Removed cartridges and replaced them. they all have ink coming from them

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, have you double-checked the code? And what is the exact make and model of your machine?

B504...Canon Maxify MB 2320. It is about 5 months old

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

Wife sends over wifi...PC...Windows 11 maybe. I don't use her PC. It was working fine and then we replaced the cartridges. Prinited a couple times but is hung up now

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

She says it did appear that the magenta label was getting caught and we fixed that issue.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?

Has same issue black and white or color.

Please remove all of the ink cartridges then insert them back firmly into the carriage and close the lid.

Now, with the printer powered on, remove the power cord from the back.

Wait 2 minutes

Plug back in the power cord and power it on

Do you still have the error?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
purchased this spring, so 4 or 5 months. Wife used up the original ink that was in it

Unfortunately, the error that you are experiencing is an internal failure which would require repair/replacement.

The good news is that the printer is still under warranty so it can be repaired/replaced by Canon. To start the warranty process, please call 1-***-***-****

Not sure I have any proof of purchase, can they use a serial number?

Yes, they can; proof of purchase is not required.
